Look into hidden corners

The very committed tour guide did exactly what we wanted: she showed us parts of "her Venice", if possible in the time! We saw and were excellently explained places that we would probably never have seen without Mrs. Nicoletta, but which are definitely worth visiting! As with some tours of this personal kind, the "glow in the eyes of the tour guide" showed how she loves these sides of her homeland! We have to thank her for remarkable insights, which also justifies the slightly higher price for only two participants! That the postponement of the tour by a few hours, which we requested at very short notice due to the weather forecast, worked so smoothly on site, is also positive!

Knowledgeable and thorough.

I visited Venice 3 times prior, in addition to the common sites (meeting point was St. Marco's after all) this tour introduced me to new locations. The only down side was that our group of 10 had to adjust our tight schedule as the tour ran overtime.
