Venice Traveler Comments

Shannon  thought of every detail to make this trip remarkable! I knew my first ever visit to Venice would be memorable because that’s just the way I choose to see things. But doing it with GrapeHops  and with Shannon at the helm was an experience beyond my expectations.

If ever one feels she or he deserves to treat him or herself to an awesome vacation, go with the Taste of Venice Tour by GrapeHops! You’ll be wanting for more.

We had traveled with Shannon before so I knew we would have a good time in Venice but this exceeded my expectations. She used to live there so knows the city well and she knew just where to take us for the best sights and best food. There was no such thing as a bad day with her!

Thoughtful, generous, flexible and accommodating leaders! A real insider’s view of Venice!”

This was our second trip with Shannon and as with our first trip, everything was done to ensure that it was a total success and a great experience. We and our friends had a thoroughly enjoyable time. I attribute this largely to Shannon’s flexibility in meeting individual needs, her hard work and conscientious approach and her knowledge of the areas visited.

 While we had been to Venice before, Shannon took us to places and venues that normal tourists would not know about or visit. It was a totally different experience of Venice. In addition, visiting with Shannon who has lived in the city and also previously led visitor groups, meant that the insights and comments that she was able to provide added greatly to our experience. Totally different to our previous visits! All in all, a great trip and most enjoyable.
