    We really enjoyed this tour with Nicoletta! She did a great job of balancing the most important sights (Rialto Bridge, Piazza San Marco) with some wonderful hidden gems. We learned a lot about the history and culture of Venice. For instance she told us about the local food markets near the Rialto, and took us to see boutique shops like Venetian mask makers and spice merchants. I liked that she also took us to very picturesque photo spots that we would not have been able to find on our own. Overall a terrific experience!

A really informative tour with a very capable guide.

We enjoyed having a very small party of 4 people plus the guide. Our guide was really good and achieved a good balance of information about the historical side of the area and the localities themselves. We had a really good time and thoroughly recommend it to all tourists.

Sylvia was amazing as our guide....A+!!!!

the guide spoke excellent French and her knowledge of the city and its history was impressive. Her little attentions for my pregnant daughter touched me
