After spending a couple of days in Venice three years ago, my wife and I both felt no desire to return. However our traveling companions this year had not been there, so it was on the itinerary. I booked an introductory tour with Tour Leader Venice for the evening of our arrival, and after three (and a half) hours with Igor, I had a much different impression of Venice. Igor met us at our apartment, and took us to places OTHER than San Marco, etc. We walked the back streets away from the center, and visited several really interesting places. At one mask store, we got a spontaneous demo of mask making from the proprietor/artist, and with no sales pitch! Igor is very well versed on the history of Venice, and thoroughly engaging in his presentation. After the tour, he provided us with loads of info on where to eat, where to go for the best gondoliers, and he even planned our next day for us on the islands on Murano and Burano. If you want to get the most out of a visit to Venice, I recommend a tour with Igor.
