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.

The tour was very informative and our guide, Margherita, was knowledgeable and very engaging. She was also quite good with kids, who were very attentive throughout. Overall, our experience was wonderful and I’d recommend this tour without hesitation!
