Safari that never happened

When we arrived we were told the open air vehicle pictured would be replaced by a 15 year old van with tinted windows that don’t open, and would be making only one stop. We declined and asked for a refund. Other tours were booked solid for the day so we missed out. l-(

Mike was a very knowledgeable tour guide! We loved learning the history & present day info about Catalina Island. This tour is by far the best, most comprehensive, tour out of all the other choices. More than worth the price. Would HIGHLY recommend!!!

Taxi is cheaper.

All this does is drive you to the air port and back. You may or mayn't see anything at all. Could of paid for a taxi ride up and back for way less and seen the same thing, which on this trip was NOTHING.

I didn’t get the experience we thought we would. Other than seeing a few old bisons and the airport not much to see. I also thought the driver drive way too fast on the back home stretch. Overpriced. Sorry.

Not a safari but a bus ride on the dirt road for 3 hours. The guy seemed knowledgeable but mumbled a lot. We didn’t see any bison . As a recommendation bring a jacket and binoculars. Maybe the morning tour might give some more chances to see more animals

Great trip, poorly planned

The drive was rough and loud, making the tour guide difficult to understand. The ride should have had a guide in back, who could communicate with your customers more efficiently. The views were spectacular but we drove by them too quickly to enjoy them.

I was surprised to see that you had no idea what happened to the trip that you sold and got paid!!! The trip was cancelled! You even sent me the reminder to get the tickets the day before!!! You let 5 seniors stranded on the island board half to death for the entire afternoon! I DEMAND FULL REFUND of the payment . Please do your job! Update your information of any trip you serviced!
