First of all as the owner of the company I would like to sincerely apologize for this person's experience with Chesapean Outdoors. If you look at our reviews we generally score 5 star reviews and have a 4.5 overall rating- see the previous reviews below that were recently shared. We always encourage people to reach out to us directly regarding their experience (good or bad) with our company so that we can deliver the best experience possible. This tour was done almost two months ago and I was never contacted by this person about their experience, only a poor review several months later. If they had contacted me about their experience a refund likely would have been provided.
