A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour hosted by Francesca was fantastic! She took us into parts of Venice we didn't think existed- quiet streets, allies and canals away from the throngs of tourists. Her local knowledge illuminated the historic walls and Campos that we walked by and through bringing to light aspects of Venice that truly make it such an interesting place to visit. We had two teenagers with us and they said the tour was the best they have been on, and teens are hard to impress for 3 hours!
