'Terrible experience'

To do this guided tour was the worst decision we made in our trip to Venice. The tour was bilingual in English and Spanish, which should not have been a problem if the guide were proficient enough in both languages, but she was not, so it was a terrible nightmare. It could take her more than ten minutes to explain a story that could be told in just three minutes. It was extremely boring. The guide seemed not to have a clear idea of what she was saying. She was asked for some historical facts and she could not give an answer without hesitating. The best part of the tour was having the opportunity to hear the rehearsal of a wonderful choir singing while we were waiting for everyone to arrive in Campo San Bartolomeo to start the tour. I would not recommend it to anyone.

'It was fun but.......'

Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared wonderful stories of mysteries and ghosts but unfortunately the technical part of the tour was not handled well. Our group was for English and Spanish speaking: first she told the story in English then we had to wait until she repeated everything in Spanish (or vice versa). This went on through all the stops, sometimes the wait for 10 minutes or more. Several of us were disgruntled to have to wait for so much time. As a suggestion, perhaps earbuds for translation in both languages or have separate tours or switch from English to Spanish or vice versa as do translators, every couple of sentences. But again, the tour guide (forgot her name) was very animated and fun.

Dear eddy,

we are pleased you enjoyed the tour despite the explanations in two different languages. Unfortunately, you happened to do the tour during peak days and our supplier could not manage one-language tours due to a problem in guides’ availability. We apologize for any inconvenience and we thank you for your review as it might help us to improve our services!

Best regards,

'Not really as advertised'

The tour was not great. We were shown pages from a book and walked around with a story at each stop. The guide was a nice lady but the content was not good.

'Worthwhile but not a lot of ghosts'

The tour was interesting and Venice is beautiful but the ghost part was lacking. The tour guide tried to insert some ghost stories but they were a little contrived. Even so, the tour was worth the money.

'Veince mysteries and ghosts tour'

Tour was very enjoyable and informative. The tour could have been organised better as there was one tour guide for two groups speaking two languages at the beginning until the second tour guide arrived.
