On the journey from the Lake Garda region to Venice, you'll stop for a short coffee break near Soave, and then hop on-board a private boat to cruise into the heart of the floating city. The estimated time of arrival in Venice is 11:00 AM. There will be a chance to book an optional 25-minute gondola ride, this is booked with your tour guide on the bus to Venice. While in Venice, take a walking tour of St Mark's with a guide and headphones and see many of the city’s most famous landmarks, such as St. Mark's Basilica, the Bridge of Sighs, and the Campanile. Stroll along the main streets to the Rialto Bridge and other monuments of La Serenissima. In the afternoon, you have some free time to relax and explore on your own. Go off the beaten path for a more authentic look at everyday life in the city.

We were picked up punctually with a modern coach at the agreed meeting point. During the trip to Venice - with a pee break - our guide told us interesting facts about the area and Venice. Despite a delay of one hour due to a traffic jam, everything continued to work without delay. Everything was organized down to the last detail. On the trip from the parking lot to Venice on a medium-sized boat, we got more information about the city. We received an audio set for the city tour so that we could understand our guide well. We also booked a gondola ride and a boat tour through the lagoons with our guide. With the gondola ride you have to know that there were four of us in the gondola and only 2 could sit next to each other, we had imagined the ride through the lagoons differently and would not do it again.

Bus came on time with a good humored tour guide. On the way to Venice, the history of the city was extensively reported. Furthermore, everything that was additionally bookable was explained. Really no pressure. Food that belonged to this offer was delicious and plentiful, there were even drinks such as water and wine, as well as dessert. It's worth booking. Arrived in Venice, as promised, we took a big boat to St. Mark's Square. The return journey was like the outward journey with a break for the toilet.

We drove to Venice from Riva del Garda. Since other guests are still being picked up, you have to reckon with about 4 hours until you are really in Venice (including the boat trip) and can start sightseeing. The trip was well organized, all departures were spot on. You can book various additional services, but there is no pressure if you don't want to. Additional services must be paid in cash. Don't rely on drinks on the bus for the return trip. These are not expensive but the cans are the small version.
