This was an excellent excursion. My guide Giorgia was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and showed us many areas I may not have found by myself and gave great information about the areas and the history of them. Giorgia made the experience better than I had expected. I travel a lot and Giorgia was one of the most friendly, happy, and informative guides I’ve met. She had an excellent local knowledge of Venice and gave great recommendations of things to see and do and places to dine and shop and how to get around thr city using local transport. She made the experience a lot of fun. She had excellent language and communication skills. It was a great way to get to know Venice and best ways of getting around the beautiful city. I would highly recommend this activity. It’s a great way of finding your way around the famous sites and the off the beaten track areas that you may not know about. It was also excellent value for money. A very relaxing and enjoyable experience.

We had actually booked a German tour, but no German-speaking guide was available. That is how Lila accompanied us. She has only just started to learn German, so she brought us closer to Venice in English. It was one of her first tours and she did it very well. It was very entertaining and Lila also had one or the other culinary tip ready.

This tour was awesome! The meeting point is easy to find, the guide was punctual and very informative. (Can't remember her name, she was the lady that speaks 4 languages including Italian, French, and English.) I don't normally like guided tours, I prefer doing my own thing, but I wanted to do this, to have a basic understanding on Venice itself as well as on the Venetian culture. This was the perfect experience for me, especially since our group was very small (7 of us all together). You have the option NOT TO take the boat ride back as well - which exactly what my choice was, since my hotel was right by St. Mark's.
