2. What is included in our trips?
Our day trips are packed full of fun. We take special care in making itineraries that are varied, diverse and interesting. Each trip has a main event, such as a museum, a boat cruise, a gondola tour or a city walking tour. We also plan to give you just enough time to relax and wander on your own.
