Everyone in our group of 6 English language tourists (there were some German language tourists on the tour also) thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Valerio, our guide, took us around areas that areas that we would have never found on our own and he told us a lot about the history of the areas. He was very friendly and willing to answer questions and provide restaurant and gelateria recommendations If you are interested in seeing and learning more about Venice than what you see in the touristy pictures, you can’t go wrong with this tour.

Marzia was an wonderful guide with tons of stories and facts about Venezia, its residents and story. We visited the Dorsoduro neighborhood and it was worth the money (if you are interested by real resident's life). We were so lucky to be able to view the inside of an old Church closed since many years. I strongly recommend.

Our Guide, Marzia, was passionate and exciting. We visited a neighborhood that is truly tourist-free, of rare beauty. And thanks to Marzia we learned a lot not only about the places of the visit but also about all of Venice and its history. We are really delighted with this experience!
