Good thing that you can no longer see the price on the voucher in your cell phone, then the whole thing doesn't annoy you so much. 249 € for 2 hours after an older, very nice, lady through Venice - not worth it. We had a private tour in Paris with priority entry to the Louvre - it was worth the money. The tour in Venice did not include anything, just strolling through the streets and here and there a few tips. Basically nice, but not worth the money.
