A Recent Review of this tour

Giovanna was simply the best! "An Unforgettable Day - Venice and Murano" is the perfect description for our tour. Giovanna was enthusiastic, engaging and extremely knowledgable. She led our group at an enjoyable pace, guiding us through the use of the water bus system, exploring both the iconic attractions as well as the back streets of Venice. We took 5 yours tours in Italy, all from Fluent English tour guides and Giovanna was the most fluent. Even got a deal on Murano glass because of her connection
