Fun tour, wonderful guide!

Our family had a wonderful time with Valentina. Valentina is a Venice local and was very knowledgeable, friendly and personable. Even though the tour catered to the young members of the family, nobody felt left out. The kids walked away with wonderful goodie bags while the adults walked away with fascinating stories and history of Venice. We highly recommend the tour and our guide, Valentina, to anyone looking for a great time in Venice!
Highly recommend

Valentino was wonderful. My son was grumpy and hot and she did such a great job being patient, kind and engaging. She even brought some gifts that my son absolutely loved. She did such a fantastic job of getting him to participate while also providing a tour that the adults enjoyed as well.
Great kids tour of Doge’s palace and St. Mark’s

Great experience with tour guide Sara. She knew the kids were a bit tired from the Venice walking tour so hit the main highlights of each place. She was very nice when interacting with us and our kids. Highly recommend this tour for kids and LivTours!
So fun for the kiddos

Sara was an excellent guide - super engaging with our kids and helping them to solve the puzzles on their treasure hunt. They loved it and definitely learned a lot. It was great to skip the line especially with the crowds in Venice and with the very rainy, chilly day we had for the tour.
