Things to note
Please do note that the tour is based on donations. If you participate in the tour, the guide expects you to get a donation from you afterwards. Sadly this needs to be reminded, as some people take advantage of the generosity of the guide, and walk away without tipping. Please be kind enough to donate if you join the tour! That's really the only way we could continue doing it.
IMPORTANT, Donations based tours are only for groups smaller than 5 pax. Groups bigger than that have a minimum fixed price of 10 euros. In a city like Venice where a coffee cost 5 euros, this is still a bargain!!
It's very important that you make a reservation adding your full WhatsApp number, including prefix.
Thank you so much! And enjoy!
