What people are saying about Venice

A really good tour but lacked the advertised boat.

A really good tour with a great guide. Disappointing after a ‘luxury’ speedboat was advertised to find a plain old average water taxi was used. Definitely not luxury as the advertising and ticket guaranteed. We felt misled and particularly as there are some more luxurious water taxis in Venice than the two used in our tour. The first was very average and small which ferried the group to the island to go up the bell tower. The second boat for the remainder of the tour was also not a luxury speedboat. One other disappointing factor was the advertised tour set a maximum of 9 persons but 10 were booked. For the price of this tour what is advertised and promised should be met. A really good tour that could have been great if the boat was as advertised and the stipulated maximum number stuck to.

Our guide, Anna, was delightful, exuberant and knowledgeable!

We were late to come pickup point, because of crowds, but text and phone call from Sabrina with first restaurant address allowed us to get to it before our group got there! Another guide and group invited us to sit and have wine with them and their guide called Anna for us! Very helpful!! When our group arrived, all were very gracious and Fun!!Anna reviewed what we’d missed!! Wonderful day!!

Rialto Market Food and Wine Lunchtime Tour of Venice Reviewed by Kathleen, 10/14/2019

Excellent tour-expect a little wait in the queue

The content of this tour is wonderful. Audio guide is thorough and comprehensive. We were a little surprised that the pre-booking does not not allow quicker acces to the Palace. The staff allow chunks of the three queues (no ticket, pre-paid and groups) through in turn to regulate acces to the Palace and no one que is favoured. Having said this once inside the tour is excellent.

Would have preferred more about the buildings

Very knowledgeable and interesting guide. Most of the tour was focused on the ceiling frescoes so I had a sore neck by the end. Would have liked a bit more info on the history of the buildings but I. The limited time, she did a good job!

Excellent guide, great delivery mixing the facts with a little humour!

The Doge’s Palace is very dark and repetitive. So if your on a time limited day trip, you may be better served by giving it a miss and throwing in a boat trip or two. As let’s face it it’s the best way to experience Venice!
