Wonderful experience with a fabulous guide. The "extra" knowledge and bonus VIP tour stops were interesting and engaging. Perfect experience for our friend group and their children (8, 9, and 13). We highly recommend!
The tour guide never showed up! I tried calling them (voicemail), contacting them through Viator's system (no response), and afterwards I tried emailing them asking them why they never came (still no answer). I am very frustrated. I feel like this company is a scam and i have just been ghosted! Do not book this tour. They are unreliable!
