    Very well organized, friendly guide and very inspired by his region. The advantage of this tour is still to avoid crowds in the public shuttles and also to take the time to stop where you want. Disappointment nevertheless on the visit to Murano, especially on the too short demonstration of the master glassmaker.

    Friendly, competent, very knowledgeable, many thanks to our guide Claudia, who integrated our children (11 and 6 years) wonderfully. The transfers with the motor boats were also great! Highly recommended!
