El guía mandó un WhatsApp de que no podía ir. Que fuera al punto de encuentro y que buscara a los guías con paraguas naranja. Fuimos y nos presentamos. No sabían de nuestra existencia. Es más, eran guías de otras empresas. Al final hicimos el tour con otra empresa a nos “acogió “ en su grupo y la verdad q muy bien.
