I have never seen such irresponsibility. Although my friends and I booked this tour and were at the meeting place on time, no one contacted us and met us. After waiting there for 20 minutes we realized it was pointless and had to turn back disappointed. The guide just didn't come, no one cared about us, it was a very disappointing experience.
