    Super Führung - Treffpunkt mit dem Guide war leider falsch angegeben

    December 29, 2018

    We arrived at the meeting place 45 minutes early. The guide never showed up. We waited until 10 minutes after the tour was scheduled. Still no guide. We attempted to call both phone numbers on the voucher. No one answered. Website not available. This was the one activity we booked in Venice. Ruined the day. We finally went to Doge's Palace to see if the tour had commenced there. The ticket office had no tour group from Get Your Guide listed. We paid $95 for absolutely nothing. BEWARE.
