Spend the day in one of the world’s most romantic cities on a full-day tour to Venice from Lake Garda. On the journey from the Lake Garda region to Venice, you'll stop for a short coffee break near Soave, and then hop on-board a private boat to cruise into the heart of the floating city. The estimated time of arrival in Venice is 11:00 AM. There will be a chance to book an optional 25-minute gondola ride, this is booked with your tour guide on the bus to Venice. While in Venice, take a walking tour of St Mark's with a guide and headphones and see many of the city’s most famous landmarks, such as St. Mark's Basilica, the Bridge of Sighs, and the Campanile. Stroll along the main streets to the Rialto Bridge and other monuments of La Serenissima. In the afternoon, you have some free time to relax and explore on your own. Go off the beaten path for a more authentic look at everyday life in the city. At a given time, a motor boat will be waiting to take you from St. Mark's Square to the transfer bus which will take you back to Lake Garda.

Since our hotel was in the north of Lake Garda, we started early (pick-up at 7:30 a.m.) and we were in Venice around 11 a.m. Tour guide Christina was very friendly and had interesting information about Venice. Both in German and English (mixed tour group). In the bus, the gondola ride (30 €/ride about 30 minutes on the Grand Canal), lunch (16 €) and a trip to the lagoon (25 €) were offered. Not intrusive ; payment only possible in cash. We only booked the gondola ride. The lunch, as already mentioned in other reviews, wasn't that great - we heard that from other people on the bus. Better get something locally; we went to dem moros (pasta to go) in venice we went to st mark's square and the rialto bridge; around 5 p.m. departure in Venice (boat to the bus) around 9:30 p.m. we were back in Riva del garda. Exhausting but I think more relaxed than with your own car. You can buy water and beer on the bus.

It was a wonderful day . The pickup went well. A few minutes late, but that wasn't bad. We learned a lot about Venice. We had booked a German tour guide, but everything was translated into English. That was a bit annoying. Venice is very clean. The tour of Venice was a bit tiring as we hadn't brought any drinks with us. Then it was time to go to a restaurant at some point. We had booked the gondola tour and the boat trip on the Grand Canal. The gondola ride would have been more than enough. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to stroll through the beautiful streets. We could have booked lunch too, but we found a nice private restaurant right on the water. It was delicious, but it's not exactly cheap in Venice. But it was beautiful next time we'll go there privately.

Excellent organisation, very helpful company member changed pick-up point without any problem. Comfortable journey from Bardolino. Fabulous, knowledgeable tour guide. Very good transition from coach to Venice. Well planned and enjoyable itinerary enabled us to get a flavour of a beautiful city and left us wanting to return in the future for more. Would recommend the experience and opportunity to take the tour. Well worth the money.
