About Alvise Private Tour Guide in Venice
Buongiorno! My name is Alvise , a very common name here in Venice, used by the doges during the Venetian Serenissima Republic. In English it can creatively be translated in Elvis! I am born and raised in Venice. Done with my studies at the University of Venice in Art History and Conservation of the Cultural Heritage, I decided to undertake the route of a professional tour guide in my city!

Alvise is an absolutely wonderful tour guide! We booked the walking and boat tour around Venice and it was spectacular. He makes it very plain that he has a lot of love for his city, and really made us fall in love with it too. He booked a slot for us at the terrace on top of Fondaco dei Tedeschi - spectacular views! And the boat ride was just amazing. We drove around the grand canal and finished at the Murano glass blowing factory. All in all - Alvise helped us put together a magical day we will remember forever!

Alvise was perfect for us - friendly, funny, knowledgeable, and so patient and kind with our 3 kids. We took extra breaks for snacks and spent longer on everything in general, and he never made us feel like we needed to keep moving. It made for a fun and relaxed day full of new experiences and so much information about Venice. Plus he gave us lots of tips about food and activities for our next few days - such a great experience!

Alvise was recommended to us by the concierge of our hotel and it was the best thing we could have! After our first tour with a vaporetto, where he explained us the incredible view of palazzos along the canale grande, we asked him to come back and show us Venice by foot for half a day. When you join him for a tour you really feel, that he is not just repeating knowledge from a book, but he tells about vital life from born and grown-up Venicean who studied History of Arts and is living for the city. He can make you feel and understand the life of the people in this incredible city in ancient times. Same time, he is funny with himself and the people in his city, knows the best spots for high-class dining as well as the best pizza. If we come back to Venice, we would be happy to learn more about this city - but only with Alvise!!!

Alvise is an excellent tour guide. It is clear that he loves his city and knows it like the back of his hand. We explored fascinating parts of Venice we would never have discovered on our own and toured an amazing Murano glass studio. He gave us great tips on where to eat and visit on our own. In addition, he is fun to be with -- it is like visiting an old friend in his hometown.
