I never post feedback typically, but I am making an exception. My children and grandchildren were in town and I planned for us to attend the Low Country Christmas at Boone Hall. We had high expectations as being represented by Boone Hall and due to the cost of the event. We were extremely disappointed. The idea is phenomenal but very underdone. I realize this is their first year and perhaps some feedback will help them. Too few food venders, too few activities included with price. The long lines with a let down of product offered. Santa's workshop was rushed through and needs more live interaction, live props, not just painted walls. The Christmas Village could have used some pizazz, like a snow flake machine, more shops or interactive activities for kids. The hayride was fun, but truthfully, needed much more lights, could really have been all lights and just fun Christmas music playing and a guide to encourage interaction, we sang one song at the very end of the ride. One of my biggest gripes was no facilities for babies, I had to change my one of my grandchildren on the floor of a building on her coat. Needless to say I will not be recommending this event. I'm sorry to be so negative but I had such high hopes as it was the main activity I had planned during their stay. The lights at James Island is far more economical and well worth the trip.
Why doesn't this site have a listing of problems people have and who they call to resolve them? I need to know who to contact about installing a culvert so I may construct a driveway to my property. Also, to whom do I speak about missing street signs? Minor issues such as these could be listed without having to tie up personnel in the office. Giving a list of nearby restaurants doesn't seem the primary business of the Town.
Yoga is supposed to be the art of breathing and letting go among other things. Coming here is so uncomfortable, I have a hard time breathing, let alone "letting go". Some, but not all of the Yoga instructors are rude and inconsiderate to the customers. Yoga is supposed to be so much more, and this studio "takes" instead of "gives". I would not recommend this Yoga studio to anyone even if they lived right next door.
This festival by far was the worst event I have ever attended. As a native New Yorker I have experienced a variety of cultural festivals and one should never try to adulterate a cultural event/experience. They only had one vendor selling Caribbean food, which was horrible. The rest were selling food you can find at a backyard BBQ? The parade consisted of maybe 7-10 people and only one person with a full carnival contest, the other person who was not of Caribbean descent had a partial custom on? This was a real disappointment and a shame that this event was supposed to represent a carnival/festival. They needed to better organize this event and advertise accordingly. The advertisement was truly deceiving and did not follow through with its promise. Beware of the events advertised in this city, it is never what they say it is or what you imagine it to be!
We recently had a horrible experience with this company. First off - the boat is in poor shape at best. The top is missing a bar and is help on by a rope. The windshield was cracked and the radio did not work. When we arrived - the girl helping us told us that this was the only boat they had running.
If that wasn't enough... the boat was rated for 10 people. We had 8 people and coolers. The boat could not go over 8 miles an hour.
We brought the boat back to the marina and were basically told it was our fault and the boat wasn't really rated for even the 8 people we had. We asked for a refund of the unused 6 hours. After being rude - they said they would only make us pay for the 2 hours used.
Here is the kicker... the two hours were then charged at the 2 hr rate (basically the 75% of the cost for 25% of the time).
The next time I want to be ripped off while being serviced by a 16 year old jerk - I know where to go.
Save your money and stay away.
