The driver was outstanding and very patient with two families (6 children total). He was very flexible and even returned one of the parents and a child to the lodging. One of the children got sick and the driver was very helpful in all respects. He brought the rest of the visitors to a wonderful location for lunch and had no issues with our slow pace throughout the day. ISSUE: When speaking with the Viator Representative upon booking the "tour", I was assured repeatedly that we would receive a "Child Friendly" tour of Athens with a driver and tour guide. We were only provided a driver and no tour guide. We paid a tremendous amount of money for an expensive private driver around Athens ... and never received the actual tour that we were lead to believe we had booked!
The particular tour is offered without a tourist guide and the was no such requirement for a professional guide, which rises the cost of the tour. The descriptions of tour in the Viator platform, are clear enough and in some cases the clients require a tourist guide after the booking. In this case we had no requirement neither from Viator team nor from the client. We are wondering why the client did not ask for it during the tour.
