Double charged-Terrible Customer Experience
, Sep 2021
I was charged twice for tickets. I originally did not received a confirmation from Viator for my tickets. I purchased from Maui Ocean Center direct, when we arrived, the woman said it appears you have two reservations, I will submit a refund right now. Nope! No refund ever happened. The marine life we did see were beautiful, but the experience was not worth the price. Regular charge was steep but getting charged twice painful. Don’t waste your time or money.
