    Dear Charlotte Thank you for your review, I am pleased to read you enjoyed both tour portions. All the tours have a min of participants required to operate - as we are in a very low season in tourism it may happen at times that one of the tour portions is canceled however in this case you are always entitled to a refund for that tour portion. The boat tour operates with max 8/9 people per boat + one guide and there is space on the boat front and at the back as well as inside if anyone wishes to rest. We use only the boats that are have all the necessary authorizations to access Grand Canal and the minor canals. On our tour it is possible to switch places between the front and rear part of the boat - this of course depends on the cooperation from other passengers. I understand that overall it was a satisfactory experience and I will certainly forward your comments to our knowledgeable guides. Thank you for joining! Kind regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept

    As I write this I am saddened to hear of all the flooding...we were there in October when the weather was beautiful and the crowds moderate. We took a private tour in the evening. It was spectacular. No crowds and the guide was excellent. I highly recommend seeing this Basilica

    Prompt guides that were knowledgeable, thoughtful, and helpful. Tours were well organized and were a great value for the cost. I would have paid more. All six persons (three couples) agreed.

    We enjoyed the tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. However, we received poor instructions on where to meet and almost missed the second part of it. There was a lot of down time, which was nice. The boat portion of the tour was the best.

    Dear Sylvia Thank you for providing your feedback. I understand both tour portions met your expectations as the guides were knowledgeable and the tours enjoyable, especially the boat tour. It is not clear from your review if you are a direct client or if you booked via a third party - on our vouchers we provide very detailed information on how to reach our meeting point and it is just 100m from St Mark's square so it is impossible to miss it. Naturally Venice is a maze so it is always recommended to check tour locations in advance to make sure you arrive at the correct spot. If you booked with a reseller perhaps let them know that the instructions provided could be improved. I am sorry if you had trouble finding us bur truly our spot is very centrally located and our office is just a call away in case you need assistance with locating the tour lcation. I understand that in the end you managed to find the group and could enjoy exploring Venice with our guides. Kind regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept
