Barbara, our guide, was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and engaging and planned a visit to Murano, Burano and Torcello which we all enjoyed. We would seek her out again when We return.

Very unique and highly recommended tour - a VIP experience visiting lovely places in a comfortable private taxi. Personally, a good balance of history, territory exploration, free time and insights into local products and habits. Suggested for all who want to "escape" from the big crowds of the city appreciating the surroundings in peace and relaxation.

Great day! Francesca was a delight. There were only four of us on the tour which allowed flexibility throughout the day. I would highly recommend this tour to others.

Barbara was a fantastic guide as we made our way exploring the islands of the Venetian lagoon. It was such a unique and enjoyable experience, that I can’t say enough good things about it. We are already planning our trip back to Torcello, a place we never would have even ventured to without this wonderful tour. Thank you again Barbara and Walks for the wonderful tour!!!
