Federica was amazing! Great with the kids and she made the 2.5 hour tour so much fun! I would highly recommend this tour when you visit Venice. Thanks!!
We booked this tour for our only full day in Venice and Im so glad we did! It was absolutely worth every single penny. Federica was beyond amazing and kept our boys 8 and 10 years old engaged and excited the entire time. It was wonderful to walk around with someone who not only knew the area, but clearly loved it and was full of interesting information about things we probably wouldnt have noticed. We did the tour in the late morning and it was the perfect introduction to the rest of our day as she offered tips on where to go first and where to eat for lunch and dinner. We followed her suggestions and our day in Venice was one of the best ones in our whole Italy trip. We fell in love with the beauty and charm of Venice and I know its because we knew some of the background, thanks to Federica. If Im venice again, I would book this tour in a heartbeat. If you are considering booking this tour and you have children, you will not regret it! We all really enjoyed it! Thank you Federica!
Federica was great! We travelled with a 5 year old and an 8 year old and this was perfect for them. We were a bit doubtful about the attention span of our kids but her quiz and prizes kept them entertained and the adults learned lots too - taking us to places in Venice we would never have come across. Federica took us to places that were away from the tourists and shaded from the hot summer sun. There was just us and one other family who had a 7 year old and a 12 year old and they were happy too! Thanks Federica! Meet her in the square in front of the church on the instructions.
This tour was great. Our guide I'm sorry I've forgotten her name did a wonderful job of keeping both parents and children engaged and entertained. It's fun to walk around Venice on your own, but there are a lot of details and local history that you only get if you take a tour. Recommended.
What a wonderful interactive tour! My 9 year old was truly engaged the entire time, yet I too enjoyed every minute as an adult! I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see the best of Venice!
Fredericka was our tour guide and the kids our boys 9 and 11 really liked her. We also enjoyed meeting another family on this tour as it was a good diversion to have another child in the mix. We learnt interesting facts about Venice and loved our gelato stop. Fredericka was great at pointing out local places to eat and the kids liked all their prizes they won on the way. It didn't have quite as much historical content as I expected however it certainly kept the kids moving and entertained.
This tour was perfect for the Kids and us parents, were taken into loads of
Off the beaten track places that we never have found otherwise. Our guide Federica was charming, knowledgable and brilliant with engaging the kids and keeping their interest. Just Brilliant thank you.
Veronica was engaging from the moment we met her! She has a great knack for getting the kids involved and asking and answering questions that get them involved and keep them interested. She kept the energy going throughout the tour. If you are going to Venice and have kids then this is the tour for you. You wont be disappointed!
