    Beautiful experience! Our guide Valentina accompanied us with professionalism and kindness through an unknown Venice for those arriving in this beautiful city for the first time. The tour, which lasts a couple of hours, takes place on foot, but you don't notice the road taken at all, time flies immersed in a bygone era, helped by Valentina's great preparation, ready to satisfy every curiosity. I recommend it to everybody. The only comment I can make is the fact of having to repeat the story in two languages (Italian-English, in case there are foreign tourists, but I think this is normal in Venice), which in my opinion takes up time for any insights, it would be nice if they could create a group of only Italian tourists.

    Very interesting tour, with an itinerary full of ideas to get to know Venice, beyond the traditional places of tourist interest. Our guide, Francesco, was very good, helpful and thorough. The tour is in English and Italian. I would have appreciated the possibility of using an audio guide to be able to listen to our guide even in a crowd or when you move away a little. Francesco was also very attentive to this: he always waited to have all the members of the group close before starting to speak.

    It is an experience to do. We go to Venice a little more hidden from the general public and, in any case, even the most common and well-known things are explained in depth and in detail. The guide Francesco was excellent; professional, helpful and ironic at the right point so as to keep the group brilliantly until the end of the tour, which lasts two hours. It's money well spent and I highly recommend doing it.
