We travelled to Venice last May - a family of 2 adults and our 12 y.o. daughter.I need to say that before we met with Fiona we've already explored the major sights of interest so we were hoping she would tell us something more about less popular routes. And she did! On the spot Fiona found out what we've seen... More

Fiona is a wonderful guide. She brings the history of Venice alive alive is flat out brilliant at explaining the art you will see. You could sit with Fiona for an hour in front of a single painting*, and you would stay enthralled. ... *though I don't believe she does this. And her tours are great for people with varying...

Prior to deciding on the various tours available, Fiona patiently guided us via email and recommended two itineraries to suit our needs. Fiona is a natural with my energetic 11 & 12-year old and managed to ignite their interest in the rich history of the city. Fiona is thoughtful and gave us great ideas to make the best of our...

There are no words to describe how amazing our tour was with Fiona! I have been to Venice many times over the past 10 years and just recently, I brought my aunt and uncle for their very first trip to Italy. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I chose Fiona to give us those insights that only a Venetian... More

My wife and I made our first visit to Venice last weekend, the last stage of a 3 week trip to Florence, Tuscany and Rome. We took several tours in the other cities with guides who were fine but Fiona was one of the best. We toured St. Marks and the Doge's Palace and ended up with a 1 hour... More

There is so much to Venice and Fiona is a master at finding out what interest you. The best part was her ability to not only explain the history of Venice but what life was like for people that live in Venice today. She has a great sense of humor and knows her city like the back of her hand.... More

Our group of eight had the pleasure of seeing the Cannaregio neighborhood with Fiona Giusto on Sept. 24. She was a delight! We could see that she enjoys sharing the history of Venice with her guests. We learned so much about the Jewish ghetto and surrounding area. Our tour was done at a leisurely pace and Fiona was always ready... More

My family did a tour with Fiona when we visited 15 years ago and when back in Venice for my honeymoon, I booked another 2 hour walking tour with her! She was so easy to work with and book via email and has many options to meet whatever your interests are in Venice. She was the perfect tour guide -... More

If you haven't experienced a private tour guide when travelling to special cities such as Venice, you are really missing something! Fiona has got to be the most personable, knowledgeable and most of all, organized tour guide I have ever met. She adapts very quickly to your expectations and needs. The tour is tailored to your preferences. If you want... More
