      This walking tour set us up for maximizing our time in Venice. We got to understand where things were- get our bearings. We also learned about places to visit we would have otherwise missed, and they were well worth our time on subsequent days. Our guide’s tips on local food options were much appreciated also.

      Our guide Denise is excellent! She is interesting, passionate and gives recommendation on restaurants etc. Absolutely a must do tour in Venice! You will get to know the history, cool spot to take picture of the Rialto Bridge without the tourist & a cool surprise (for you to find out). Would recommend to do it the beginning of your trip which will help with navigating in Venice.

      Our guide Carolina was very friendly and knew a lot about the history of venice. She showed us the most important places and introduced us to their story, so very good to start your venice trip. She also speaks the venician dialect and is using it to explain many historical names. On the tour she also recommended some churches to visit and have a closer look at them. She also gave restaurant tipps. It was a really nice tour.
