1 Woman I’d like to book an excursion.
Tourist information officer Of course. Do you know which one you’re interested in?
Woman Well, my husband and I both like history, so we thought maybe the castle … I imagine it’s quite atmospheric?
Tourist information officer Yes, it is. There’s also a night-time excursion to the Roman ruins.
Woman A night-time excursion? At night?
Tourist information officer Yes. The ruins are far more spectacular at night.
Woman No, no. I like to be in bed by 9 o’clock. The castle sounds much better.
2 Man Hi. I’m interested in booking an excursion for tomorrow.
Tourist information officer Certainly. What did you have in mind?
Man Well, the market looks beautiful. And I want to see the harbour too.
Tourist information officer Well, I suggest going to the market tomorrow.
Man Really? Why’s that?
Tourist information officer Tomorrow is Friday. The market isn’t as crowded on Fridays. At weekends, it’s really busy – too busy, in my opinion.
Man OK. Thanks for the advice. I’ll go to the market.
3 Woman Can I book an excursion, please?
Tourist information officer Yes, certainly. Which one are you thinking of?
Woman Well, I went to this temple twenty years ago. I’d really like to see it again.
Tourist information officer No problem. Twenty years ago, eh? It’s probably a bit different now.
Woman Really? In what way?
Tourist information officer All the temples are more touristy these days.
Woman Yes, yes. I suppose so.
Tourist information officer And the excursion is quite expensive, I’m afraid: £30.
Woman But I’d like to go there anyway.
4 Man Oh, hello. Can I ask about your excursion to the harbour?
Tourist information officer Yes, of course. What would you like to know?
Man Well, there’s a morning excursion and one in the evening. Which do you recommend?
Tourist information officer They’re both great. The evening excursion is much less busy.
Man I see.
Tourist information officer And it’s more romantic, in my opinion.
Man OK. I’ll go for the evening excursion.
