This tour quickly became our highlight of our vacation. The tour was amazing, the guide was very informative and easy to ask questions.
Driver-Guide and Escort excellent. The only thing you may skip is the morano visit.
We were on the tour on Sunday 14thJan. The guide in Venice didnt wait for us with the baby stroll even if I told to her and the tour leader many times. The tour office didnt inform me about the intense amount of stairs in Venice even if I asked by email (get your guide).The guide in Venice when we asked to tell me some things fow what we missed told un nothing (rude-just a sentence). Im not satisfied. I gave a lot of money and couldnt follow in Venice. The bus good and the driver careful. We were not respected in that tour,because we gave around 129 euros per person and couldnt follow in Venice. Even when we arrived to San Marco by boat with the tour leadeR Antonella she was running and we were trying with difficulty to follow and screaming slower so as not to lose her. Anxious day.
Overall the tour was organized well with a good guide. We had to sign up for the Spanish/English tour which was a bit annoying but our only option with the days that we had available. They start you off in a line waiting to get on a giant tour bus with 50 other people. Then they give you a headset to hear the guide. They also stop at two gas stations along the way because its about a 3 hour ride by bus each way. The tour guide was knowledgeable but had to switch to another guide when we arrived in Venice to an authorized Venice guide, apparently our guide was not authorized. The boat tour that is advertised is really just a ferry between where the bus drops you off an getting you to Venice, disappointing. Also, the glass blowing factory tour was really cool for about 2 minutes then turned into a huge sales pitch for the glass company, buy now, special price for you just today! All in all I would still do it again but a bit overpriced for what you really get.
