My wife and I recently completed two tours with The Venice Experience: One with Mike, the other with Karen. Our trip was organized such that we were in Venice the evening before the embarkation of our cruise. In order to optimize our time, we scheduled a private cicchetti tour with Mike the night of our arrival, and a half-day private... More

Gill and I would like to thank you very much for the tour you gave us in October. It was a great experience, very well presented and informative. We went back into Venice the following day and re-visited some of the areas you showed us , as well as new areas, and felt very comfortable and relaxed in our 'wanderings'.... More

Venice is delightful and beautiful; made more so by time spent with Karen and Mike. We did two tours one with Mike the Cicchetti Crawl and one with Karen the Backstreets Tour. Both were excellent - we learnt so much and saw some truly hidden gems that if left to our own devices we may have walked by without appreciating... More

We took two tours with Karen and what a delight. On our first day she met us at our hotel and we spent the next four hours enthralled by her knowledge and passion for Venice. With two teenagers she pitched the information just right and we learnt so much. We saw the main sights that anyone coming to Venice must... More

We recently had a four hour tour with Karen and it was fantastic. It was so nice to be one on one with her and we could ask her as many questions as our curiosity was piqued. She explained so many of the small customs of Venice and little hidden nooks and crannies and we avoided the "tourist path" which... More

We had a fantastic day with Karen. She is extremely knowledgeable about the city and had great tips and insights to make our stay more enjoyable. Karen is a transplant from Baltimore. She now lives in Venice full-time and has lived there for at least the last 5 years. We learned so much about Venice and were extremely happy we... More

I booked only one photography tour during our vacation through London, Paris, Venice, and Rome. I figured that it would provide me the opportunity to learn more about a hobby of mine while being able to see a different side to the beautiful city of Venice. Mike met us at our hotel and we started walking. I could go on... More

We booked a 6 hour tour of Venice. Karen met us in the morning at our Hotel. The tour was very flexible and Karen ensured that we visited everything on our list. We learnt a lot about Venice and its history and all sorts of interesting facts. We managed to avoid a lot of the crowds by walking along the... More

We did the Essential Venice 4 hour tour with Mike and it was everything we could have hoped for. His love and passion for the city really showed through and importantly we had a really enjoyable time learning about the history of this fascinating city. It is easy to see how he and Karen fell in love with the place.... More

After these tours, we can understand how people fall in love with Venice. We sure did. After booking only one full day in Venice, my girlfriend and I took the six hour "Essential Venice" tour with Karen and later in the evening, the Cicchetti tour with Mike. It blew by very fast - mind you I am not a big... More
