The tour started off as somewhat of a disappointment. We were informed by our guide that the city of Venice had closed down the bell tower on San Maggiore for maintenance. Seeing the view from the bell tower was one of the reasons we picked this tour, so we weren't very happy about this.
Our tour guide, however, quickly turned lemons into lemonade. She was funny, interesting, incredibly knowledgeable, and very patient with our questions. We took a very thorough tour all around the outside of Venice proper, as well as multiple smaller channels and the Grand Canal itself. We capped the tour off with a spritz in the Dorsoduro district.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience, with awesome photos and memories to cherish.
