Frederika was a wonderful tour guide. She had great information, interesting stories, and even added humor into her tour. The gondola ride at the end was simply amazing. I was afraid it would only be for 5 or 10 minutes, but the ride lasted half an hour! This tour was great to kick off our Venice experience. I would recommend it to anyone new to this unique and beautiful city.
