The driver did not turn up at the designated meeting point. We were then advised to catch a taxi to the Catacombs. When we got there we were handed the tickets - which we note are valued at 8 Euros - and told to then catch another taxi back. We were advised we could seek reimbursement for the cost of the taxis. We did not get the service we booked. The experience was woeful and disappointing, and left us walking around for 30 minutes on a 33 degree day looking for a driver who didn't show.
