It is a great way to see the whole city from the lagune. The visits to Murano, Torcello and Burano were by definition relatively short. But for 3h30 it was a packed but very informative tour. The fact that all info had been repeated in 4 languages was very tiring, but the guide as well as the listeners. Esp. if one understand 3 or more of the languages. Maybe it is time to use a headphone system with a choice of languages, as the CitySightseeing hop-on and hop-off buses do it.
Giro suggestivo tra i canali più nascosti di Venezia, circondati da palazzi stupendi, in una città unica al mondo. Il giro comincia a pochi passi da San Marco e dura circa mezz'ora, prima tra i canali più stretti per poi sfociare nel grandioso Canal Grande con il ponte di Rialto a pochi metri. Il nostro gondoliere Mario è stato simpatico, professionale e gentilissimo. Un'esperienza che si ricorda tutta la vita
Nice tour, except that the Murano horse that we bought in the Murano glass factory, had a broken leg. I think the woman that wrapped the item did’nt pay attetion. I felt not really happy because it’s very nice souvenir. Overall the tour was almost perfect.
The guide, Deniese, was very friendly and very passionate about her city, Venice, which she as able to communicate to our little group. She showed us many major sights on the tour, but almost more interesting were many out of the way sights.
We really enjoyed this 3 islands tour, on the boat there’s a multilingual guide, on the islands it is a self guided tour of 50 minutes of each island which is enough in my opinion. Excellent value for money, I recommend it.
