Awesome Boat Tour of the Venetian Islands

We had a great day out in the lagoon visiting the islands. Each island is distinct and very interesting. Our guide, Barbara, was amazing! She is knowledgeable, fun, and enthusiastic. She took into consideration our needs and adapted her program to please us. We enjoyed our time out - it went by way too quickly.
Fabulous day out on the water

Best way to explore those beautiful islands as you can go at your leisure. Get your skipper & tour guide to pick you up from your hotel if possible and have them drop you off at their local lunch place to avoid tourist crowds.

This was a nice tour, the lady who was our guide took us around and gave great detail. My only issue with this was that when we wanted to get a bottle of water, she took us to a place that totally overcharged us and it felt like this was done on purpose. I don't know, but I didn't like that. The glass factory was amazing and they shipped my purchases without any problems. overall the day was great, but for that water incident.
