The organization of the tour was perfect. Our tour guide Francesco entertained us very well during the trip to Venice with lots of jokes and interesting facts about Venice and its region. We also received a lot of helpful information on how best to spend a nice day in Venice. Arriving in Venice, you had the opportunity to accompany Francesco on his tour. All in all, Francesco and his colleagues made it an uncomplicated, beautiful day in a very lively city. We would like to thank Francesco and his colleague for a nice, well-organized day!

Really enjoyed our trip to Venice. We travelled from Malcesine on lake garda so it was an Early start but worth it to see the sights. Tour guide was excellent and very clear with instructions on meeting places & times. They have to be strict as the boats & buses have timetables to stick to so can’t wait about for dilly dalliers lol. Food included was ok but nothing special. All in all a great way to see the sights of Venice if you’re restricted on time in Italy.

Very great ambience right in the vineyards. I did the tour with 3 other friends. At the beginning there was a small guided tour through the vineyards directly behind the house. After that, the teasing began. An oil, a total of 4 wines and a grappa to finish were served in advance. In addition, you received appetizers to accompany the wine. I personally liked it very much.

It was an eventful day. During the bus ride there was interesting and entertaining information about Venice, just like during the city tour. There was still the option of a relatively inexpensive lunch and a gondola ride, but we preferred to explore the alleys and canals on our own. The booked boat trip through the lagoon was also very interesting.

fantastic fun trip, fast speed boats and wine tasting good
