          The only way to see Murano/Burano
          We wanted a private tour of Murano and Burano and stayed by the airport so needed hotel pickup. This was one of only a couple willing to drive to our hotel. Sure, we paid extra for the pickup but we didnt have to hassle with busses and trains and boats. Monica was our guide and she was simply OUTSTANDING!!!! They even booked us a a 4 star restaurant on Burano and it was excellent. Every aspect of this tour was just beyond our expectations. This is a reliable company you can trust!!!!

          Gondola and sommelier tour
          We had an incredible time with our guide Sarah who taught us so much about Venice, gondolas, and Venetian classic wine/food. Must try experience if you’re in Venice!

          Transfer from Venezia S. Lucia to Palazzo Del Giglio
          The transfer went very smoothly. We arrived via train from Ravenna, IT after a cruise. Highly recommend. The communication was exceptional.

          Guiseppe was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Met us right at the platform, took care of our luggage, and have us done favorite suggestions for dinner. Grazie!

          Lovely hotel In an Amazing City
          Stayed in San Cassiano in Venice for 4 nights in September, A very nice hotel right on the Grand Canal with a lovely terrace on the canal when one can sits and have a bear of Grappa in the evening. The only down side was the steep strain up to the rooms, no lift so for the frail or infirm you must specify a room on the first floor. There is no restart in the hotel but a very good breakfast. If you want an amazing restaurant nearby then go to Regina Sconta just down the calle from the hotel

          Incredible crowds and modern shopping stores fill a unique 1600 year old city
          All cruise ships must dock at Chioggia, forcing all cruise passengers to travel on very slow ferries 1.5 hours through the south lagoon to St. Mark's square, the heart of Venice. Venice has become a huge tourist shopping mall, incredibly clogged with tourists. It is hard to find and appreciate the history, still available. A gondola ride is a charming must, however brief, to feel the flavor of ancient Venice. Water taxis, very expensive to get from airport to Venice hotels. Murano and Burano are even longer to get to. Murano emphasizes glass blowing, better seen on Netflix. Burano, demonstrates the beautiful painstaking art of beautiful lace.

          Surprise Proposal
          Micheal was the best!!! We had so much fun exploring Venice and Michael was so informative with all the history and hidden spots in Venice. We had a great time together, including learning about the gondolas and traveling through the tiny canals. My boyfriend unexpectedly proposed to me which made the experience 100 times better. We even hope to have Michael as our photographer at our wedding! Thank you so much.

          Private tour for the WIN!
          Gloria, our tour guide, was definitely the highlight. She was so accommodating and flexible with our wishes. Her depth of knowledge about Venice and surrounding islands was truly remarkable. I would book again with her 10/10. This private tour is worth it!

          a must with large bags but beware of unaffiliated baggage carriers!
          If you have big bags taking a private taxi from the train station to the hotel makes the arrival much more confortable especially in summer heat. The ride is expensive but worth it, specially with kids. Beware of baggage carriers outside the train station, they seem to be affiliated with the boat taxi service but are not and will charge you 15 euros to take your bags for the 10m walk to the taxi. This is definitely a trap!!!

          A photo shoot to remember forever
          This was the most wonderful way to start a Venice experience. My wife and I were on our honeymoon to Italy and Venice was our first stop. Thankfully I found this private photo shoot tour and wow! It is totally worth it. The photos tell a story mere words cannot. Very friendly service, very professional and pleasant experience. We will remember this forever.

          Just a sales pitch for each stop.
          The tour started off pretty good. We were picked up on time from our hotel lobby. Our guide, Paola, gave us some facts about Venice on our way to Murano. We got to see a brief glass blowing demonstration on Murano. We were then ushered into a showroom where we were pushed hard to purchase this shops items, which were ridiculously overpriced. When we did not purchase anything, we were ushered to the next boat headed for Burano. We were not able to stroll the island or look at any other shops. Upon arrival in Burano we were taken to the most expensive lace shop on the island and again given a short demonstration of the lacemaking. Then again ushered into an expensive showroom. We again declined to purchase from this seller. We were lead on a walk through the town. It was now the hottest part of the day and my kids start having problems with the heat. Our guide didn't know how to handle this and seemed annoyed that my 4 and 7 year old couldn't just tough it out. We finally ended to tour ourselves about an hour early, just to get the kids back to the hotel. I have been on several private tours here in Venice and this was just several fancy sales pitches. Our guide didn't know what to do with the kids and seemed annoyed the we weren't buying (maybe they get a commission). DO NOT RECOMMEND!!! We would have been better off hiring a water taxi and doing Murano and Burano ourselves.

          Excellent experience
          Guide and water transportation picked us up at our hotel on time. Guide was very friendly - knowledgeable and accommodating. The glass experience was incredible - the artist made several pieces in front of us. Opportunity to view and purchase pieces. The family at the glass shoppe was superb - they even made a couple of special requests for us while we waited and watched. Guide then took us to a lunch spot she recommended - walked us to the spot and introduced us to the owners who treated us like royalty - with no reservation on a packed day. All in all - a great time for my family

        Our guide(Kristina) was thoroughly on target with the information as well as the presentation during our tour. She had a knack of connecting with her guests and making us feel a part of the story. Her English was excellent and she was free with information when it was needed.

        Good morning Giordana
        I wanted to Thank You and Alejandra for everything. We had such a wonderful visit in Venice, Murano and Burano! The glass blowing demonstrations were fantastic and the shop was beautiful. They even gave us the beautiful horse we watched them make after buying our souvenirs! We are completely in love with the people on Burano. What a treat to learn about the lace making and see one of the ladies creating this specialized art.
        Having Alejandra meet us and arrange the private taxi made everything so much easier on us. We dropped our luggage at the hotel and then went on to enjoy the day. She is a wonderful guide, very friendly, flexible and informative. We had the most delicious and FUN lunch at Gatto Nero-amazing food and really great company with Alejandra and Max! Delicious selection :)
        Thank You again for a very special day for our family!
