These are the over all scores from Expedia for the best overall tourists.

Expedia

The top 10 tourists overall are:

1. Japan
2. Britain
3. Canada
4. Germany
5. Switzerland
6. Holland
7. Australia
8. Sweden
9. USA
10. Denmark

The Brits love to denigrate themselves. It is part of the culture. So even though they did very well in this survey, they still had to find something bad to say about themselves. Here is another article which goes into more detail about how different countries scored. click here

They obviously haven't met too many Germans. Both in Italy a few years ago and just last month in Norway on a midnight sun cruse they were far and above the rudest most unfriendly people we met.

Interesting, but not what I have experienced in my travels. My friend and I both found the French to be absolutely delightful people and the people in Spain were fun and friendly to tourists.

I always make it a point to mingle with the locals when I travel. As an American citizen, some may not be so hot on the war and politics (neither am I), but overall, I have heard that we are generous, caring and friendly people.

There is good and bad everywhere.

Here in San Pedro we get a good cross-section of world travelers. I can't ever say that any group has a particular behaviour. People vary in disposition the world over...and you must make allowances for language difficulties. Mostly, people are nice, friendly, and want to enjoy the company of others.
