Historically, the first free tour in Venice. With the best guides with open hearts who are willing to show you the real city and give you great tips about where to go and what to see. It's probably the best welcoming tour in the city.

Francesco managed to show us a part of Venice we wouldn't have known otherwise. He was funny and succeded in the task of explaining History stuff, which is normally not easy I would definitely recommend it.
