Viator give me the money back
, Jan 2021
Since 8:03 am I’d been there at the meeting point at the dragonfly coffee shop, Portland, for about more than 40 minutes after the time we supposed to start the hiking. I’d been texted and called her phone number viator gave to me, but no answer. At 8:45 am, so I realized she would not come. Then I decided told viator that I cancel it, then after I sent mail to viator, she texted me that she was in Hawaii. That’s not funny at all, I don‘t know how it could be? I gave her my forgiveness, lucky me I am only my self. How if I bring children, old people or other people, waiting that long outside in the cold weather. I don‘t want to kill other people business, but Viator needed to know and asked me to review. Viator gave me the money back. Thank you

I apologize from the bottom of my heart for inconveniencing you! The day before your instant booking I traveled to Hawaii to help my elderly mother (Covid-19). I neglected to "turn off" the booking option and you were able to make an appointment. Of course you were fully refunded immediately, and if you return to Portland I will be glad to offer you a FREE tour in compensation. Sincerely, Sarah

Sarah picked us up at our hotel, then drove us to Forest Park. Along the way, she gave us a brief history of Forest Park. We did a five mile hike on easy to moderate trails in Forest Park. Absolutely beautiful! We loved it. We were glad we had Sarah as our guide, as just trying to figure out where the trail heads are, where to park, and which trails to hike would have been frustrating for us non-locals. It is an actual forest with over 80 miles of trails but have no parking lots and no visitors' center. Sarah is a wealth of information regarding the park and the city of Portland and just a delightful person.
Sarah was so friendly and so...

Sarah was so friendly and so informative that made the whole day special. She is full of energy and life. We hiked the forest and it was so much fun. It was one of my favorite days in Portland. Sarah loves Portland and she will inform you with a lot of information in a very fun and friendly way. Thanks Sarah for the great hike. Oh I almost forgot to say that she takes your pictures and emails them to you. She is a great photographer as well....What a bonus that was!!!!! It was a joy and a privlidge to have her as my tour guide.
