What people are saying about St. Mark's Campanile

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.

The tour around the Venetian lagoons was so amazing. We're so glad we did it. Alessandro was very knowledgeable and shared great bits of info along the ride. The trip ended right as the sun was going down and we got some great pictures.

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

Loved it. Alessandro was an exceptional host. Very punctual, knowledgeable and professional. Great experience for our family of 4. Highly recommend!

Amazing trip through Venice and its lagoon. Highly recommended!
