Excellent tour - wonderful guide. Really nice to see the Venice that is a little off the tourist trail.
Absolutely fabulous tour, loved every second of it. The guide was vivacious, hilarious and knew her stuff. Really made the tour perfect.
We had a fabulous time and it was so informative too.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and took her time explaining the sights.
Knowledgeable and charming guide. Learned so much about the history and culture of Venice explained in a humorous and informative way. A fascinating backdrop in understanding Venetian society and it's place in history.
Wonderful and informative tour. Such a breathe of fresh air to get away from the tourist side of Venice and see were the locals live and breath. Found out so much more of Venice. Would recommended this to any one visiting Venice
Wonderful tour - so interesting and nice to get away from the crowded parts of Venice. Our tour guide was so informative and brought the history alive for us. She even showed us the square where she lives and explained a lot about how it is to live in Venice now. Great to have a local's point of view!
This tour was the highlight of our time in Italy. Away from the horrendous crowds in Mt Marks square, this tour walks through the back streets to see the real Venice and observe how Venetians live now and in the past. Our tour guide, Luisella was outstanding. She was an excellent communicator and conveyed her passion and knowledge of Venice in an interesting and amusing manner. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Of special mention was Luisella's explanation of the artwork in the Frari church - excellent. I learned and saw more of Venice in this 2 hour walk than I have in two past visits to the city.
There wasn't one bad thing about this tour. The guide was absolutely amazing and knew all the backstreets and her way around Venice. We really got to experience the 'hidden' Venice and for what we thought was a great price! Absolutely loved it and I recommended it strongly!
Our tour guide was a Venetian lady who shared lots of behind the scene information, fun tidbits and guided us to sites away from the crowds!
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. She had very good communication skills. She gave a clear account of the complex story of the history of Venice and its people. The remainder of our visit to Venice was enriched by the information she had given us.
Enjoyed this loved church loved hearing guide knowledge guide was exenteric full of passion and entertaining
In spite of a very rainy day, we had a very enjoyable and informative tour. Our guide lived locally and was able to give us some great insights into the local habits and customs, as well as, the history of the city.
Guide was great and it was fun strolling thru the little alleys and learning about parts of Venice that we would not have seen otherwise
Loved it even though it was raining. The guide was very interesting and informative and obviously loved her home town, Venice
It was a wonderful tour. the guide was so knowledgeable. The finishing touch was the visit to the church where her explanations of the artwork were wonderful
Knowledgable guide, fascinating information, a great introduction to the less madly crowded Venice. Much more enjoyable than struggling through the shoppers in the Rialto area.
This tour really gets you off the beaten track into places you probably wouldn't go to. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting stories about life in the city.
We saw parts of Venice most people dont get the chance to.Our guide was very knowlegable and enteraining,even saw a gondola repair depot.Good value.
We thoroughly enjoyed the walk. Our tour guide was delightful and full of interesting bits about old and new Venice. The walk took us to places we would not have gone ourselves. A wonderful way to see this fascinating city. Highly recommend
Definitely a worthwhile tour! Our guide was impressive with her knowledge and moved at a perfect speed. We saw architectural and cultural treasures that we would never have found alone - Ponte dell Tette, anyone? Some of the not too exhausted among us finished the tour inside the beautiful Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa where our guide truly came into her own with great understanding of each incredible masterpiece. Please - take this tour!
Our guide was Arianna. She is a Venetian so she knows what she is talking about. Even if you already know about Venice and its history, she manages to surprise and add to your knowledge. Also the parts that are familiar are presented in an enjoyable way.
Very enjoyable and extremely informative. It made the rest of our stay in Venice all the more interesting as we were able to recognise pertinent features in other buildings/areas that we came across over the week. The Guide was extremely pleasant and very wiling to answer any questions. I would rate and recommend this particular tour very highly and would, if we were lucky enough to return to Venice, do it again.
