Kindly let us know which tour you are referring too as our guides arrived for every tour booked, including one that a request for a change of date and time and no one showed up. We would like to know what went wrong to avoid a repeat. Update: We found the error and will refund you. There was a request to reschedule a tour with a guest with the same first name. We rescheduled the wrong tour. Our sincere apologies.
