We booked two “Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks Day Trip from Las Vegas (6648P5)” through Viator for January 2. We subsequently called the operator, Southwest Adventure Tours, and were told to wait at the hotel at 6:00 am for pickup.
We called Southwest when we arrived December 30 and again on January 1 to make sure that the trip was still on (trip can be canceled if not enough tourists). Nobody answered the phone either time, so we left messages. Since I was not contacted, I assumed the trip was a go.
We arrived at the pickup point by 5:50. As we waited past 6, I notice a phone message left at 5:55 am. The trip had been canceled at the last moment because the tour driver called in sick! He offered to shift the trip to January 3 or January 4 instead.
I called back at 6:05 to discuss the alternatives but nobody picked up the phone.
We got our refund through Viator when we called 10 days later. It was still disappointing that the trip never took place. Such opportunities are rare for us.
