I thought three hours on our first two mornings in Venice would be more than enough time, but Helene had so much to share, and was so able to tailor the tours to appeal to everyone from our 9 year old to my mother-in-law, that I soon realized six hours would barely scratch the surface!
Helene is a total expert, and anything you're curious about will be explained. Her tour of the Basilica was the best I've ever had!
My mother-in-law got a bit of a chill (it was raining and just 50F), and Helene, a native Venetian, said, 'Oh, let's pop in here, this is a nice cafe.' It was cozy and warm, and in the salon, she shared some of the fundamentals and foundations (literally) of Venice.
The next day, she took us on a specially crafted Vivaldi and Tiepolo expedition, sharing so much information along the way that we had trouble following up on everything she suggested over the ensuing five days on our own.
It was a truly memorable experience. I can't recommend Helene enough.
