    Our ghost tour was led by the wonderful Sara. Sara was knowledgeable and engaging as well as helpful, generous, considerate and gracious. She is the best kind of tour guide. The tour was interesting and the stories varied and exactly what I was after. I will admit that I'd seen other tours that featured vampires and I was hoping one vampire legend would crop up but that's no worries. If you know where San Marco square is, the meeting point is easy to find. However I didn't and got lost finding the group. I tried to get in touch with their offfice multiple times but struggled. This would be my only negative. However, get your guide were helpful and the group allowed me onto the tour the subsequent night which was really appreciated as Venice is a rabbit warren and easy to get lost in! I really recommend this tour and I wish the lovely Sara all the best!

    This tour was so wonderful!! Alicia was a lovely guide, very personable, very interesting stories and legends, she brought the history of Venice to life and made you feel as though you were an ‘insider’ by the end, knowing so many legends, superstitions, and stories of Venice! The rest of our touring has been extra interesting now after learning the stories from this Ghost tour! Highly recommend this tour, especially with Alicia as your guide!!

    Our guide was really very friendly and open-minded. And a real Venetian! The legends of the city were told in a really impressive way in a small group in the right place, so that you could get a new feeling for the city. She had also made a great effort to involve the participants with poor English skills in her language (French). At the end all questions were answered. We were also able to get a restaurant recommendation and let our last evening end deliciously. Thanks very much!
