Our Venice hotel, Al Codega, set up our guided tour for my wife and I. Helene is an incredibly knowledgeable guide. She is very personable and adapts the tour to your depth of knowledge. The Basilica is the most incredible church we have ever visited. Helene gave us options so we could choose the ones that interested us. She took... More

Helene was with us for 3 tours in our 3 days in Venice and really made the trip for us. There was our whole family , 8 of us age 30-60. The first night we did a food and drink tour that helped so much finding fun wine bars that we visited again and restaurants with vegetarian food for some... More

Venice was the kickoff of a 10 day Italian cruise that myself, husband, sister and mom did in early October. And Fiona of AGIV was amazing. We did a 4 hour tour that started with a canal ride of not only the Grand Canal, but a few smaller canals. And ended with a walking tour of Doge Palace, Bridge of... More

Although we had all been to Venice before, this felt like the first time. Sabrina our guide was extremely knowledgeable and an excellent host for her city. AGIV worked with us to create a memorable day that fit with our schedule and limitations (travelling with an 84yo). We came away impressed by the history, awed by the artistry, and amazed... More

Venice Revisited First visited Venice 2 to 3 decades ago and back again at end Aug this year as it was the start point of our cruise to Athens. Done again most of what first timers would do except the gondola ride to refresh our memory of the unique and beautiful Venice. Doge’s Palace and Museum: It looked a bit... More

Helene was our guide for the day. Upon meeting at the port, we boarded the water taxi and talked briefly about what the... More

We booked a private guided tour.When we came to the meeting point at the time agreed on there was no guide.The only eplananation for us was that it is high season and the guides are very hectic.

Dear Gerard, thank you for your feedback. We are responsible for what happened and we deeply regret it: there was no intention to spoil your vacation and the cancellation is merely attributable to human error. When our assigned guide Stefano mistakenly cancelled your tour we immediately found another guide for the following day but unfortunately you could not take up... More

Our group of 32 spent 2 days in Venice at the end of our Mediterranean cruise. Prior to traveling, after extensive research, I chose AGIV, specifically Sabrina, for a 4 hour tour each day. On the first day, our tour was a combined 3 hour walking and 1 hour boat ride on the Grand Canal and some smaller canals. Sabrina... More

We were a party of 9, two families with teenage children and spent a wonderful day with Helene . With limited time available and a desire to see the islands of Murano and Burano as well as the San Marco, Helene ensured that we maximised our Venetian experience. Helene was knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating and we really enjoyed our day... More
