        I was unable to access my tour on the VoiceMap app. It would not validate any of the codes on my ticket. I am very disappointed.

        Hi Joel I'm sorry you weren't able to redeem the tour. On booking the tour, we provided you with an eight-character code that once entered into the app, redeems the tour. Did you contact us or Viator about the issue? We don't have any records showing you did and had you contacted us, we'd have provided you with your code immediately. Alicia

        This audio tour through the cherry blossoms should not be sold when the TREES ARE BARE!!!! I wasted money on information I could have read in a book!
        Response from Host, Mar 2021
        We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy the tour Andy, and that there were no cherry blossoms during your visit, even now a whole week after the start of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. We do think that the content is — if you’ll excuse the pun — at least somewhat evergreen. There’s plenty about the Tidal Basin, including four national memorials that you see on the walk, and we hope the story of the cherry trees and what they represent is relevant at any time of year. We're sending you a separate email regarding your feedback, please keep an eye out for it.
