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

We had a wonderful experience with a tour guide name Helene. We have children ages 10 and 7 and she was wonderful with them and made it a family friendly event. 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

Sabrina was our guide on our 3rd day and she was excellent. We finished our tour feeling that we had learnt a lot about part of Venice's history. Highly recommended. We had originally planned to do the 3-hour tour, walking and boat ride with kids but since we had done a similar boat tour earlier, so we opted for a... More

I was hesitant to book this tour as many had told me that Venice didn't require a tour. So glad I didn't listen and booked this tour. Sabrina was our guide and she was amazing. Sure, we could have walked without it but we would have missed the amazing history. We did the 3-hour tour, walking and boat ride with... More

We took the advantage of the Canal tour, Murano Glass factory and walk from Arsenal to San Marco's. The 4.5 hours and tour length is just perfect for us! Fernando is knowledgeable on history, building, architecture and has tons of story to tell! Fernando is funny, attentive, and even treated us for a cup of espresso at break. His priority... More

Our family recently enjoyed a private tour in Venice with Helene Salvadori who helped us discover the city from the water with an off the beaten path itinerary. From the Cruise Terminal we went through the canal facing the Giudecca island and Helene pointed out so many famous landmarks. Passing by Santa Maria della Salute Church we reached the monastery...
