      BEWARE - CRETE CITY TOUR HERAKLION
      BEWARE - CRETE CITY TOUR HERAKLION We paid 50 euros for two adults and a child for a 'Hop on, Hop off bus tour' which advertised 'multilingual sightseeing sound system in 8 languages' around Heraklion. We were very disappointed by our experience; there was no sound system in any language and the driver did not stop at any of the stops advertised on the map. People became frustrated and when the driver was asked about the sound system and 'stops' his responses were limited and lacked interest. On returning to the port we spoke to the woman who had sold us the tour; we outlined our dissatisfaction and we pointed out that she was falsely advertising a service that could not be provided as there was no sound system on the bus we travelled on. We were given numerous excuses and finally due to frustration we walked away in disgust. People beware 50 euros is a lot of money to pay for a bus ride!!!

      Even though the GlassBottom boat wasn't running because it was too windy too see any fish, I was given other tour option
      I had a super time. Pickup went well, tour guide & bus driver were great! The trolly tour suggested by the guide was super!

      SCAM
      A SCAM! Before the tour company says we overslept, we arrived bright and early at 5:30 for our 6 am departure as instructed. No one was present. Location given was an entire street- no specific address provided. Emailed and called with no response.

      Always a great time!
      We had been to Captain Jack’s mangrove airboat tour twice before. This time we added the grasslands airboat tour this time (departed at a nearby location). Both were worthwhile for most ages. This year it seemed that multi owners had combined offerings.

      It was just fine but not great
      Overall the tour was fine. The boats were much bigger than I expected and overcrowded. Each row holds six people and there are five rows. If you aren't in the end two seats on each side you won't be able to see. They are maximizing profit over experience by cramming these boats full. I wouldn't say this is true Everglades experience either. You're basically going through 90% open water trails. There is a constant stream of other boats out there as well. It's like a highway. One other annoyance was that I had a scheduled time for our tour but when I got there they told me it would be an hour wait. What's the point of scheduling a start time? If I could do it again, I would spend a little more to do a smaller boat in a more authentic experience.

      SCAM
      Bought 2 tickets from US2U Travel for the airboat ride at Holiday Park for $146. No info about location was given until after I purchased the tickets. Come to find out if we had purchased tickets directly from Holiday Park, they would have only been $83. Complete scam and waste of money.

      Overall fair experience. The bus ride wasn’t pleasant.
      Had to wait a long time for the bus to arrive. It was supposed to depart at 1 PM. It did not depart until 1:45 PM. Same issue when departing to go back to Miami. Had to wait 45 minutes for all the people to board the bus. Also was annoyed by the bus driver. He kept pushing really hard to get tips from passengers. Maybe mentioned it five or six times telling pastors to tip 15 to 20%. I want to mind him mentioning to tip. But it was obsessive. Overall, I have a car that I’ve been renting and I wish I had just booked it directly. I would’ve saved money and time.

      Great trip. We did get to see some wildlife and the alligator show was awesome. The only negative was that the trip took longer than expected and the bus broke down on the way there and we had to wait for a replacement.

      $26 at the gate verses $69.
      Bought tickets with a pre slotted time at 1:15pm, showed up has to waited in line for a hour to get our “wristbands” paid $69 versus $26 if you had just bought the tickets from the booth. Than was told it would be another 2 hour wait until we were able to get on the boat. Arrived at 12pm left at 5pm and was up charged by US2U. I do not recommend this third party to anybody.

      Pretty cool boat ride
      The boat ride and the exhibit after was the best part. We did not see any gators in the water but it was still a nice experience. The education we got at the exhibit was excellent.

      Just DON’T
      I booked this trip for my 19 yo and 13 yo daughters with to go with their Grandma. They requested this activity over multiple other options in Miami for their very short trip. My mother-in-law said it was not worth any amount of money spent on the trip. The pick up time stated 9:30, but it left at 9. Luckily, they were there early, but missed the opportunity to grab breakfast, snacks or drinks. During the boat ride, they only drove about 4-5 mph, they didn’t see a single alligator, and when they got back they saw 2 very small gators at the exhibit. They spent $60 on 3 burgers, 2 gator bites and 2 fries…but never got the gator bites because the establishment claimed they never paid for them. Overall, I care less that I spent money in this trip and more that I wasted the little time my girls had down in Miami sending them on this horrible experience when they could have been doing much more amazing things. Anyone reading this … find some better activities or a better tour establishment.

    This was an incredibly frustrating, almost horrible experience - saved by the fact that the boat tour was enjoyable and pretty (although we saw only one, small alligator, who was obviously upset by the 4 large airboats circling it). The large bus picked us up 20+ min late and proceeded to spend more than another hour picking up additional customers. The comments from the “guide” on the bus were useless. You can buy tickets to the exact same airboat ride at Holiday Park - it was pleasant, but don’t expect to see alligators. Apparently, seeing 1 is a stroke of good luck. Then you have to wait (for us, over 30 min) to see the alligator show, which is very depressing. There were 18 alligators contained in a very small area that consisted of sand, concrete-lined ‘pools,” and fake grass.

    TAKE A DIFFERENT TOUR!!!

    Tour is longer than they say. Well tranfers are anyway. We were to,d 940-140 and got back at 3 40
    940 pick up for a drive to the glades .
    Get on the boat at 1140 . It is a large air boat ,there will be about 15 of you on it
    . A few(3) bursts of speed for 30 sec or so. Otherwise just putteering around the glades for an hour or so ,listening to some info about grasses. Saw 2 aligators. Back to land waited 15 min forthe stadium to fill so a guy could show us an alligator. IF YOU WANTED TO you could get your photo taken with a baby alligator. There appeared to be another couple of animals in small enclosures/cages On the bus for a lunch stop at a truck stop diner ....back to hotel.
    The touts are asking$55 for this ,you can bargain down to 45. I cant help but feel that there other things i could have done

    This was the absolute worst excursion I have ever participated in. False advertising at its finest. There was No explanation of transportation in the details of the ad. We signed up for a 60 minute tour without being told it was a total of 6 hours with two different bus rides for over 2.5 hours each way. I was happy to st least see a bathroom on the bus, but oh wait…it was locked. Then approximately a mile from the fake Everglades national park (actually Everglades Holiday park) our bus broke down and we were left on the side of the road and told by the bus driver that we could walk the rest of the way or wait on the highway for 2 HOURS until another bus could get there. After walking to the park the boat was not the boat as pictured in the trip advisor ad. It was enclosed and had plexiglass that you could barely see out of and the guide had a microphone with so much static that we could hear nothing he was saying. We saw more iguanas and birds than alligators and when we finished there was no bus there to take us home. We paid $300 to get us back to south beach and when we called to request our money back we were told absolutely not you got your tour!

    Do not book with this company. I had a 9:30 slot picked and no one called nor showed up to pick us up from our hotel. I tried calling and emailing the company to get no answer nor response by email. My wife and I waited over 30 minutes at the meet point and there was 0 communication from this company. No one picked us up and we got a call around 10:15 from the company saying that they had cancellations and didn’t have enough ppl to go on the trip. I still have not got my refund!

    We sat on bus for more than an hour picking up people while sitting in local traffic. Driver often leaving the bus to find the customers. We bailed out and got off the bus and went back to hotel as we didn’t want to waste so much of our vacation time riding around picking up people and seemingly going nowhere. I will not recommend this to anyone. They ought to refund my payment but I doubt that will happen.

    We recently reserved a trip to Everglades with pickup from a Miami Beach resort. All of our email confirmations noted a 9:30am pickup and, at 9:10, we noticed a missed call on our cellphone. After speaking with the transport company, they reported that their notes were for a 9:00am pickup and they had already departed (with other guests) for the excursion. Concurently, the tour operator being reviewed here called and tried to pass it off as a cancellation of the tour due to weather. When I explained that I had already spoken with the transport company and know that the tour is still operating and we simply weren’t being picked up at 9:30, the tour operator stated (in a panic) that they’d offer a full refund and subsequently hung up on me.

    After leaving a factual albeit negative review, the operator posted a response including my wife’s personal information in the hopes that we’d delete the negative review in order to protect our privacy. Buyer beware.

    Dear Mr. Becker, Thank you for your second negative feedback regarding the same booking. Our records indicate that our customer service team called you the morning before your tour advising you that the tour had been canceled and fully refunded to you due to forecasted lightning in the Everglades. The safety of our guests and guides is our priority and traveling by boat during lightning in Florida is in fact a safety concern. We are so sorry the weather related full refund caused so much anger with you and led in your unfavorable review without having actually experienced the tour. Sincerely, Vincent

    There is no afternoon pickup from local hotels for this tour. This website makes you believe that there is. When I called reservations to ask why we weren’t being picked up no one answered for 45 minutes. When they finally decided to get back to work, I was told that the only pickups occurred during the morning. So we had to run to catch a trolley and got to the bus as they were ready to leave. THEN I was told that they were overbooked and we didn’t have seats. I told them that WE WERE getting on that bus. They apparently bumped someone because we were put on the bus. Then we got to the airboat center, went out into the Everglades and saw absolutely nothing but sawgrass, water, and water lilies. This tour is not worth the money that you’re wasting. Avoid at all costs!
