What a great place to learn about the Okanagan aboriginal culture and the endangered species! Do not miss the powwow as it will make your soul happy.
We visited in July 2011. We loved the outside museum, the interior displays, and the movies. The outside displays also create a great opportunity for sightseeing.
But this is not why we are writing today.
We are writing today to share with all of you a severe case of "no freedom of speech" on TripAdvisor. We got back from a trip to Okanagan, BC, Canada, in July 2011. We wrote two reviews first. One was about the Burrowing Owl Guest House, a charming bed-and-breakfast in Oliver, and the other was about Hester Creek Villas, another charming bed-and-breakfast in Oliver. The two reviews were posted by us on the EXACT SAME DAY, approximately 30 minutes apart. Here comes the craziness: while our review of Burrowing Owl got posted the next day, the other review we wrote at the same time for the other B and B (Hester Creek) still hasn't been posted today, which is one month later!!!!! We wrote to Trip Advisor Customer Service and asked how come two reviews we wrote on the same day for two similar venues in the same geographic location - ended up being treated so differently as far as being posted on line....;.. We got an answer from Trip Advisor Customer Service that didn't make any sense - telling us that the two reviews were treated differently because they were for "such different facilities" - which showed that the person who "responded" to us was either CLUE LESS or CARE LESS, because this was completely inaccurate. The person also said in their email that the "review of the review" may take up to ...one week. Well, it has been a month, and to this day, ONE MONTH LATER, our review of Hester Creek Villa still has not been posted. So we are wondering what happened: was there a lazy person who threw our review away rather than spending time to review it?? Was it that Hester Creek or TripAdvisor staff did not like our review and hence it didn't get posted???? This should be a lesson for all of you out there who are spending your valuable time trying to review things on TripAdvisor... this is what you can expect!!!
