Guides were excellent. Boat trip was well worth the money. Useful to do on first day of Venice visit so you can find out what to do on rest of visit.
On morning tour we started late and then had to put up with commentary in three languages on the bus. I paid a lot of money for an ENGLISH tour. After the bus ride the guide seemed to be in a rush and just took us down tourist filled Streets, just stopping briefly at the basilica. Then , on this no waiting in line tour, we had to wait one hour twenty minutes to get into the Accademia. Just had time to see David but didn't have time to see anything else, as we had to go for lunch. Lunch was rushed, as we had to get to the start of the afternoon tour.
Afternoon tour started with another three language bus tour which was so boring I fell asleep.
thank goodness for the great afternoon guide. Took us round narrow streets explaining the history and where to visit. Then straight into Uffizi with only a short wait and an interesting and entertaining tour inside.
it made a difference that the afternoon guide had a radio microphone, so we could hear her.
John O'Groats, United Kingdom
John O'Groats was easy to find and the little port had all the facilities we needed. The boat crossing was an experience in itself and the only thing I thought it missed was perhaps some occasional commentary about what was around the boat. John the coach driver was excellent and gave a very informative and amusing commentary.
