Extremely informative guide and a lovely person.
Susan is probably the most expert guide we have had in our many years of traveling. She had a remarkable depth of information about virtually anything we asked her having to do with Venetian art, architecture, history and related topics. The tour was perfect for our interests, her adaptations were spot on and despite the acqua alta and rain, we had a marvelous tour in every way. Although I myself am a guide in a museum in Boston, I have no suggestions for how this tour could be improved - absolutely perfect as is.
Sara was magnificent! What a treat to have a woman with her art knowledge explain the wonders of San Marco basilica. The walk to the Rialto, with its history and notable places pointed out, was memorable as well. Context has engaging and educated guides. We will seek out Context wherever we travel!
