Minu was fabulous and so accommodating. She has great energy and a wonderful sense of humor. Venice is so beautiful and lovely to just see but her guidance widened our view and left us so much more aware of our surroundings. She gave us historical knowledge but also just local knowledge of how to get around with transportation, safety, and local custom. Our group's age ranged between 12 and 74 and everyone said it was so worth it. From land to sea. Thank you Minu. Grazie Mille
