Meeting point well described, guide spoke to waiting people if tour was booked. The trip offers a very good overview of the most important sights. Explanations come in all languages one after the other over the microphone - some of them were not very easy to understand. Drinks were fine and refills were given again. Despite thick clouds we were lucky because the sun didn't come out at sunset. The view is great from the upper deck, but the smell of fuel from the boat is sometimes a bit disturbing. All in all, a great trip

Beautiful sunset

The guide spoke 5 languages. That in itself was impressive! Spanish, English, Italian, French, and German throughout the tour. The boat went around the lagoons and the islands that make up Venice. The sky was clear and beautiful. We were able to get great pictures. Although we didn’t actually get to see a sunset, we were able to see the colors of the sky and full moon. Venice is a special place and if you have the chance to experience it from the water looking on to land in the evening, it is truly enchanting.

We were super lucky with the weather and absolutely great sun, but the boat went against the sun and you had a tour with lots of stories about everything you saw. Unfortunately, we had already made one before because this was not apparent in the description, so for us it was double. So if you want to do this tour you don't necessarily need to book another tour. It was incredibly beautiful to see everything at the moment when the sun goes down and it is definitely worth more than a gondola ride in the evening!
