Matteo is both dedicated and fascinating. His broad knowledge of archaeology, Venetian history and present-day life in Venice makes him an outstanding tour guide.
Our tour with Matteo was excellent. His background in archeology and experience as a guide added immensely to the tour and he was a warm and engaging guide. We enjoyed the tour very much.
Sara has the right touch with families - so engaging, knowledgeable, and interesting. She brought the topics to life for our boys (ages 11 and 13). They are still talking this evening about the part of the tour that focused on Marco Polo - so many interesting facts that we did not know (and how cool to see where he lived!). She did a great job on the basilica and provided enough detail (but not overwhelming) so that the boys could get the main facts and find it interesting. Great tour!
