I was hesitant to buy these tickets after reading other reviews about how it doesn't truly let you "skip the line." I'm happy to report that these tickets DO allow you to skip the line. I pulled up the voucher on my phone and I was able to scan it directly from my phone for entry at the "Ticketed Entry" door. The line to "Purchase Tickets" was nearby and was decently full for a Wednesday morning - we didn't have to stand in that line, yay! The only thing that could've been better is the ability to purchase student tickets. You can do this through the California Academy of Sciences website, but not on Viator.
Amazing experience for kids and adults
A wonderful museum full of interesting exhibits. We spent several hours there and were never bored. We particularly liked the eco dome and the planetarium show and the earthquake experience.
Tried to do two tours in one day, Didn't get to tour the whole tour as the tour ended at 5:00 P.M. Will try to take the tour again
This tour was amazing!
In general it was ok, but... statement skip the line is NOT true. First when we came we stood in line to get in, but they said they cannot let me in because I need print out of tickets. So we had to wait in another line, wait for tickets to be printed and then go again in other line to show those tickets to eventually get in. So i really didn't see any advantage using Viator. And the worse of all employees of academy of sciensces were saying to viator not to tell skip the line but they still do, so it looks like they lie to people just to get more customers
The Academy itself was amazing, so worthwhile and no problems there. It was the Skip the Line component. There was no Skip the Line, I couldn't get my ticket to scan and the entry staff said they hadn't heard of this offer. Had to queue at ticket box same as everyone else. Don't offer what can't be delivered.
