Context Travel in Venice was organized, prompt, helpful, and that's just the booking experience! The guides were fantastic. We liked Matteo so much we booked another tour for the next day with him. He was an archaeologist by training so his knowledge of Venice was extensive and he easily adapted his tour to suit our interests. We took the Daily Life in Renaissance Venice through the San Polo area which were unfamiliar with and Matteo gave us a glimpse into real daily life in Venice that we would never have had otherwise. Tamara was our guide for the Rialto Market Tour and we loved her. She was fun, funny, knowledgable and seemed to know just about everyone. It was like having a friend taking us for a private tour rather than a guide. We loved it.
I suggest booking a private tour if possible so you can see what you want and not get bogged down by others with different agendas or abilities. We are both fit and wanted to move along and see as much as possible. Both our guides were fine with this style.
Both our Context guides spoke very good English which you think would be a requirement for a guide, but our experience later in Bologna proved this was not necessarily the case. Our guide there (not with Context) was useless.
