Very disappointed
, May 2020
When we arrived it was very hot in the bus. The driver turned on the air but the bus never cooled down. We were drenched with sweat by the time we got off the bus. The website said that we would stop for ice cream but we did not. The driver pointed it out to us and kept driving.

reasons for poor review: 1- tried to call tour company provider to arrange for hotel pick up several times on 2 different days but cant get hold of anybody and answering machine always full. better customer service needed 2- no A/C on the van during the entire duration of the tour. driver/tour guide turned on and off A/C but to no avail. didnt feel any air circulating inside vehicle. all of us in my group of 7 were sweltering in the heat & humidity inside van. it was hard to enjoy tour under such suffocating space 3- instructions where to find van at start of tour inadequate. we had to figure out ourselves where the vehicle was
Non Event

day before the 6/5/2019 scheduled tour I received a voice message from the local tour operator stating that my wife & I were the only 2 booked guests on that day's tour. as a result, the tour operator cancelled the scheduled tour. My credit card has been charged. The charge has not yet been reversed.

This was the best tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Videos were provided to set the scene of where each movie was shot and the locations and shots were explained. Stories were provided of the actors, directors, producers, and the location site owners. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
