Tour left us stranded in a foreign country
Teri_N, Aug 2023
I am giving this trip zero stars. The ticket issued without any direction to the meeting point. It wasn’t until after I placed a phone call to the tour guide that I found out we had to take a shuttle bus for 1/2 hour to meet them. So we took the shuttle bus to meet them and without so much as a phone call, the tour departed without us. Now Viator is treating us as a no show and will not refund the $500 spent on the tour. Viator you need to get your act together and hire reputable tour companies and stand behind your clients. Terrible customer service and communication. We will be cancelling all of our booked tours with you.

Tour company told us the day before the excursion they were unable to get tickets to the Vatican. Then Viator sent confirmation email and ticket barcode for excursion. Called And texted tour company to verify trip with no answer. Finally 45 mins before trip was to begin, the tour company responded and told us they have cancels and will refund us…45 mins before we were supposed to meet. We were only in port for the day and had to scramble to figure what to do with our day
Awesome trip to Vatican City!!

Michangelo's exhibit of David and his other sculptures was very impressive. Although very crowded we loved the Sistine Chapel and going to the Bassicillca and seeing the statues surrounding St Peter's Square.
Response from Host, May 2023
Sistine chapel and Michelangelo's David and so on are unique in the world and it is normal is crowd of people! please let us know if somethings went wrong with our services thank you

Ivette_F, Apr 2023
The tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable, and helpful. The driver was rude, late, and unprofessional.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Dear Ivette Next time, if you don’t want to get angry wait other customers taking pictures in St Peter’s Square, book a private tour. With a shared tour you must also respect the wishes of the other people. Thank you
Excellent service A+
