Hi Judith, we are sorry to hear about your experience. We would like to sincerely apologise that you were left by the group, even after you called our local contact advising that you'll be 5 minutes late. It appears there was a communication breakdown with the guide advising that you'll be late. Given this, we understand that you have been contacted to apologise for this and have been provided a refund.
