I really enjoyed this walking tour. We got to see parts of Venice that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Francesca, our guide, was really good and the focus was on the cultural side of Venice with some history thrown in. We didn't feel rushed at all. The views were amazing, and the end point, though not a rooftop, was a very pleasant place to sip the glass of prosecco.

This is a wonderful and really unusual trip. Our guide was excellent, informative and a nice small group. The only feedback I would give is that they should include the Bolovo Tower. It would be a great addition and a spectacular view. Go on your own. If it’s not included. But this trip is great. Particularly the view over the Realto.

Seemed pressed for time since the rooftops were pretty far apart. Because of the distance and time, not a lot of Venice history was shared for a large part of the tour. At least 1/2 of the tour was spent in single file walking thru the city. Only when we were at a location was she able to talk. Very interesting when she did.
