    Wir haben im Vorfeld online gebucht und d bezahlt. Wir waren 20min vor der Zeit bereits am Treffpunkt und haben bis 20 mon nach gebuchten Beginn niemanden gesehen,der die Führung durchgeführt hat. Telefonisch war niemand erreichbar auch nach min.9Versuchdn. Das ganze ist ein absoluter Fake und man kann nur UNBEDINGT JEDEM ABRATEN.

    Lo mejor fue comprar las entradas a los lugares específicos por Internet. Antes de viajar y contratar un guía turístico... excelente guía Dan Harris. Habla varios idiomas...

    The tourguide dident show up Dident reach the company no refund of 45 euro Dont book the tour is a fraud Repeat dont book the tour is a fraud I stayed there from 9.30 till 11.00

    There was no guide at the meeting point, even though we were at the meeting point 40 minutes earlier. Up to 30 minutes after the agreed time at the meeting point, nobody from the agency could be reached by phone either. Also, no one contacted us. My Italian hotelowner was able to speak to Mea-Tours in Italian the next day. The agency told the untruth, he would have been there. Unfortunately, that cannot be the case, the meeting point cannot be confused, we were more than on time, nobody contacted us! We got the offer to participate again the next day. Also the next day nobody was at the meeting point again, you couldn't reach anyone by phone, we were never contacted, no one ever tried to speak to us, not until today, not even by email! Silence, no reaction! wants us to clarify this with the local operator MEA ourselves, but we have booked at Viator, very poor service. Money is gone, no reaction from anybody. Never again Viator.

    Waited 30 mins at the meeting point and nobody showed up, tried calling Mea tours phone number and isn’t a legit number. DO NOT BOOK MEA

    Waited for 30 minutes and no one showed. No one responded to my message about it. Apparently the underground was booked for a private event and it was closed all day. Asked a local tour guide company and they said this happens all the time with Mea Tours. Have to request a fraud charge through my bank. Save time and money and book elsewhere!

    We knew there was a risk based on the past reviews, and unfortunately, the same happened to us. We booked a tour, showed up 15 minutes early to the listed meeting site... and the tour guide never showed up. We waited for awhile after our listing, but no luck. I sent several messages and tried to call, but never heard anything back from them. It was quite frustrating. Later, we popped into a nearby tour shop to see if there were any tours from other companies we could book that day, only to learn that the first underground area our original tour was suposed to take us to wasn't even open that day. So not only did our tour guide never show up, but the company was taking bookings for a tour they wouldn't have been able to deliver on. From talking to others, we've heard that this is normal for this group. It sounds like when they do show up the tour is great, but it's a gamble if they will show up at all. So be wary if you book this tour.

    Tour guide didn’t show. Spent 1 hr waiting in the mid day sun with the rest of the group. Spent 20$ on a taxi to departure location. MEA tours is a scam.

    Ancora una volta pessima esperienza. La visita era programmata per il 14 agosto alle 11, ed alle 6:05 del mattino hanno inviato un'email per annullare. Inutile dire che nessuno ha risposto al telefono sui vari numeri indicati.
