Después de confirmar la reserva por correo electrónico en la mañana programada, envía un mensaje de WhatsApp dos horas antes para cancelar, sugiriéndote dos días después. Como estaba en Calafate solo un día más, solicité que nos permitieran visitar al día siguiente. Ni siquiera se dignaron a responder a esta solicitud. Considero esta actitud una falta de profesionalismo y respeto.
