We were lucky enough to get Miriam, a graduate student in art history, as our guide. She met us at our BnB and showed us the Mercato, the Rialto Bridge, and Basillica dei Frari. Along the way she also pointed out many hidden gems that would only be known to a local. She was concious of our physical limitations and so kind. She also showed us to a trattoria where we had a wonderful lunch. Miriam gave us a warm and wonderful introduction to Venice.

Our guide was so helpful. We were about 10 minutes late getting to our meeting spot due to delays in public transportation but she contacted us and waited for us. Rana took us to so many interesting places and we had a great introduction to Venice. She texted us recommended places to eat and provided help with navigating the city. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Our guide Paolo was excellent. He arrived on time and created a walking tour that exceeded my and my partner's expectations. We asked Paolo to show us around Venice like a local and to explore the quieter side of the city away from the tourists. He gave us so much information and invaluable context about life in Venice, culture, and customs and also gave us great recommendations on places things to eat and restaurants to visit.
