This was a really exciting time. We got to Venice and were given a glass blowing demonstration first. We were then given time to either go on the gondola ride or spend the hour touring Venice alone. I chose the later and had lunch and did some shopping. We were then given a personal tour of the 6 districts in Venice by a guide. We promised to be nice and she was able to guide us through the city using the routes only locals use. This was a nice touch as we were able to get thought the whole thing in about an hour and I didn't feel rushed at all. Great time!!!

so much fun, our guide was funny and knowledgeable. It was nice to have someone who knows the layout of the city, we found an amazing little place off the main path to have lunch. I highly recommend getting out of the main crowd and explore.

Great tour of Venice, even if it was just for a few hours. The tour guide was knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and friendly.


4 star rating: Recommended February 2018

This was a good tour but more a simple walking tour around Venice with time spent at a glass blowing demonstration for some reason. If I had to do over I would just take the train to Venice directly and have more time there.


4 star rating: Recommended October 2017

A VERY LONG day trip! We travelled by taxi, bus, train, water taxi, gondola and the reverse order to get back to Florence. About a 14 hour trip. Venice is a beautiful city, however the travel time did not leave a great deal of free time to see St. Mark's. Very long Lines. We enjoyed it but would maybe recommend taking the train directly from Florence to Venice in order to have more free time and less travel time.

We are so happy we went on this tour! You have to see Venice, right? It was very hot, and it was very expensive to eat close to the San Marco Piazza. Our guide, Allessando, warned us of this. He was very knowledgeable and informative...
