Worst booking experience-- EVER.
, Sep 2021
We booked the tour on Wednesday September 1st for Sunday, September 5th. Later that day I found out my dad had been put into the ICU. I called (Hoodoo adventures) as soon as I found out to cancel the tour as we live in Ontario and were planning on going to Kelowna for the weekend and no longer could. Hoodoo didn't answer. So I left a voicemail. They never called back. I called again the next day and they told me I could only cancel within 21 days of the booking. I asked what they could do for us (I would have been happy with a credit), and explained the situation to them. They said they couldn't do anything. Seriously? How insensitive?! So, we spent $348.00 for nothing and couldn't even get a credit back. My boyfriend works for Air Canada and he will spread the word at work to never book using hoodoo adventures. Terrible, terrible experience. The flights, hotel and every other adventure we had booked for the weekend was accommodating at giving us a 100% refund. Thanks for nothing!

NOTE !! This person left the exact same review on Google - The google review now has a 4 star rating as it has been dealt with to our customers satisfaction. Here is a a copy of the communication between us and Sam the reviewer. Hey Sam, first things first, We are sorry that your father is in ICU. We still want to discuss options with you - We were never given the chance to discuss this scenario, you simply swore very loudly down the phone at us and abruptly hung up on us before we could have any kind of constructive discussion. To say we never offered you a credit is simply not true, you didn't give us a chance. Your actions were such that our booking manager did not feel comfortable to call you back. Our cancellation policy is on our website and as operators we will always try to be flexible and understanding where ever possible. We would greatly appreciate the chance to improve this situation. Its not too late to call us back, please ask to speak to the owners and we will happily talk over all options. Sam replied - since deleted - her partner called Hoodoo and we discuss all issues at hand. Next reply from hoodoo Hello again Sam. We absolutely apologize that the initial response we gave may have been poorly worded. We regret this whole situation, especially when you are dealing with family health matters. Please do call us when you have some time. Please ask to speak with one of the owners and we appreciate the opportunity to create a much better result for everyone. We genuinely hope your father recovers quickly.

Every part of this experience was great. A very relaxed group, easy going and easy to talk to. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and the vineyards they took us to. I would recommend this tour for anyone who likes outdoor activities, fun and a little wine tasting.
Lovely kayaking and wine

Had a lovely afternoon kayaking and learning about the area from Ben our guide. Trip was a reasonable distance for most people, but not too short. Went to some great wineries and had a nice snack also. Overall a great day!

Four of us, plus our Guide Ben, went out on the lake for a grand time. The weather was decent and with a mild wind at our back, the paddling was easy. Ben provided a detailed orientation on what to do and expect on the outing, so there were no negative surprises. We even saw a few Bald Eagles along the way. It was my favourite activity that week.

this was our first activity in the Penticton region. What a beautiful place to explore. The only way to appreciate the grand scale of the lake is to kayak! our guide was very helpful, giving us some knowledge of the area as we paddled through the lake. we had a small bite to eat after kayaking, which wasn't as advertised, but never the less tasty and just enough after a little light exercise. Again as with the brewery and bike tour my only criticism would be the advertising of the tour. If the word WINE is in the title you'd expect it to be included in the price you're paying. However the small print did show that 'alcohol is not inc', however it does not explain that you visit approx 5 wineries and each charge 5 pp for tasting. What you taste varies from winery, some only allow you to taste what they have open and not what you're interested in. The amount of wine per glass that you try isn't enough to drown a fly, let alone taste, however they do give you upto 5 wines to taste and if you purchase a bottle, they deducted your tasting fee. I must stress however, this is nothing to do with Hoodoo Adventure co or any other tour company, this is purely the wineries. BUT, please don't let this put you off experiencing this area with this tour as it is a lovely way to enjoy the area and be treated to a chauffeur driven tour of the wineries.
Wonderful experience!!! I highly...
