Excellent bus trip. We saw the three islands with this bus tour and it was amazing. The guy was multilingual which was a great help. There was more than enough time at each island to walk around and get a bite to eat. The staff were lovely and very accommodating to everyone on board. For the money you pay this is definitely worth it. If I’m ever to come back to Venice, I’ll be booking this tour for a day out. Cannot recommend enough!

Great day trip. Andrea our guide who spoke 5 languages including French was very interesting, giving us information on Venice as soon as we left the piazza de Roma, then on Burano advice for eating, bringing back souvenirs or specialties. In short, he was top notch. Organization question on the other hand the difficult beginning, I had received a confirmation asking me to exchange the voucher for a ticket… impossible to find a counter, impossible to find someone to inform us neither at the kfc, nor inside the station or at the tourist office. In fact, there is no need to do all that, the flash code is accepted on boarding the boat by the guide. And the pontoon of the Doge di Venizia company is really in front of the kfc.

De hulp van zowel de organisatie (lukte niet om digitaal te boeken) en de wandeling waren prima en erg leuk en leerzaam. Had het niet willen missen en zou het zeker weer doen. Onze gids Simona wist veel en bracht e.e.a. met de nodige humor en interactie. Alleen het alleerste begin bij de ontvangst kwam Simona wat stug over maar dat bleek dus gelukkig 100% mee te vallen. Simona bedankt voor de superleuke tour!! Maris en Louis Nederland
