Viator Private Tour Guides Safety Centre


The safety and security of clients is very important to Viator Private Tour Guides.
Even though all tourist guides registered with Viator Private Tour Guides have declared they have a certification/licence/training, we also wish to be open about potential dangers.

When meeting new people for the first time it is important to take basic safety steps e.g. ensure the meeting place is a public area such as hotel lobby, cafes, train stations etc. Do not disclose your personal accommodation details.
