Helene was... More

Legions of visitors float through Venice with many leaving the city devoid of a deeper appreciation of what they are witnessing. Our time with Sabrina deepened and enriched our understanding of how Venetians labored, fought and interacted with other empires. She is an adroit storyteller, a docent whose enthusiasm for her city is both authentic and contagious. This private tour... More

We booked a half day tour with Helene Salvadori based on the recommendation of a friend and are so glad we did. Helene made the city come alive for us and showed us parts of it we never would have seen. Venice is a very busy city with lots of tourists and it was such a treat to have Helene... More

Sabrina is very interesting, speaks excellent English and is a native of Venice, so you feel that you are being shown around this famous town by someone who truly knows... More

Contacted Sabrina, via email, following recommendation from a friend, receiving a prompt response. Various suggestions were given and a 3 hour walking tour was arranged. She met us promptly at our hotel on our first day and confirmed places we were to visit and if there were any changes we would like to make to our tour. We walked through... More
