What people are saying about Venice

Good price for what you got - shame about the weather

I enjoyed the boat rides - although none of the commentary could be heard if outside on the one boat with outside seating and not much could be seen through dirty windows when seated inside on the inside-seating only boats, although could hear description well. Unfortunately a thunderstorm hit while we were on the second island, which was ok as was a little town and could duck into shops etc., but it was bucketing down on the third island where it was all totally exposed and everyone got soaked as we were not allowed to stay on the boat (although there was small ferry terminal building nearby that many people crowded into to shelter for the hour). Enjoyed the second island, Burano, the most.

Punctual and lovely - just a bit crammed

I booked the morning on the internet and it is much cheaper than booking at the station. They had to get phone clearance with my booking number because it was done so late via the internet, but that was not a problem at all. The tour is very nice hopping on and off several boats. I suggest that they do a trip with only Burano and Murano to have more time to spend there. You really don't have enough time before you have to catch your next boat - next time I would actually spend the whole day at Burano.

Very special to visit 3 villas, but trip was too long at 9.5 hours

We especially enjoyed Villa Pisano and would have liked to see more villas. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable, patient and able to communicate well in Italian, English, French and German. She was very impressive. The boat had good air conditioning and sufficient, comfortable seating. To reduce the length of the trip: Could the boat go faster? Could passengers be expected to bring their lunch?

Well timed and organized with extremely knowledgeable guide.

Worth it. The fast pass options are great. Additionally you move along much faster as a group and get to hear about amazing history in any down time. Our guide had a few of our group members go rogue and always handled himself with poise and kept the tour moving as much as possible.

Elizabeth was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor

We did the walking tour, St Marks Cathedral and Doges Palace and all of it was with Elizabeth. She was extremely knowledgeable, really knew her stuff and gave us lots of little information bites along the way. Highly recommended
