A Recent Review of this tour

She was an amazing tour guide .We would highly recommend her! We had a diverse group (Elderly,disabled,young child and 2 adults) She was able to accommodate and educate us with ease on the wonders of Venice. She went above and beyond by suggesting other sights and activities for us to do. Given her vast knowledge of the history of Venice she never let us feel intimidated with our questions big or small.
