We loved it, the guide speaking French very well, and the sun was out. The group was a bit large, we wasted a little time at each stop and the guide was unable to answer all of our questions.

A very interesting guide who was able to answer all our questions ... A pity that this guided tour only lasts an hour and a half. I recommend before going to visit Venice alone!

Excellent, all organized in detail! Two itineraries, two different guides, all well organized. The guide, Ms Franca, good and nice !!!

Very interesting morning tour to discover Venice in a different light, with the help of a passionate and exciting guide. Thank you !

Elisabeth made the city tour very informative and entertaining. Highly recommended!
