Our guide was fabulous! Frederico was knowledgeable of Venice history, where people go to have fun, eat and drink and he had a great sense of humor. We enjoyed being on his tour.
About halfway through the tour, he had to pick up another group of people whose tour guide didn't show up and he managed it without a problem. I would prefer a smaller group, but we had no trouble hearing him. He chose good location for us to stop where he could explain things to us.
Frederico deserves very high praise for his professional, yet relaxed and informative delivery. I wish more tour guides were like him!
You can't go wrong with this one.

We had a fabulous tour with our excellent guide Shannon. We had a small group (only 10) and the tour took us to interesting places away from the main tourist sites that we wouldn't otherwise have seen.
Highly recommended.

Our guide Federico (if I spelled that correctly) was very informative, fun and patient (waiting for the stragglers so they wouldn't get lost on those twists & turns). We learned a lot about Venice, how and when it was formed, how buildings were built and maintained. Gave us invaluable about avoiding tourist traps for food & souvenirs.

Would recommend this to anyone wishing to learn about the history of Venice and all the various roads and paths in the city. All the cruise ships arrive and over load plaza San Marco. This is a great way to avoid crowds and see the city. We used Simona and she was really knowledgable. Great guide.

We had a very nice tour with Federico on our first evening in Venice. We really liked seeing some of the areas that were off the beaten track. He did a great job of giving us some history of the sites we saw, and his tips at the end of the tour served us well throughout our stay in Venice.

If you like to walk, and want to see more of Venice than St Marks and the Grand Canal, this is the tour for you.
