    Everything was good. We enjoyed boat ride, boat crew was super nice. We had around 5h of free time in Venice because we left Porec later than it was expected. Passport control in Venice went pretty fast as for Italian standards. We didn’t take part in any additional activities (gondola ride, speedboat tour etc) that we could book and buy on the boat because we found them cheaper on GetYourGuide and we didn’t want to waste time on waiting for other people. This 5h were enough for us to walk around the Venice, make photos, got lost and find good, normally priced restaurant!

    There and back are easy. We only partially share the butter ride charm described in other reviews. The offers are certainly interesting and helpful for people who don't want to rush through Venice on their own. You only have a 5 1/2 hour stay if you add passport control and wait until departure. From 11:30 you can move around freely and by 16:00 at the latest you should be back at the harbor. You only have 4 1/2 times. if you want to move with the water bus, there is a stop right at the harbor. There, however, you can neither buy tickets nor pick up tickets bought online, which is 5 minutes away at the next stop. from there you can be at St. Mark's Square in 10 minutes. overall we were very satisfied otherwise. you can of course only get a rough impression of this overcrowded city. we like to come back for a long weekend

    Fantastic trip to Venice, very well put together and organised. The guides were amazing, knew their stuff. Lunch was excellent, just the right portions. I found doing Venice this way without any hassle of having to find anywhere to eat etc better than having to organise it myself. Also the gondola ride was amazing, I can tick that box. Once again the staff were amazing
