Lucia was such a great guide, she told us a lot of stories around Venice hidden spots and gave us a lot of ideas on where to eat and hang around during the day. We followed all of her ideas and it was well worth it!

Lucia our guide was charming, interesting and generous with her information and her time. She shared the inner workings of this fabulous city and was sensitive to our interests. She guided us with intelligence, enthusiasm and love. Can't recommend her highly enough.

Great tour from a local with local knowledge. I have been to Venice before so didn't want to see all the usual sights and this was perfect for that. Andrea gave us an insiders guide to Venice and it was worth the walk!
