Four Tickets became three

We booked and paid four tickets to the Forbidden City with Viator online. The confirmation came and everything looked right. When it was time for the visit, we would start by picking up the tickets. Then all of a sudden there were only three??? Viator could not repair this failure by getting the missing ticket #4. We had all been looking forward to this visit but since the whole family could not go together we had to leave. Very disappointed and facing the fact that it is not possible to trust Viatour booking your tickets.

Hello Jan, I'm Niko. very sorry about your situation on that day. This is totally our mistake. only issued 1 adult and 2 children tickets. I have cancelled your booking today, if you want to rebook a new date to visit, please contact me.
