Attraction details
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 had the pleasure of booking a tour with Antonella. We are really glad that we did. First of all she met us at the hotel, quickly took us to St. Marks Basilca (she had access that allowed us to bypass a long line), St. Marks Square, and the Doge's palace. We booked her for 2 hours which was perfect. The kids were a bit tired of the 4 hour tours we had in Rome, and Florence. She was very knowledgeable about the each attraction and provided a great deal of insight. I'd book her again, and give Antonella my highest recommendation.

We were extremely happy with our experience with Discovering Venice. Frederica was very professional in all her dealings and replied to all my emails quickly and efficiently. She was more than willing to tailor the walk to what we wanted.

On our arrival in Venice she was there as organised and proved to be a wonderfully helpful, friendly and knowledgeable guide. She also went out of her way to help organise a private water taxis for the 12 of us the following day which we appreciated very much. Would thoroughly recommend Frederica.

Frederica arrives exactly as arranged, contacts her water transit and gets us to the St. MARKS Church/Doge, s Palace just as the churches bells begin to toll. Magnificent timing. And from that lovely beginning, we were treated to an highly informative stroll for 2 more hours. She adjusted the tour to our needs. Highly recommended for a private tour.

We took a walking/boat tour of Venice with Federica in June and it was FANTASTIC. We walked down the maze of streets and Federica told us about the city and gave us so much information about the structures, streets, shrines, food, and much more. We can't say enough good things about this tour. The boat tour was great too, we went down the small waterways then into the grand canal. The picture opportunities are endless. Venice is just beautiful! We loved everything about it (well, except for the cruise ship crowds!!). I highly recommend booking a tour with this company, and specifically Federica (although I see many many other reviews on the fantastic tour guides that work for Discovering Venice). It was very warm and humid in Venice in June but Federica did a great job at keeping us in the shade.

Me and my travelling buddy had the pleasure of spending 3-4 hours with Antonella in June 2012. What a fantastic experience. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. You get so much value out of having a proper, exclusive tour of the city you are visiting. Antontella was informed, professional yet casual and very willing to answer questions or direct the tour as we wished. I left the tour with a good knowledge of Venice, and with plenty of ideas and a better understanding of what I should be doing over the next few days in town.
