Wonderful tour! And a special thanks to our guide, Ivana, whose enthusiasm for the show (and my favorite character, Jamie) made it all the more special for me and my son. It was a very hot day and she was able to find shade and keep us interested in both the show and local history so as not to have felt the heat as much as I had on a previous visit to the city. My only hesitation in booking the tour was fearing we wouldn't get enough of Dubrovnik's rich history but happily, this was not the case. Ivana was very knowledgeable in this as well which made this tour worth every penny!
The tour guide was very friendly and walking around Venice in the evening is always incredible but the ghost stories were kind of lame. We'd heard scarier stuff earlier in the day on a regular walking tour and expected more but there were some small children on the tour so I'm guessing he toned it down because of them. I'm still glad we did it as it took to some beautiful sights we'd never seen before. A nice way to spend an evening.
Wonderful way to arrive into Venice. Unlike our previous experience using the hot, crowded airport water bus, we shared the water taxi with only two other couples so it was not crowded at all. We met inside the airport terminal, waited about 15 minutes for the third couple to show up and then were shown to a dock where our water taxi awaited us. We were given an actual boat number which differed from the dock number so I can understand how other reviewers got confused, but luckily, this did not happen to us. The driver greeted us, efficiently loaded our luggage and then off we went. When we asked to be dropped last so we could take in more sights, he first said no and then surprised us by fulfilling our wish and because the first two hotels were down side canals, we were able to see more of the "off the beaten track" sights of Venice we would not have seen had we taken the airport water bus or vaporetto. It was a wonderful and cost effective way to arrive in Venice and I will definitely book this the next time we're lucky enough to visit this wonderful city again.
