5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

We had a great guide (Marco). He showed us Venice in a way we never could have seen it on our own...and there is a lot of interesting history which he told us about. The gondola ride was something every visitor to Venice should do...and this one is just the right length and cost for the experience.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This was not cheap but worth it and a treat. Avoiding the main tourist spots we went around the back streets of Venice with a friendly and informative guide who had grown up and lived in the city. We saw/visited places of interest with a lively and interesting commentary.
The gondola ride was a great way to finish - wonderful.
