De hulp van zowel de organisatie (lukte niet om digitaal te boeken) en de wandeling waren prima en erg leuk en leerzaam. Had het niet willen missen en zou het zeker weer doen. Onze gids Simona wist veel en bracht e.e.a. met de nodige humor en interactie. Alleen het alleerste begin bij de ontvangst kwam Simona wat stug over maar dat bleek dus gelukkig 100% mee te vallen. Simona bedankt voor de superleuke tour!! Maris en Louis Nederland

Very nice tour! You could save yourself the detour to Torcello. There is not much going on there, unless you absolutely want to visit the church for an entrance fee...
