To our great surprise and opposite to our experience so far, we 2 of us were the only participants, so we had a private tour in the Basilica Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari and La Scuola Grande di San Rocco, the gems fully up to the title of the tour.
Nadia, our guide proved to be extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and patient. She explained a whealth of details about the sites, the periods and the artists. At the end of the 3! hours visit we were absolutely exhausted but also excited.
We are totally positive the the tour would have been a great success even if we were twenty!

We had a wonderful afternoon with Francesca. Her enthusiasm and passion for Venice was contagious. We visited beautiful art in quiet sanctuaries and when one of the attractions was unexpectedly closed her knowledge and resourcefulness prevailed and she lead us to other sites via other parts of Venice that we had not had the chance or pleasure to visit yet. This afternoon and our time with Francesca was truly a highlight for us we'll be back!

The tour guide was fantastic! We learnt so much in the time we spent with her. She was full of knowledge and very engaging. We are all art lovers and we had a wonderful Venitian art experience. Totally worth it!
