    Valentina was a knowledgeable guide. The tour was very interesting and gave us a sense of Venice and her history. The downside was that 2 of the 6 participants only spike Italian. It was supposed to be an English language tour and we spent half the time standing around while guide said same thing in Italian to that couple.

    It was a very interesting walk the very kind and good guide. It was very hot but it was still very pleasant. Maybe I would do tours dedicated to individual Italian or English groups or other. Because in the heat of waiting time it becomes difficult to wait for your turn.

    Very prepared and nice guide. The visit includes a short visit to the prisons and then takes place all through the beautiful alleys of Venice. Be aware that this type of visit is bilingual. The morning we did it there was also a Spanish couple and the start of the visit was done in 3 languages, until my girlfriend and I decided to follow her in English in order to make her leaner with two languages.
