    Scam scam Viator!!! Refund my money
    Julia_M
    , Oct 2021
    The tickets didn’t work!!! The barcodes didn’t work. I couldn’t use the tickets for $378. This website is a scam and I hope other people read this. I bought tickets to Universal studios and the barcodes didn’t work. I went to guest services and they told me to call Viator. Viator representative was so desperate to sell the tickets she wasn’t even trying to go over park details, closing times or if I have any problems with the tickets where to call, absolutely nothing

    This was an excellent day out, only problem for us was when receiving the "tickets" via email, they did not come through with a bar code so we had difficulty at the ticket line, had to go to guest services to sort out prior to gaining entry. Really glad we booked skip the line Express, well worth the extra

    Great day, would highly recommended the Express ticket if you are limited to one day as some of the ques was 240 minutes. Straight on with the Express pass. Very enjoyable day with very little queuing. Food and drink inside is very over priced!!

    express ticket - upgraded to VIP
    simonejohnston
    , Dec 2019
    We arrived at Universal - way too early and was greeted by a rep and we decided to upgrade to the VIP pass. As I had been on a few occasions, I took the deal. My daughter and I really enjoyed the behind the scenes tour. The lunch was amazing, didn't have to wait in any of the lines, straight to the front at all the show.

    Cool afternoon
    stefanvitorino
    , Nov 2019
    We spent a cool afternoon at the Universal Studios. The place is really great and lots of fun. We expected but to see more things like history of it or historical performances. The park has a lot of entertainment, and the express ticket is really worth it, with that we were able to go everywhere without having to wait (without that you would have to wait up to 1 hour)
