It was our first (but hopefully not last) time in Venice. It doesn't matter how many videos you have watched and how many books you have read about Venice - Sabrina Scaglianti makes the history of Venice so alive, you feel like you know nothing about it. Sabrina's English is absolutely impeccable (beware guides whose broken English or heavy accent... More

On long weekend solo visit to Venice (my first), I splurged and arranged a 3-hour tour with Sabrina Scaglianti. She offered to show me any area that interested me, and we settled on the area around Santa Maria dei Miracoli, the Scuolo di San Marco (sp?), and then a boat ride up to Murano to visit Massimiliano Schiavon's amazing glassworks....

This was our fourth trip to Venice but the first for my brother and his wife. I had arranged a general overall tour on the first day of our arrival, the first being a several hour walking tour and a hour tour by boat of the Grand Canal. Both encompassed the highlights and gave them a good overview of the... More

Four of us spent a number of hours over 2 day with Helene getting to know Venice. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and felt we gained some real knowledge about the history and customs of Venice. She was very personable and engaging and never rigid in her approach. She listened to what we were interested in and then... More

Sabrina Scaglfanti was our guide during this walking/boat tour of Venice. She did an excellent job of giving us the history of Venice via land and water. It was a 2 hour walking tour (be prepared to walk) and one hour on a private boat on the small canals and Grand Canal of Venice. She took us on small streets... More

My wife and I signed up for the “All about Venice Tour” with A Guide In Venice on September 25, 2015. This being our first trip to Venice we were looking for a tour that could give us an understanding of the city that we could not get from the standard tourist offerings. Our guide Fernando provided that and more.... More

Sabrina was wonderful. My friend is really my sister and we are in Venice starting a trip to celebrate a special birthday for her. Today was our first full day here and we chose this smaller tour company because of the great reviews as well as the availability for specialization of our tour. We have both visited the Palace and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our four hour morning tour with Fernando. His English is very fluent and his descriptions are easy to understand. Fernando organized our time carefully so we could see everything we wanted to while avoiding as many crowds as possible. Fernando is very accommodating when you need a washroom or drink break. We really like the fact that... More
