A Recent Review of this tour

We absolutely loved Francesca! Our teen boys even appreciated all the information she shared with us and actually commented on how they preferred the back alleys she took us through vs. the major pedestrian areas. They learned little tidbits about Venice, we saw the "major" sites, and she was flexible with us with respect to what we wanted to see, and when we wanted/needed to stop for snacks and such. Can't recommend Francesca enough!
