In September a group of six adults and 2 teens spent 4 days in Venice. We scheduled 2 separate tours with Sabrina: TOTAL HOME RUN from the moment that we met Sabrina I knew it was a great decision. Completely worth the investment of money and time. We organized the itinerary ahead: 3-hour tour by boat concentrating on architecture, history... More

In June, 2014 our group of eight took a two week trip to Italy. We started our trip in Venice where we were cared for by Hélène through a company called A Guide In Venice (aguideinvenice.com). As the inexperienced organizer of this trip I was very thankful how great Hélène was pre-trip in responding to my e-mails, answering questions and... More

We had a wonderful tour of Venice with Fernando of AGIV which included a walking tour of San Polo, a great private water taxi all around, and a tour of St. Mark's Basilica. Fernando was passionate about Venice, and was an informed and interesting commentator on all that we saw. A very good investment for the short time we had.

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
