This was the second tour we took with Francesca and will not be the last. She is a great tour guide who really loves Venice. She showed us sights we had been looking for over several past visits. We were well off the beaten path and were amazed by what Francesca showed us. I would recommend this tour and Francesca to every visitor to Venice.
