Fun, educational walking tour
Denise was an amazing tour guide. As a native Venetian, she taught us about the past and present Venice. She even gave us recommendations for what to do after the walking tour.

Highly recommend tour to get an intro into Venice
Great experience, worthwhile doing.
Sure you can walk through Venice on your own, bit you'd miss out on all the cool background info on this unique city
Denise was great and enthusiastic telling us about her home town, and the two hours just passed in a breeze.
An experience at reasonable cost not to be missed.

Venice by foot tour
Our guide, Denise, was energetic and informative and VERY gracious since we were late because we missed our meeting place and caught up at the first stop. She did a wonderful job explaining about the nuances of Venice, the history both past and current. She interacted with the group and made great personal connections. Thank you Denise!

Well worth it
Great guide (Carol).
The Tour leads to the main attractions of course, but starts at some lesser known spots, where you learn something about the history. On top you get some tips for your own exploration. That makes this tour the ideal start for your trip to venice.
