What people are saying about St. Mark's Campanile

Bus came on time with a good humored tour guide. On the way to Venice, the history of the city was extensively reported. Furthermore, everything that was additionally bookable was explained. Really no pressure. Food that belonged to this offer was delicious and plentiful, there were even drinks such as water and wine, as well as dessert. It's worth booking. Arrived in Venice, as promised, we took a big boat to St. Mark's Square. The return journey was like the outward journey with a break for the toilet.

Worth it if you have more time in Venice. Both islands are beautiful, especially Burano. The glassblowing demonstration was pretty cool, the guide was knowledgeable, and the price is fair.

Awesome short trip to a wonderful city. Worth a longer trip to see all the beautiful ancient sights. Definitely book a lagoon tour!
