Owner description: Life is a journey, travelling is living twice.” – Omar Khayyam – (Persian poet of XII century)I am a tour leader. 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. For me it represents an opportunity to meet men and women from different places and with different cultures.

Engaged Nadia for 3hrs walking tour. She started off with explaining the history and evolution of the Venice city which made the whole tour experience interesting and engaging. She took us to the off beaten route away fr the touristic path which gave us a unique touring experience. She is great with kids, setting off the tour as a journey... More

On the day of our trip the weather forecast was horrible,... More

The first day we chose to see much of Venice by ourselves...seeing and taking pictures of all the tourist attractions that everyone reads about online. Day two we decided to hire a tour guide and used Tripadvisor to help us find Nadia whose... More

We communicated with Vilma the entire time and she was incredibly helpful and gave us lots of ideas and suggestions. She answered all of my questions. Unfortunately for Vilma, she got sick on the day of our tour, but luckily for us - she sent an amazing guide, Giorgia. We had a lot of fun with Giorgia. We walked around... More

Our family visited Venice in October. We had two kids, ages 6 and 11, with us and we booked Nadia for a tour on our second day in Venice. It was fantastic. I was worried at first that my kids might have a hard time understanding Nadia. Her english is excellent, but she does have an accent and my six... More

After reading reviews of A Friend in Venice on Trip Advisor, I was convinced Nadia offered a tour that would best suit our needs. We were a group of six adults and opted for a 4 hour tour (3 hours walking and 1 hour via water taxi). After a 20 to 30 minute overview of Venice at our hotel, Nadia... More

We stopped at a bakery to see them in action and my daughter got to sample their biscuits. We saw how Venetians live and how... More
