Giovanni was an excellent tour guide. He took us around all the little nooks and crannies of Venice, sharing interesting historical facts; legends about gruesome murders, suicides and public executions at the behest of the Doge. In addition to the ghosts and legends, he recommended some wonderful eateries and quiet, more authentically Venetian places to go to escape the crowds and get a proper taste of what makes Venice so special. My favourite part was the theatre with the missing statues of the two lovers - it was charming and intriguing! An excellent tour guide- but be warned, it’s not exaggerating when it tells you to bring sensible shoes. Even with practical footwear my legs were killing me! Thoroughly enjoyable and definitely worth every penny!
A really interesting tour with unexpected stories and interesting facts and knowledge that you wouldn't have found otherwise. Our tour guide was Julia - she was really friendly, lovely and great at keeping the group together, telling stories and looking after everyone. She spoke really well and you could always hear her even in busier areas. It was nice to see small corners and hear the mysteries surrounding the city - something that's new from the facts you find in tour books! Great tour thank you!
Great tour to popular as well as less frequented areas in Venice along with interesting background stories (at bit more murder stories might be good though). Definitely gave us a better understanding of the long history of this city. Plus our guide, Anna-Maria, had an answer for every question.
Such a great experience hearing all about Venice and it’s secrets and legends! Was brilliant to step into a whole complete different side of Venice (the night time) and Julia - our guide; was fantastic! She was lovely and such a character! 100% recommend
It was a lot of fun to hear some of the lesser known facts and stories about Venice. I would suggest the tour if you want to learn some fun information. That isn’t typically covers in other tours.
