What people are saying about Venice

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!

Worthwhile visit to the Venetian islands: Murano, Burano and Torcello!

We had a great time visiting the little islands of Burano, Murano and Torcello. The boat was comfortable and the guide gave some information during the ride. Interesting visit to Murano glassmaking factory but the highlight of the tour is the beautiful island of Burano with the colourful fisherman houses. In Torcello not much to see but not bad to get a break and enjoy a coffee before you head back to Venice. Half day duration is just perfect.

3 island tour of the islands of the Lagoon

This tour gives you enough time to see all 3 islands. The guide does try and explain all the landmarks, whilst on the boat, but she can hardly be heard. Would it be possible to give out something written as well ? She did make it clear what time to be back at the boat. The guide does not accompany you on the island. You would not expect this ,with the cost of the trip. All told I would recommend this tour

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.

Best Guide ever! Oile was awesome! Very Knowledgable and attentive

We are so glad we go a Guide for the Basilica. Olie was fantastic. we learnt so much and our kids aged 10 and 14 were inthralled. She really catered to them well. it was a small group, 8 of us in total which was really wonderful. I would highly recommend this tour.
