“Very informative.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

The walking tour was fun. I learned a lot from the tour guide. Simone was very knowledgeable. Better than walking around with a tour book.

“Free but tips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

The tour was ok I think. She told stories about the sites we walked around. My impression was that her stories was more to entertain audiences, for example, masks and sex, legendary stories than to educate audience in history.

Also, She said it is free tour but also said clearly "we work on tips." I felt obligated to pay her tip like to waitress in a restaurant."

Hello Joseph,
thank you for your comment and we apologise for late reply. When you have joined our tour, we were just at the beginning and your constructive criticism have helped us to improve some aspects. Please kindly note that all our guides are professional tour leaders, and probably asking some specific questions about history (which we encourage) would have been useful for a higher rating that you gave to our tour. Please kindly note that nobody have ever been obliged neither asked to pay for the tour.

“Thoroughly enjoyed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

a group of five of us were approach outside the station and we thoroughly enjoyed this tour. i'd recommend anyone to do it as it wasn't touristy and was a lot more intimate than other tours as there was a smaller group. the tour also gave information i wouldn't have learnt with another tour and we were taken places i probably wouldn't have walked around myself. 5 stars!

“walking Venice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

We had a lady for our tour which was very nice she made sure everyone was able to hear what she was saying, and didnt run from place to place but walked at a good pace. She was helpful in giving directions and was able to answer questions about things that werent on the tour.
