The tour was advertised as a “small group” tour, which it was and this proved to be very successful. Our guide was lively, informative and made sure that all the group got to hear what was being said.

Had the tour with Denise, what a lovely lady. Full of enthusiasm for her city, and good at imparting knowledge to her clients, with a great venitian English accent. She also took some photos of the group.

Our guide was Denisa (i hope I spelt it right). She was interesting and engaging with a good sense of humour. We both enjoyed the little insights into Venice and it's history. We'd recommend the tour as a good way of gaining some knowledge of the city.
