Disappointed
Trish_B
, May 2021
Disappointed, that we could not get a refund for my 80 year old Dad who has the beginnings of Dimentia. He would not let anyone else drive him, and he got lost. He has lived in San Diego for years,and is a retired Master Sargeant, US Air Force ..can't refund one dinner for that out of 5 people??? Also no music, dancing, or fireworks like last time .. not worth money. We will not be back. We flew down for my sons Marine Graduation too. Super disappointed

No trams or bus
david_r
, May 2021
I was very unhappy at both parks there were no tram or bus in the park. My right knee aches really bad when I walk alot. Your website didn't mention that because of Covid19 no rides. In fact the site said I would be riding on a tram at Safari Park. Very misleading sorry I booked through your site. Won't happen again I promise. Never

Too little for too much $$
Michael_R
, Apr 2021
A lot of walking with little results. Many things (food, shopping) still closed. Do not waste your time (feet) and money until they are fully open. Then prepare to spend $$$ on specific safaris.
