Was glad to have Monica (not sure if I remember correctly). She was a good guide I have came across so far who takes jnto consideration of our old age parents n other elderly in the tour. Her explanation was clear and precise. Thumbs up.
Perfect way to learn all about these two prominent historical places of Venice.
Mirco our guide was so proud and knowledgeable on the history of both. His telling was entertaining and very educational. Would highly recommend this tour as you learn so much about what you are seeing.
excellent tour affected by continual rain on the day we took it which made things hard for the tour guide and guests. Tour guide was excellent and coped very well with the difficult situation created by the crowds and the rain.
My only criticism would be that at 24, the group size was too large, making it very hard for everyone to keep up in the difficult conditions.
We met where were advised no problems it was Easter Saturday so quite busy we had a small queue but no problem especially when you saw the queues without a tour.
it was very interesting and amazing to see I would recommend doing this tour
We took this tour with friends and we really enjoyed it. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour is a longer one, lasting about 3 hrs. The tour includes a number of steep steps etc.
