A Recent Review of this tour

From what we have heard, most people do only one or two nights in Venice. Extend your stay beyond St Marks and the Doge's Palace and take this tour with Francesca. A very different side to Venice and a three hour stroll through the quieter streets with Francesca pointing out so many things of interest gave us such a fantastic insight to life in Venice. It was an incredibly enjoyable 3 hours. Highly recommended.
