Verified booking
Travelled in group - Sep 2023
I booked onto the tour and received a confirmation email. Waited by the castle for someone in tartan as instructed. No one came so I messaged the guide.. Received a reply a couple of hours later from the guru saying he had not received any notification of the booking. Feel frustrated at the time lost for exploring the city.
