We are a family of six, four adults and two children that recently did the Land and Water tour of Venice. We drove into Venice from Lake Garda (Bardolino), parked at Piazzale Roma (Communale car park 29 Euro) and caught the Actv no. 2 water bus to St Marcs (7.50 euro per person one way). As the weather was hot... More

We arrived in Venice with little advance planning, but we hoped to find a very personable, as-yet-unidentified guide to offer an introductory, academic-quality tour by boat of the city and its environs. To our delight, Helene Salvadori answered our hotel concierge's call, arrived right on time with a water taxi in tow, and took us on a wonderful, two-hour excursion... More

We went on the Venice Land and Water tour and really enjoyed it. Our tour guide was a local history professor who was very knowledgeable about the history and architecture. I would highly recommend them and especially this tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed a guide in Venice and Sabrina scaglianti - we started at our hotel and proceeded to San Marco and the church we got in very quickly and our kids really enjoyed it as well. We then went on a tour of the grand canal and lesser canals with Sabrina. Her knowledge of the city was incredible. We... More

We spent 2 days prior to cruise & 4 days prior to cruise... and we will go back to Venice for more days (perhaps without a cruise). We walked all morning & stopped for lunch when we felt hungry - returned to our hotel for a nap & shower & continued exploring the rest of the day & evening! I... More

Helene met us at the train station and took us to see Murano, Burano and St. mark's square. she was very easy going, knowledgeable and flexible when it came to... More

We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 teen boys) and only able to enjoy Venice for a day prior to boarding our cruise ship. Actually we only had a half day as we landed that morning. Sylvia wasn't our intended guide. It was meant to be Sabrina. However, Sabrina fell ill and made arrangements with Sylvia Donaggio... More

When we got off the train in Venice, our fantastic guide, Helene, was waiting for us and our tour started immediately. She was extremely knowledgable about her city and stopped every few minutes to point out all the unique quirks and facts that we otherwise would have missed. She was very accommodating and even rushed us across town in four... More

We booked a tour thru A Guide in Venice and Fernando was our Tour Guide. We had a WONDERFUL time! Fernando gave us the perfect tour. There were 4 of us (2 couples) and Fernando met us outside our apartment (which was really great - many tour guides want to meet you in very crowded sites and it may be... More

We had just a few short days in Venice and wanted to make the most of our experience. We contacted Helene through a personal recommendation from a friend. The four of us spent a half day exploring the streets and alleyways with her. We loved her knowledge of history and art, fun stories that allowed us to step back in... More
