Driver Patricio was very pleasant...
steven f
, Jan 2018
Driver Patricio was very pleasant and knowledgeable. His English was fair. However, this is the second time and we have only booked 2 of these where we have booked a pickup and transfer thru viator, first was Rome , where the driver didn't appear until we called, both of these transfers had us waiting at over an hour. This is not acceptable. We will not use Viator again for transfers.
