Juancarlo was amazing! He was energetic and fun and watched out for all of us to make sure we didn’t get lost. He shared a lot of stories and things about Venice that toy probably wouldn’t hear about on a regular tour which gave more inside internet the history. The wine and tapas we amazing too. Wasn’t too much walking and he did a great job facilitating the group dynamics

We were running late but the guide rang and waited for us. We were in a group with two other couples. The guide made us feel very relaxed and engaged the group in great conversation. We went to three different bars and had really nice wines and local tapas. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Recommended!
