Sergio our guide was really interesting and entertaining throughout the tour. We learnt a lot about the history of Venice and went down some secret streets we may not have found on our own. Highly recommend.

Denise was great. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Would highly recommend her to anyone. She was very conversant and answered all our questions. Wish the tour had lasted longer.

Though the guide, Catalina I believe, was great, the tour was just okay. First, Venice is a complicated city to navigate, so leave yourself plenty of time to find the destination. The tour itself was just a walk through the street, with some landmarks but mostly normal things

Loved this simple 2 hour tour but totally enhanced by having Sergio as our guide ... he was just fabulous and clearly loved his home city. We saw Venice from slightly off the main streets ... worth 2 hours if you have the time.
