      Guide 1 was not motivated and not very talkative. Samples weren't great, very cheap. The wine, however, was good. Guide 2 from the ghost tour was very boring and nothing came across. Price performance was not right at all, a refund would be appropriate.

      Pretty Fun! :)

      My husband and I had a very fun time. We liked that we did the wine and food tasting before the ghost tour. The stories we heard on the ghost tour were very fun and interesting! We also learned alot of history about the city of Venice. Although the actual tour for ghosts ended 20 minutes earlier. It would have been nice to have a few more stories packed in! Although the tour guide was very kind! :)

      Fun!!

      I liked learning the history of the island from a different perspective. It was nice to have a small group and it was very personalized for the people that were here.
