Such a fun tour!

Kristina was awesome! Super personable and extremely knowledgeable. We had just a few hours to get a taste of Venice and this tour did the trick. The private taxis were warm and comfortable. Kristina helped to point out and facilitate great photo taking opportunities. The glass factory and lace shop were fascinating. We had an hour to kill before our train back to Florence and Kristina helped to point out a great walk and a couple of wine bars to help us spend the time. A great day!
Our day in Venice

We were met in Venice after the tender trip in to the city by our guide Sylvia. She was a delight to chat with and very knowledgeable. It was such fun going by private taxi boats to the islands and listening to her explain the history and local color of the area. The visit to the glass works and tour was like a visit to a glass museum. Thanks for a wonderful day.
Perfect family private boat tour

We had a wonderful experience with our Grand Canal and Murano and Burano boat tour. We really enjoyed getting to ride down the Grand Canal and both islands. It was the perfect amount of time. Our guide was awesome and catered to us and our kids. She took us to a gelato store in Burano and let us use umbrellas when it was raining. Highly recommend this tour and the tour company was great to work with!

Our guide(Kristina) was thoroughly on target with the information as well as the presentation during our tour. She had a knack of connecting with her guests and making us feel a part of the story. Her English was excellent and she was free with information when it was needed.

The highlight of the tour was Monica - she was amazing! Monica was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and able to present the trip to all members of the family (young and old). Nothing was too much trouble for Monica, including a fantastic Venetian lunch recommendation. No tourists!!!
