Response from Camissa-tours, Owner at Half Day Camissa Township Tour
Responded 24 Oct 2019
Thank you for your review you do realise that you were not the only guest on the bus the driver guide had several pick ups before your pick up your hotel has two entrances one on St Georges mall and the other is on Hans Strydom ave when the driver guide called the office struggling to locate you he was at this entrance. Also our tour duration is 3,5 hours including the return transfer on get your guide site their site does not allow us to check 3,5 hours it is either 3 hours or 4 hours our website will give you a clear description and duration of the tour I have mentioned this to the 3rd party site to rectify with the aim of avoiding this from happening again.
