We quite enjoyed the tour with Minu. She is very knowledgable and we learned a lot about the history of Venice. Minu was also very helpful and accommodating in making sure we found our correct bus to get back to our cruise ship. We would recommend taking a tour with Minu.

This is a deliberately neutral review. I don't think we clicked but we got to see what we paid for but the tour guide was boring. Too much superfluous detail.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Irvine, I do see your point of view and I think I can understand it my purpose was only to serve you at the best I could, APOLOGIES I admire your passion and I will always have a good memory of the morning I spent with you and your friend My best regards and my apologies minu

Minu's knowledge of the Basilica and the Doge's Palace is nothing short of encyclopedic! She makes the tour both fun and interesting with her exquisite descriptions. The fact that she gets to "skip the line" is not to be discounted either as you could spend most of the day standing in line just to see these two attractions. The trip across the "Bridge of Sighs" and the jail tour were also excellent. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for an in depth experience and not wanting to wait in line

Minu was great. Our group of 6, included teens and adults and we all enjoyed her stories and knowledge. We especially appreciated how much she was able to squeeze into the time we had with her - she paced it perfectly! Highly recommend her.

Minu took excellent care of us. She was most flexible and shared her love and extensive knowledge of Venice. My husband is using a cane and she was very solicitous of him. She waited in the rain with us until our bus came. We highly recommend her.

Our guide Minu was very knowledgeable, with great enthusiasm for her subject (San Marco, Doge's Palace and Venice in general), and was thoughtful and considerate of the three of us.

Minu provided us with a fantastic tour of Murano & Burano. Her long history in Venice and historical knowledge are of great value for a visitor. I would recommend her to anyone. She was even responsible for our favorite restaurants, guiding us to a wonderful place for lunch in Murano. Thank You Minu, for a great tour!

Minu was very knowledgeable about the palace and Basilica, and gave us some good overall history of Venice. Her style of guiding includes asking some questions and for volunteers to play a role, which may be helpful to engage children. Her English vocabulary was good, but her accent was sometimes difficult to understand through the "whisper" devices we had to use.

Minu was extremely knowledgeable. She gave us an excellent overview of the city and its history. There were some snafus caused by local events but she rolled with the punches, moved things around and extended the tour a bit to ensure we covered the itinerary. Seeing the city both by foot and via water taxi allowed us to cover a lot of ground. Would highly recommend the itinerary and Minu to anyone visiting Venice.

We had a great time with Minu. She was very knowledgeable and explained things well enough for the kids to understand. She had a great sense of humor as well and very easy going. We had changed some things from our original plans, but she accommodated us and made adjustments. Whenever we do go back we will definitely be contacting her again.

Minu was our guide for our short time 2 1/2 hours in Venice to be exact. That was the time between when our ship docked and we had to head to the airport. She was a wealth of knowledge and made sure we got to enjoy all of the highlights of Venice. I would love to have her again on our travels!

Minu was great - she was very informative and was not in a rush to get us place to place, she was very casual and willing to go off the grid when we wanted to. She also took us to a glass blowing presentation and a mask shop too. She recommended the most amazing place for lunch where I have had my favourite Italian tagliatelle bolognese to date!!! Minu, if you can recall the name and post it here.....you dropped us off there personally and waited outside the restaurant with us until they opened...yum!
