Con tutta la tecnologia a disposizione e’ intollerabile non avvisare se il tour non viene fatto.. questo mi ha creato problemi per l’organizzazione della giornata. Pessima esperienza

Una vergüenza, plantón. No se presentó ningún guía, ni avisaron de que se cancelaba, aún habiéndonos enviado un correo unas horas antes recordándonos la hora del comienzo del tour. Allí estuvimos esperando durante 15 minutos otra pareja y yo. Hora y media de viaje en tren para realizar este tour, y no avisan de que no se va a realizar. Menos mal que pude hacer otro tour con tourstilla, me apuntaron sin haber hecho reserva con ellos. Esos sí que son unos profesionales, no cómo esta empresa que son unos sinvergüenzas. Yo al final vivo en España, pero la otra pareja era de Argentina y menudo mal sabor de boca se han llevado. NO Reservéis con esta empresa!
