Our guide, Massimo, was simply wonderful: prompt, personable, knowledgeable and flexible, adapting to what we had already visited and leading us to interesting parts of Venice, that we would never have found on our own. Full marks for him.

A great tour which was quickly altered to suit our group and the previous experiences we have had in Venice (as I think our guide thought it was our first time). Lots of photo opportunities and I even managed to sneak into a shop and buy a handbag! A lovely tour, taken at our own pace with lots of information and interesting facts.

We really enjoyed this tour. The tour guide knew where everyone goes to shop and eat. The guide did seem a little puzzled at first when he read our voucher. Kind of like he didn't know what he was supposed to show us. A little disappointed that we didn't go into any of the churches listed. We just saw the outside of them. Seeing the fish and food market was great. Definitely worth doing.
