Great tour! Very knowledgeable guide able to convey the rich history in a very nice manner. Our walk started on our request from the different starting point and we adjusted the tour with ease as the guide was very flexible and adjusted everything based on our interest and architectural/historical knowledge of Venice. I would always prefer an individual tour over a group tour due to the assumed flexibility, which entirely paid off as we enjoyed every single minute of our tour!

Esperienza più che eccellente con la nostra guida Andrea Vianello

Abbiamo fatto questo tour nel giorno di Pasqua. È stata un’esperienza davvero unica a partire da Maria Rosa, che ci ha organizzato il tour su misura, con grandissima cortesia, disponibilità e professionalità, facendo attenzione ad ogni piccolo dettaglio!! La nostra guida, Andrea Vianello, un architetto di Venezia... non potevamo sperare di meglio!! Non solo ci ha fornito informazioni dettagliate lungo tutto il percorso, ma ci ha fatto conoscere tantissime curiosità su Venezia e sulla storia dei suoi monumenti!! Encomiabile la sua disponibilità e gentilezza nel rispondere a tutte le nostre domande!! Davvero un tour e una guida da 10 e lode!! Super consigliatissimo!! Se dovessimo tornare a Venezia sicuramente sceglieremo di fare un altro tour con loro!! Complimenti per il vostro superlativo lavoro!!!
