I have many complaints about Bayou Shuttle Service. First, it was incredibly difficult to even book my tour. I called multiple times and received incorrect information. Then, after I called groupon because I was having such difficulty booking, When I finally was able to to book (after a call to groupon about a refund), the person told me that of the two tours that were supposed to be available through my groupon -- I could only book one of them. When we finally did go on our tour, the guides left us sitting in the water for 20 minutes before starting, the guides offered little info or tour, and then the tour was over an hour short. Will never give Bayou Shuttle Service my business again.

It has been very difficult to redeem my groupon with Bayou Shuttle Service. The groupon reservation section of the website was not clearly marked so I had to call for assistance. When I tried to reserve a trip, it turns out the two I wanted were not covered under the groupon if it was a Saturday. But those trips were only offered on Saturdays! Half of the kayaking routes were not offered during the months the groupon was valid 'due to construction.' January was the last month I could book a tour and Bayou Shuttle did not post the January dates and schedule until Monday, Jan 13th. Luckily there was ONE DAY that WAS covered by the groupon. Never buying again. Not worth the headache.

I never got to use my Groupon because after making multiple attempts, via phone and web scheduling, they never called me back to arrange a date. I lost money and therefore faith in the services.

Our guide had zero personality. There was no narrative whatsoever about our trip. We felt like we were in a race to get to the end, just ducklings following the mother. And at the end no one asked us how we liked the tour. We could have done this on our own.

The company forgot to put in the add that the Groupon was only on Wednesday and Thursday only, most people work during the week.

Enjoyed the service. For $40 a couple it was something that caught my eye. At $80, I probably wouldn't have considered it.

Bayou Shuttle Service did not account for my booking, even though I called the office line to confirm my time and date for the kayak booking, and when I asked if there were aligators in this section of the Bayou, the individual on the telephone said there were not; however, we saw several during kayaking. The service did not last as long as the suggested tour time. Lastly, the area that the kayak tour occurred in was not clean nor worth kayaking around.

From Our Editors

Bayou Shuttle Service transports runners, surfers, cyclists, and adventurers toting rented kayaks and canoes to nearby trails and beaches for guided tours and lessons or DIY excitement. Experienced guides lead history-packed kayak tours such as the Houston Skyline Tour, which floats past panoramic views of towering skyscrapers, or the Adventures Tour, which increases heart rates with rushing rapids and an elevation drop more thrilling than jumping down the laundry chute at grandma's house. During all-day surfing lessons, students hop aboard shuttles from downtown Houston to Surfside Beach, where instructors teach nascent surfers to stand up and surf the waves. Bayou Shuttle Service also offers overnight surf trips, where pupils can sit beside campfires under the stars and tell scary stories about crab ghosts.
