A Recent Review of this tour

This is the only way to tour Venice. Nicoletta was an awesome tour guide and having her as a tour guide help us get through the lines at St. Marks square. Her knowledge of Venice was top notch. One of our favorite experiences was taking the taxi to the Murano glass factory. The private tour of the factory made us feel special. Thanks again for your personal time it our visit memorable.
