Francesco, the guide, made us spend the time of the visit in such a pleasant way as not to perceive the passing of minutes. Interesting, fun, curious and very knowledgeable. The only perplexity is about "hop-on hop-off", in reality you leave and arrive, you cannot access different places or at different times, also because finding your way around Venice is actually not the easiest thing in the world. ! Thank you very much for the memory that we will bring

It was ok. This was due to the fact it was a very large group. Took a long while to get going and we thought we booked an English speaking tour which it was but she then also told the same in Italian. That’s ok, but it took the tour so long. If you suffer with bad back and knees be highly prepared as there’s a bit of waiting around on each point whilst the translation is going on. The lady was very sweet and lovely but hard to understand at times. Venice is beautiful without a doubt and it would have been even better if we could have done a bit more and not so much standing around.
