This review is specifically about Viator in general. I booked a reserve now pay later tour and by the time I got charged for it the dates were incorrect. By the time I realized that the dates somehow got messed up the date of the tour had already passes. No services were rendered nor were the "skip-the-line" tickets ever picked up or used. When I called Viator to so what could be done about this mishap I was told nothing can be done about this since the date has already passed but, "I can book another tour for you at full price"... Are you kidding me Viator, you screwed me on my first tour I ever booked with you and you think Im going to spend more of my money with you...
This doesn't even begin to cover all the tricky fine print details that come alone with most of their tours. Things like buying skip-the-line tickets that can only be used on certain days even if booked for multiples days....
Also to add, follow the instructions on the paperwork given to you/printed, the details about where to pick up your tickets for the tours/events is a little confusing and after we picked up our receipts, you have to go to another place to pick up the tickets, before even getting to the location. And make sure your tickets are in the correct currency, I mistakenly somehow got onto Pounds instead of USD and when the charge came through it threw me off.
Bus was fine, no real issues, just a little confusion at first.
, Feb 2020
Once we figured out exactly where we were supposed to go and which bus we were supposed to take, it was fine, but just watch the time. At the end of the day (5-6 I think) the day bus changes and one more bus rotates around all the stops. You can wait a long time for the last bus to come pick you up and then it only brings you back to the remaining stops or to the main home base location.
We were on the buses for over an hour with the same music playing over and over in between info spots. There surely must be something else to be said about Rome that could fill the gaps. What was said appeared very basic and didn't exactly over inform. I thought quite childish really.
Meh, between the real good ones (Berlin and Edinburgh) and the OK ones (Liverpool) the poor ones (Brussels) and the actively hostile ones (New York City, “leave a tip! DeBlasio is ruining the city! Get back in line even if you don’t want your picture taken for $52”) Rome would probably fall into the poor category. From the confusing purchase options on line to being yelled at by the vendor as to where to go to catch the bus, being told by the grumpy ticket lady that I could not go to the Coliseum that day to being left totally on my own at the Vatican, what did I pay an exorbitant amount of money for? Does it get you around? Yeah. Do you see most of the main sites? Yeah. Try the Big Bus instead. Hop on Hop off is like the fat champion not caring if it throws a knockout punch. It already has your money.
