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

A family of four, kids 10 and 14, had a fantastic time with Sabrina Scaglianti. She had in depth knowledge of so many interesting facts. She was able in a great way to adapt the tour to the whole family. We can strongly recommend her as a guide for a walking tour of Venice.

Helene customized a tour on the fly for my wife and me. We had a great experience with her. She is smart, informed and very easy to be around. We walked for 3 hours and then had lunch together at a tiny Italian tapas place (Arco) that we would never have found on our own. It was so good my... More

Twenty of us, all in our 70s, spent a couple of days in Venice for a Harvard Business School reunion and we had asked Fernando to arrange suitable tours and suggest restaurants. It was an excellent decision which made our time in Venice both memorable and enjoyable. On the first day we had a three hour walking tour of the... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of joining Fernando for a terrific walking tour of Venice. Fernando was erudite, charming and witty and he brought Venice alive for us on our first trip to the marvelous city. We walked for three hours through St. Mark's Square, the adjoining neighborhoods and the Rialto area including the outdoor market. So, if... More

We did the "Deep Castello" tour in Venice with Sabrina as our guide. My wife and I had been to Venice before, but for my daughter and in-laws it was their first time. This was a perfect tour for everybody in our group. Sabrina is an excellent guide and kept everybody interested for the entire tour. I would definitely recommend... More

Our tour was back in 2014 we booked Doge's Palace & St. Mark's Basilica. That was not my first time in Italy, but first time Venice. I am so happy we decided to explore this place with our private guide Rosa. She was outstanding, informative and friendly. Her English was perfect! We had small group of 4, which I believe... More

We booked Sabrina after reading other reviews and we were not disappointed! Sabrina met us at the platform and instantly put us all at ease. Sabrina's knowledge and passion of Venice means you get an insiders view of the real Venice as well as its rich history. We liked the idea of a private tour and the extra cost was... More
