Welcome to Viator!
We help users to research and book travel experiences, post opinions of those experiences, and engage in interactive travel forums. However, we are not a travel or tour agency, and we do not provide such experiences ourselves. When you make a booking, you will be purchasing a tour, ticket or other service directly from the third-party supplier.

Products and Booking Reservations
10.3 Viator is not a travel agency and does not provide or own any Experiences. Although Viator provides the Website with information about Products and facilitates Bookings, such actions do not in any way constitute Viator's sponsorship or approval of such Suppliers, or any affiliation between Viator and any Supplier. Although Viator Members may rate and review particular Products based on their own experiences, Viator does not endorse or recommend any Products. You agree that Viator is not responsible for the accuracy or completeness of information it obtains from Suppliers and/or that is displayed on the Website.
10.4 By making a Booking, you warrant that you are at least 18 years of age, that you possess the legal authority to enter into both this binding agreement and a binding agreement with the Supplier, to use the Services, to purchase the Product, and that all information you supply is true and accurate. You further agree that you will use the Platform to make only legitimate Bookings for you and/or others for whom you are legally authorized to act.
11.1 The price of each Product will be quoted on a per-person basis, unless otherwise specified.
11.2 Prices are based on the local tariff at the time of quoting, converted at the prevailing foreign-exchange rate as determined by Viator. See Section 12 for more information about currency conversions.
11.3 Price quotations are subject to change without notice, until a Booking has been made.
11.4 Unless the Supplier has otherwise specified, prices do not include any local taxes or use-fees, including foreign departure, security, port charges, park fees, customs, immigration, agricultural, passenger-facility charges or international transportation tax.
11.5 Inclusions are determined by the Supplier. Prices do not include tips/gratuities; passport and visa fees; baggage and personal insurance; any items of a personal nature; taxes or duties; and any beverages or food that the Supplier has not specifically stated are included.
12.1 If Viator provides a currency converter, currency rates are based on various publicly available sources and should be used as guidelines only. Rates are not verified, and actual rates may vary. Currency quotes may not be updated on a daily basis, and Viator and its affiliates do not warrant or guarantee accuracy. Viator shall not be liable to you if prices change due to currency fluctuations.
13.1 When you make a Booking, Viator collects your payment information and processes your payment as described in Section 14. In doing so, Viator acts as the limited payment collection agent of the Supplier, collecting your payment for the applicable Product(s) on behalf of such Supplier. Full payment by credit or debit card is required to make a Booking, unless otherwise specified. The payee will be listed as Viator/Tripadvisor on your statement.
13.2 The value of your Booking may be subject to taxes, duties, foreign transaction, currency exchange or other fees. Your bank or payment card company may convert the payment into the local currency and may charge fees, resulting in differences between the amount displayed through the Platform, and the final amount charged to you. Viator recommends that you contact your bank or card company if you have any questions concerning any applicable currency conversion or fees.
Modifications or Cancellations by You
15.1 Once a Product has been purchased, your Booking cannot be changed by you or cancelled with a refund, unless otherwise stated in the terms and conditions applicable to such Product.
15.2 The standard cancellation policy allows you to request a change to and/or cancel a Booking up until 24 hours before the start time of the Booking; or if the Experience does not have an explicit start time, the deadline to request a change or to cancel will generally be 11:59pm, two days before the start date. Timings are calculated in accordance with the time zone of the Experience.
15.3 If any Product is designated as 'All Sales Final' or with materially similar messaging (which includes but is not limited to all group bookings booked through our Group Bookings Department), it is non-refundable, and it will not be possible to change or cancel it after making a Booking. A minority of Products have other, different cancellation policies. In all circumstances, you must check the cancellation policy contained in the applicable Product listing at the time of your Booking, which is the policy that will apply to and govern the terms of your cancellation and any refunds.
15.4 Notwithstanding Sections 15.2 and 15.3, (a) requests for modifications and amendments to a Booking, including date change requests (collectively, a "Change Request") should be made online through the 'Manage My Booking' section of the Website; and (b) if it is possible to implement a Change Request, Viator shall not charge a fee for doing so, as long as the Change Request is received by us by the deadline specified in the Product listing. Please note that a Supplier may charge a fee to accommodate a Change Request; in such circumstances, you will be required to pay such fee in order that Viator may successfully process your Change Request.
15.5 All Change Requests shall be processed by Viator subject to the availability and agreement of the applicable Supplier. Viator does not guarantee the success of any Change Request. To the extent the Supplier is unwilling or unable to accept such Change Request, then your right to a refund (if any) shall be governed by the cancellation terms of your Booking.
15.6 If you make a Booking using a promotion code, or if you accept a discount or special-offer price during the check-out process, you may invalidate your discount or special-offer price by making a Change Request after Booking.
15.7 No refunds are available once an Experience has commenced, or in respect of any Product's package, accommodation, meals or any other services that have started to be utilized.
Other Modifications and Cancellations
16.1 Occasionally a Supplier may make a change to a Product after your purchase, including but not limited to the date, price, inclusions, coverage, age requirements, and/or any other Product features and/or requirements. As a result, Viator (acting on the Supplier’s behalf), reserves the right to cancel, change or substitute any Product that you have purchased, at any time, for any reason. If the change proposed by the Supplier is material (for example, a change in dates and/or a significant change to the itinerary), and you are dissatisfied with the alternative that is offered, you will be entitled to a full refund of the original purchase price.
16.2 We may decide, in our sole discretion, that it is necessary or desirable for the protection of our interests, the Supplier's interests and/or your interests, to withdraw our Services resulting in an override of the Product's cancellation policy and the effective cancellation of a Booking. We may also determine, in our sole discretion, to arrange refund to you part or all of the amounts charged to you. You agree that we and the applicable Supplier shall have no liability for such cancellations or refunds.
Passports, Visas & Insurance
17.1 When you make a Booking, you are responsible for ensuring that you meet all foreign entry requirements and that your travel documents, including passports and visas, are in order.
17.2 For applicable passport and visa requirements, you should consult the relevant embassy or consulate for information. Such requirements may change at any time, and it is your responsibility to check for up-to-date information before making a Booking and before your departure. Viator accepts no liability in connection with any person who is refused entry onto a flight or into any country, including countries such person may just be passing through en route to their destination.
17.3 As visa and health requirements are subject to change without notice, Viator recommends that you verify health and visa requirements with the appropriate consulate prior to departure. It is also your responsibility to consult your physician for current recommendations on inoculations before you travel internationally, and to ensure that you meet all health entry requirements and follow all medical guidance related to your trip.
17.4 Viator strongly recommends that you purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy prior to departure to protect your Product purchase. If you cancel your trip or significantly alter travel dates, your travel insurance policy may reimburse the cost of cancellation fees and related expenses. Please review your travel insurance policy carefully for related terms and conditions.
17.5 Although most travel, including travel to international destinations, is completed without incident, travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Viator urges customers to investigate and review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government and destination country governments prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at www.state.gov, www.tsa.gov, www.dot.gov, www.faa.gov, www.cdc.gov, www.treas.gov/ofac and www.customs.gov.
17.6 VIATOR DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT TRAVEL TO ANY DESTINATION IS ADVISABLE OR WITHOUT RISK, AND VIATOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OR LOSSES THAT MAY RESULT FROM TRAVEL TO SUCH DESTINATIONS.
18.2 THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, SOFTWARE, PLATFORM, AND SERVICES PROVIDED BY VIATOR MAY INCLUDE INACCURACIES OR ERRORS, INCLUDING IN RELATION TO RESERVATION AVAILABILITY AND PRICING ERRORS. VIATOR, ITS PARENT, SUBSIDIARIES AND CORPORATE AFFILIATES (COLLECTIVELY, THE "VIATOR GROUP COMPANIES") DO NOT GUARANTEE THE ACCURACY OF, AND DISCLAIM ALL LIABILITY FOR, ANY ERRORS OR OTHER INACCURACIES RELATING TO THE INFORMATION AND DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCTS AND OTHER SERVICES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE PRICING, AVAILABILITY, PHOTOGRAPHS, FEATURES, INCLUSIONS AND EXCLUSIONS, GENERAL PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS, REVIEWS AND RATINGS, ETC.). IN ADDITION, VIATOR EXPRESSLY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CORRECT ANY AVAILABILITY AND PRICING ERRORS AND/OR ON BOOKINGS MADE UNDER AN INCORRECT PRICE.
18.3 THE VIATOR GROUP COMPANIES MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE SUITABILITY OF THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, SOFTWARE, PLATFORM, PRODUCTS, AND OTHER SERVICES FOR ANY PURPOSE, AND THE INCLUSION OR OFFERING OF ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES DOES NOT CONSTITUTE ANY ENDORSEMENT OR RECOMMENDATION OF SUCH PRODUCTS OR SERVICES BY THE VIATOR GROUP COMPANIES. ALL SUCH INFORMATION, CONTENT, SOFTWARE, PLATFORM, PRODUCTS, AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. THE VIATOR GROUP COMPANIES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS THAT THE PLATFORM IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. VIATOR HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH REGARD TO THIS INFORMATION, CONTENT, SOFTWARE, PLATFORM, PRODUCTS, AND SERVICES, INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
18.4 THE SUPPLIERS ARE INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS AND NOT AGENTS OR EMPLOYEES OF ANY OF THE VIATOR GROUP COMPANIES. THE VIATOR GROUP COMPANIES ARE NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTS, ERRORS, OMISSIONS, REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, BREACHES, NEGLIGENCE OR MISCONDUCT OF ANY SUCH SUPPLIERS OR FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR OTHER DAMAGES OR EXPENSES RESULTING THEREFROM OR OTHERWISE ARISING FROM ANY BOOKING OR USE OF A PRODUCT. THE VIATOR GROUP COMPANIES HAVE NO LIABILITY AND WILL MAKE NO REFUND IN THE EVENT OF ANY DELAY, CANCELLATION, OVERBOOKING, STRIKE, FORCE MAJEURE OR OTHER CAUSES BEYOND THEIR DIRECT CONTROL, AND THEY HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY ADDITIONAL EXPENSE, OMISSIONS, DELAYS, RE-ROUTING OR ACTS OF ANY GOVERNMENT OR AUTHORITY.
18.5 IN NO EVENT SHALL THE VIATOR GROUP COMPANIES (OR ANY OF THEIR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS AND AFFILIATES) BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOSS OF DATA OR INFORMATION OR COSTS TO PROCURE SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES) ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH, A PRODUCT OR A BOOKING, OR YOUR ACCESS TO, DISPLAY OF OR USE OF THE SERVICES WHETHER BASED ON A THEORY OF NEGLIGENCE, CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, AND EVEN IF VIATOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
18.6 If any Viator Group Company is found liable for any loss or damage that arises out of or is in any way connected with your use of the Services or with a Booking or use of a Product, then the Viator Group Companies' liabilities will in no event exceed, in the aggregate, the greater of (a) the sum paid to Viator in respect of the Booking giving rise to the claim, or (b) one hundred dollars (US $100.00).
Worry-free Shore Excursions
20.1 For Products noted as a "Worry-free Shore Excursion", if you (a) purchase such a Product for redemption while in a particular port-of-call, and (b) are not returned by the applicable Supplier to the ship in time to board, Viator will (subject to Sections 20.2 and 20.3) arrange the necessary transport to the next port-of-call.
20.2 The policy set forth in this Section 20.1 - 20.4 applies only when, through no fault or action of your own, you are not returned to the ship in time to board. The policy is void in instances where delay is caused by your own actions and/or you have deviated from the Experience that you Booked.
20.3 In order to benefit from this policy, you must supply Viator with correct arrival and departure ship information and ensure there is enough time (minimum 2 hours) between the Experience end time and the ship departure time. You must contact Viator directly and as soon as possible to request next port-of-call transportation arrangements as you cannot book your own travel without voiding this policy.
20.4 Subject to your eligibility, Viator will facilitate the booking of travel for you to the next port of call (not to exceed US$1,000 per person).
20.5 In addition to the protection offered pursuant to Section 20.1 - 20.4, if your ship misses a port-of-call or is delayed beyond the commencement time of your Worry-free Shore Excursion, simply contact Viator within 14 days. Pending verification of the ship's actual itinerary, we will issue you a refund.
21.1 You will receive a Viator-branded ticket (or, alternatively a voucher from the Supplier) (in each case, a "Ticket") for each Product you you Book, with such Ticket being issued on behalf of the applicable Supplier. In order to access and print your Ticket, you will be directed to a secure webpage hosted by Viator that contains a link to your Ticket. Certain Bookings will result in your being provided with an electronic Ticket as well as or instead of a paper Ticket.
21.2 You must provide the original, authentic Ticket to the applicable Supplier in order to redeem your Product. Your Booking cannot be honored or redeemed without presenting a valid Ticket. Ensure you read the terms and conditions relating to your Booking in order to understand what will be required by the Supplier by way of Ticket presentation.
21.3 For security purposes, when redeeming your Ticket you must present a valid photo ID and sign the Ticket.
21.4 In some cases, a Supplier may also require that you present the payment card used to purchase your Product at the time of redemption. This typically applies to attraction and show tickets. You should be advised at check-out whether or not this will be required. If you have questions about such a requirement, contact Viator's Customer Care team.
22.5 Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
Jurisdiction and Governing Law
23.2 Use of the Services is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these terms and conditions, including, without limitation, this paragraph.
