Relaxing journey with Catherine, passing quiet alleys far from touristy side of Venice. She also gave us wonderful advice on how to choose places to eat and the best way to explore Venice on our own. I definitely recommend this tour. Thanks Chaterine :)

My husband and I just came back from venice for our anniversary and it was our first time there. Thank god we arranged a tour with Catherine or else, we would have missed the hidden part of Venice! She was very friendly, informative and even it was raining on that day, we still had fun discovering Venice.
If u have limited time in Venice or clueless of where to go or what do to in Venice, I strongly recommend this free tour as you will cover almost the whole Venice and give u ideas of where to go. And the best part of this tour is, it totally depends on you of what you want to do! It's nice not to be ripped of in Venice as other things in Venice is very expensive! Despite that, Venice is just amazing! Hope you will have a wonderful time in Venice as we did..

This tour is definitely the best way to see Venice. Our guide, Martina, was knowledgable, fun and easy to talk to. She showed us not only the "official sites" but also the places she loves and the areas frequented by college students and locals. She answered our questions thoughtfully and helped us see the 'big picture' of Venice. Even if it's just to get your head out of the map for a couple of hours, you should include a free tour in your plans!

Thank You Catherine for an interesting, informative and thoroughly enjoyable meander around the City. We saw so many beautiful back streets which we would probably never come across had it not been for your guided tour. I would heartily recommend this tour to anybody visiting Venice, whether for the first time or just to find out more. Guide books are all well and good, but actually being shown and told at the same time brings the experience to life. We had a wonderful time and hope to return in the future.

What a great time we had. Being resident in Venice, Catherine was able to give us a different perspective on this beautiful city. She showed us the "sights" but took us around the maze of streets often not ventured into by tourists. What a delight! She encouraged us to try it on our own and get lost. That's exactly what we did and we saw some absolute gems. The two hours spent with Catherine were a great experience. Thanks Catherine!!
