The tour guide was amazing, so informative and passionate, I unfortunately cannot remember his name, but we taken around lots of little streets around Venice and told all the history of the various places, as well as going to some of the main tourist locations as well. This is a must if you are heading to Venice!

This was a great tour! It was great to learn about other sections of Venice. Natasha was a wonderful guide. She had a wealth of knowledge about the history of Venice and it’s people. We used three of her restaurant recommendations and they were all excellent! Her iPad photos helped to explain some of the history and were a nice addition. I highly recommend this tour!

This was a wonderful tour. We spent two weeks in Italy and Greece and Nico (our tour guide) was a highlight of our time there. He was charming, funny and extremely knowledgeable. We were engaged throughout and we loved hearing about his childhood growing up in Venice too. Nico was terrific at having some fun where he would show us something and then ask us what we thought it was or meant. This was awesome and my teens really loved that too. We didn’t always have it right, but it was fun guessing. The tour itself did not disappoint. We chose it because it went to quieter and more secluded areas of the city. Wonderful stories to go with different households and buildings. The highlight being the Jewish ghetto. This was very moving and quite informative. I highly recommend this tour and the city of Venice. We found the people to be extremely friendly. Nico even recommended a place for a bite to eat which was great. Thank you Nico! I will never forget the idea of you running down those little streets to your school. Book this tour! Hope you get Nico!

Hidden Gems a Venetian Highlight

Natasha our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. A lifelong Venetian, she is passionate about the city's rich history. The pace was perfect, and her iPad photos added context. She also gave us fabulous dinner recommendations. My twin 21 year old daughters and their friend agreed, that this tour was definitely a highlight of our stop in Venice.

Andrea is so well educated and knowledgeable about all things Venice, but also so worldly and educational as he connected concepts and stories to current events and relatable topics. He read our group so accurately. One of our group wasn’t able to walk quickly, and Andrea adjusted his walking speed to our slowest member. His conversational style was engaging, friendly, cheerful, and made our experience fun. He was happy to answer questions and accept banter, without letting it get him off track of the tour. We would gladly recommend this tour to others, as it was recommended to us by friends as well. Thank you!

Our guide, born and bred in Venice and married to a gondolier, was absolutely brilliant . What Guilia does not know about was has happened in Venice in the past, just isn’t worth bothering with ………all twinned with an excellent sense of humour . Thank you Guilia you shared so much knowledge with us all

This was such a neat way to experience Venice. I had been to Venice several times before, but I had never been to some of these out of the way areas. Giovanni was incredibly knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor, and put up with our tired group very well. At the end of the tour he gave us a map with restaurant and shopping recommendations which was invaluable! This tour started our vacation off perfectly!
