I have done several Viator tours before and have always been extremely happy with them, unfortunately this tour was not up to scratch. Both towns of Assisi and Orvieto were stunning however it was actually the way the tour was conducted that I was not pleased with.
First of all the tour stated it would be a small mini-bus tour however when we were picked up we were taken to a large coach with over 50 people. Also the average age of the people on this tour was over 60 and many people were quite challenged in their mobility. As a result it took forever for our group to get from A t B becaus eall the people were so super slow. We wer late and overtime at both towns as a result and the tour guide had omit a church at the end of the day as a result. Also the local guide in Assisi mostly spoke Spnaish to the group and her accent was so thick that we couldn't iunderstand her. There were only 4 Spanish speakers on the tour and the rest were English. I in the end shut off my "whisper" because it was no use listening to the tour guide.
Lastly we were told we would be dropped "near" our accommodation, which was going to take over and hour from the schedule end of tour as there were so many people to drop off (22 stops) this was not what we signed up for.
I would check to make sure how people are going on this tour before booking! An be prepared for a older age group of travellers!
Fantastic and friendly wine tour of the Yarra. Bill our host and guide was very welcoming and we met some really nice people on the tour. All three wineries and the lunch at Rochford were brilliant. would recommend anyone who loves wine to go on this tour!
