Full description
Spend the day in one of the world’s most romantic cities on a full-day tour to Venice from Lake Garda. Transfer across the Veneto by air-conditioned bus, and then hop on a private boat to the heart of the city. Following your pick-up from various points in the Lake Garda region, including Limone, Riva del Garda and Bardolino, transfer to Venice with a short coffee break near Soave. The estimated time of arrival in Venice is 11:00 AM. Upon arrival, hop on a private boat and cross the lagoon to St. Mark's. Take a 40 minute walking tour, with a guide and headphones of St Mark's and see many of the city’s most famous landmarks, such as St. Mark's Basilica, the Bridge of Sighs, and the Campanile. Stroll the main streets to the Rialto Bridge and other monuments of “La Serenissima.” Learn more about the Republic of Venice and how it came to dominant both the east and the west as the “Queen of the Adriatic.” Universally considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the city is built on a group of 117 small islands that are separated by canals. The central sestiere (district) is awash with beautiful squares and crumbling mansions, along with ancient churches, ateliers and bridges. In the afternoon you will have some free time to relax and explore on your own. Get off the beaten path for a more authentic look at everyday life in the city, or just sit back and people watch in one of the many cafés of Piazza San Marco. A boat will be waiting to take you from St. Mark's Square to the transfer bus at approximately 5:45 PM.

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.

Great organization, due to Corona the departure location was changed. The journey to get there was, however, within the framework, wa gave a small price reduction and appropriate assistance with parking. Travel by bus and boat was well organized, easy to find meeting point in Venice. Optional offers with additional costs, but super organized and no obligation to use these offers. Gondola ride and lagoon trip by boat were used, the price was reasonable.

A great excursion with a very friendly, professional tour guide. After a punctual start in Garda, we arrived in Venice around 11:15. A short, informative tour of St. Mark's Square followed. Then we had 2 1/2 hours to explore the city on our own. Afterwards we had the opportunity to take part in a one-hour lagoon trip before we drove back to Lake Garda. All in all a very successful day.
