We had a great time with Valerio and learnt more about Venice in 2 hours than we have on any other tour. He showed us some of the hidden gems of the city and gave just many suggestions/ recommendations for our remaining days. He also came and had a drink with us after, so it was nice to hang out with a local. We would recommend going on this tour on your first day in Venice so that you better understand the ins and outs of the city.

We were lucky to have a very knowledgeable guide in Valerio. In the two hours he showed us the winding streets off the tourist track and gave us very detailed information on many different topics. We enjoyed this tour so much that we decided to spend our vacation in Venice again. Gladly also with another excursion with Valerio as a guide.

The tour fully lives up to the title - Valerio showed us corners that you would never discover on your own and also gave interesting insights into the history and life in the lagoon, including tips. Two enjoyable hours that are worthwhile, we look forward to future visits and then maybe other themed tours.
