What people are saying about Venice

The tour is a must-do. The guide is very knowledgeable and the motor boat was great. There were only 4 of us plus a couple so e tu of space to enjoy the trip comfortably. You get to see all the best Venice sights from a privileged viewpoint. The kids and myself loved it. Unforgettable!

We did three tours during our stay and liked this one the best. Our guide gave us a full run down of the history of Venice and detailed explanations for the dedication to the Holocaust, Plaques, origin of terms... it was excellent and emotional for us.

Great value boat trip to some beautiful islands around Venice. The only thing that marred it was people returning late at the last stop which meant we had to walk fast to he able to catch our onward ferry. Would highly recommend the trip.

The driver was very prompt, friendly, and extremely helpful! He communicated clearly with us about the meeting point and pickup time!

Such a great walking tour- our guide was lovely and full of knowledge. Couldn't recommend it more!
