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

Wow! We were thrilled with A Guide in Venice and our tour. Thank you to Helene who was simply outstanding. My wife and I were traveling with our three tween/teen boys and loved the All About Venice Tour. It was a perfect mix of everything. Helene brought Church of St. Mark's to life and added so much to our understanding... More

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
