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.
