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.

It was fun and pleasure. Vincenzo was very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide. We went to places where you wouldn't normally go with other tours and really, all the tour was a priceless experience! We will come back and again work with L'altra Venezia

In Venice we booked a walking tour with L'altra Venezia. What a great experience! The tour was fabulous and informative. Walter was full of facts and knowledge, and he is genuinely warm and enthusiastic about his city. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Walter and I would recommend seeing the city with L'altra Venezia.

I decided on this tour company based on the Tripadvisor reviews. I emailed Walter and he responded in English. I explained to him that our group was traveling to Venice, three of the group first timers, and he and I came to the conclusion that we would have a walking tour of main sights on Sunday morning and a boat...

I thought long and hard before writing this response. I read your review and I was astonished. I cannot understand the reason for your words, as in front of me you said different things. I try to reply point by point: - Andrea (your guide in the morning) is highly respected among colleagues and between travel agencies, and has never... More

In November 2011 Walter Fano took us on his walking tour and showed us the intimate Venice that escapes to the vast majority of tourists. There was not one question that he could not answer and somehow Walter had access to many buildings that were restricted to the common tourists. Walter has a passion for Venice that it is contagious.... More
