Owner description: DiscoveringVenice is run by Antonella, Eugenia and Federica. We are Registered Tourist Guides since 2000. We offer a wide range of private tours. We also offer semi-private tours: a perfect way to share costs with other travellers like you. The private tours we organize can be either on foot or by private boat (Gran Canal, small canals, islands of the lagoon - Murano, Burano, Torcello). We are keen to organize customized exclusive tours to make you discover the "hidden Venice" and its back-streets, as well as the monumental classic Venice.

We toured with Antonella during carnival in venice 2013. She was a great guide. The streets of venice were beyond crowded during carnival but she was able to take us down cute walkways and bridges where there was no one around. She was full of knowledge. She was very accommodating and caring as we weren't feeling to well that day due to major jet lag. Would love to tour with her again if we are ever back in Vince. We would recommend her to all of our family and friends.

Our visit to Venice was wonderful because of the historical knowledge of our tour guide, Federica Fresh. Before traveling to Europe, I did extensive tour guide research. Federica was highly recommended by another Trip Advisor traveler. Now, I definitely will recommend to anybody reading this review that if you are traveling to Venice your tour guide should be Federica. If you are traveling to Venice, it is essential to have a guide that has the background knowledge and the ability to communicate information to you. Just as we were impressed, I am confident that you will be impressed with Federica. Her rates are customary, but the service is outstanding. Federica can be found with the group Discovering Venice (http://www.discoveringvenice.com/en/aboutus.html).

Prior to our visit to Venice we organised a walking tour with Antonella Fantoni based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! Antonella met us at our hotel right on the appointed time and asked us what we were interested in seeing and hearing about. Antonella gave us a lovely tour through some of the back streets of Venice captivating us with the history. We then went to Doge's Palace where we once again learnt about the history of the Palace in a very entertaining and informative manner. Antonella's knowledge of Venice is excellent and we highly recommend her services.

We had a wonderful private walking tour of Venice with Antonella. We had a relaxing half day tour around the streets of Venice, seeing some of tucked away treasures in locations we would never have found ourselves, as well as the major sights around San Marco. Antonella's knowledge of Venice is great and she was able to share with us some of her childhood memories as well as the history of Venice. Thanks Antonella for a memorable and engaging tour around your city.

We had 2 full days in Venice and on both days we had a 2 or 3 hour walking tour via Discovering Venice. Our guide was Antonella Fantoni and she was delightful company. She was knowledgeable and engaging. She was also very accommodating to make sure we fitted in the areas and attractions we wanted to see on the tour. We were able to correspond with her before arriving and this meant the tours were focussed and no time was wasted. Despite bad weather (it was December!) we had a great time. The additional benefit of using a private guide was it enabled us to also find out from a local about good places to eat, drink and visit outside of the main tourist tracks. Venice is a labyrinth and local knowledge was invaluable in helping us enjoy our stay when time was limited. A benefit of visiting Venice in December is that it’s not very busy. So we were able to pack in a lot within the limited 2-3 hours we had with Antonella. There were no queues for any of the main attractions and even St Marks square was very quiet. So our thanks to Discovering Venice and Antonella for really making our trip memorable and enjoyable.
