Private Tour: Venice Day Trip from Florence
Reviewed by: Tomo H, August 2015
Although it was brutally hot, this was a fabulous tour because of a wonderful driver Carlo and an amazingly knowledgeable guide Mila who efficiently navigated all seven of us through the several districts of Venice despite the crowds and the heat. She even recommended a fabulous place for lunch. This was the magical tour of Venice cue music!.

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.

Santi was a wonderful tour guide! We really enjoyed our day. We arrived a bit early in Rome and he was willing to begin our tour early. He was full of interesting information and recommended a good restaurant as well.
