“Everything Being Said About Luisella is True and Accurate -- She is Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I just returned from a three week vacation in Northern Italy. We had never been to Venice before, so the thought of discovering this City was at first daunting. We booked a two hour walking tour with Luisella, and our concerns quickly disappeared.

The pace was comfortable and relaxing. Her enthusiasm and energy were infectious. Her command of English was impressive and left us with the impression she was a fellow American traveler. She exuded a love of the City and a passion for imparting knowledge and information. During the two hours we spent with her, we felt completely oriented and we knew that our return to the City the next day could be executed without hesitation or intimidation. And, in fact, that was precisely the case when we returned for a full day the very next day to complete our visit.

Those of you, like us, who are looking for a guaranteed way to maximize your time and your enjoyment of this truly unique City should waste no time booking with Luisella. She will not disappoint and you will have no regrets. You might even find that opportunities are made available that you may never have imagined. In our case, my wife and I found ourselves attending a concert open to the public at no charge that celebrated the musical genius of Giovanni Gabrielli. During our tour, Vanessa had pointed out that a celebration of the 400th anniversary of Gabrielli's death would be held the following day in an historic school that she pointed out as we walked along toward St. Mark's square. So, when we returned the next day, we managed to find ourselves inside this wonderful concert hall listening to some of the most marvelous orchestral music we have ever heard. We were among just a handful of tourists in attendance, as this was truly an event that only locals or those like us who were fortunate enough to get a heads up from Luisella would have known about.

Luisella's #1 ranking as a tour guide in Venice is certainly no accident.

“book her!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Luisella came to our hotel to pick us up to begin our walking tour. It was awesome. We felt as if she was our close friend. She has so much passion about her city Venice. She's very knowledgeable about the history of Venice. We're so glad we booked her. We'll never forget her and when we return to Venice we'll definitely book another tour with her.

“Very special tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

My wife and I booked a tour of Venice for our wedding anniversary and had a lovely time discovering some of the more off-the-tourist-track areas of the city.

Luisella is full of life and personality and knows the city personally as well as historicaly, so she was able to tell us not just the stories of the past, but how local craftspeople are faring today as the city changes.

Thoroughly recommended and would happily book again.

“Truly Wonderful Guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

What else can I say in a review of Luisella Romeo that hasn't already been written?! What I can say is that, to meet her in person and have her for a guide, is an extraordinarily memorable experience. She is not only extremely knowledgable, but is also so bright, enthusiastic and engaging that you simply don't want the tour to ever end! She arranged for a group of four of us to take a great water taxi ride guided by her as a wonderful introduction to Venice, followed by a great tour of St. Mark's and the Doge's palace. She is truly one of a kind and anyone who signs up with her is destined for a wonderful and unforgettable experience.

“Every star deserved!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

My husband and I have just returned from a brilliant two hours' walking tour with Luisella in a damp and grey Venice. Not only is she truly lovely, her English is perfect, she is massively knowledgable and really funny. Best tour we have ever done (and that is saying something). If you too can spend some time with her, then you are very lucky.
