We are not disappointed with the Eco Tour, we are dissatisfied with this website. We were unable to make the proper reservations, so had to make a phone call to NLRA. Then we wanted to cancel our reservations due to the rain storm, and we could not communicate through the website to cancel the reservations. We went to the location of the EcoTour and waited for someone who expected us, and no one showed up. We made another phone call to NLRA and were able to cancel the tour which we never took. Then your website thanked us for going on a tour which we had cancelled on your website. This website does not work for the NLRA and should be corrected. The Hardings

The six of us showed up for the 10 AM tour but the boat did not show up. We were disappointed and frustrated that we could not get through to you by phone or email. The Audobon Center person, Christian Robinson, also was puzzled as he stood there with us waiting for the boat. Darryl De Vivo
