You can buy this exact tour from the vaporetto station for 30Euro. It has the Alilaguna personnel providing commentary on the boat in 4 languages (EN, FR, ESP, IT). No "Viator" guide provided. Stops at the islands are sufficient for light shopping, but not long enough for lunch, or meandering around, etc. Torcello attraction is two very old churches but it is a long hot walk from the pier into town with not much else there. I might suggest doing the Murano/Burano tour instead. Or, just take the vaporetto out to the island yourself, though I don't know that all the Murano glass shops are open to the public -- they seemed to be tied in directly with a tour group. Burano shops are in more of a town setting and lots to choose among.
Good tour to see the highlights though we did not see the Bull ring as stated. The 2 Gaudi houses are drive-bys only so you have the luck of the draw whether the traffic lights allow you time to see them or not. Construction on Sagrada Familia meant we only saw 2 sides of the church this trip, which is too bad. Park Guell is pretty but may not be worth the time for some people. We left the tour at the Cathedral and walked back to our hotel since it was closer than ending the tour at the Museum (since we were on evening tour adn it was closed anyway). Our Guide was good and provided nice commentary in EN, FR and ESP.
Capt. Ken and 1st Mate Buddha were fabulous! We have been on other snorkling trips, but nothing compares to the Kealakekua Bay experience. We saw dolphins, goats and seabirds along the way, then TONS of beautiful coral and fish in the bay. It was a nice mix of fun and education by the crew and a fantastic day overall. Beat the Crowd sailing was definitely a plus as the big catamarans left -- along with their crowds. Thanks! See you again soon....
