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.

She also gave restaurant tipps. It was a really nice tour.

My boyfriend and I had a great experience with our tour through Venice. We were a small group and our tour guide was amazing. She provided us with a lot of information about the history and the importance of this unique city. She even gave us insider tips on where to eat, go for a drink, took us to beautiful locations and was a great photographer as well ;-). We can highly recommend it to annyone t who is interested in finding out more about Venice in only two hours. Honestly one of our highlights!
