Horrible / Will seek full reimbursement
, Mar 2020
They never showed up at our hotel in Rio. The tour was scheduled at 8am and we were in the lobby waiting for them to arrive from 7:30am to 9am... and they never came. I sent text messages to them (via the Viator website) the day before to confirm our location (hotel) in Rio. They never replied or confirmed. I asked the clerk of our hotel to call them, which she did 4 times... the day before the scheduled tour they didn't pick up and on the day of the tour itself the same phone number became out of service. My wife and I plan to seek for full reimbursement. This was the highlight of our trip to Rio. We are extremely disappointed as per what is descrived above.
We were disappointed

The tour guide was good and informative. Lunch was good. Only negative feedback I have is he came very late.
No guide

I actually would give this private tour in Rio de Janeiro no stars as our tour guide did not show up!

The tour provider never showed up. We called, emailed, and texted all support numbers they provided, only to be ignored and have our calls declined and then blocked, leaving us to improvise on our only full day in the city. We can see on WhatsApp that they have read our messages but they still have not responded. I would steer clear of this tour.
Bait & Switch

This is not a private tour as promised. Only 1 tour guide showed up for all 3 suppose to be a separate private tour. One group was supposed to be in German, Korean and a Chinese language tour. Of the 3 groups, this tour company even used a regular taxi. I don’t recommend this tour.
A day in Rio.

We were two couples booked a private tour. Because no minibus available we had 2 cars, 2 drivers and a guide. All 3 very friendly and helpful. Guide Edi spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. Got to Christ the Redeemer before the crowds, then great lunch in typical local restaurant followed by other stops finishing off with cable car up Sugarloaf. Maybe not the cheapest tour but for us a great day out and worth every penny as all tickets and lunch included. You probably will only be here once so treat yourself.
Outstanding tour

We saw the "must see" sites but also spent some time driving down narrow streets looking at architecture and the street scene. Absolutely fascinating! Lunch was in a cafe off the tourist routes and used almost exclusively by locals. Food was good and the experience was really great. I highly recommend this tour.

Servizio inesistente

Avevo concordato con Viator un tour privato a Buenos Aires con guida in Italiano. All'appuntamento non si è presentato nessuno. Abbiamo tentato di contattare telafonicamente l'operatore ma senza risposta. Dopo un'ora abbiamo dovuto noleggiare un taxi. L'esperienza è stata disastrosa con problemi di lingua e la difficoltà di trovare qualcuno che potesse aiutarci. Viator ha provveduto a rimborsare quanto versato ma, pur sollecitato, non ha fornito alcuna spiegazione. Avremmo potuto chiedere i danni ma abbiamo preferito rimuovere l'accaduto.
