We really enjoyed the tour to Venice! Our guide, Antonella, was so good about taking care of all the details. She helped us maneuver through the streets of Venice, but also gave us time to do some touring, eating, and shopping on our own. Loved the gondola ride!

This was a great trip! We very much enjoyed the trip to Venice. It was extra special with our guide Rebecca. She was great at giving us information we needed making sure we knew where to be at what time, She was also great at giving info on Venice and she was a lot of fun to spend the train ride with her.

This was by far my favorite place so far while visiting Italy! We were able to stay with the guide or we could go out and sight see on our own with scheduled meeting points and times. I preferred this over listening to constant talking in my ear. Would highly suggest going with a guide the first time you visit!

My husband and I enjoyed this quick trip to Venice. We were able to take a Gondola ride for an additional fee, do a little shopping and visit the basilica.
