it was a lovely trip from malcecine to venice and back. we chose to walk around venice on our own - and we had a lovely day with delicious pizzas & ice cream desserts, our own gondola ride and saw the sights on the go-legs and fr the gondola. we had booked a guide trip by motorboat with the group, the trip was really nice & good in the Venetian island kingdom, and the guide who was on board unfortunately knew a lot meeeen could not keep his opinion to himself and constantly laughed at his own jokes… . but otherwise it was a really nice trip AND we were tired when we came back to Malcecine ❤️

We had a wonderful time in Venice. The tour was very well organised and had extras you could add on such as the gondola for cheaper than you could get it yourself in venice. Tour guide very good also

I can only say from AZ one of the best day tours we have done. Very good guide (Remo). We have already booked the next tour. What Remo suggested or said was 100% true.
