We really enjoyed this visit to Venice. The guide was friendly, local and very knowledgable. After visiitng Venice we had a trip to Murano by private boat and enjoyed the visit of a Glass factory. It was not too long, but very interesting visit. Recommended .

This was a great tour of Venice and Murano. Our guide was knowledgeable, flexible, very nice with the kids and answered any questions. I would definitely recommend this tour to get a understanding of the history of Venice, the local life and Murano island with the glass production.
Venice and Murano Tour

Very knowledgeable and friendly of all highlights in Venice. We did not like the very high end Murano glass factory we were taken to with no time to visit any other shops on Murano. She was frequently on her phone during the tour. The instructions for the meeting spot were unclear which created confusion. For an entire day tour only 15 minutes allotted for lunch; however the pizza restaurant was fantastic!
