We spent a great, exhausting day in Venice. Our tour guide Roxy always tried to fulfill all wishes and tell us interesting things about Venice. About the process: We boarded Riva del Garda punctually at 8:20 a.m. We did a 15 min on the highway. Break for toilet visits etc. At 12 o'clock we reached the port in Venice, where a boat took us directly to the center of Venice. Once there, we marched with Roxy to St. Mark's Square. There were 2 options: - Offer a gondola ride for 22 euros - 45 min. Leisure time (we did the gondola ride - mass handling, but still recommended). Then the city tour continued with Roxy. From about 2:50 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. free time. Afterwards 1 hour boat trip through the lagoon of Venice (already included in the price). At 7pm we went for dinner. There was a menu for 15 euros. Choice of: pizza, pasta or salad. Drinks included! Drive home at 9 p.m.

Highly Recommended!

In the morning we were picked up punctually before half past nine. Our tour guide Thomas was a very cheerful and always joking person. We drove quickly over the motorway - with a toilet stop, of course - to the pier near Venice. The lagoon trip was immediately combined with the transfer to St. Mark's Square - saving us walking distances! Well thought out at just under 40 degrees and very high humidity! Already during our bus trip, the lagoon trip and on St. Mark's Square we received detailed information from our guide in a fun way, peppered with tips and pointers. The additionally offered gondola ride of € 22 per person was well organized. The dinner (at € 15 per person) included a moderate meal (pizza salami, spagetti bolognese, salad or lasagna) and free (!) Drinks - white, rose and red wine, cola and water. In a good mood we went back by boat transfer and bus and at midnight - as announced - we were in town. Thanks a lot!
