5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

Lovely tour guide with a nice blend of history and shops and food...

1 star rating: I do not recommend this January 2014

We had booked the tour for 4 for my 30th birthday and were really looking forward to it. We show up ahead of time and wait around in the rain outside the museum we'd been instructed to meet at. The guide shows up to tell us that the place they were going to take us is closed for the holidays (you'd think they would know this and plan accordingly ahead of time with their partners). The guide had only been sent to tell us this so they had known before the guide came to meet us. We did not receive an email stating anything, so we wasted our time making sure we were at the meeting spot. The guide tells us to come back several days later. At the second meeting we find out that it turns out our guide is not too familiar with the area and we hardly cover any ground. I specifically booked a walking tour to actually learn about the area we were in. We walk for a little and come to a place for the wine tasting. The whole thing was very disorganized, the place was not ready for us and had to go out to buy cheese for our tasting. Not only were we inconvenienced by having to go to one part of town the first day (missing out on other things we could have been doing on our limited stay) but the tasting itself was just so so, I would say worth maybe 1/4 of what we paid for it. I would not recommend this tour and am a little soured on Viator in general now.
