Private Tour - Venice
Sep. 2019 • Friends
Our guide (Francesca) was delightful. So knowledgeable! She customized our tour to be just what we wanted. It was so fun to have her to ourselves (only four of us).

Not what I expected
Based on other tours we have done, this was not very good. Our guide was not the friendliest person and often complained about rude tourists. We got the private tour because my mom can only walk very slow, but the guide kept getting ahead of us and seemed irritated we weren’t keeping up. We got the feeling that she gets kickbacks from the shops she brings us to if we buy something. She spent quite awhile talking about glass making and brought us to a shop that seemed a bit out of the way and we had zero interest in glass. The same with respect to a mask shop. We did ask her about the significance of time masks, but we didn’t need to go out of our way to visit a shop. She talked many many times about the additions to the tops of buildings but it was quite repetitive. The trip seemed to lack historical facts that you usually get on tours like these. I would not recommend this tour.

We were lucky!
We were fortunate to have Barbara as a guide. She was a fabulous guide who spoke great English and really knew her city. She took us among the back streets of Venice telling us of its history. She ended the tour at a great restaurant where we grabbed lunch. It was clear to us that Barbara really loves Venice and was proud and pleased to share it with us. Great tour!

Worth it for lazy travelers who don’t want to plan, but probably better to DIY if you are self-motivated
It’s possible to visit the islands on our own via the public water bus, but this tour makes it idiot proof. In exc

Good and affordable way to spend half of your day around Venice. Out of the three islands, Burano was our favorite.
