What people are saying about San Giorgio Maggiore

Very great experience! The tour guide is knowledgeable and willing to share. Really happy that he took us to the larger canals outside of main island so that we could see the sunset horizon of Venice. One of the best sunsets I have seen! The drinks were very good too.

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.

Alessandro is particularly welcoming and attentive to his customers. A great experience that gave us another point of view of Venice with a magnificent sunset. I advise

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!
