The tour was very good. It covered most of the the most popular sites in Venice. The size of the group prevented it from being near perfect. It was a good value for the costs.

Excellent. This was my first tour with this company and it was well worth the cost. Meeting location was easy to find. Tour guides were well versed in the history of the city and spoke english very well. The lengths of the tours were just right. A great experience for the 4 of us.
