Easy to book through the app. Picked up on time. App stated that hotel pickups not included and only one pickup available per resort. However, after walking 2 km to get to our pickup we then drove back past our hotel and picked up other passengers just a few metres from our hotel. We then proceeded to pick up other passengers from multiple pickup points in other resorts!! Loved Venice itself. Unfortunately, the commentary was heavily weighted in favour of German translation and it was difficult to pick out the English. Commentary on the boat going to Venice was impossible to hear. Don't fall for the scare stories by the guide who tries to sell you add-ons for the day eg gondola trip, meal and lagoon tour. My advice is get your own gondola and buy your own lunch (plenty of places to takeaway that are not as expensive). Lagoon tour was interesting but again difficult to hear commentary.
Stefano is a terrific guide! He explained the history and architecture relating to St. Mark’s Bacilica and Doge’s Palace in an easy to understand manner and with a strong knowledge foundation. His background as an architect added another positive dimension. The 3 hour tour went quickly. We highly recommend taking it.
This tour is a definite recommendation, a must-do for everyone interested in Venice's history. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, with an in-depth response for everyone extra question we had and brought across the information in a way that was engaging and fun to listen to.
The guide was friendly, well informed and organized. This tour is amazing for people who want to be advised in historical facts about the buildings and life of the people of Venice.
Great experience. Very knowledgeable and engaging Guide. We were a small group of 6 so felt very personal. Seamless and quick entry to all sites. Would highly recommend.
