What people are saying about Veneto

My friend and I had a fabulous day out (12-4pm) on this trip. The compare asked us what languages we spoke and then he gave a running commentary in every language fluently! We had lunch , which was a bowl of pasta in tomato sauce, which was fine and we could choose a drink from the bar. We went along the lake Garda and then stopped at an appropriate spot for us to get off the boat and swim . The weather was hot and this was really most welcome. There was a short platform for people to jump or dive into the water or if you were oldies like us (in our 70’s) there were steps you could go down. We all laughed and played in the water with the boats floats, great fun . It was a brilliant end to a few days in Verona, we had been to see the opera on Sunday and finished our holiday with this trip. Really lovely thanks .

We had such an amazing time on our trip. From the moment we stepped on to the boat our guide was fantastic. It was a great history lesson in all thing Venetian and any questions we had were answered. We visited Murano and Burano and our guide ensured we didn’t miss anything at the same time giving us space. Would highly recommend! Thank you so much

This was an amazing experience! All of us learned a lot, we laughed a lot and would go back and spend more time with the chef as soon as we can.

Fantastic experience! Not only for children! :) I highly recommend to visit the workshop during the stay in Venice!

Very small group, a relaxed pace, helpful instructor.
