I booked this excursion as a 25th wedding anniversary present with high hopes per the review on Expedia's website. All of the steps were followed to confirm hotel pick up location and timing. We waited nearly an hour at the pick up location. Over the course of the hour. we called the company's person of contact various times, and were continually told "We will be there in 15 minutes." This however was not fulfilled, as they never showed up and we were forced to forgo the excursion and received no compensation for the failure to provide the excursion from the company or Expedia. It was an absolute disappointment.
