The tour leader was very knowledgeable and he got us to the sites at the most opportune time. Please note that the 12 attractions include some pass by's that you will probably miss if you blink. There was some confusion as we paid the same as the others on the tour but were told we could not complete the tour with the them?? This put somewhat of a damper on the tour along with a long hike back to our hotel. I am not sure if we will book with Viator again due to confusion in the back office.
This was our worst sight seeing experience ever! The tour was a complete mess, 80 of the time we spent waiting... after Corcovado the guide aborted the tour. We will never ever use Viator again, especially since they didn't take responsibility and compensate us. Shame on you!
Thank you for your feedback, we have heard from the tour operator concerning this reservation, please see their text below:
On June 13 we did this tour with 12 people. The tour started with the Corcovado visit and once the guide arrived there the bus driver decided to go on a strike because of salary which was unfortunate and at 1:30 in the afternoon it was impossible to reach the top of the mountain. As the tour was on the afternoon once they finished the visit it was dark and the whole group together decided not to visit the Sugar loaf mountain next day.
Next day in the morning I contacted the clients to propose they to finish the tour that day. The only one that didn't accepted was Mr and Mrs Ahlberg.
I asked them if I could do another service for them to replace this part of the tour and they accepted a transfer to the airport, next day. I, personally, took them to the airport.
During the transfer I told them that in 10 years I work with tourism we never had a strike at Corcovado.
They did half of the tour and they didn't want to complete it the next day. They got a free transfer to the airport to replace the part of the tour they couldn't do.
