This was the worst airport pick-up experience that we have ever had. The driver for Viator's operator, Airport Transfers, was one hour late in arriving at the London Heathrow Airport Terminal, had difficulty finding his car in the parking lot after finally meeting us, exhibited road rage with another driver during our trip from the airport to our hotel and was making a personal phone call while driving. The vehicle reeked and we needed to ride with the windows down in order to tolerate the one hour plus ride from Heathrow to the hotel. We called Viator's operator four times before the driver finally arrived. During the initial call, we were told that the driver was at the airport in our Terminal looking for us and during a later call we were told that the driver was parking his car. When the driver finally arrived, he was holding a small piece of paper with our last name handwritten on it that was barely legible. We could never recommend Viator to anyone.
Travel delay caused missed flight and transfer
Carolyn_B, Sep 2023
Our original flight from OKC to Houston was delayed numerous times - finally at 6:40 CDT we knew we would not make our connecting flight from Houston-to London. This would be 12:40am London time, meaning it was too late to cancel our pickup. In all the stress of trying to find other flights that would allow us to make our Houston to London trip and making arrangements to stay in Houston overnight and arrange transportation to the hotel, I forgot to contact Viator. We did make several calls, texts and Facebook messages to our travel agent advising her of our travel issues and concerns. I had hope she was aware of these issues and would have contacted Viator as well. She did not read our messages until the next day. My 3 star review is because the travel agent was unable to negotiate a settlement for forgiving or reducing the charge for the transfer.
I wont recommend u and i wont use u again
Jerry_S, Sep 2023
Driver was late. The car was small, we had to have 1 of the suitcase on the front seat. The driver didnt have cr3dit cards working to.have us out of the parking lot. I had to pay with my cc to exit. Terrible experience
We lived to tell the tale
Michael_N, Sep 2023
Driver was very angry as our baggage was held up. They kept ringing but I had 90 mins from booking time to make the transfer. I eventually found the driver not dressed as per pick up instructions and not where I was told he would be. Then his driving was nothing short of dangerous and aggressive. We won’t use this service ever again. Terrible start to our trip. Just glad we made it.
Not happy
Terrence_G, Sep 2023
We were delayed in customs for a while and when we were finally out no one was there to meet us. I assumed our driver was gone because of our delay. after 30 minutes of searching I decided to call. That is when I received a call from the office saying that our driver was going to be late. I should have received a call or text LONG before this. Our driver was wonderful and made the rest of the experience great.
Great Service from the Airport
Margaret_F, Sep 2023
The driver was very knowledgeable and shared quite a bit about the City of London. The vehicle was clean and we enjoyed the quick transfer from the airport to our hotel.
No guarantee
Angela_P, Sep 2023
The fact that you cancelled my pick up just hours after taking my payment ( and just hours prior to pick up time) then telling me it would be 3-5 days to get a refund. You should not offer reservation if no one is available.
Driver was almost 40...
Sujoya_P, Sep 2023
Driver was almost 40 minutes late. We had to call - no heads up was given. Extremely overpriced, would’ve been cheaper to get a luxury Uber, faster and we would’ve gotten a nicer car.

The driver was very informative and timely. It was a smooth ride. He spotted us we did not have to look for him. He was friendly and helpful.
Late and unprofessional
sadamsusn, Aug 2023
We were told we had to find our way to the “drop parking” by asking the staff at the airport to show us. After getting our luggage and finding our way to the drop parking, the driver was still 15 minutes late. The driving was jerky and uncomfortable to ride.
Very nice driver!
Eric_P, Aug 2023
The driver was very friendly and nice. She also acted as a tour guide on our trip from the airport to the hotel.
Heathrow pickup
Pam_Y, Aug 2023
Our driver was on time and courteous. Made the arrival at Heathrow stress free and whisked us away to our hotel
Pauline_M, Aug 2023
After our long flight to London, we were so looking forward to meeting our driver so we can check into our hotel rooms and settle in. Unfortunately, that was not the case as our driver was not there when we came out. I found a number in Viator and tried calling the tour operator but was not able to get through. Finally, someone from the company called and told us our driver is running 35 minutes late because of traffic but we ended up waiting over an hour before our driver finally arrived. During this time, I called the company couple times before the driver finally show up. The lady was apologetic for being late and took us to her van (a pretty clean van). In hindsight, we should have just taken a taxi or Uber which would have been cheaper and we won't have to wait over an hour.
Our driver showed up...

Our driver showed up looking like he hadn't showered in a week. His clothes were filthy. He looked like he was falling asleep at the wheel.
Excellent service
