Good option for private tour
, Dec 2021
Good tour overall Guide gave some history but also knew when to let us enjoy the view. She answered some questions, shared some history. The hotel pickup was prompt and drop off was back at the hotel dock. Great for people who don’t want to be herded along like cattle in a huge group.
This was a great trip....

This was a great trip. The Staff were most helpful getting us on and off the boat, as we are older, and certainly needed the assistance. We both love to watch glass being created, and the people at the glass factory were most helpful and considerate.
Valued beautiful tour we will never forget

Fantastic and knowledgable guide and driver took us on a well versed tour of the Grande Canal. He dropped us of at a beautiful factory in Murano, where we got a personal guide, denonstration and met the owner of the Factory. My teenaged daughters and I enjoyed an experience of a lifetime. We were also taken on a tour of the smaller, beautiful neighborhoods on our way back to hotel with tips on the best places to eat. Highly reconmend.

Much better than expected. We were picked up and dropped off as expected and were shown some little glimpses of the real Venice in the back canals, as well as all the major attractions on the Grand Canal.The guide, Katty, was very knowledgeable both about the history of Venice and the current economic challenges. The glass blowing demonstration was long enough to be interesting to all and short enough not too bored teenagers, even though it went wrong, Our host was fluent in English, informative and there was no pressure sales in the gift shop. Prices in there ranged from €3 to €10k+ for real pieces of art. Katty was happy to recommend a restaurant at the end of our trip and driver Enrique happy to drop us at alternative to pick up point - neither of which we needed but nice to know available. Exceeded expectations and thoroughly recommend

Private boat-tour!
, Aug 2020
We had a great tour by boat along the grand canal en all the highlights! Gives a great idea of the City and how its built! Followed by a Tour to Murano which was great! VIP welcome and a Workshop just for two! Beautiful!! The Guide (Alex) was very informative and nice ...left us at our favourite restaurant, as was the deal! The tour was private and all we asked for was included! Super!!
Highly recommended

This was a great start to our venice stay... was easy to book, our guide meet us at our hotel promptly , and was very informative and friendly. Our tour at the murano glass factory was a highlight for both kids and adults!
Vraiment à faire !

Ça vaut vraiment le coup ! Nous venions d’arriver. Du coup traverser le grand canal dans un beau bateau avec les explications d’un guide nous a projeté dans Venise ! L’atelier à Murano était très intéressant. De vrais artistes à portée de mains liste pour nous !
