Private Tour: Venice Day Trip from Florence
Reviewed by: Kathy N, USA, October 2014
I really thought before I booked this tour due to the cost. But I have to tell you it was well worth it. Our driver picked us up at the hotel. As we drove through the country side he told us about the various towns we were passing by. I loved the folklore stories he told. The car was awesome. He was willing to stop as needed along the way. I liked the convenience of having the driver pick us up and drop us off at the hotel and not hassle with a train. Once we got to Venice, our guide meet the two of us. She walked us through the islands making up Venice. She was very good, in not just dwelling on history, but telling us the personality of Venice. When I booked the tour I mentioned that my 25 year old son was traveling with me and I wanted to make sure the sights and tour was geared to entertain him also. He raved about the tour, the driver and the guide. We had plenty of time to walk around following the tour. I would book this again.

Perfect experience. Our driver was entertaining, the ride so comfortable and very safe even through a snow storm in the mountains. Our guide in Venice was knowledgeable and warm and gave a full experience.

Our private tour to Venice was nice, weather didn't cooperate, rained the whole day. Our driver was okay, he was a little irrated that he couldn't locate our Villa, didn't talk at all during our drive there or back. Our tour guide was excellent once we arrived in Venice, she knew so much, one thing I wish she would have had was the "whisper" devices to hear. With the rain and people you had to be right by her to hear her.

It was a convenient and easy way to see Venice in a day. Expensive but worth it.
