  • Don't bother. Booked this tour for 5pm. Waited outside the Travel Centre for the guide to arrive, which never happened. Called the after hours number at 10 past five to be told that the guide had been waiting inside the travel centre. Only the travel centre was closed, and I was told by staff to come back later. Instead of calling me with the phone number provided with my booking, the guide just left... Apparently this "business" will refund my money "sometime next week". Don't bother with this mob. Unprofessional, unorganised and unapologetic. Not to mention that i was told "you should have waited inside" despite the website being down, and trip advisor not providing any details about waiting inside. This company is a joke.
