    Viator Tours & Activities's review

    Published: 2016-07-29, by .

    Made for tourists, Viator Tours lets you find and book tours and activities

    • Lightweight on the Android
    • Straightforward UI
    • Expensive tours
    • iOS version is heavier
    • Somewhat buggy

    "Find great tours and activities"


    You’ve got two options exactly when and how to use Viator Tours & Activities on your iOS or Android. You can either plan ahead by tapping on “Select Destination,” or you can wait until you reach your destination to have Viator detect what tours and activities are nearby. Once you’ve selected either option, Viator Tours will find activities and tours for you to purchase. You can choose to do a food-walking tour, for example, or a city tour, with the price in U.S. dollars so there’s no confusion. You can also see an overview and a breakdown of important info.


    Viator Tours knows what you need, so there’s no hassle or complicated UI to deal with, letting you find the latest and greatest deals and tours. This app doesn’t weigh all that much on Android.


    When booking a tour, you’ll find this app to be very expensive. The iOS app is much, much heavier than its Android counterpart. While it’s initially easy to use, actually checking out becomes a headache, with the shopping cart always empty when selecting a date.

    Have to login every time app is opened and it will not allow password entry via paste from my password manager. This is much more of a pain than is necessary. Also does not accept any biometric passwords.

    An enabler for scammers. Booked a tour in Marrakech with Viator, nobody showed up. No way of contacting Viator who clearly don't want to know once your money has been taken. Should have researched reviews before using this as there are a lot of other horror stories.
