The trip we booked with Viator was good from the perspective of the local organisation team. However I was not happy with the service provided by Viator. I emailed a long time before the tour to update our hotel location and was informed by a Viator staff member that the local organiation team had been informed, they had not. I had to call them as 2 per min as I was in India to ensure we were picked up at the correct place. Also, there was no guide at all....paying so much money, a guide should be included. Essentially we paid for a car and driver which, given that cars and drivers in India are not expensive, I feel we were significantly over-charged by Viator.
