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!

Great Venice, with Andrea

Andrea, Venetian, knows every inch of her city. And it is super fun to chat and walk learning with him, the curious traditions and architecture of Venice. Surely we come back. Thanks for joining us.
