Great tour. Good information and fun places to visit. Burano is a quaint pretty little town, enjoyed the wine tasting of the unique golden wine, and it was fun watching the glass blowing demonstration. Definitely would recommend this tour. Our guide Jennifer was great.

Fantastic tour! Our guide Cristiano was so knowledgeable about Venice and all the islands around the lagoon. He was also very patient and accommodating with all of us tourists, taking time to suggest great photo and shopping locations. This tour took us beyond Venice, to places we would not have seen on our own! I highly recommend it! Give yourself extra time to get to the meeting place. Venice is difficult to navigate. Don't be late for this excellent tour.

Barbara, our guide, was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and engaging and planned a visit to Murano, Burano and Torcello which we all enjoyed. We would seek her out again when We return.

Very unique and highly recommended tour - a VIP experience visiting lovely places in a comfortable private taxi. Personally, a good balance of history, territory exploration, free time and insights into local products and habits. Suggested for all who want to "escape" from the big crowds of the city appreciating the surroundings in peace and relaxation.
