Both the tour guide and the content of the tour were excellent. We now better understand the challenges to Venice's survival in future - something you don't learn from guidebooks. There is nothing I would suggest to improve the tour.
Very interesting tour and Luca was very knowledgeable and friendly. Really loved the tour and learning about Venice from a different perspective then the normal churches, art, etc.
This is the second tour we booked on this trip where we had difficulty locating the guide. GPS doesn't work well in Venice, and it's extremely crowded. We started our tour about 30 minutes late, which I think threw Luca off a bit because he had to reroute the entire tour. But nonetheless, he did an excellent job & by the end, we didn't feel as if we had missed anything.
