    Our guide Carolina was very friendly and knew a lot about the history of venice. She showed us the most important places and introduced us to their story, so very good to start your venice trip. She also speaks the venician dialect and is using it to explain many historical names. On the tour she also recommended some churches to visit and have a closer look at them. She also gave restaurant tipps. It was a really nice tour.

    Our guide Denise was over-punctual and welcomed us nicely. The tour was very entertaining and interesting. We got a very good first impression of Venice, as well as useful tips and information about people in the city, the history and locations that you should definitely see. On the way, Denise always had an open ear for questions or just small talk. And Denise took her time and didn't strictly watch the clock, so it was a pleasant walk without rushing. Highly recommended for those who are in Venice for the first time to find their way around.

    Our very friendly guide Denise was waiting for us on time at the meeting point. After a brief introduction, she explained the general structure of the city to us and then guided us through the main parts of the city. Since she was born in Venice and has lived there all her life, she can tell us about numerous changes in the city. The historical and political background is probably not explained in detail, but Denise gives us a vivid introduction to the city's recent history and also lets us participate in its private history. Conclusion: Overall, the tour is very entertaining, gives a good first feeling for the city and provides great tips to gain your own nice experiences (culinary as well as Venetian nightlife culture) in the city outside of the mainstream!
