    Terrible Experience with Viator
    nidhi_s, Aug 2023
    No coordination and representation by Viator on the experience day. Called them couple of times after waiting and post arrival time to no use. Later they shared the bus & river ticket codes and we had to search things on our own. They informed about cancellation of Eiffel Tower visit post asking them on how and what we do on the experience day. We could not do the Eiffel tower due to this behaviour of Viator and one of the purposes of this Paris visit spoiled for the family. I would like Viator to compensate me for all the trouble and spoiling the experience.

    Not good
    Richard_T, Aug 2023
    The meeting spot was vague and once we connected with one of the big bus contacts they told us we did not have the correct ticket (which was sent to us by Viator). We could not get on the Eiffel 2nd floor tour ( which we paid for) reluctantly they gave us hip on hop off bus pass and Seine River cruise. Not a good experience. Someone at Viator didn’t do their homework

    Avoid this Shane tours vendor
    Larry_E, Jun 2023
    Shane Tours in Paris provided the Worse coordination ever. On-line ticket not accepted by Big bus vendor. No pass available at the Eiffel Tower due to “technical difficulties.” Customer service comes from “broken English “ Indian operators that are difficult to understand.

    Les événements en valent la peine mais trouvez un autre voyagiste...
    Gilles_B, Sep 2023
    Tous des choses à voir! Mais ne faites pas affaire avec Shane tour... service médiocre, une chance que la dame à Paris chez Big bus tour était là ....elle m'a littéralement sortie du trouble. Mais comme le voyagiste a mal fait son travail, j'ai dû me taper la tour Effel à pied vu que j'étais en retard sur mon horaire ( 9:30 am) pour l'élévateur... et pourtant j'ai payé le gros prix pour ça ...elle a tout réglé...même la croisière sur la scène C'est donc à elle que je dois ma belle journée en fin de compte.. .

    Keine Weiterempfehlung!!!
    Anastasia_M, Jun 2023
    Schon beim Ankommen an einer BigBus Station am Eiffelturm wurde uns gesagt, dass wir Tickets mit QR-Codes für die Busfahrt brauchen. Diese wurden uns erst nach telefonischer Nachfrage bei Viator per WhatsApp verspätet geschickt. Dank eines BigBus Mitarbeiters durften wir in den Bus einsteigen und die Tickets später einscannen lassen. So ging der Stress weiter, wir konnten die Busfahrt kaum genießen, da auch die Seine-Fahrt-Tickets und die Eiffelturm-Tickets fehlten. Die Seine-Fahrt-Tickets wurden uns im Laufe von 2 Stunden geschickt. Doch mussten wir trotzdem erfragen, an welcher Anlegestelle es los ging. Die Tour auf den Eiffelturm wurde im Laufe des Vormittags, zuerst angeblich wegen technischer Probleme auf der Internetseite und dann wegen Überbuchung komplett storniert. Ich habe eine Teilrückerstattung angefordert. Ich empfehle Viator keinesfalls weiter.
