Carolina is a knowledgeable and engaging guide. We were a mixed group of 16 pax, with people of various nationalities and ages, and she expertly guided us through the rich history of Venice in an enjoyable-to-understand way. I especially liked that Carolina was open to questions, as we had queries about present-day Venice as well.

Denise is such a lovely person and we spent 2 hours with her exploring Venice. The tour was a good mixture of information and history without feeling you were being overloaded with facts and details. It makes such a difference having a guide that seems to really enjoy and love their home city and Denise was a great introduction to our amazing visit - thankyou!

Carolina was our tour guide and this tour kicked off our stay in Venice. It was a GREAT idea as we got exposed to everything on day one, so we were a bit more familiar with the city and history. I would definitely recommend this to get started with your trip. Carolina had a great personality and made the tour fly by. We even ran into her after the tour had ended and she recommended places to eat for dinner.
