Great thing to do. Alice was a super guide and made it very enjoyable

Really enjoyed it. We have our 8 month old in the baby carrier and she loved it too. Alice was very good and an excellent guide, making it very fun but also providing really good details

Maravillosa visita/ Wonderful visit with Therese

This was the only (paid) tour I chose in Venice during a 5-day stay, and I believe I couldn't choose best. St Mark and Dodge's Palace are two of the most crowded spots in Venice, and we went during the first times in the morning skipping the line guided by Therese, a well-knowledged art historian. We had a good insight to the history background of these attractions and had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful views from St Mark's terrace. As an art historian myself, I felt that this tour is worthy of every penny spent. Thank you, Therese! I'll recommend you in the future to all my friends.

A fantastic experience with our guide Anna

Anna was a fantastic guide taking us to cantinas that were hidden away. We enjoyed a selection of delicious food whilst being told about the history of Venice. We were also taken to a fantastic cheese shop off the beaten track at our request. Anna our guide was amazing, taking photos whenever asked and answering all our questions. A worthwhile trip my wife and I would highly recommend.

Enough time in both places and great to explore the islands

It was nice and easy to meet at the meet-up point, a bit difficult to follow the tour guide to the boat as there were a lot of people all walking in different directions - busy part of Venice. Once at the boat she checked through all the different languages and was very good at speaking with everyone. We all got on the boat and had a smooth ride over to Murano. The tour guide told us the plan and the time to be back at the boat. We went in to a glass blowing factory and watched the amazing demonstration of a man making a vase and a horse out of glass, we then went through to a little gift shop. I took a walk down the main street to take some photographs and then headed back to the boat. We then went on to Burano, I personally think 1.5 hours is plenty of time to spend on this island, it's easy to walk around the whole thing in that time and is very busy. Overall I'm so pleased to have done it. Nice break away from Venice to see more.
