Therefore we should have been picked up at the meeting point which never happened. We waited for almost have an hour there at 4am. But unfortunately nobody showed up. We never heard of him again. Very unprofessional.

Hi Sorry but currently our tours only start at 4:45 so if you where there at 4am you would have missed us. You never contacted us about missing the tour so we would not have been able to contact you further.
