recently my mate and i took a ride on american airboat tours out of goodland, fl based on the fact they were close to marco is. they claim to go to the everglades they do not they go out in the bay we saw nothing, the only wildlife we saw were the two blokes driving the boat, one was about 18 stones and about 1 and 1/2 mt. high and the buggar walked with a cane, the other driver or helper smelled like a beer and kept smoking on a ### one after the other, when they did talk they made no sence at all and they ran the boat aground, we were stuck on a sand bar for two hours bugs were everwhere. all of this for 45 quid the other airboat cos. charge 25 quid.NEVER AGAIN

    i have been on this tour it is a total "rip of" they over charged my credit card by $280.00 i had to get the ccsd to go and correct the problem i have learned that the owner (so called) has been "removed" from several locations in south fl. and has failed to pay fl state sales tax if you stop by the Port Of The Islands and speak with chris shucart he will be happy to inform you of a history that will make you wonder how this slob stays out of jail..dont know how stan puts up with this creep he is about 500lb and 5 feet tall looks like the worlds largest cue ball speak with ANY tour business owner in sw fl they will tell "stay away"

    This is the same complaint that was sent to the BBB over two years, the person that is writing these lies is, I suspect the same person that is under a restraining order by the collier county courts. As I have stated before, our policy is, if you are not satisified your money will be cheerfully refunded. To anyone that maybe be instrested, I will post this stalkers name and address upon his arrest, which I suspect to be very soon.

    my name is william bowsher i live in leeds, uk (england) i have sent the above reviews and i assure you they are 100% true and factual, i also went to the port of the islands where this creep was evicted and spoke with the owner who showed me a framed letter (s) of all the details, i also spoke with the other tour company (s) this man and his company is nothing more than a low class "bottom feeder". he did over charge my business cc and i had to go to the local police to get it corrected(the police do not speak highly of this man)they showed me his fl. driver license where this man list himself as 6ft 2in and 280lbs he is maybe 5ft 2in and yes very close to 500lbs. please check "naples new 04/02/2010 as his captain was arrested for battery and felony damage to an automobile (photo is shown )

    this is the same person that has posted the previous complaints, he says he made the mistake of paying $45.00 for the tour, just another one of his lies, due to the cost of gas we changed the tour price to $48.00 over three months ago.
    Again Our policy is anyone unhappy with the tour, will cheerfully be given a total refund.

    I hate to even give this idiot and answer, if you notice the complaint filed today was signed by hans stastionion Hanover Germany, then the person that responded to my answer said he took the tour 7 months ago, and only today got around to making the complaint, , He forgot who he was and signed the answer willian bowsher. He just doesn't Understand!!! I think its time to turn this over the the State Attorney;s office they can find from whom the e mail is being sent.

    william bowsher is the uk web site for complaints on rip off tours and attractions in the us and you are one of them, anyone that is intrested please look on line for this company along with blogs, and you will find many complaints and concerns regarding this company, too bad whom ever is responding for this company does not understand the "complaint board' on line posting, as they should spend more time trying to improve its reputation and less time trying to blame someone else.

    YES ITS TRUE WHOM EVER IS RESPONDING FOR THIS COMPANY IS UN INFORMED AND OR HAS A VERY LIMITED EDUCATION, WHEN YOU FILE YOUR COMPLAINT IT WILL GO IN UNDER THE WEB SITE AND YOUR NAME WILL APPEAR ONLY IT YOU SO DESIRE, I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT THIS COMPANY SAYS IT HAS A $3.00 SUR CHARGE FOR FUEL. CRUDE.OIL PRICES HAVE DECLINED $17.00(us) PER BARREL DURING THE LAST 67 DAYS. AS FOR THE TIMING OF THE COMPLAINT MOST PEOPLE WHO TRAVEL DONT HAVE THE TIME TO RESPOND ON THE DATE "OF DISSAPOINTMENT", I TOOK THIS TOUR OVER 3 YEARS AGO THE TOUR WAS "JUST OK" BUT MY CREDIT CARD WAS OVER CHARGED, I FIND THE COMPLAINTS TO BE FACTUAL. THANK YOU FRANK TAVERIDUE, ITALY

    yes we all agree ( iam spaeking for all honest tour companies in south fl.) american airboat tours goodland fl, managed by jerome brownlee is NOT what our tourist and guest should be exposed to when spending hard earned money for a family outing and a trip on our prestine waters, having credit cards double charged, having a $3.00 sur charge for fuel (gas is down over 27% during the last several months); and not taking people on a safe and informative (fun) outing; iam the owner of a very large land based tour company and we will NEVER send any of our customers to american airboat tours in goodland fl and i know i speak for most of the other tour companies and hotels, and yes we all hear of the many concerns being posted from all over the world.; it is now time for local officials to get together for local action to be taken. thank you randy s.
