Wonderful insight into Venice
Anne_K, 11-10-2022
Our guide, Barbara, gave us a wonderful insight into the history and culture of Venice. We learnt so much in a short time. She took us away from the crowded areas into fascinating little back streets. We had a lovely time with her.
The tour company was also very good to deal with when we were late. One tip: if you are coming to their office by Vaporetto, the closest stop is Rialto.
An amazing experience!...

Great Tour with a Fabulous Guide!

This was such a wonderful experience. This was our fourth trip to Venice and also the best tour we have taken. It was our sister-in-laws first time and the tour guide managed to make it fascinating for all of us.

Luda is a local guide, born and raised here. She took us to some back ways gems that I have never seen before. Her knowledge of history and her pride at being a Venetian is evident. She was very kind to share her experiences of growing up in Venice.

I definitely recommend this tour and if all possible ask for Luda. She is so charming
