I visited many countries… not to find myself, tot o learn how to live. And from you, and all of those I met during my journeys I learned something.This is the reason why I love my job. For me it represents an opportunity to meet men and women from different places and with different cultures.

“Nadia our Friend in Venice”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Our family with 2 children ages 9 and 11 toured Venice on a private tour with Nadia. Words cannot fully describe how special and unique our experience was. First we were treated like family, baci baci Nadia. Nadia showed us to the real Venice and educated us about its history and how the people of Venice live. Our whole family was completely mesmerized during this personal tour -- even the Kids! We even arrived at a palatial "Venetian home" on the Grand Canal by boat entering as the Venetians once did through the primary entrance on the water. If you want to tour and see the local side of Venice there is only one way to do so; with Nadia.

“A tour with Nadia”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Nadia in Venice is the only way to go. Lovely in every respect. She will educate you on Venetian history and culture. She took us to Morano on the spur of the moment and saw glass making. Had lunch and seemed to get lost in a wonderful city. I could have not made it without her. Thanks so much Nadia!!

“Fabulous and fun tour of Venice with Nadia!!!!!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Nadia was an amazing tour guide in Venice on March 30. It was a great time to be there - Sunday - no crowds and the weather was perfect!! She knows the place inside and out and taught us so much!!! She's filled with facts and can answer any question you may have. Added to the main sights were a stop at a pasta (pastries as we call them - either way they were amazing!) and coffee, as well as a stop at a hotel terrace with some extra treats thrown in - all courtesy of Nadia.
We enjoyed our day and would highly recommend that you spend the day with Nadia and learn everything about the beautiful city of Venice!!!!

“Friend in Venice!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Take a stroll in the streets of Venice, pass the crowded streets and into quiet ones, over picturesque little bridges, into quirky little shops.* Get lost in the maze of alleys without worry, at the end of this tour you will feel at home, knowing how the city came to be what it is, recognising some of its little secrets. The walking is easy even though it covers a lot of ground, and the boatride ensures you get to see the city inside and out. Time flies, and when it´s time to say goodbye you will know exactly where to go for lunch. The restaurants suggested by our lovely guide turned out to be the best we tried during our stay. Thank you Nadia!

*(Ask for a business card if you wish to find your way back later, it might be harder than you think!)

“The only way to tour Venice”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Whether you are a first time visitor or not, spend time with Nadia to fully appreciate how special and unique Venice and Venetians are. Not only will Nadia educate you on Venetian history and culture, you will experience Venice on a more personal level through Nadia's connections. It is obvious at the various venues Nadia thoughtfully arranged for us to visit, there is mutual respect and warmth between Nadia and her peers. Our day with Nadia was memorable for many reasons, to be able to experience Venice's beauty and charm through a Venetian's eye, and to be able to spend time with the Venetian gracious and warmth that is Nadia. Thank you for a day our family will not forget, Nadia.
