My partner and I have never been to a place like this so it was really interesting! There’s different mirrors, tools and illusions to explore. The only negative for us was that the staff didn’t stagger people coming in, which made every room feel very busy and made you feel as though you had to rush to allow the next people to look, which I would have thought during covid times would be more so! However, the overall experience was good and a great way to have a bit of fun and kill time. The view at the top is amazing!

This was an excellent excursion. My guide Giorgia was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and showed us many areas I may not have found by myself and gave great information about the areas and the history of them. Giorgia made the experience better than I had expected. I travel a lot and Giorgia was one of the most friendly, happy, and informative guides I’ve met. She had an excellent local knowledge of Venice and gave great recommendations of things to see and do and places to dine and shop and how to get around thr city using local transport. She made the experience a lot of fun. She had excellent language and communication skills. It was a great way to get to know Venice and best ways of getting around the beautiful city. I would highly recommend this activity. It’s a great way of finding your way around the famous sites and the off the beaten track areas that you may not know about. It was also excellent value for money. A very relaxing and enjoyable experience.
I was worried about the reviews saying it was too short but I feel that we got to see all the necessary points plus some. I went with my 7 year old and she was exhausted by the end. Andrea was full of information and he spoke great english. He was very personable and easy to talk to. He even got the whole group to sing for my birthday, which made it extra special.
What an awesome experience. No time wasted standing in lines. Very knowledgeable guide who loved her job. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to visit Venice.
Mirto was excellent - he was really knowledgeable and adapted the tour as we went along to respond to our areas of interest. We had a great time and learned a lot.
Great game, led us away from toruist to more interesting but less popular things.
