Excellent tour. Our guide was really fun and involved the whole group. Her knowledge of the area was second to none and we learned more on this tour than any of the other tours we’ve done in Venice. Not terribly spooky but enough to make you wonder!! Loved it!

The stories of Venice history and how adults enjoyed going out incognito/promiscuous behaviors. Our guide was fun, upbeat, and was able to keep the attention of all ages.

Our guide enjoyed her work but the tour was basically a walk around quieter areas of Venice and a few ghost stories. Not something I could recommend really.

Finally called a few minutes after scheduled time to find out tour company had no record of our booking, they stated Viator never sent it to them. Not the first time we’ve had problems with Viator. I would advise not using them.
