A really informative tour with a very capable guide.

We enjoyed having a very small party of 4 people plus the guide. Our guide was really good and achieved a good balance of information about the historical side of the area and the localities themselves. We had a really good time and thoroughly recommend it to all tourists.

Great seeing out of the tourist area places

We saw sites in areas where the locals live and got a sense of what Venice was years ago. Our guide Iola Calabrese was terrific and we very much enjoyed her insights. in all, the tour was well worth the money.
