Hi guys, I am extremely frustrated here as I cannot seem to get a consistent quality in the response from Chat GPT in all of its versions. I have the paid subscription and I am trying to ask chat GPT to follow a prompt that helps me make superior quality descriptions for some day trips.
For the past two days I must have spent 12 hours trying to polish the prompt so that the outcome is always of a similar standard. However, I feel like giving out now as it is ridiculous. You work for hours on it, eventual get one or two answers in the structure, style and format you wanted, but then all of a sudden GPT reverts back to not following all the guidelines in the prompt. Does anyone have suggestions for this? At first I thought it was the prompt that was wrong, but I must have tried a 100 different ways of providing outlines and GPT consistently seems to forget to go through the full prompt rules after two or three successful results.
The most frustrating one I that I am specifically asking it to write two or more paragraphs, however, 50% of the time it chooses to only write one.
Here is version 500 of the prompt in case anyone has suggestions:
Create a day itinerary from the provided texts. Rules:
Begin with the trip descriptive paragraphs directly, so no titles here. Write in a realistic style, avoiding superfluous adjectives or vague language, unnecessary embellishments. Only use adjectives when necessary. Do not write corny, over-the-top phrases. Craft clear, detailed, and realistic portrayals of the day’s activities, distributed across 2 or more paragraphs. Each paragraph should focus on a different event, activity, or site visit, providing clarity and sequential flow. Incorporate appropriate context to explain each event, activity, or site. Emphasize unique aspects of each trip or activity. Ensure comprehensiveness, avoiding summaries that skip details. Avoid repeating words.
Paragraphs should follow one another without space in between.
After the descriptive paragraphs, leave one free line and then write: “Schedule:”. In the line directly under “Schedule:” detail the day’s main activities of the day. Write them as sentences, one after the other. Exclude mentions of spare time or optional activities.
After the schedule, leave a line and then write: “Approximate Trip Duration Section:”
Here is an example of how your output should look:
"Our second day exploring the Colca Canyon starts with a very early visit to La Cruz del Condor (The Condor’s Cross) viewpoint. This is an ideal spot to observe the majestic flight of Andean condors and the impressive depth of the canyon. Observing these magnificent birds, especially on bright sunny days which are common in this area, is a highlight. You can usually see between 10 and 15 condors overflying just a few meters away. However, it’s important to note that this is a weather-dependent activity, and condor sightings are less likely if it’s rainy.
After spending some time at the viewpoint, the journey continues with a drive back to your hotel. On the way back, there’s an opportunity to make short stops at the traditional villages of Pinchollo, Maca, and Achoma. These stops offer a chance to catch a glimpse of local culture and traditions. The afternoon is then yours to explore or relax as you prefer. There are various options for local hikes, such as the Uyo Uyo pre-Inca Site in Yanque or San Antonio in Coporaque, or you can choose to visit the hot springs again for a few hours of relaxation.
Visit La Cruz del Condor viewpoint for condor sighting and canyon views.
Drive back to the hotel with optional stops at Pinchollo, Maca, and Achoma villages.

And with this same prompt I have received answers such as this:
"Today’s journey begins with a scenic 160 km drive from Arequipa to the Colca Canyon. As we leave the city and ascend into the mountains, you’ll enjoy beautiful views of the Misti, Chachani, and Pichu Pichu volcanoes. Then, we’ll enter the Salinas and Aguada Blanca national reserve, where you’ll have the chance to spot llamas, alpacas, and wild vicuña herds grazing on the local pastures. After reaching the “Mirador de Los Andes” viewpoint, we’ll make our way to the Colca Valley, where our hotel is located. The afternoon is free for you to relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside or take a leisurely walk along the fields and terraces.
- Scenic drive from Arequipa to the Colca Canyon
- Visit the Salinas and Aguada Blanca national reserve
- Stop at “Mirador de Los Andes” viewpoint
- Free time at the hotel to relax and explore the area
Approximate Trip Duration Section:"
Which is not what I asked for. Or this:
"This morning, prepare for a 4-hour drive to Pampachiri Stone Forest, one of the most unusual and impressive landscapes in Peru. The journey will take you through the breathtaking high Andean scenery as you make your way to the small village also named Pampachiri. Upon arrival, you’ll settle into your simple yet comfortable hotel, ensuring a cozy place to rest before your exploration.
Afterward, we’ll venture out from the village, driving south along a narrow and steep valley surrounded by untamed and picturesque countryside. The rugged beauty of this remote area sets the stage for a unique adventure.
Upon reaching the Stone Forest of Pampachiri, you’ll have the opportunity to witness its extraordinary geography. Over centuries, volcanic activity has given rise to peculiar cone-like formations, ranging in size from just a few centimeters to towering heights of up to 4 meters. The stark contrast between the grey and red-hued cones against the backdrop of a brilliant blue sky and the lush green vegetation that thrives naturally in this isolated region creates a truly authentic and special atmosphere.

Which would be correct. The frustrating thing is that both outcomes come from the same prompt and input text. Therefore I cannot rely on chat gpt to help because it’s quality is unpredictable.
Would love to read about any suggestions, help, comment about this.
Thanks in advance
