This tour with my significant other was literally 2 years ago. We still talk about how amazing the instructor, food, wine and history was. This memory was precious. The food/wine quality was incredible and so was the amount they gave us. We were not only extremely full and a bit tipsy. We loved the culture. I really wish I remembered the man's name. He was phenomenal. Made Italy feel like a dream. Thank you!

This tour was fantastic and we had an amazing guide. What can I say? this tour is perfect for those new to Venezia and looking for a bit of history, highlights, tips on what to see, do and eat. Thank you Denise for sharing with us. Love from Norway.

This was a great introduction and tour of Venice with local guide Denise. Her passion brought the city and history to life. Having traveled a lot and done many tours this was definitely one of the the best and most fun.

We loved it, the guide speaking French very well, and the sun was out. The group was a bit large, we wasted a little time at each stop and the guide was unable to answer all of our questions.

Very interesting morning tour to discover Venice in a different light, with the help of a passionate and exciting guide. Thank you !
