We spent 3 hours with Andrea and it seemed like barely 20 minutes. The time flew by as we learned about the architecture of the buildings, how the city was built, the secrets of some very obscure art treasures and a great walk through this amazing city. Thank you Walter and Andrea. You gave us one wonderful day.

I had the luck to come accross Walter Fano after my company asked me to organise "something surprising and fun" for a gorup of managers who did not wish a classical cultural visit. Where to start? Well, Walter helped me organise a dress-up event in a famous Atelier and a photo shooting to go with it, both in the Atelier... More

An interesting and fun walk with Walter on an out of the ordinary itinerary of Venice through secretive Calle e Campielli (streets and squares) accompanied by beautiful and excellent actresses, in ornate Venetian costumes, who enthralled us with their theatrical representations of Libertine Venice .... a trip back to the past worth all of it!

This was a fun and informative tour of the Palazzo Ducale and St. Marks. Andrea, my guide, was fantastic and knowledgeable about the history of Venice. He was also great to talk to. We went into the palace and saw the main attractions and also crossed the Bridge of Sighs. I'm glad I took this tour because it helped me... More

Walter is the most wonderful guide. fantastic. Energetic, friendly, and very informative. I would highly recommend L'Altra Venezia for anyone touring Venice. It is a very crowded city, and streets are narrow and difficult to find your way if you aren't familiar with it. A tour with Walter shows you all of Venice, explains what you are seeing, the history... More

I attended the Theatrical Itinerary where Walter made an intelligent walking tour and illustration of how was Venice and its Commedia del' Arte, the different masks and customes and it was like we were transportew to those times of the past. And we laugh watching and participating in a Theatrical show with actors of the Theatre of Venice performing for... More

We have just experienced two tours of Walter which made our holiday a great cultural experience. Gourmet tour at the sweet house of Giacomo's mother and walking tour with Gioia has been milestones of our trip! I recommend everyone to take these tours and leave themselves into safe hands to guarantee a pleasant trip!

Last September I went to Venice with a couple of friends from San Diego. Since I'm from Barcelona an Venice is not that far from my city, I've been there many times before, but always on my own, so this was the first time I took a tour there. It was my friends' first time in Venice and they were... More

I can say only positive things about Venezia. Just take the vaporetto and enjoy looking around, you can see the wonders of Venice! Must be experienced at least once in your life.
