This was great!! Erica was very knowledgeable and did a great job engaging my 10yo who the day before had been for ed to go on a very boring tour for adults. What I actually lived about this tour — and therefore would recom it to adults too — is that she focused on smaller details. Each one told a bigger story and in the end they all come together to give you a broad sketch of what Venetian culture — not just history — is about. I spent the whole rest of the day telling my daughter “Wow I’m SO GLAD we went on that tour!! It was perfect!” Def provided a model for the kind of tour we will look for in the future when visiting other places!

We booked this tour for our only full day in Venice and Im so glad we did! It was absolutely worth every single penny. Federica was beyond amazing and kept our boys 8 and 10 years old engaged and excited the entire time. It was wonderful to walk around with someone who not only knew the area, but clearly loved it and was full of interesting information about things we probably wouldnt have noticed. We did the tour in the late morning and it was the perfect introduction to the rest of our day as she offered tips on where to go first and where to eat for lunch and dinner. We followed her suggestions and our day in Venice was one of the best ones in our whole Italy trip. We fell in love with the beauty and charm of Venice and I know its because we knew some of the background, thanks to Federica. If Im venice again, I would book this tour in a heartbeat. If you are considering booking this tour and you have children, you will not regret it! We all really enjoyed it! Thank you Federica!

Federica was great! We travelled with a 5 year old and an 8 year old and this was perfect for them. We were a bit doubtful about the attention span of our kids but her quiz and prizes kept them entertained and the adults learned lots too - taking us to places in Venice we would never have come across. Federica took us to places that were away from the tourists and shaded from the hot summer sun. There was just us and one other family who had a 7 year old and a 12 year old and they were happy too! Thanks Federica! Meet her in the square in front of the church on the instructions.

This tour was great. Our guide I'm sorry I've forgotten her name did a wonderful job of keeping both parents and children engaged and entertained. It's fun to walk around Venice on your own, but there are a lot of details and local history that you only get if you take a tour. Recommended.

Fredericka was our tour guide and the kids our boys 9 and 11 really liked her. We also enjoyed meeting another family on this tour as it was a good diversion to have another child in the mix. We learnt interesting facts about Venice and loved our gelato stop. Fredericka was great at pointing out local places to eat and the kids liked all their prizes they won on the way. It didn't have quite as much historical content as I expected however it certainly kept the kids moving and entertained.

The tour guide was very friendly and great with the kids. We mostly followed he from place to place and she did to say much about any of the places we visited unless we asked specific questions. she gave the kids a sheet to fill with points for finding certain landmarks, which was very cute. The kids enjoyed that. She gave a few prized the got them very exited. The tour was not very informative, but the kids had a nice time.

A heartfelt Grazie to Veronica, the very knowledgeable and personable tour guide! She really connected with the children who ranged from 6 to 13, and made sure to include everyone, in particular the more reserved kids. Veronica guided the group to a fruit and vegetable market, a fish market, we walked and walked through Venice, all the while she explained about the history of Venice or, for example, how to figure out in which quarter of Venice you are hint: it's on written the lamps.... We went to visit a bookstore for a great photo opportunity where the kids climbed on a ten foot high book chair. That was cool. She explained about the usage of masks, where the tradition comes from, for example, the so-called doctor's mask. We also stopped for Gelato grown-ups got one too :. All-in-all an excellent experience for kids and their grown-ups. It's a lot of walking though, so just be prepared ad make sure to wear comfortable shoes and remember your sunblock :. The tour was closer to three hours rather than the 2.5 hours advertised. So flexibility is key. The meeting place is in front of a church near the Rialto bridge.We were lost but our tour guide found us, asking if we were looking for the tour. Suggest to be there a little bit ahead of time, if you're not familiar with the area. Well done, Veronica. Thank you!!!!
