The tour was good, BUT it did not...
Karen F
, May 2016
The tour was good, BUT it did not include any bird watching. It was grossly misrepresentation of what we got. We specifically asked if it was the bird tour and were told yes and given a bird guide folder. Then we did a town and country tour. The only birds we saw were a couple of flamingos at the salt ponds. No birds were pointed out and we made no stops to see any. I have already sent information on our experience to both the museum and your company. I museum replied you didn't. The museum said that our experience certainly did not align with what you had told them you would be doing. We were very disappointed.
