The trip was totally worth any money spent! The pick up from Milan is early, but you get to sleep on the bus for about 3 hours if you wish to. There’s a pit stop half way through for breakfast and bathroom. Just enough time to recharge, and get ready for the rest of the day. The tour guide was very informative, and provided us with lots and lots of interesting facts about the area we were passing on a way to Venice, as well as the actual city of Venice. Once in Venice, we had to get a different tour guide, as only those accredited to work in Venice can be tour guides there. She was very nice too, lead the trip in a right paste, provided awesome information about the history of the city, and the current life there. There was about 2 hours free time that my husband and I spent exploring the biggest bridge, as well as the Cathedral. Make sure to pay the extra euro, and go on top of the Cathedral to see the square from atop!! Totally worth the extra 5 euros or so! Be advised, that the gondola ride organized by the tour guide is a shared ride. My husband and I were super disappointed by that, since we though we were going to be alone on the boat enjoying the most romantic city in the world with just each other, not some six more strangers from the group. Either way, we are easy go lucky kinda people, and that by any means did not spoil our overall experience in the city. The glassblowing presentation is kinda neat, but their prices are out of this world, so save yourself some precious time, and just dart through the gift shop, and out to the city to enjoy it!!! All in all, an amazing experience, and we would highly recommend it to friends and family!

This is my second time to Venice and I am still using local tour, as I believe the arrangement will be better. Not disappointing me, a comfortable coach, good guide and appropriate arrangement. 3 hour for one side travel time and consider alternative with Treno cost and time, I still choose this tour. The guide on both time explain the history of Venice and Milano. So it is worthy !!!! Only disadvantage is very earily assemble which is 07:00am at the Milano tourist Centre. The I ternary improved and can arrive at Milano at 07:00pm to 07:30pm approximately. Nearby have Metro and public transport making hotel returning easier.

We really enjoyed this trip. Meeting point was easy to find. The tour was organized and ran smoothly from beginning to end. Serena was a terrific guide and Moritzio a wonderful driver. We enjoyed the tour of Venice and the free time walking around on our own. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Sofia was our guide getting to Venice but then Chiara took over. Both ladies were great. Tour seemed rush once in Venice due to long travel time. You really need a few days to see Venice. We did enjoy a gondola ride and watched a glass blower plus has some free time to shop.

Wonderful day trip to Venice. The tour guide was very knowledgable and provided a good general overview. We were only about 12 people so it was a nice small group.

Outstanding! Perfect day trip to get introduced to Venice. Our city guide was very knowledgeable and not only showed us the major attractions, but also a few hidden gems. Her advice on where to have lunch was spot on. Very glad we took this excursion!

We were very lucky as we took this tour mid December and the weather was very kind to us. We were told that in the Summer, Venice can be overcrowded with visitors but not so much in December. We got the wonder around without too many crowds and even got a good discount via the guide for our gondola ride which just completed a brilliant day. Highly recommended.

Tour was well organised and we had ample time to roam around on our own and explore Venice. The guide even arranged for our gondola trips.

The tour was well managed and allocated enough time for a guided segment as well as ample time for personal sightseeing. The guide also helped us arrange for gondola rides.

After warnings from friends about Venice being an expensive tourist trap, I opted to visit the city, for one day only, from Milan. I chose Zani Viaggi for my trip because of their wonderful reviews, convenient meeting place, and price. I was not disappointed. The bus was clean and comfortable, there was a bathroom break mid-trip, a prearranged boat excursion, a designated Venice tour leader and admission to a glass blowing demonstration all included. I opted to pay extra for the gondola ride and you should too. You're in Venice! Why not?

Great Experience! Wish i had more time in Venice. My tour guide was perfect!

Great trip, but soooo much to do in one day. It was a great way to get acquainted with the city, but I would've loved more time to wander around. But the suggested gondola tour was great as was the tour around the city. I never think it's useful to visit the artisans, but seeing the glass maker was pretty cool. Overall a good tour!

excellent tour of Venice, wish it could have been longer

There is no better, more convenient way to experience a day in Venice if you are tight on time. Our tour departed punctually and the ride was very comfortable in our well-air conditioned coach. Our tour guide, Eddie, was extremely knowledgeable about so much history of the Italian city states and the eventual unification of the republic. The trip makes for a very long and full day but it is immensely informative and interesting to see. A last note the gondola ride is something to do if you want to be able to say you've done it. Otherwise, I found it to not be worth the money or the time. What a racket those guys have!
