No tour due to minimum numbers and no call back

About an hour or so before our tour, we got notification via text that it was supposedly cancelled but listed a different time than that of the booking. So, we reached out for clarification to no avail and waited at the spot at the time but nobody ever called/messaged us back nor showed. We were interested in a rescheduled tour but like I said, no response back from anyone. A few days later and we still haven't received our refund even though it shows "Completed" on Viator.
MADRI GRAS way of style .

Good experience. My family have fun dressing up the MADRI GRAS style. I only wish that they give us more time to dress up and take pictures. 15 minutes is not enough. And also to make more selection, separate the guys from ladies. So that it’s easier to pick up your choice to wear
