I visited many countries… not to find myself, tot o learn how to live. And from you, and all of those I met during my journeys I learned something.This is the reason why I love my job.

There's no better way to see a city than through the eyes of a local. Nadia was referred by our hotel and we spent half a day together walking through the back alleys of Venice doing what she recommended, "getting lost". She was informative and charming and engaging to our 2 young daughters. After a wonderful speed boat ride through... More

We organised a tour with Giorgia at short notice for 31st December. It was fairly expensive with the motor boat ride included (€160 for the 2 hour tour plus €120 for the boat ride) but it really is worth paying the money. Giorgia was a very engaging guide who kept us all interested, including two teenage children with very different... More

Our hotel suggested a walking tour with Nadia and we were so glad they did ! I was with my 16 and 11 year children in Venice for 3 days and wanted them to experience the real Venice. Nadia catered the tour to the kids and they loved it. She had lots information they found very interesting and she also... More

We had a mind blowing day with Auntie Nadia today. Our daughters were totally enthralled by her warmth and story telling and my husband's interest in building and architecture were expanded! We did a two hour walking tour and then a fantastic water taxi trip to see Venice by land and from the water. Even though it was a public... More

This was our first trip to Venice. We were with another couple, both couples celebrating our 25th anniversaries. Our guide Vilma was awesome. I don't think I could write enough to complement the personal service that she provided us. Vilma gave us an excellent walking tour, taking us to locations that the locals would go to eat/drink and it was... More

Our family of 4 joined Nadia for a 3 hour Venice for Pleasure tour which included a 1 hour private taxi ride. It was fabulous! We had already 'done' Piazza San Marco & the Doge's Palace ourselves, & told her that as soon as we met. Nadia immediately & without issue adjusted the tour so we didn't repeat any of... More

We were able to book a last minute tour with Giorgia during our holiday in Venice. We met at the Rialto (which is very touristy); but two quick turns with Giorgia and we were away from the crowds and never looked back. We walked around the quieter "local" streets for for two hours and saw many things not in the... More

G'day Everyone, What a truly educational, special and personally engaging private tour with Nadia. Nadia has a passion and pride in showcasing her fabulous Venice to world travelers ... taking you off the commercial track and involving you in the other less public or secret side of Venice. Nadia is like your long lost Auntie in Venice, always keen to... More

As a group of 2 adults and 2 teenagers we thoroughly enjoyed a three hour tour with Nadia which included one hour via water taxi. We immediately felt comfortable and welcomed to Venice by Nadia. Her initial briefing was very relaxed and informative and she really engaged the younger members of our group. We toured off the beaten path and... More
