My Review
This tour was awesome. Took my son for his 30th birthday and he enjoyed this tour very much. Mike was our guide and he was fantastic. He was from California so it was so easy to understand him. What a sense of humor too...made everything so interesting and fun..but was also extremely knowledgable too. Highly reccommend this tour not only for skipping the very long lines but for the history and stories behind the exhibits.

My Review
Sure you could do this all by yourself...but skipping the lines and having a gurde to tell you so much more than any tour book or audiophone could tell you is priceless. Sarah was infomative and extremely entertaining. Her stories and enthusiasm was truely a treat. She had us doing little skits to show what it was like back in the days of the Gladiators. She had us laughing at her stories and wanting to know more. Very informative and extremely interesting. We both enjoyed this tour very much.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
Well, since I could not find out where any of these bus stops were, we were unable to experience this trip...very disappointed. No one knew anything about Viator...not the police, our hotel staff, or anyone we asked. We were told my the hotel to go to a certain bus stop and we waited for over 45 minutes and when a bus pulled up we were told it was not Viator and had no idea where we should go. Finally just gave up and walked around ourselves. Very disappointed. Better directions should be given.

Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Venice, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
My son and I enjoyed this tour even in the cold and rainy day we were there. Burano was interesting with the lace making and so very colorful. I do wish we would of had more time there though. Tortello was a short walk to visit an old church and interesting houses in the area. Murano was somewhat of a disappointment. The glass blowing was interesting if you have never seen it done before but when you compared the prices to those in Venice at the shops it was alarming to see how much more expensive they were. You would think they would be cheaper but they were not by far and I did not appreciate the sales people hoarding you to see upstairs thinking we could afford thousands of euros for a vase. I mean it was beautiful and all but I was not there to spend millions. All in all it was an interesting tour just to see the colorful houses of Burano.

My Review
Very interesting tour. My son and I both enjoyed this very much. I would recommend this wholeheartedly especially after seeing the line waiting each day to get in. It was at times hard to understand our guides accent but she did her best to make it all very interesting and entertaining. St. Mark's is breathtaking.
