Authentic and informative history about Venice

I watched Rick Steve's guide to Venice before my first visit here. I thought I knew quite a few, and boy this tour proved me otherwise. Led by Denise, a local born and raised venetian, I learnt how Venice was uniquely constructed. Why there are so many churches and the juicy story of "Ponte delle Tette"
Very pleasant and informative tour

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Carolina was very knowledgeable and friendly and made this a very pleasant experience. She gave us some useful tips and answered all our questions. We even got a photo at the end of the tour. Highly recommended.
Story. Political background, division and change of the city.

Denise (I hope I have spelt your name correctly) our lovely tour guide was so warm and friendly. Who better than a true Ventian born and bred to take you on a walk of this beautiful city. As well as lots of historical facts, Denise gave us an insight into the way of life in Venice. She also pointed out lots if hidden gems that we wouldn't have known about. My family and I are so happy that we booked this tour and would highly recommend others do the same.
Denise was the perfect guide to your beautiful city
