Nice morning walking tour through the old town of Venice. Our German tour guide Elisabeth was great. She had a very pleasant voice and could tell a lot of interesting things about history, buildings, water transport and life in Venice in general. Since we were out so early, there weren't so many tourists yet and it was peaceful to walk through the winding streets and many bridges. Highly recommended, even with teenagers ... the audio guide device was also great - heard Elisabeth's voice live (so you didn't have to walk next to her and you could always hear her voice very well)

Interesting, well prepared and pleasant 1.5 hours sightseeing

Ms. Veronika is a great tour guide with whom we enjoyed the tour very much. Their particularly good knowledge of the German language and clear speech have brought the shown places, which you often do not even discover as a tourist, to their best advantage. It was great, we liked it and we are planning a repeat.
