Elizabeth was a perfect guide for us. Especially knew how to find the good locations and restaurant. On the bus she already made reservations for a table and gondola. Everything was well planned and always right on schedule. The return by boat was perfect after a long day of walking in Venice. There by train and walk to the center and back by boat near the train station back for the reserved train. A perfect trip and well organized, definitely a must to do.

Excellent organisation, very helpful company member changed pick-up point without any problem. Comfortable journey from Bardolino. Fabulous, knowledgeable tour guide. Very good transition from coach to Venice. Well planned and enjoyable itinerary enabled us to get a flavour of a beautiful city and left us wanting to return in the future for more. Would recommend the experience and opportunity to take the tour. Well worth the money.

Well-chosen destinations, a nice little party and a great guide who came from the Prosecco region, giving a personal feel to the whole experience. The winery staff were friendly and tasting the delicacies last delicious.
