The tour was great and Matteo is fantastic. Great information. Absolutely loved the tour. The only improvement I would suggest is that because the boat was mostly covered and we had 11 people, only half of us could really see the full view at one time. Obviously if it was raining, it would be great but it was a beautiful day and it would be nice to have the boat uncovered for better views.
Stefano knew the material. He pointed out all of the landmarks. At tome we were beyond them but questions. The taxi driver was disinterested bored, which took away from photo opportunities. Given it was a hot day, but a more open boat should have provided better ventilation .
Matteo was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. He knew the material like the back of his hand and was able to tell fascinating stories about the history and archeaology of Venice. Amazing boat ride. I would highly recommend this trip.
