“Wonderful Family Tour of Venice”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

Helene was a wonderful guide for our guided family tour of Venice. She did a great job navigating the crowds to ensure we saw everything we wanted to see -- we only had the 1 day to tour Venice. Helene did well to make the sights interesting for the teenagers. The visit to the glass works was very interesting. Thank you Helene.

“Great way to see Venice”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Having been to Venice before without a personal guide, I have to say that this tour is more than worth the money. A guide can get you to the highlights quickly and avoid the lines while also providing a beautiful experience. For example, our guide took us on a water taxi for part of the tour and it was a lovely way to see the city and learn about it while enjoying the ride. Fernando was an excellent guide to our family of 6. He answered all our questions and provided a wealth of information about the city and the Italian lifestyle. We all enjoyed it - ages 14-70 years old in our group. I definitely think everyone that has the means should use this company - wonderful experience.

“Great Tour of Venice covering a lot in a little amount of time”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

First off, booking this tour was so easy and pleasant. They were very flexible, we received detailed info and, our tour guide, Sabrina, met us right in our hotel.

The tour was perfect since we had such a short amount of time in Venice and we wanted to cover as much ground/water as possible. It started with a private boat tour which took us through the Grand Canal, around different alleyways, and through the canals of Venice. Sabrina gave us detailed history and information on the different buildings and answered all our questions about Venice itself! She was engaging and thorough and made sure that we would see all the interesting sights.

After the boat tour, we stopped in St Marks and were able to see the lovely view from the Bell Tower. After that, Sabrina literally took us through the streets and alleyways of Venice stopping at different sights and making sure that we got our money's worth. I can't believe how much ground we covered, how much of Venice we saw, and how much fun our kids had. It made the rest of our trip so relaxing because, having seen so much on the tour, we just leisurely wandered around, got lost and just enjoyed being there.

I highly recommend the Venice With Kids land/water combo tour if this is your first time in Venice and you want to be able to see a lot in a short amount of time.
