Historically, the first free tour in Venice. With the best guides with open hearts who are willing to show you the real city and give you great tips about where to go and what to see. It's probably the best welcoming tour in the city.

Let me start by saying that this tour waste of time. Not because it was free. I have been on many free tours previously. Actually visited one in Copenhagen in Denmark the day before where I tipped generously, but for this one I felt that...More

Our guide was well-intended, but not really sufficiently knowledgeable; also, we were taken out on to Piazza San Marco on a Sunday afternoon where there were 1,000’s of tourists; would have been far more interesting and less chaotic to visit some of the lesser-known corners...More
