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.

Memorable experience made possible by a wonderful guide!-Stefano

I am an enthusiastic amateur photography( and travel) enthusiast. Stefano , our guide and a native Venetian and professional photographer, provided my wife and me with a memorable experience as he guided us through the byways of Venice. He provided me many tips on improving my photography while introducing us to Venice through the eyes of a native. In our 3 hours we experienced most of the well known landmarks while also seeing beautiful nooks and crannies that the average visitor would miss without a guide like Stefano. Because we were out on the early side, the crowds were minimal. I highly recommend a tour with Stefano who is as warm and humane as he is knowledgeable.

Plenty of ferry’s with wide range of destinations

Definitely buy a pass for however many days you are there as much better value for money. You can also jump on and off as much as you like. Do not buy in advance though as slightly cheaper in Venice. Although you cannot buy tickets at all the stops you are never very far from a ticket machine. Once purchased just scan your ticket each time you travel.

72 hour transport tickets were very helpful

Although slightly more than just buying from a ticket machine, it was reassuring that we had transport cover which included return to the bus pick-up point on the last day to get to the airport. We used the water busses to get from Venice to Lido, Burano and Murano, as well as using the bus on Lido and getting around Venice itself.

Waterbuses are great. Collecting online tickets was challenging

If you buy online tickets and collect them from a machine beware that the PIN number needed to collect the tickets is not on the email. Instead you need open the pdf and the collection code is the one that runs vertically up the ticket itself. This was not clear and should be made clearer.
