The English-speaking guide was especially nice. He spoke very interestingly and did not tire us too much with the facts. We took the full package and were very satisfied, because we got to see and experience a lot in a limited time.

If anyone is still wondering, I recommend it! The cruise itself is comfortable. The views of Venice unique and unforgettable. On the ship, brief information about Venice and the cruise itself in English and German. :)

excellent tour. easy to book, loads of space, stayed out longer cos we came across a fabulous pod of dolphins frolicking in the sea. Truly magical

excellent bike trip & wine tasting! Daniel was a great guide! Bikes were in great shape. We had a great time. Would recommend to all!

Die Tour hat Spaß gemacht. Auf den Inseln hatte man Zeit sich diese anzuschauen oder baden zu gehen.
