Great walking tour of many areas of Venice
Catherine_R, 14-10-2021
Barbara gave my friend and me a terrific tour that covered many areas of Venice, not just Rialto, San Polo, and I Frari. Because there were only two of us on the tour, it was tailored to us. Barbara knows Venice inside-out and was easily able to answer all our questions. Just to note: tour guides in Venice who provide outside tours are not permitted to provide inside tours. Therefore, this tour did not provide detailed information on the inside of i Frari. This is not a criticism of Barbara; it’s just how it apparently works here in Venice.

Our guide, Massimo, was simply wonderful: prompt, personable, knowledgeable and flexible, adapting to what we had already visited and leading us to interesting parts of Venice, that we would never have found on our own. Full marks for him.

Maria was great. Knew her stuff. Showed us around while avoiding the huge crowds that swarmed for the festival. Then made sure to escort us to people mover and tell us how to get back to ship.. thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
