A perfect intro to Venice
Charlotte
, Aug 2020
This was a fantastic tour! Cristina was very warm and welcoming, and extremely knowledgeable about the local area and the history of Venice. I was so glad to have her as a guide, as she pointed out so many things I would never have noticed by myself, and gave us lots of recommendations for things to explore ourselves after the tour as well. A great introduction to the city. Thank you for a lovely day!

We enjoy the morning and afternoon tours very much. Our tour guides are brother & sister (Marco & Marina), they were very knowledgeable and full of history. The boat ride at the end was very relaxing. A good way to end the tour.🤗

Tour with St Mark’s Basilica,Doge’s Palace & Grand Canal
Edmund S
, Nov 2019
Very well organized tour of the three areas. Our tour guide, Christina, was well informed and did an excellent job of informing us of St Mark's and the palace. The grand canal tour was guided by a very well informed individual (can't remember her name) under difficult weather conditions/rain. She did well under the circumstances.

All three tours were definitely worth doing. All three tour guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. All three of these are must-sees and this made it an easy way to do it. You don't want to wait in line at St. Marks!
