What people are saying about Veneto

Both sites are absolutely incredible! Basilica is a must see

My sister and I were expecting good things from this tour, but it was far far better than that! We easily found the meeting place. Everyone gets a headphone set so you can always hear your guide, and ours was called Rosanna. She was so lovely, upbeat, friendly, and funny. We did the Basilica first and we were lucky to be in there when it was illuminated and it was absolutely beautiful (it is usually only illuminated for mass and other than that for one hour a day). The Basilica also hosts an amazing artwork entirely made of gold and just under 2,000 jewels. This was information provided by Rosanna, and a lot of what made this tour good was all the facts she told us. It would not have been half as amazing without context. Then we did the Doges Palace where, as part of this tour, you actually walk inside and along the Bridge of Sighs, which we weren't expecting! Also the Doges Palace has the largest canvas artwork in the world, which was astounding to see. Two very happy customers!

Exceptional and memorable tour of Venice

My family thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Stephano. Before we even set off on the tour, we were contacted by a lovely professional lady and owner of the company, regretfully can’t recall her name. Thank you for all your kind support in arranging the tour with Stephano. As a local Venetian, professional photographer and warm and kind soul, we really enjoyed seeing Venice at first light and uncovering all the hidden gems, canals, history, etc. he even bought my family coffee and pastries and took the time to teach us techniques on how to use both camera and iPhone cameras. When mosquitoes were bothering my daughter, he took us to a supermarket to purchase mosquito repellent. Showed us places to visit and restaurants to eat in. We have photos and memories that will last a lifetime and many more. Thank you Stephano for your expert guidance, your professionalism and warm and kind spirit!!! Hope to stay in touch.

Great way to see the islands around Venice

I really enjoyed the tour. I had just enough time at each island (about 1 hour) to shop, take pictures and enjoy the atmosphere. I especially liked the glass blowing demonstration. The only negative was that the tour guide on the boat was hard to hear and I didnt know that I had to go the the ticket booth to get my boat ticket.

This was a very affordable way for a family to take a gondola ride.

The tour was described well. The meeting spot was easy to find. The cost was affordable for a family to take a gondola ride. Expect to get a ride and not a description of where you are or what you are seeing. The gondolier did not speak to us at all but overall this was a fun experience.
