Client feedback

 

The tour to Murano and Burano was exactly what we wanted. Just lovely! I can go on for hours about our wonderful guide. She was so informative and really gave us the flavor of the country. Thank you again for this great tour and be sure and tell our guide how much we enjoyed her...I am sorry to say that I can't remember her name. Tell her that we wish her the best for her twins and hope she stays healthy. God Bless.
