The walking part of this tour was ok. The one good thing about it was that we truly "skipped" the insanely long line outside St. Mark's church. I would have enjoyed a bit more visiting time inside. Got that "rushed in/rushed out" feeling. The boat tour which takes place a few hours later, was really good. It's basically a water taxi taking you around the canal/lagoon, while the guide points out various landmarks/sites of interest. Overall, not a bad way to spend a day.
This tour was excellent. Our driver/guide, Marco, was great! Tour operated with 5 people, instead of the maximum of 8, so we were really lucky to have such individualized attention. The towns we visited were quaint and lovely. Asolo was my personal favorite. What's not to like about a town with only 300 residents! The drive was comfortable and the lunch we had at a family-run restaurant was delicious. I purchased a bottle of red wine from the restaurant to enjoy in my hotel room later on that evening. I highly recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed!
