I have taken many tours with Viator and this was by far not the best. There was confusion on where to meet the guide, who was late. It was a really big group with a large number of Spanish speaking participants. The guide was constantly trying to coral everyone and wasted a lot of time doing so. Amazing museum but disappointing tour.
This tour was just not what we were expecting. We did expect a group, but it turned out that the group was 40! people - by far the largest tour group we saw there other than groups of school kids. Also, the tickets said the tour started at 11:45, so we dutifully turned up at 11:40, only to find out when the guide showed up at 11:50 that the tour is really at 12:00 she's not sure why they keep listing it as 11:45... but today we're going to be a few extra minutes late because we were waiting for a busload of people to join us. So much for saving time by skipping the lines. If you're comfortable going around a museum in a very large group then this could possibly be a fine tour for you. We're not, and split off from the group after a few minutes, so for us it was a complete waste of money.
This was the most disappointing of 8 separate bookings in 4 different countries I have experienced with Viator. I was disappointed for multiple reasons. First, the tour guide was late arriving. When the guide arrived, we learned that our group of four an 11:45 was being added to a group of 16 that had been touring together since 8:00 am. The tour guide, Anastasia, seemed rushed and flustered. Our first stop in the Acropolis Museum was a LEGO model of the Acropolis. LEGO's? Really? We spent 10 minutes of the hour and 15 minute tour in front of LEGO's while she quizzed the group about the Acropolis. The two earnest 15 year olds in my group were angry that they couldn't answer the questions because they had not been on the earlier part of the tour and were made to feel uninformed. Another problem was the size of the group. The accoustics in the Acropolis Museum were not amenable to a group so large. Guided tours there should definitely have 10 or fewer participants. Ultimately, we chose to leave the tour, read the sinage carefully and learn for ourselves. In four years of using Viator, this was the worst experience I have endured. Also-there is noline to skip in Athens at the end of April. Useless, uneconomical and annoying.
This tour was a disappointment. After waiting for our guide 20 min. we rang the local company in Athens and they told us rather shortly that our guide would arrive soon. When the guide arrived we had to approach her to ask if she was our guide and then was told that we did not have any 'walkie talkie' devices so we would need to stay close. We tried this but eventually gave us and could not hear the guide at all. Viator responded immediately when we informed them of our problems which was great. I would use Viator again because they are responsive to the client's advice if the local company does not come up to scratch
This was a wonderful site to see. The tour guide shared much information and I like seeing a museum this way. I'm really in to Greece history. It was nice not to stand in line for a ticket also. :- I would definitely recommend this to everyone! Rick
Tour itself was great, but local operators canceled, rescheduled, and didn't give the best information on exactly where and when to meet. Just a little unnecessary stress after the long flights from Chicago.
