There and back are easy. We only partially share the butter ride charm described in other reviews. The offers are certainly interesting and helpful for people who don't want to rush through Venice on their own. You only have a 5 1/2 hour stay if you add passport control and wait until departure. From 11:30 you can move around freely and by 16:00 at the latest you should be back at the harbor. You only have 4 1/2 times. if you want to move with the water bus, there is a stop right at the harbor. There, however, you can neither buy tickets nor pick up tickets bought online, which is 5 minutes away at the next stop. from there you can be at St. Mark's Square in 10 minutes. overall we were very satisfied otherwise. you can of course only get a rough impression of this overcrowded city. we like to come back for a long weekend

Fantastic trip to Venice, very well put together and organised. The guides were amazing, knew their stuff. Lunch was excellent, just the right portions. I found doing Venice this way without any hassle of having to find anywhere to eat etc better than having to organise it myself. Also the gondola ride was amazing, I can tick that box. Once again the staff were amazing

Improvements can be made

Translating everything in 4 languages instead of just English is nonsense and disturbs a lot of peaceful travel time. Main presentation should be in English instead of minorities :)
