As I said before, very well done!

The tour guides for Doge’s Palace and St Marks square and basilica were extremely knowledgeable and interesting. We also got to see most of the famous areas of Venice. We were disappointed in the one hour boat tour, as the tour guide did not interact well with the group and seemed bored.

The tour of the palace was thorough but the tour of the cathedral was limited. The boat tour was excellent

I was unaware of the importance of Venice through the middle age. The guides knew their history well, from the establishment of the city to the Doges, to Marco Polo, to it's conquest by Napoleon.

Fascinating to see and learn about!

Too much talk about artistic details

About a month ago we visited Venice for our first time, and we were lucky to have Barbara take us on the Original Venice Walk. Barbara delighted in sharing with us her love of the city and helped acquaint us with the San Marco and Castello districts, so that we could feel emboldened to explore on our own. She took wonderful care of our group the whole time (especially when it came to finding shady patches to congregate and find escape from the midday sun!). Stefano was similarly wonderful and knowledgeable as he shepherded us from room to room within the Doge's Palace. He demonstrated a gift to make historical lessons--both about Venice's past and the Palace itself--memorable and meaningful. Grazie mille to Barbara and Stefano!

As previously stated... our tours were outstanding!

The tour guides spoke good English and were very knowledgeable. You will never understand the history or be able to appreciate all that you see just standing and looking at these amazing places. Taking the tours opened up the history and really amazing facts. Venice is so unique of a city and the history is unbelievable. We did Doge's Palace, St. Mark's Basilica and the canal boat tour. Loved all of them.

I have used your services before and was impressed then. This time however we found that the group which was only supposed to be 10 was in fact 18-20 and our Grand Canal tour was also overbooked and we had to wait an extra hour for another boat. However that worked out better for us as fewer people on the boat. The reception on your radios was very poor, even after changing them.

My Avventure Bellissime’s Original Venice Walking tour with Marco on March 18th was not so great after having such a fabulous tour guide in Barbra. Marco did not show us much of St. Mark's Basilica. He only had us walk to two areas in the basilica where we remained while he talked then led us back out. We didn't even get to see the real horse statues that were housed inside the basilica that I had read about in the guide book. It felt as if he was just going through the motion and wasn't putting much effort in being our tour guide for the day. His sarcastic sense of humour also wasn't very appealing.

I rated 5 starts because this was truly a great tour. We did the canal boat tour, much better than sitting in a gondola for 30 minutes. Tour guide was very thoughtful, interesting, and knowledgeable.
