The tour was really great… ..! Our guide was great! Really personable, went to great lengths to look after the children and made the tour of Carlo Goldoni's house exciting and lively, not too long and not too short, just right. Then we went to a mask studio. What a wonderful place! The lady who made the masks with the children was very friendly and personable. It was an absolutely successful experience and by far the cutest and nicest tour we have experienced in Venice!
