Guided by Walter you get to know the real Venice, of the beaten track and encounters with the rich history and real Ventians. Even in an overcrowded season he kows where to go for a nice, interesting and even sometimes quiet experience.

Chiara (sp.? - young woman) came to our hotel and took us on a 2+ hr walking tour-- it was rainy that morning. But we all put on our rain gear and visited the Rialto Bridge, the fish and food market,s a local opera house, and ended up in St. Mark's Square where she explained what we were seeing. She gave us a lot of historical information and pictures before we left the hotel. I highly recommend this company.

We offered my mom a visit of the city + cooking lesson with Andrea and she really enjoyed it! They met at the local market, visited the area and got a brief history of the place and culture of the city. Then they stopped at the local market and went into a charming private home to cook for lunch. A glass a wine, a visit on the terrasse on the roof and a lot of fun. My mom really enjoyed her experience and said she would recommend it to anyone. Also Walter made it easy for the payment. A quick international transfer (which cost 15$ for me...only downside) and that's it. He answered all our questions quickly which was good as well. Cheers
