We booked Nadia for a 3 hours introductory tour and a 5 hours island tour. We met Nadia at our hotel where she gave us a 30 minutes introduction to the history of Venice. As English is not our mother tongue, we had slight problem understanding each other initially. This however was an issue as we get used to each... More

Not having been to Venice before and with only limited time in cruise schedule, my wife and I booked two tours. The first was a 3-hour walking and water taxi tour; the second was a tour of Murano and Burano Islands with transfers by water taxi. Initially, we weren't sure that the first tour was for us but once our... More

We started off at the only church of the trip. It was plain from the outside. Nadia said get ready for pleasure. Walk down the center aisle and look up. It was just as beautiful as Sistene Chapel with no crowds. We walked down the alleys Venetians use got a real feel for their typical day. I mentioned curiosity about... More

My husband and I booked a 2 hour walking tour + 1 hour private water taxi tour (her suggestion based on my e-mail to her) with Nadia in September. We only had one full day in Venice and wanted to make the most of it, and we are so glad we toured with her. She met us at our hotel... More

We had an excellent islands tour with Linda. She was very gracious, flexible. Linda's accommodated all our requests and introduced us to cicchetti (famous Venetian antipasti). We even visited Church of Santa Maria e San Donato in Murano by our request (marvelous mosaics) which was not initially included into our tour schedule. Our only regret is that we did not... More

After great reviews on here we thought to give Nadia a go and I'm glad we did. First we were late, we got lost trying to get back to our hotel, so we really needed some guidance on Venice and how to get around. Nadia gave us a brief history of Venice and she did it in such a way... More

We had a walking tour with our two boys 11 & 13 years. Nadia was excellent with the boys. I would highly recommend touring with Nadia, for her personality, local knowledge and value for money. Excellent way to spend the morning. Highly recommended and so glad that we booked with her. Would do it again if ever in venice.... It's... More

My family met Nadia on Sept.18th in the afternoon. We were seven adults and had a walking tour and boat tour. I can't begin to say how much we enjoyed the afternoon we toured without crowds, learned a lot about Venice. Nadia is a pleasure to be with and I would highly recommend this tour.

Nadia is not just a breath of fresh air but a giant gasp of fresh air. Our day consisted of a great boat and walking tour and a fantastic history lesson. All conducted by a fabulous person. Her attention to detail and personal satisfaction is unsurpassed.

Our tour with Nadia was one of the highlights of our trip. She truly loves her native city and can’t wait to help you discover all of Venice’s hidden charms. We were very impressed by her ability to tailor our tour to our tastes and requests. You can’t go wrong with any of her tours and would highly recommend her... More
