Driver late , I had to call my office 3 times to find him. Shabby car - shabby dress. All drivers came out properly to pick up their customers. I will not use your transfer services for my clients. I am a Virtuoso agency owner in Canada. Tour was excellent in the afternoon young guy. Nimet

The trip was well planned and covered many sights. Our tour guide Bob was exceptional and made the day go very smoothly. This was a great tour
Our car was waiting!
Dwight_E, Feb 2020
Driver stayed in touch with us when our departure from the ship was delayed. He was waiting to help with luggage and we were taken to our hotel ass quickly as the traffic would allow. He commented on the points we passed on the way. We’ll use viator cars and shuttles from now on. Tomorrow on to SYD and home to Texas!
Sold as private, but received shared
Edward_S, Jan 2020
Paid for private transfer, but in fact it turned out to be a dented vs with a driver who either spoke no English or was just deaf. In fact, Viator should immediately refund part of the fee, as this was not a private arrangement. It was a shared transfer!
Response from Host, Jan 2020
Dear Customer, First and foremost, we appreciate the time you have taken off of your holidays and/or busy schedule to provide us with your feedback. Since you have disembarked earlier than scheduled from the cruise ship, you have asked us if you could use our 09:00 am shuttle service to your hotel rather than waiting for your pre-booked private sedan at 09:30 am. We have accommodated your request.
Sydney port transport
CarolA_S, Dec 2019
Transportation and driver were excellent once we connected. I had attempted to arrange a time earlier than was designated for us but was unable to accomplish this and was told to see a repr at port terminal. Finally the repr gave us the ride as we didn't want to wait so long after disembarking off ship. Majority of people had already left port terminal.

Cym, Nov 2017
my driver was sent to the Drop off port to bring me to the pick up port. I found him and the transfer went well. I font blame it on the driver. It wasn't his fault it was the dispatcher's I was transferred from the Noordam to the Solstice

patapickering, Mar 2016
Ended up getting off the ship one hour early so we anticipated a delay in getting picked up. Called the company but did not get an answer but fortunately we were able to locate a driver with the company who eagerly took us to our hotel so we old not have to wait.
