Mattia was great! It was as if our favourite nephew took us on an extensive, 6-hour-tour of the city where he lives and studies: Very personal, friendly and relaxed. The weather was terrible, it rained hard and was very windy. No Venetian would even leave the house in this weather, but Mattia kept going, showing us hidden treasures and even took us to the rooftop terrace of the house where he lives! At our request, we stopped twice in typical local bacari for a drink and a bite to eat, and he suggested fantastic places for that. It is just worth pointing out that this isn't a tour with an official local tourist guide. We didn't mind as it gave us a very personal experience, but I think it should be pointed out in the description of the tour.
This tour was awesome! The meeting point is easy to find, the guide was punctual and very informative. (Can't remember her name, she was the lady that speaks 4 languages including Italian, French, and English.) I don't normally like guided tours, I prefer doing my own thing, but I wanted to do this, to have a basic understanding on Venice itself as well as on the Venetian culture. This was the perfect experience for me, especially since our group was very small (7 of us all together). You have the option NOT TO take the boat ride back as well - which exactly what my choice was, since my hotel was right by St. Mark's.
A great tour for those of you who want to get some interesting historical background about Venice while eating and drinking. What a great combination. We enjoyed it very much, our guide Alice was absolutely amazing, we could continue the entire day with her. She was fun, super knowledgeable and the places she took us to were delicious. Come hungry! The quantity of food was insane.
Alles hat super geklappt!! Schnelle, unkomplizierte Reservierung und Preis Leistung echt top !! Der Ausflug ist so wie beschrieben und das was wir wollten unsere Begleiterin und der Kapitän sympathisch und freundlich! Echt zu empfehlen
The trip is well organized and the guide is telling a lot about the history etc and makes it all an animated trip. There is enough time to explore the islands and all together it’s very pleasant.
