Valentina was a wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable, engaging and easy to understand. We had a lot of fun and I feel like we learned a lot! This was probably my favorite walking tour while traveling Italy! Valentina then took us to meet up with Riccardo, the guide who led us to the Gondola ride. Born and raised in Venice, he really knew his stuff. He was an incredibly intelligent young man who answered all of our questions! He also had a wonderful sense of humor. Thank you Valentina, Riccardo and our Gondolier for a great morning!
