since I have returned I have told all my family and friends that if they are taking a trip to Venice, they must get Igor to help organise there stay. Travel agents in uk want £280 for transfers from airport to hotel Igor arranged this for us a lot cheaper and included tour up the gran canal on the way to hotel. I arranged a walking tour of Venice with Igor he came to our hotel we sat with the map discussing what we wanted to see and also what he recommended. We then had a fabulous tour seeing places that we would of never found and full details of the history. The tour was very relaxed and Igor was the best tour guide I have ever been involved with, any one going to Venice must get in contact with Igor he made our holiday so special

The absolute BEST “Hidden Venice” tour is done by Igor Scomparin. A Venetian native, he took our family (including our 7 and 10-year-olds) through the winding back alleys (“calle”) of this amazing city, all the while giving just enough interesting info to keep everyone engaged. Where did the term “campo” come from? Where’s the ugliest statue in Venice? Where’s the only house in Venice that’s on a peninsula? Have you ever seen a glass-blower create a tiny rabbit in less than 20 minutes? Igor is a fabulous source of info for lodging and eating suggestions as well; we loved the sandwiches and home brew at Birreria Forst (http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g187870-d1501225-Reviews-Birreria_Forst-Venice_Veneto.html ), on what Igor calls “sandwich alley”. Families with young children should stick with under-2-hour tours; "bigs" can definitely enjoy 3 hours with this wonderful guide!

Our first day in Venice was a great success, even though the weather was terrible. We booked Igor before arrival. He met us in our hotel lobby and conducted us like a good friend, through the magnificence of Venice, including a private tour with a master glassmaker! He is reasonably priced, and when we checked our map after the tour, Igor had covered every major site, plus some exquisite secret places. He has great stories and is very knowledgable.

The best value in expensive Venice. Communication with igor prior to our arrival was print and professional. Price for 4 of us was very reasonable. Igor met us right at put hotel and guided us on an insightful all day tour of Venice covering many of the islands. His knowledge of Venice was excellent. My husband and 2 teenage gis would high recmemd!

Igor was very accommodating. I had a knee injury and required the use of a cane. He spent extra time with us as I was slower with my mobility. He met us at our hotel and even assisted with our luggage as we checked in. He took us through the Jewish quarters and other areas where it was very quiet away from the main tourist area. He took us to a glass demonstration and patiently waited for us to shop. He was eager to answer any questions we had. Absolutely the way to go for a great overview of Venice.
