Amazing - this tour is a must!

I definitely recommend this tour to everybody who visits Venice!!

The tour with Alice is super exciting and you discover beautiful places of Venice, where you might not otherwise pass by and on top of that you learn a lot about the history, art and culture of the Venetians and their houses, churches, etc…
Alice's knowledge of Venetian history, art and noble families is simply incredible. When she begins to narrate, you immediately notice her enthusiasm for Venice and that she loves what she does.
Alice took enough time to answer all of our questions and was very happy to answer them at any time.
This tour is not at all stressful or too long in terms of time. You can go at your own pace and Alice adapts. In addition, you have plenty of time to take photos or look at something longer if you want.
You leave this tour with so much enthusiasm for Venice and you are really left wanting more. I especially liked that Alice very often tells you something that you would otherwise never pick out in a guidebook.
If you have done a tour with Alice, you realize only how many exciting stories of the houses, churches and Venetian culture you would simply walk past alone and then miss it.
And not to forget this super price for a private tour only with your own group.
The hidden part of Venice is the most amazing one!

Our guide, Alice, showed us many non-touristy gems! Alice is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic young lady who is quite charming. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk with her and learned a lot about Venice!

Alice è stata una guida pazzesca! Ci ha raccontato storie e leggende di angoli di venezia che non avevamo mai raggiunto, preparata ad ogni nostra curiosità e ci ha guidati in questo tour sempre con il sorriso!
