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!

Excellent overview with a lot a local insights from our guide. She really knew Venice and made the tour really interesting.
We enjoyed the tour of some of the less touristy areas of Venice and the guide herself, Claudia, was interesting and fun.
Very informative, full of details, full of history, and i absolutely loved how much information she gave on economic and political history of venice, the important families that shaped her. Really helps one understsand humanity. Loved.
Francesca was great! Tour was exactly what we were looking for --- nice walk about in the neighborhoods with excellent background info.
we toured Venice with Giuliana. Giuliana was great. We didn't want to see the normal tourist sights and she understood exactly what we wanted to see and took us in places where the locals go. She gave us a good insight on the history of the city which helped us immensely on our sightseeing the following days
This was a fabulous tour that exceeded all of our expectations. Barbara, our guide, spent half a day with us and our daughter walking through different parts of Venice that tourists normally never get to see. Barbara was amazing - a true Venitian, who put the entire city structure into its historical context. Keeping a 16 year-old engaged and interested during a 3 hour walking tour is a challenged, but there wasn't a moment that any one of us would have wanted to miss. We made a few stops along the way to get some amazing food, some prosecco, looked at genuine Venitian masks not made in China, and found hidden courtyards in parts of Venice that were completely empty - undiscovered by tourists who roam from site to site. The tour was the highlight of our stay in Venice and we stayed at a Suite in the Danieli, so the bar was set high!
This tour was exactly what we wanted...we had already done St Marks and the Doge's palace and we wanted something off the tourist path.
Barbara A. was amazing! She know exactly the type of Venice sites we wanted to see and took us far away from the crowds. My kids loved her explanations, her enthusiasm, and her energy. Ask for her and you will not be disappointed.
