I truly enjoyed three different tours during our three days stay in Venice. They made the excursions fun and meaningful. It is delightful to have an expert guide you. Each guide was excellent. Booking system was easy, we could easily change also our reservation. I would highly recommend this company.
We went on three tours. Doge’s Palace, Walking tour and Gondola Ride. Our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We learn so much and experienced a truly excellent adventure.
A group of friends and I did the islands tour with Elena! It was fantastic and informative! We saw things we have never seen before. Elena was knowledgeable and a lot of fun. The company was great too in organizing the event for us. Highly recommend!
