Beware
Oct 2019 • Couples
Pre arrival it took days to get an answer to a simple question - how will we know if trip cancelled due to operator having insufficient bookings? Answer: day of by phone or email. Good luck if don't travel with their method of contact.
The pick up went smoothly however " they had to fill the van" before we could go. Turns out folks from our ship with no reservation joined and paid half of our price. Then the driver - " an expert historian" would drop us near a site give basic hand directions, with no info on the history, and want us all back. If not for Google maps and search important info and sites would not have been seen. For example at one stop the Roman forum was less than .3 miles yet have no clue it was there. Later as we passed the area he noted just that it was a political area on way to colloseum. Driver did not really understand English so had to use Google translate. There was no active narration of the visit. Driver should have known that access to Vatican and Basilica was restricted on Wednesday due to papal events but took us there first when access was mist restricted. Driver implied that all participants had to eat lunch in the same place so tour could continue on time however for each stop we were on our own with responsibility to return at designated time. As a group we did get driver to relinquish the one restaurant idea but he was reluctant. During the tour due to disappointment I wrote to the contact info provided by Cruising Rome only to find they directed you to another vendors website and support. I had multiple contacts with this agency - who were professional - only to find they were not the agency. I immediately sent complaint to Viator with a copy of all correspondence to the first agency. It has been several days and no clear resolution. I did get a response requesting the reasons for a partial refund request to which I resent all the correspondence indicating why and trip not as promised. If this is a sample of the quality Viator! TripAdvisor tours then we will be hesitant to select again.We only booked one of three tours through TripAdvisor and are thankful we used alternative agents.
