Let me just say that after this tour I have a new love of Venice!
The guide, Jonathan, painted an amazing picture of what Venice was like in the past and how it has transformed over the decades. He does this by showing video clips on his ipad, showing pictures, sharing interesting stories, and pointing out historic spots. He doesn’t mind answering questions. In fact, there was not one question that he didn’t have the answer to. Jonathan has done his research and is super knowledgeable about all things Venice. I was impressed! You can tell he is very passionate about Venice, not just what it was in the past, but what it is today.
The tour was so thorough and engaging that at the end of the tour I felt bad I only paid half price. I would have actually paid double the original price, it was worth every dollar, no lie. I’m glad I went on the tour, I learned so much. And now I have a go-to activity to do with my out-of-town visitors.
The tour offers a great view of the main and side streets of Venice, the canals, and the beach/ocean front walk area. It is a 3-hr walking tour that goes by very quickly. I’m looking forward to going on some of the other tours that Jonathan offers. I hear he even offers some special tours for the holidays like Christmas and Valentine’s Day. Great idea for a date!
