What people are saying about San Giorgio Maggiore

Wonderful experience! The weather was not the best for us, but Tomazzo was communicative with us about the likelihood of the excursion. Once we were on the water, Tomazzo served us Prosecco and told us much about Venetian history and culture. Though the water was choppy from the storm, our spirits were high as he guided us masterfully through the tour. 10/10 recommend.

Excellent guide. Very knowledgeable. We saw parts of Venice and the islands we had never seen before. Very informative and enjoyable. The boat was great plus proseco and soft drinks. Don't miss this. It is well worth it.

Visited all three islands and while Murano was certainly initially a selling exercise there was plenty of time to look around. Burano was great and we had a lovely lunch there. Overall a very enjoyable day.

A well organized visit to the three islands. The only point that can be improved upon is that the tour guide's english commentary.

Amazing trip through Venice and its lagoon. Highly recommended!
