From the picking up by our own water taxi we were made to feel special. The hotel went out of their way to make our stay special. We loved the costumes and the Tiepolo ball was excellent and all in all made for an unforgettable experience. All of our friends were very jealous when we showed them all the pictures. We will certainly look for similar trips in the future based on this experience.
We had a wonderful time. All the itinerary arrangements worked like clockwork. The costumes and the service provided were excellent. We very much enjoyed both the events. The seats we had at the Ball were probably the best!! The hotel staff exceeded our expectations.
