My husband and i only had one full day in Venice following a 12-day cruise. We wanted to see as much as possible. I contacted "A Guide in Venice" and told Margret exactly what we wanted to see. Fernando was wonderful. He met us at our hotel in the morning and we never stopped, except for lunch. He can skip... More

Sabrina was a wonderful guide. She was very flexible (we hit one of the rainy days) yet provided so much of the historical background that we wanted. She also was able to bypass some of the lines so we spent the time seeing the sites. She also provided some information on the cultural differences and took us to the open... More

Helene was a wonderful guide for our guided family tour of Venice. She did a great job navigating the crowds to ensure we saw everything we wanted to see -- we only had the 1 day to tour Venice. Helene did well to make the sights interesting for the teenagers. The visit to the glass works was very interesting. Thank... More

Having been to Venice before without a personal guide, I have to say that this tour is more than worth the money. A guide can get you to the highlights quickly and avoid the lines while also providing a beautiful experience. For example, our guide took us on a water taxi for part of the tour and it was a...

First off, booking this tour was so easy and pleasant. They were very flexible, we received detailed info and, our tour guide, Sabrina, met us right in our hotel. The tour was perfect since we had such a short amount of time in Venice and we wanted to cover as much ground/water as possible. It started with a private boat... More

Helene was very knowledgeable, gave us great advise on restaurants and food, and was an excellent tour guide. She was such a pleasure...... we learned so much! We highly... More

We took a tour with Helene, who was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Given our limited time in Venice, this was a great way to cover a lot. From busy San Marco to quaint Dorsoduro, and a Grand Canal water taxi tour it was time and money well spent.

Hélène was a very enthusiastic, energetic and professional guide! Although we are an architectural office, visiting Venice for team-building, we learned a lot about both Paladio and contemporary architecture. I would totally recommend taking this super interesting tour from the lovely Hélène!

Venice was the last stop of a whirlwind vacation through 4 cities in Italy. Our two teenagers were essentially "done" with touring, seeing art and the like. I spoke with Sabrina our guide before our tour and gave her the pulse. DID SHE EVER DELIVER! She gave us a fantastic tour of the Doge Palace and St. Marks. Instead of... More
