    Five Star Tours put us on the wrong bus for this tour and we were left stranded in La Jolla. They were unable to dispatch another driver. We took a Uber to the Safari Park at our cost. At the end of the day we got on the bus to come back to the Santa Fe Depot and the bus was overbooked. Viator provided an incorrect count of our family members to Five Star Tours. There were not enough seats for all passengers coming back! My son sat on my lap. Today I called the Five Star Tours Manager and he stated if I want a refund I must contact Viator. Absolutely terrible service!!!

    Had a great time at safari park, but would not recommend five star tours to anyone.

    Driver was late to pick us up.
    Driver took on extra passengers on the drive back plus he brought a friend along.

    It was convenient. But the local operator needs to have our cellphones handy in case of delays in pick-up as what happened to our group. There was some accident on the freeway which we were not aware of and so the pick-up was delayed by an hour. It wasnt fun staying out in the cold for over an hour, especially since there were kids with us in the group.

    No complaints as the rides were on time and comfortable. Would have liked it if the driver would talk to us and act as a guide. Thanks Viator - you did a good job again!
