Everything was great. Interesting talks, engaging conversation, trying to tailor the topics to what we were interested in. The only thing I would improve is a better canopy on the boat so we could be a bit more sheltered from the sun but that’s a minor issue.
This tour was top notch. Gianmarco was very well informed of the ecological features and challenges of the laguna. A very unique perspective of Venice for us and also our children. Pier the boat driver also deserves some praise. All in all, an excellent tour - just what we expect from Context.
When our tour timing and location was affected by a huge, annual, boat race in Venice, Context staff reached out to let us know this could be an issue. Further, our guide, Luca and his boat driver, were extremely flexible in adjusting our itinerary to accommodate all of the sights of interest. This tour was one of our most memorable days in Venice. Luca was very knowledgeable and informative. He provided us with insights into the beauty and challenges of the Venice lagoon well beyond a normal tourist experience. Very well done!
