Not Worth the Price

Worst tour I have ever taken with Viator. They have since indicated that the tour is a “private tour”, however, it’s actually just a driver taking you to two wineries and a bite to eat. Cancel if it’s raining and buy a couple of bottles of wine on your own. For the cost of the tour you could fly around Europe, or book a cruise on your own. Absolutely not worth half the cost in my opinion.

We are sad about this review, because this is one of our best reviewed tours. The clients got a tour on their own instead of a small group one because we only had 2 booked, nothing was skipped (cheese shop, two wineries with guided visit and tastings and full lunch). Maybe the client wrote the review because after enjoying the whole tour they asked for a 50% refund and we rejected as there was no basis for one. Everything was supplied as described and, again, this is really an amazing tour for which we get super reviews and clients from the best 5 stars hotels of Lake Como.
