This Italy travel company, and Valentina in particular, did a great job organizing our trip. The tours (except one - see below) and guides were terrific. We were able to add a football match to our itinerary and had plenty of free time to wander. The accommodations were wonderful.
We enjoyed talking to the guides about the local culture. It was great to find out about the city and country from a local's perspective. We had some fantastic food. Grom in Florence had the best gelato.
Don't go on the Island Tour in Venice. Go to the islands (Murano, Burano and Torcello) but not on the tour. They didn't give you time to shop on Murano or do much site seeing on Burano. Torcello was the only island where you had all the time you needed. Also you couldn't understand the guide on the sound system so we never did know what she was telling us. We didn't check, but think you could take a water bus instead.
Travel Company's Comments on the Island Tour in Venice
We recommend the island tour in Venice as public group tour because it is a good value for the money. The price with this format is Euro 28 per person versus a private tour that costs at least 250 per person. We understand that is not the same as private tours but it is the best deal to get to allow clients to visit the lagoon islands. As alternative to the tour we suggest customers to get the public vaporetto and go on their own to the various islands. Please keep in mind that while the tour has a guide, going on your own will not allow you to gather the information a guide can give you. On the other side you will have more time at lesiure to spend on each island.
