Francesca was a fantastic guide. She educated on us Venetian history in a fascinating way by connecting it with the food and wine elements of the tour. all 3 venues were good, different from each other and fun to be in. The small size group worked really well. We didn't do the gondola ride as it took us farther from our hotel than the last venue and we didn't need to experience it again. As a suggestion, you might lower the price a bit a make the gondola ride an option as it wasn't related to the main part of the tour. If Francesca is an example of the quality of your guides, we'll certainly use your services again. In fact, we checked to see if you had anyone in Lisbon as we'll be there for only a couple of days (Oct 30 - Nov 1). We would have purchased a similar even there if offered.

The tour was terrific. Francesca is an excellent guide with tremendous knowledge of Venezia. It was a great evening to taste some nice wines and food, experiencing the tradition Venetian style and Francesca gave us an exciting description of the history of Venice with an emphasis on the culinary and wine experience.
