No one showed up

Booked the tour and waited at the pick up point and no one showed up. I tried calling their number and was lead to an automated voicemail saying they are only open 9-5 Monday to Friday despite tours taking place on Saturday at 8:30. Will edit this review once I hear back from the company.
