A perfect intro to Venice

This was a fantastic tour! Cristina was very warm and welcoming, and extremely knowledgeable about the local area and the history of Venice. I was so glad to have her as a guide, as she pointed out so many things I would never have noticed by myself, and gave us lots of recommendations for things to explore ourselves after the tour as well. A great introduction to the city. Thank you for a lovely day!
