Please credit by account for the 2 groupons i purchased for this trip.this refers to groupon for bus trip to key west on davis tours. The bus we were on was not checked before we left. it was a cold day to start with - `14 jan trip- and the driver did not know how to shut off air, so we froze going down. we were suppoosed to be picked up at 8:30, bus driver arrived an hour late and told us wr had to walk about half mile to get bus. I have cerebral palsy and this was an undue hardshiip, bus company made no reasonable accomodations for the handicapped. the bus was not checked for safety before we set out on the drive home -passengers on the back of bus already knew from trip down the tire was failing. about 20 minutes into trip, bus was no longer driveable due to bad tire. the company had done no planning on what to do incase this happened, so they unable to locate anyone to change the tire. the drivers of the 2 buses lied to the passengers and we were stranded on the highway. second bus returned a few hours later and took as many as it could back to dania. we arrived back at our hotel until 6am, there fore ruining our plans for the day, we were only there for the weekend from new jersey. please credit by account for the value of the 2 groupon.

Terrible service; aweful, incompetant personnel. We did not get home until 6am Sunday morning and the driver drove from 10pm until 5am the next morning- 7 hours straight through after the 2nd bus broke down and our bus had to return from Key Largo to Key West to pick up all of the passangers but 5!! AWEFUL, AWEFUL, AWEFUL!! We will NEVER use Davis Tours again. I am writing them a letter of complaint for their terrible service.

We were dropped off at Jimmy Buffets and told we would be picked up at 9pm at the same spot. It was cold so some people waited inside and others stood outside. I was inside and at 9:30 still no bus. About 9 40 the crowd outside started walking around the corner. Nobody knew what was going on we just followed the crowd. We walked 6 blocks to find the buses sitting there. One of the drivers had came and told a couple people to follow him. Well he should have come inside the restaurant and got other people. The drivers had to walk back because not everyoone had came. Because they didn't know.There were 2 buses. I was on the 1 that had a tire blowout. When it happened a fellow passenger told the bus driver something was wrong he pulled over and looked around the bus and said nothing was wrong. Kept driving then we started smelling something burning. I went up and told the driver he said 'I'LL JUST TURN ON THE AIR". I got upset because I didn't want to get stranded on that bridge from Key West. He kept driving at regular speed and I screamed at him to pull over something was wrong. He did and we discovered the tire had blown. He called for the other driver to come back and the other driver said "NO. His passengers want to go home. The owner was called and said he would send someone to change tire, then we were told because it was after midnight no one was available and the other bus would come back. 3 hours went by and we were still sitting there stranded. The other driver and OWNER decided not to answer their phones anymore. Finally at 2am the other driver shows up and jumped off the bus and started SCREAMING AT US "I DON'T GIVE A F@CK ABOUT YOU GUYS (AND YES THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID) HE LOCKED THE DOOR TO THE BUS AND TOLD US WE WERE NOT GETTING ON. HE STARTED RANTING ABOUT HE DIDN'T CARE IF HE LOST HIS JOB HE WASN'T GOING TO HELP US WE HAD TO WAIT UNTIL THE MORNING FOR HELP. HE STARTED TALKING IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE. I REALLY THOUGHT HE WAS HAVING A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN. The people on the bus that he had locked in were trying to get off and when he unlocked the door I grabbed it and ran on and took a seat. Finally about 8 people stayed and got a hotel the rest of us piled on the bus. I was extremely upset being treated worst than animals. Mr Davis is a coward he knew we were stranded and stopped answering his phone. I would never recommend or use their service again. I will be calling and asking for a refund. I understand mishaps happen but if they have been in business for 35 years surely he should be prepared for emergencies. And we were treated very poorly.

A series of bad decisions by the owner and the driver made this trip a very disorganized event. My husband and I purchased 4 tickets for a bus trip to Key West leaving Dania Beach on Sat. 1/14 at 7am, returning at 1am Sun 1/15. A little confusion with getting on the 2 buses, but we departed on time. We were dropped off at Margaritaville about noon as planned. The driver told us to be at that location at 9p for a 9:30 departure or we would be left behind to find our own way back. After enjoying the sights and tastes of Key West we returned to Margaritaville at 8:30 but he did not appear until 9:23, told us that he could not bring the bus to this location and we had to follow him around the corner. He was upset and hurried and would not take the time to communicate this new plan to others who were in the bathroom or at the bar. His response was "we're leaving them." My husband and another passenger went inside to gather others as the driver galloped off to the bus which was about 3 blocks away. He gave the excuse that Key West township changed the rules suddenly and he could no longer park where he left us. We all got on the bus hoping no one was left behind. At 2+ hrs into the return trip the bus turns around without any explanation from the driver. After much speculation and mounting anger from the passengers, he announced that the 2nd bus had broken down and we were returning to pick them up. We were infuriated that he showed little concern for our need to know such major decisions. As more questioned were raised, he announced the plan to have extra passengers stand or sit on top of one-another since there were not enough seats for the additional 30+ passengers during the 3.5 hr return trip. The willingness of the driver and the owner to create such an unsafe overcrowded situation raised our alarm. We called the Key West sherif's office. The sheriff responded and an officer stopped to bus to inform the driver that he would be ticketed and fined if he went above the bus's legal capacity. With this new understanding, the owner arranged for 5 passengers to stay in a hotel. I acknowledge that unexpected things happen when transporting people but the poor communication, scant planning and lack of courtesy made this much more stressful than necessary. No, I would not travel with this company again.

From Our Editors

For the past three decades, the Davis Tours fleet of buses and motorcoaches have ferried tour groups to scenic locales, from the island landscapes of Key West to the killer-whale tank of the Miami Seaquarium. Their staff can plan entire custom trips, from transportation to meals, or they can simply furnish groups with a bus. The prepackaged tours, meanwhile, whisk groups through the Florida Everglades in an airboat or off to a Brazilian dinner theater show with unlimited sangria.
