Venice was a fun city, glad we did the tour. However, there are a few things I would change. We had to meet to start the tour at the travel agency office, which was VERY difficult to find. We ended up calling them to get a land marker and finally found it. But why not meet at a common central landmark. Our tour guide was very old we're in our late 40's, opinionated and didn't really try to connect with us. She was very knowledgable about Venice and the history of Venice, but wasn't interested in us or sharing anything other than historical facts. The tour included 1 glass of wine and one small local snack. We understood this to be a 3 hour tour but she ended at about 2.5 hours, maybe due to the fact that it was so HOT.

Asked our guide, Barbara, to show us hidden Venice and had a fascinating walk around the back streets learning about the city and the people. We went at our own pace stopping off for coffee when tired rather than being rushed from place to place. Highly informative and amusing. We all agreed that on future city visits we would book a guided tour to help acquaint ourselves with our surroundings.

Grace is from Venice. She is knows a tremendous amount of history and stories about the region and its relationship to other countries and cultures throughout time. She is also a very helpful and kind person. Grace's tour provided my wife and me with the perfect start and an excellent overview of Venice ranging from history and locations and the development of this beautiful city.

While expensive, a tour with Grace was well, well worth it -- especially at the start of our visit -- so we could better understand the significance of what we saw and experienced for the rest of our stay in this spectacular and wondrous place.

Thank you Grace!

The guide was lovely but the tour itself wasn't especially interesting-something you could easily do yourself. The tour did not really
add much to your inside knowledge of Venice which is why you go on these sort of tours. It felt there was so much of Venice that we didn't discover, especially the historic sites.
