Lucia was an excellent tour guide, enthusiastic, interesting and very engaging. Her tour of the Dorsdoduro focused on quirky facts, history and rumour. It was exactly what we were looking for having completed a more historical Venice tour earlier in the holiday.

Great tour which takes you to the non-touristic and authentic parts of venice where you can enjoy the beauty of the city and learn about so many interesting things at the same time.

I recommend a tour with Lucia to everyone!
