A Recent Review of this tour

Giovanna was terrific. Her tour made the Accademia museum more interesting than I would have imagined. She provided insight and her knowledge of Venice and art was clearly demonstrated. She has great interpersonal and communications skills. Both I and my (lovely) wife were able to understand Giovanna clearly. Spending time with Giovanna helped increase our appreciation of what Venice has to offer. Thanks for a great tour.
