The tour guides were pretty good but the actual physical tour was awful. The palace was boring and the Basilica was dark and people were smashed in like sardines. The boat tour could have been nice but unless you are the first three on the boat you are inside the boat room and can only see through little windows. Really... More

Small group tour to the Dolomites was excellent. Justin was an enthusiastic guide and was always keen to assist with photography. Restaurant visited for lunch had unbelievable gnocchi and a beautiful vista. Views were spectacular, and there were plenty of stops along the way to get the best photos.

This was the best tour in all of Italy. Justin was both friendly & knowledgable. We saw a ton in the 8 or so hours allotted, including a fabulous meal. Justin even took posed photos of professional quality of all on the tour. I would absolutely book anything with Justin again.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
