How do you contact Viator?

I am very frustrated at not being able to phone or email Viator despite their website saying you can 'call or email 24/7'. No phone number is listed on the website and any email contact is only through pre determined drop down selections. There is no facility to write...

I also wish to complain formally about Viator cancelling at the last minute a trip I had booked in Istanbul, Since this required advance approval with submission of passport information for security purposes, it was impossible to rebook at short notice. My main reason for going to Istanbul was to visit the old Jewish Synagogues.

So the trip overall was most unsatisfactory. And Viator gave no reason whatsoever about why the trip was cancelled. Only that they had cancelled it- and offered money back.

With earlier notification, there were other companies offering the same tour. I will not book with Viator again.

Viator - Nobody showed up for our trip
The phone on the confirmation Is shuttle central and shuttle central said that they never received the hotel to confirm the transportation. AND when you called Viator they said that you must call the tour operator. AND at the end no one wants to be responsable. Only on 48 horas i Will know a Solution.

Reservation keeps saying that the price changed

My agent went above and beyond to put up with a very upset woman who was at the last leg of trying to get this reservation to go through. He made it happen all done I'm so happy

Waiting for a refund due to covid 19

Viator - Waiting for a refund due to covid 19
Hello, My husband got covid and we try to cancel 24 hrs before the service. At that time it was impossible to contact costumer service. I was hours on hold paying for international phone calls. The tour operator in Athens didnt help. Your answer is unacceptable do to the difficult situation. Waiting for you to reconsider the event. Thanks, Valentina Pereira

Double charge

During booking the small group tour to Salzburg payment didn't go through therefore I used another card, so in credit card statement showing the charge of 705.96 that was an error at the time of booking, apparently Viator rejected the payment, but the charge still is on credit card statement. Viator rep per my request sent an email saying the charge was rejected and further i will contact the card to reimburse the money.

User's recommendation: I highly recommend all customers book their tour through Viator.
