Fun trying different routes to get places. Walking is probably faster, but it was relaxing to know we could always hop on the vaporetto if tired.

I booked the ticket here in advance and it worked great :) We just went to one of the yellow machines in the parking garage (Troncheto). We just had to scan the QR code and within minutes we had our tickets. So we were able to get on at the vaporetto station and off to the post office (please validate the ticket beforehand at the stations for each trip)

It´s just very comfortable to just get your ticket and then use the public transportation (water taxis) whenever you like.

This was a great way to see Venice and very convenient method to get home. Be aware that '48 hours' means midnight to midnight, not from the first time you use the voucher. the process is very easy to convert your tickets and will save you time as the manual ticket sellers can get into pfaffing mode and waste your time. if you have a ticket you just go straight through to the waiting area

Purchasing the tickets at the machine with the voucher received online takes less than a minute. It more than paid for itself for us, since the vaporettos can also be used very well for sightseeing.

Despite the vouchers saying you can redeem your Venice transportation voucher at a Unica point of sale don't bother as the people I spoke to were not interested in helping. At the one outside the Venice train station the operator told me to go inside and from there I was told to use an automatic machine. Wasted 30 minutes of my life only to get shunted twice. And when you try to use the machine hopefully you will be as fortunate as I was as a local noticed me having trouble and he came to my aid. He tried the barcode at 3 machines with no luck and the 4th one we had success. So probably another piece of advice is use the PNR number. On a positive the tickets are an easy way of getting around Venice and we spent hours on the boats trawling around the waterways.

Great value for money. So convenient to be able to hop on and off the warehouses whenever the fancy took us. Visits to the outlying islands and Lido all included. Stayed in Mestre so used the tram and mainland buses daily. Highly recommended.

We arrived in Venice on 5th May 2022 until 9th. May 2022. When we arrived we got the bus from the airport to the water taxes. While paying for the 3day ticket one of our party had his wallet stolen. We did use the water taxes over the next few days unfortunately the weather was raining for three of the four days holiday which made things rather un pleasant. We visited most of the historic buildings and was very interesting best visit doges palace. I was eaten with mosquitos leaving me with itchy spots. I did not e joy the trip but the other three members enjoyed their trip.

You can't see Venice without gondolas. Gondola ride is an absolute must, unbelievable how they push the long boat through the canals with those sticks, without hitting anything. It's a pity that the gondolier didn't tell much and certainly didn't sing O sole mio. A little more enthusiasm there would have been great. And the chance to take a photo with your partner as you board

Sean L.

The walking part leading up to the gondolas was interesting and fun, learned a lot about the city and the tradition of the gondola!! The only negative about the whole thing was that our guide got us to the gondolas and left all of our groups, they were running behind and it became a little chaotic and we had no advocate for our groups. Otherwise was fantastic!!!

Staff are very friendly and the meeting location was easy to find. A nice overview is given before the gondola ride and while on the Grand Canal. The ride itself was lovely and relaxing and our gondalier even sang a little song and pointed out a few places of interest :) Head to Emilio Ceccato beside the Rialto bridge afterwards to pick up the shirt all the gondaliers wear from the nicest lady who works there.

This was a great quick tour! Stayed true to the time estimate and gave enough time to explore each place but not so much that you ran out of things to do. The glass blowing demonstration was super cool, and the colorful island of Burano was adorable and fun to visit!

Thomas B.

2 days ago
The price is quite good compared to other options, however it is a little tedious having to listen to the guide repeat the same information in 5 different languages, because there comes a time when he is talking about monuments or places that are no longer in sight While the boat is moving, it would be preferable to book something smaller with the preferred language. Aside from that, the overall experience is good and the guide is very helpful and friendly.

In a month long tour of Europe this was one of the very best things we did, loved it! Boat ride was fab, then Burano so beautiful and Murano glass workshop amazing! Really worth every Euro - thought it would cost a lot, lot more. 10/10

Nice and well organized tour. Both I and the children (14 and 9 years old) appreciated it a lot. However, it would have been nice to have spent half an hour more in Burano so that you would have had time to both eat and walk around.

Zosima S.

The departure location was well marked. The instructor spoke clearly, calmly and fluently in several languages (ENG, FR, IT, SP, DEU). The demonstration in the glass factory in Murano was definitely worth it. After the gift shop we didn't have time to explore the island of Murano, but we personally didn't mind. Then, a boat trip to Burano where we were allowed to walk around freely for over an hour. You must have seen this. An hour is enough time to explore the island. We highly recommend this activity!!

Really nice and iconic excursion when staying in Venice. The Murano tour and demonstration at the glass factory was superb! 1h30 of free time in Burano, a very nice and colorful little fishing island. I advise you to dress well on the boat because it was very very cold (period at the end of February) We do not regret this excursion!

Rio K.

The weather was awsome, so the trip was great. The kids (8-13 years) loved it-especially the glass factory presentation and the things at the store were really beautiful, too. So I would recomend it to the tourists with kids. The Burano island was beautiful. We also managed to get some pizza (even glutenfree) there, which was delicious and inexpensive.

A worker from the company was waiting for us at the meeting point and kindly accompanied us to the starting point of the gondola ride. We shared it with a couple, in total we were 5 people. We liked it so much that we decided to take a second gondola ride. Venice is beautiful, spectacular from the Grand Canal.

It is the first time that I take this kind of tours and I am delighted with the service. Arriving at the agency we asked for favor if they changed the schedule because it was raining and we did not want to lose the experience of getting on the gondola and the attention was immediate. When we were on our way to the gondola we were given a brief explanation of its origin and the tour was the best, the very friendly gondolier and all the staff, I highly recommend it

Steinfadt

Nice, but our gondolier seemed to be bothered by the fact that he was working and spent most of his time trying to look at his cell phone. Any attempt to try and ask him questions was met with blank stares. Glad I did it, but knowing what I know now wouldn’t be sorry if I missed it. Venice was a dream city to tour for me and what I envisioned was what you see on TV and movies. Reality is not so pretty or attractive up close with all the tourist, crowds, sanitation issues, etc.

It’s not worth it to pay online, you find loads of gondoliers that are free to take you on the spot. We paid more than £100 for an evening ride and after we booked it we were walking and as the gondoliers are trying to attract you, we found one and his price was 80€ on the board but he said he can make a 20€ discount cause that was his last ride. That would have been half of what we paid online, but I couldn’t cancel anymore the reservation unfortunately…

This was worth the money paid. We got thirty minutes of tranquil boating through the canals and onto the Grand Canal. A wonderful experience, which would be even better if the price was cheaper!!! :) :) :)

The gondola ride itself was fine.. good value for the money. However the gondola ‘driver’ didn’t say a thing.. was on his phone the entire ride and when asked a question he snapped an answer and went back to his phone. We stopped trying to making convo and just chatted with each other. Our friends in another gondola had a very pleasant driver from the same company. So it really depends on who you get. Overall I would recommend.

Good experience on Gondola. 30 mins go by fast for the price paid, it is certainly an expensive ride. Our Gondolier is great, he was very skillfull, going around tight corners in the narrow river lanes. I'd highly recommend this for the beautiful views and experience.

Was a beautiful trip! Well worth the money! 3 beautiful islands and a great host who spoke I think up to 5-6 languages! Murano glass experience was amazing! Little tip! Walk out of the shop at the end of the tour and go to the local’s shops, literally 2/3 of what the factory tour is charging! Burano is beautiful! Make sure to visit Bepi’s house and try their biscuits. Torcello is so peaceful and pretty! Also the bell tower you can climb for €5 each! We didn’t realise that until we got there! The sights were gorgeous!

It's definitely a trip to do. But be on time or 15 mins early at every point! We looked at doing the half day trip but glad we didn't as we got much more time in Burano for a chilled lunch and walk along the island. There wasn't much to do in Torcello, but it does have history, and you can climb the church.

Murano part was spoiled by being captive in one shop and factory. We would have liked time to walk to all the shops, so the stop should have been another 1/2 hour longer. Technically one could have left the shop but there was no time, and you had to come through the shop again to get back to the boat. The other two islands were superb stops, and perfect as they occurred. Fifteen more minutes on Torello would have been icing on the cake.

The tour was a lot of fun, our guide Julia was well versed and really gave us a lot of information and backstory of the locations we visited. The island were absolutely beautiful and the ride to each place was really comfortable too. Overall great experience and would definitely recommend to everyone that thinks of doing this tour!

Gloria

Very worthwhile trip. Small exhibit at the glass blowing factory on Murano and then around an hour on the island. then to Burano where you have 2 hours to explore (get lunch at this point) and this is a perfect amount of time to see the island and it's beautiful colours. Next to Torcello you get around an hour or so, again a perfect amount of time. It isn't massively clear to understand the points of interest that they point out on the boat. For the money you spend it is definitely worthwhile!

Eric

Excellent boat and heated, friendly and adequate guide available. Beautiful demonstration in Murano, Beautiful Burano, Torcello to see. For the small difference in price, the tour of the three islands is always convenient since it offers more time to visit Burano than it deserves.

We had an amazing day, so glad that we booked this trip. Great value for money. Murano and Burano were brilliant, there was less to see on Torecello but glad we booked it as we had longer at Burano than those who had just booked the Murano & Burano trip. Watching the glass making in Murano was really interesting too.

Björn M.

It was very good. The guide was there to answer any question and made it easy for us to know what to look for and where in the islands. My only advice to tourists who are not very interested in historical places to take the Murano and Burano without Torcello tours. Torcello is beautiful, and has it's own valuable attractions but different than what you find in Murano and Burano and not that family friendly. All together, it was a wonderful experience and I admire the punctuality of the tour including the transportation.

it was perfect! the times on each island were sufficient. only downside, the guide on the way back was not the same...very strange way of speaking and we didn't understand anything. the 3 islands are superb with a favorite for Burano and its colors! You have to climb to the top of the Torcello campanile, the view is magnificent

The pier was very easy to find as the instructions are so clear. The guides were great, not a lot of information but it was also nice to just sit and enjoy the views from the boat. Murano was great, if you want to shop, there are plenty more glass shops in the town, and it’s much nicer shopping outside. Burano was great and allowed enough free time to have a leisurely lunch and see most of the town. Torcello was beautiful, not as interesting as the others and fewer food options. The only toilet was a paid one. The tour was the perfect pace for the day, a good mix of structure and free time. Between each island was about a 30 min trip, allowing time to rest your legs and and hour back to the main island to rest before walking home. Great tour and highly recommend.

We had a very enjoyable gondola ride (one and only as newlyWeds) with our guide. Luckily the weather was perfect and the guide told us interesting facts about the different historically significant buildings along the canal as we passed them. The trip felt like the perfect amount of time for a short afternoon activity after we toured the Basilica and Palace all morning.

We had a delightful ride with Diario. He was so proud of his family’s legacy and we were excited to hear the details of his fathers work. We rode in his family’s 32 year old gondola and he even pointed out his fathers home. It was fun to hear the gondoliers banter while riding the canal. It’s a very quick ride under the bridge of sighs and back again. Time flies when you’re having fun!

I’ve traveled a lot, but never really used a guided tour like this one. What an amazing experience Anthony provided for us! Engaging stories, excellent driving, extreme patience, and outstanding wit made our tour an easy way to experience the Scottish Highlands in just a few days. The trip was well-planned in the number, type, and activities available at each site. Loads of fun and even great back up plans when traffic issues required a detour on the third day. Highly recommended!

we had a guide keen on history and we were only two people so privileged visit, on the other hand a little light content: a demo in a single glassware (where we spent most of the time visiting the store with the seller on our heels) + visit to the basilica, the rest of the island is apparently not planned in the program (too bad!) .. but very helpful guide in any case (to help us find the right shuttle boat to leave )

We chose a private tour with a guide to the island of Murano, and it was a very pleasant experience, a far cry from group tours. Our guide took the time to tell us about the history of Venice and we visited places far from the tourist crowds. We stayed in Venice for four days, and this outing was by far the best. Grazie mille!

Already on the boat trip by taxi to Murano, our guide Giovanna explained a lot of interesting things about Venice and the origin of the glass manufactories. The private tour of the glass factory was very impressive and informative. Due to the special Corona situation, the four of us were the only guests, which meant that we were looked after extremely courteously and personally. The subsequent stroll with Giovanna through Murano with a visit to two churches in which pictures by old masters were hidden on the walls, the onset of flooding due to the tide and the many stories that Giovanna knew to tell us about Murano and Venice rounded off our private tour away. A very successful trip!

The bus was very comfortable, and the drive was beautiful as well. I really liked Franco, our guide. He did a really good job of explaining everything in English and Spanish. Lake Como is a fantastic place, even in the winter(which is when I went), so must be best in the summer. Very picturesque. Food in Bellagio is excellent, albeit slightly expensive compared to what you get in Milan City. The trip was worth it, covering multiple locations.

Great experience, amazing day trip with a great tour guide. we could see the villa from House of Gucci from the boat cruise. The tour stopped at Verenna, Bellagio and Como. The coach was comfy, the cruise experience was great too. We also got the chance to eat local food which was truly amazing. 100% recommended!!

Silvestro R.

This was a fantastic tour. The itinerary was excellent. We saw so much of Lake Como, more than anticipated. The stop in Como was wonderful because despite being fall/winter it was a lively place with lots of open stores. The drive around the lake was fantastic and filled with lots of informative details, including a view of George Clooney's house from the road! The boat ride was also awesome where we saw lots of famous and beautiful villas. Bellagio and Varenna were beautiful and worthy stops despite many stores being closed for the season. Claudia was an excellent tour guide who not only provided seamless sightseeing information for Lake Como in both English and Spanish, but also a lot of great information for Milan. Giorgio was a great driver and ensured we got to/from our destinations safely. This was a highlight of our time in Milan and Europe. Will definitely want to return to Lake Como for a longer trip thanks to this visit. Highly recommend!

Overall the tour is well planned and the guide with us was very helpful and informative. However, I wish there was more time to spend in Bellagio which was the best part of the tour. The tour was ruined due to heavy rain and mist which was understandably beyond the control of the tour operator.

Great trip, excellent guide (experienced and very knowledgeable) and coach driver (especially around the narrow Italian roads!) - the day was well paced, with enough time in each location without feeling rushed. The boat cruise was nice and relaxing, with lots of interesting sights to see. My partner and I would definitely recommend this day trip out of Milan.

It's hard to find a boat or ferry to move around Lake Como during winter. This day tour provides the private ferry service to cater to winter season. My guide, Franco, was good in explaining the various attractions. It was an enjoyable trip cover Como, Bellagio & Varenna from 8.45am to 6.15pm.

We had a very good experience, everything went smoothly. The guide was brilliant, she had stories to tell about every part of the journey, both historical details and more pop stuff - eg G Clooney villa etc. She spoke in English and Spanish and gave clear instructions on when/where to meet. Also suggested where to eat etc. The driver was excellent too, plus comfy coach. And the places themselves - the Lake, the villages, Como - all lovely. Would recommend!

Sicuro C.

Absolutely fantastic. Worth every penny. Our tour guide Franco was very friendly and very knowledgeable. We also accidentally booked on the wrong day and asked to move to the correct day. The change was corrected without opposition but a €20 each penalty which we thought was fair. If you want to visit verenna, bellagio and como and see the sights along the lake then book this trip.

Damiano S.

The overall trip was really good - included a boat ride across Lake Como and the bus was good too. Our guide was an elder gentleman whose name I can't recall unfortunately but he was just awesome. He gave us good facts and was approachable for any information and presented well. The improvement area could be on the time allocation. The stop for lunch was at Bellagio where most of our time was spent just having lunch because of the crowds and wait time. If we had 30 mins more would have been perfect. While reducing some time at the last stop Como would have balanced this out. Not too much walking was involved but would still recommend wearing comfortable shoes as some areas are a bit steep.

I really enjoyed this tour. The guide was friendly and knowledge and the coach was comfortable and clean although the WiFi wasn’t working that day. The only thing I would change is to have a bit more time in Varenna so it is not as rushed and get back to Milan at the 11 hour mark. I highly recommend the tour. The boat rides on Lake Como were my favorite part.

Definitely worth the price rather than trying to navigate it all ourselves!

Franko our guide was friendly and informative. Very good manner. Disappointing that our “ English” spoken tour that i choose ended up being combined with a Spanish speaking tour. It meant that the guide has to be economical with information to then be able to say the same in Spanish. Not ok. I did receive Email the day before informing me that it might happen…. But it shouldn’t happen.

The lake cruise was so beautiful, the trip from Como to St. Moritz by bus was so thrilling, the St. Moritz views are breathtaking, and of course the Bernina train experience just WOW. 100% recommended. Special thanks to Giada, our guide, who is such a sweet person, for giving us every little detail to make this experience even more unique! And hats off to Santo, our driver, who made 6+ hours on the bus feel like nothing.

A very well organised trip. There's a lot of sitting involved (coach, boat, train) but you get beautiful and scenic views as promised. St Moritz was a bit of a disappointment, would rather explore Como area for a bit longer but understand it would have been difficult to manage timewise. All in all, worth both your time and price - would definitely do it again.

The overall package was a good experience. Make sure to pack a snack if you aren't able to get breakfast before leaving; there is several hours before you stop for a meal break. A lot of time on the bus but the train ride back from St Moritz is beautiful.

The trip was amazing & our guide was brilliant - really informative. The only minus I would say is that the bus did not have a toilet on, I think that when you are spending roughly 6 hours on a bus - it really should have a toilet, other than that - Brilliant trip .

We enjoyed a wonderful day visiting Lake Como and St Moritz on this group tour. It started with a few of us finding our way to the meeting spot and checking with one another to see if we were in the right place ... which we were. Once the tour started we quickly found our tour leader to be very experienced and informative in multiple languages of course. The were so many highlights and beautiful scenic panoramas along the way so collected lots of snaps to choose best ones for posts. The lake trip was a highlight not only for the scenery but some of the majestic if not historic homes of the rich and famous. The train ride over the mountains was something special. Special mention was the lunch we almost had in St Moritz when we ran out of time to wait for our meal. The waitress was not happy, but the train waits for no one! Thoroughly recommend this tour.

Great experience. Few tips. -Opt for the left hand side of the boat out the back for best views and photo opportunities. -on the red train, you can see if the carriages behind have less passengers-again easier to take pictures etc. Great tour, no up selling etc

Excellent day trip. We didn’t sit in the official Bernina Express panoramic train, as advertised. We rode in the regular passenger train, but in a way, this turned out to be better because we were able to pull down the windows and get a real view, smell the air, and take incredible photos without the glare - something we wouldn’t have been able to do on the panoramic train. The views were spectacular and our guide was excellent - incredibly knowledgeable and humorous. The bus driver was also very skillful and cautious as he drove us down a precarious and very narrow winding road down the mountain from St. Moritz. Bring a light jacket and light sweater, as it gets chilly up in the mountains. Highly recommend!

The weather forecast was rain and we could have been warned to bring raincoats or water repellent shoes. Most of us had clothes and shoes that got wet. I managed to buy a small umbrella from a hawker, but still got wet as it was windy. I was looking forward to a hot drink but cafe was closed. You can imagine reaching very cold St Moritz with damp trousers and wet shoes. We could have been warned on email before the trip to be prepared in case of rain as it was a long walk from the bus to the boat. Tourist guide did not manage our expectations. Also the tourist guide’s English was incomprehensible and vocabulary limited. She would say something in English and switch immediately to Spanish where she was more comfortable in. You could tell she was struggling. Not enough knowledge so we missed out a lot of important facts and info. The radio to listen to her was not working.

Amazing experience, I would highly recommend it to anyone planning on going. We were told the bus would collect us from the given location at 7:15 and we were told to get there at 7:00 The bus came about 5 min late which made my family doubt the company being legit. Once we got on the bus we were greeted by our tour guide sara who was very welcoming. She helped us with multiple things throughout the journey. It was around 13 hours long and we enjoyed every moment of it. The views of the alps were simply stunning, lake como also stunned us all. The food was amazing in St moritz And the chocolates were to die for. The tour guide had provided us with all the information regarding the food at the stops. Honestly sara was the best tour guide we could’ve asked for. Overall it was a 5 star experience

This was an excellent tour - the guide was very friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and spoke excellent English. There were 12 people on the tour, all of whom were given listening devices so it was easy to hear the guide as she walked. The tour was about three and a half hours, including ample time inside the duomo and the maximum allowed (15 minutes) viewing the Last Supper. I'm very glad that I chose this tour.

Fantastic tour, definitely worth taking. Elisa, our tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable on all things related to the Duomo, Galleria, Sforza Castle and finally the Last Supper which her detailed explanation given of DaVinci’s thought process and execution was really the icing on the cake. Well worth the expense. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk for the approximate 3 hrs as you traverse Milan.

Meeting point was easy to find, the guide was on time and very knowledgeable.

The Guide was excellent. She spoke perfect English and had a depth of knowledge and enthusiasm unlike other guides we encountered in Europe. The only minor issue was, no one in the group knew the tour would last 4 hours. I thought we were going into the Duomo then to see the Last Supper. Of the 4 hours, 3 hours spent walking and walking, and walking, from The Duomo through the entire arts district (and not stopping to see anything). After 3.5 the group finally got to the beautiful painting which made the grueling 93 degree heat, walking about 5+ miles worth it.

Katerina Panayotova was excellent. Knowledgeable, considerate, good sense of humor. Duomo: had new insight to stained glass, statutes, history. Same for Last Supper. Pointed out symbols that DaVinci used in the painting. History, restoration. Same for castle and pointed out things/buildings as we walked through area. Learned so much. Wish I had taken tours before in other cities. Highly recommend this guide and company

We are glad we did the tour. We aren’t your people but we learned about things we wouldn’t have and it made entry to all the tourist sites easy especially the last supper. We were given 30 mins at sforza castle to wander, use bathrooms and get drinks which was a nice touch. I was worried about the group tour but it wasn’t a large group (10 people) and everyone was very respectful of each other’s space, etc.

I would recommend anyone who is visiting Milan to even take this tour twice!

Really nice excursion to visit Murano and Burano ! The guide Andreas is perfect, he can speak lots of languages. Really practical to be able to board and get off at Santa Lucia or Saint Marco. We also visited Torcello, but I think it isn't worth the detour. The time we could spend in Murano and Burano was not enough, it would be better to skip Torcello and lengthen the time in Murano and Burano. Burano is the best spot for gorgeous photos !

It was a great way to see the culture and history of Venice and the surrounding islands. The glass demo was interesting and a must . The coloured houses in Burano are eye-catching and the story behind them light hearted. With quaint restaurants, for a light bite and a glass of wine. Spent approximately an hour and half at each location.

The information given by the multilingual guide was clear and interesting to know. The islands are a must see, Burano being the most picturesque with its brightly colored houses.

The educational visit on the manual processing of glass in artisan ovens is interesting. But I don't understand why the shop is induced in internal shops with very high prices, even in the shops in the internal square of the town. The paradox is that in the bazaars along the route to Venice in the Rialto bridge area, the prices of Murano glasses, identical to those we bought on the island, are 3 euros lower per piece. One out of five would come free. What a disappointment!!! Interessante la visita didattica sulla lavorazione manuale del vetro nei forni artigianali. Però non capisco perché viene indotto lo shop in negozi interni con dei prezzi altissimi, anche nelle botteghe della piazza interna del paese. Il paradosso è che nei bazar lungo il percorso di arrivo a Venezia zona ponte Rialto , i prezzi dei bicchieri di Murano, identici a quelli che abbiamo comprato sull'isola, sono inferiori di 3 euro a pezzo. Ne sarebbe venuto uno gratis su cinque. Che delusione!!!

The excursion to the lagoon gave us the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello. The boat ride through nature was breathtaking, and a stop on the island of Murano allowed us to see the glass making process and learn about the art of glassblowing.

"Great day! Bus was waiting at pick up point and was nice and clean. The guide spoke good English just took a bit to get used to her accent/pronounsiations. The stop halfway was really nice for a coffee. You need to pay at the till for what you want then take your receipt to the counter to order. The restaurant we stopped for lunch was just outside the ruins of Pompeii. We had a choice of pizza a drink and ice-cream which were all very good as we were hungry. Next onto the tour of Pompeii our guide for this was very passionate and very knowledgeable. It was a very hot day but she kept us interested and engaged. We had some free time at the end to visit the museum which was quite sad. Then we headed back to Rome with a toilet stop at the same place as before. The time seemed to go fast and soon we were back in Rome. I would highly recommend this tour 100% "

Our guide on the bus was amazing, checking on everyone, lots of communication, our guide around Pompeii was funny and full of information he really made the day that but more memorable, the hike up Vesuvius was something we will never forget even though walking up in the heat can be a big deterrent keep going it’s worth it when you’re up there and it is possible in the time given! I do not recommend the pizza place for lunch, the staff were rude and the food was not of good quality in my opinion! It’s was burnt and hard! Also if you can’t stop for souvenirs in Pompeii they do have them in shops up Vesuvius

Amazing experience, it just doesn’t hit you until you actually walk those streets, Pompeii is so powerful and sad. The trek was great but very hot, wear very comfortable shoes as the ground is uneven, I wouldn’t wear sandals. They have sticks to help walk up with, but don’t really Need them. Barbara was our guide and was brilliant, very informative, funny and friendly. The best guide I have ever had. Our driver Antonio was an super driver, getting us easily up those high and tight corners to Vesuvius. Overall recommend this trip highly, so glad we got to do it, despite the burning heat. Get an umbrella for sun block before you go, makes a lot of difference

The whole trip (21/08/22) was excellent from start to finish and that’s because our host Erika was amazing. We learnt so much information from her and her knowledge was outstanding. Erika’s humour made the trip fun and gave me lots of laughs that helped break the journey up. We felt very welcome and that was so much appreciated. Erika was funny, happy and approachable and the driver Joseph did a super job getting us to our destinations. My only regret was that I had no more small change to give as tips because it was my last day in Rome. I must also add that I did this same trip back in August 2016 and I trust to company to deliver. Thank you Erika for being an excellent guide. Donna

The whole day was a fabulous experience, Pompeii is something I had only ever heard about at school, the scale was breathtaking. Never realised how big it was. The trip to Vesuvius.....another level. The walk to the top whilst not for the faint hearted was well worth the effort. Glad to say we both made it and the views were incredible. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Great tour! It is a long day, with a lot of time spent on the bus but our guide Eriga used the journey to give us some great information about pompei, the various areas we passed and Italy in general. She also knew when to let people relax and sleep. We got a guided tour of pompei, that included ear pieces which was great. We then had lunch which you could get yourselves or join the group for a meal organised by the guide. Finally we did a hike to look at the crater of the volcano. The tour was a large group (full coach) with a mix of solo, couples, and families.

The itinerary was great we stopped at a road side cafe with beautiful pastries and then continued onto Pompeii where we met with our brilliant tour guide Willy ( very funny man) . Rob organised lunch for us and most of the people on the bus for a very cheap price and the food was lovely . Then we drove on to mt Vesuvius . It was a wonderful trip so well organised and easy for us considering we were coming from Rome. Rob was great he was entertaining without being too much in your face. He checked on everyone constantly and gave great tips for restaurants etc around Rome. I would like to have Rob on every excursion. Our driver Julio was excellent he navigated those roads up mt Vesuvius like a true pro.

Burano with its colourful houses was simply stunning and Torcello was so peaceful, it seemed to offer the perfect escape from the pressures of our busy lives. Our guide was charming and unobtrusive - I would definitely recommend this as a great way of exploring the smaller islands.

It’s an early start with first wine served around 10/10:30 so would have been nice to get a coffee and croissant at start of day ahead of the wine tasting. Would definitely recommend "

"Our guide, Leo, made this trip extra special. His knowledge about history added so much depth to the whole tour. He also sang and played the guitar for us :) very lovely tour. This one tour has made me fall in love with Italy, it’s culture, it’s history, it’s food and ofcourse it’s wine :) "

If there is only time for one activity during your visit to Venice then make it a tour of the Grand Canal.

Took this tour as a spur of the moment activity while in Venice. So glad we did. Got to see Venice from the water and learn a bit of history along the way.

Boat trip along the Grand Canal in a small group of around 8 people! Very friendly guide, explains the essentials! It's worth it to get to know the city from another point of view!

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise through the canal with our guide (I wish I could remember her name)! It was a small group. We were able to come out in the front once we entered the Grand Canal. It was a very personable tour.

The canal tour was great and was a quick way to see the city by boat. Overall, I enjoyed the tour for the views that it provided. However, the logistics of the tour were a nightmare. After purchasing tickets, I was informed that I should go to a meeting spot and that I would be picked up there. The site also stated that a mobile voucher would be okay to use. That was not the case at all. You actually have to go to the ticketing office and show your mobile voucher there. The person working there will then give you a physical voucher and will tell you which boat to board. That was 100% not clear, but the company and workers remained adamant that it was. Because of the confusion, my family and I missed our tour, but luckily we were able to join the next one thanks to a helpful member of the company. So as long as you follow my instructions (and not the instructions on the website / confirmation e-mail) you'll be fine.

"Long day but great opportunity to visit 3 Italian villages and enjoy a really nice lunch in the Chianti region at an Agritourism farm. Prepare for lots of walking and bus travel but a nice combination of guided and free time. Our guide was kind, funny and informative. Thank you for the Molo for the great day. "

"Awesome tour of Siena, San Giminagno & Pisa. Good amount of time in each place. Lunch was great, had pasta, salad & mixed meat platter plus 2 wine tastings and NO sales pitch which was great! Sara, our guide was awesome - informative & entertaining, the driver Emiliano was great, kept the bus very clean! Would definitely recommend & get the lunch option. "

"This was a great day trip. It was a bit unfortunate that we didn’t have a lot of time to explore Siena and San Gimignano given we had to leave to see Pisa, where there wasn’t a whole lot to explore. Overall though, it was a wonderful opportunity to see the Tuscany area. "

"The overall experience was good, however the lack of designated bathroom breaks during the trip posed problems. This trip is 400 km all said and done with no bathroom breaks. Each of the stops had a public bathroom available (somewhere), but for .50 - 1 euro (with the exception of the Chianti Hill stop). There were often times lines, which took away from the free time available. Be sure to have euro coins with you. The bus had probably 70 or so people vying for the same bathroom (plus those in other groups) when available and the guide was very impatient of this. The bus we were on was a standard charter bus, so the fact that there wasn't a toilet on the bus was weird. This huge problem be resolved with that small feature. We also were constantly rushed with hardly any time to explore the areas we stopped at. You get a tasting of the town, but no real time to immerse yourself in it and experience the culture. With that all said, I would recommend this tour. "

"A MUST while visiting Florence. Truly truly a beautiful experience to visit the countryside and walk through medieval villages. I was so impressed with how well organized this tour was. Manolo (guide) was so enthusiastic and funny and took such great care of us! Antonio (driver) drove safely and was wonderful! The lunch is a MUST! Do it if you can. This was such a highlight. The organic farm was stunning it was so great to hear about the organic foods and wine they produce and then be able to have lunch and wine with a spectacular view could not be matched. I wasn’t expecting much of the lunch as it was with a large group but it was absolutely delicious, the quality fantastic (my Italian husband reiterating the same). Do this tour! You won’t be disappointed! "

"This tour is a wonderful way to explore three cities in one day. However, you spend only about 1-1.5 hours free time in each city so it's just enough to get a taste of each place. Siena is the only city with a local guided tour. Visiting the organic farm and winery were lovely but our lunch was a little small. Wine was perfect! Our guide, Manolo, and driver, Nando, were kind, friendly, knowledgeable, and made the trip so much fun! "

"A thoroughly enjoyable experience. The organisation was first rate. Mano - our guide- and Nando- our driver- were excellent. Always congenital and professional. Nothing was too much trouble. We especially enjoyed the trip to Siena (fabulous local guide- can’t remember her name) and the lunch at the organic farm. "

"I’m traveling with my mom and we had planned on doing this tour together, but realized it would be too extensive for her, so I decided to go alone. Best decision ever! Met very kind fellow travelers, and can’t imagine having skipped Siena Pisa and San Gimignano. Absolutely unforgettable, and our tour guide Angela was a pleasure and so kind- I forgot to schedule a climb of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and she was kind enough to assist me in purchasing a ticket on site. Our bus driver Antonio was exceptional as well. We got the most free time in San Gimignano I’d say, which was nice because there are many shops there. The Siena Cathedral is must see- my favorite sight in all of Italy so far. On our tour we visited Siena in the morning (perfect before it’s too hot or crowded, lunch in San Gimignano then sunset in Pisa- absolutely perfect. What an amazing value for the price too- just book this! "

"Sara our guide and Enrico our driver gave us a really good day out, very friendly, well organised and caring. The tour around Sienna was excellent with expert commentary from the local guide, with fascinating details of the Palio. The lunch near San Giminiano was excellent and the town very atmospheric. Pisa and the Leaning Tower finished the day well. Just the right amount and blend of commentary from Sara and very friendly manner, and faultless English. Chris & Clare from Prestwood, Bucks, England. "

"A very good opportunity to get an expression of the toscany: beautiful landscape, delicious food, nice cities and impressive sights. Everything was very well organized; our guide Manolo was excellent: he gave a lot of information, always with a glimpse of humor and handled the big group perfectly so that the mood was relaxed and friendly all the time.

"We didn’t have a car, so this was a great option to access some touristic spots without having to navigate. The tour guide, Manolo, was awesome and really made it a fun time. It was great to be able to have a lunch with other travelers in Chianti and the backdrop was beautiful. "

"Sara and Fabio were incredible! We had such a lovely day with them visiting some beautiful places that we wouldn't have seen without the tour. The lunch and wine tasting was brilliant also. Fabio was an excellent driver through the gorgeous winding roads and Sara was super helpful and on hand to answer any questions about her glorious city. Would highly recommend. "
