  • These people did a promotion where I could take my whole family and do a Dolphin experience. For three months I tried getting a time that we could go and they kept calling me the day before to cancel. The vouchers where about to expire and we tried a 3rd time. After getting hotels and everything, they call us and cancel again the night before. We tried to get a refund, they or the voucher company refused, so the voucher company negotiated for a 4th time and got us in. The morning that we had to go, I told him that we were running a bit late and the man actually told me that that wasn't his problem and hung up on me. I tried calling multiple times and was only 20 minutes away but never got through. From that point on, I tried communicating with them and they never took our calls. I wasted so much money trying to get my family into this "great experience" and all we got was heartache. They have absolutely no costumer service. This was absolutely my worst New Zealand experience. Stay away from them!
