Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Venice Day Trip from Milan. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Our tour guide was from Milano but she arranged a local tour guide for us. Both are so enthusiastic, friendly, easy to be with and amazingly informed about Venice. With one in the front and the other at the back, we never lost in this maze place! One star off because the broken air condition of the tour bus.
I wish I could have more time as well as free time. Always running to somewhere, so I wish I could have time to just walk around... but considering all, I think it was a great trip! Worth it!
Overall, a great day trip! Tourist season may be a bit overwhelming since off-season was still very crowded especially once the cruise ships arrived. The weather turned rainy on us--be aware of the season in which you plan your trip as Venice is prone to flooding in the rainy months. Our guides were great and full of Venetian history and cultural tradition stories. We'd do it again.
Although it rained much, we had a wonderful time. Our tour guide was well experienced and able to help us out with coordinating the gondula ride some joined and some not with a quick lunch, tour and little shopping. Bring a good attitude with every vacation regardless of where and when, and you are sure to appreciate the culture, country, and company.
This was a great trip to Venice if you are short on time! The ride back and forth however is kind of long and I wish there was more free time to get lost in Venice. Everyone on the tour was so nice though and I really had a nice time!
Venice was fantastic. Very good tour guide. The only down side was the small van. The three hour ride from Milan to Venice in that van sitting in the back row was very uncomfortable and a very bumpy ride.
I was really impressed by the tour. Our tour guide was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely go on another tour like this!
This was one of many trips we arranged with Viator. We enjoyed them all, especially Cinque Terre!
Great trip, good amount of time exposure to Venice. The water taxi over and back was very scenic.
It was great for a glimpse of Venice. Would love to come back and stay a bit longer!
Venice is amazing! It would have been nice to have more time there. The bus ride is 3 hrs each way, it would have been better if the guide provided commentary on the area we drove through.
I think this tour was great ... the provider should think about stopping at a wine vineyard on the way to make it more interesting
Bus was very comfortable and spacious! Franco our tour guide spoke good English, funny and nice. 3-hour bus ride w/rest stop in between. In Venice, you take a boat to mainland (20 minutes). Beware, Venice is very crowded! Local tour guide was boring, she talked too much and glass blowing demo was great!
We did not want to stay in Venice during our nine week trip...just too much luggage but we had to see so thought that this day trip from Milan would be a good way. I am happy that I did it because I'm not sure that I could have navigated the day trip on my own via train?? However, it's a long day. When I read the website I got the impression that we boarded the bus and traveled for 2 hours and we would be there hy 9.30am. No. The bus ride alone is 3 hours and then there is the boat ride to the islands so arrive around 11am...departing 4.30pm. Factor in a walking tour, a glass blowing exhibition, lunch and a gondola ride and there was very little free time. A very long day...home 8.15pm.
Good tour to Venice. Very well organised and on time.
Bus tour guide very accommodating and knowledgeable.
Tour at Venice was a bit short - but to be expected with such a long drive.
Overall a good experience.
One point to note - the boat trip from St Marks Square back to bus felt a bit overloaded. This is more a safety concern than comfort.
Nice trip though the journey from Mlan to Venice is pretty long (3 and half hour). Venice gets extremely hot and humid in summer so dont forget to bring your hats and sun lotions. the guide Sonia was wonder, special thanks to her. ALso the walking tour guide in venice was extremely knowledgeable. No rushing or running.
Only draw back was that due to long journey form Milan to venice, the stay in venice was pretty short. The tour starts at 7.00 am and for those who are staying away from castello and wish to catch the Metro to get to the starting point need to be quick as the Metro only starts after 6 am.
Luckily I came to Venice to shop (as I have already been there twice before), because the tour guide we were given seemed very uninterested in his job and I felt sorry for those travelling to the island for the first time. He didn't explain the history of the place and basically left us there. It is a very long day with 6 hours in the bus. Also wouldn't recommend travelling in August as it was incredibly hot.
It would be perfect if more time were given to explore the city.
The weather was bad and the city was so crowded. The tour itself was OK.
