The perfect way to begin my trip to Italy. Sharing a three hour stroll through the streets and alleys of Venice with Marco was one of the highlights of my vacation. His unabashed love of the city, its culture and history shine. Marco shares tips on photography, guiding you to sites perfect for testing newly learned techniques. He is adept at tailoring the tour to your interests. Best of all, this tour helped me learn to see things differently--the sites and sounds of Italy were more vivid and my experience richer. Thank you Marco!

This 3+ hour walking tour of Venice was the highlight of our trip to Venice and we enjoyed Marco and Julian each unique in their own style and charm.

Thanks again for a different slant on an eternal city.

We spent a morning with Marco touring Venice. He took us to so many interesting places that we would never have found on our own. He is easy going and wonderful to spend time with. It was like spending time with an old friend. It was a great combination of photography and travel. I am familiar with hiring private (tour) guides, and I must say that Marco is one of the best!

After reading excellent reviews in trip advisor, booked in photo walk tour with Marco Secchi. We agreed to meet early morning. He was on time to pick us up from our hotel.

He took us through little alleyways around Venice to few places. He arranged for the gondola ride himself and all was included in his fee. Gondolier Luca that Marco arranged for was so polite as well. Absolutely loved the romantic ride. He took some lovely snaps along the way. Though, this was the first time we met him, he had the ability to make us feel as if we had known him for years. He was so down to earth and knowledgeable.

He took us to a couple of places for breakfast and then to a lovely Canteen in Rialto called 'Do Spade' for snacks. We went back there everyday for the remainder of our stay as we liked it so much. His advice on travelling around in Venice and travelling to Murano, Burano was very helpful. We had forgotten to bring our travel adapters to Venice. Marco kindly dropped off his own adapter to our hotel for the length of our stay as we didn't have to buy one. He was extremely helpful.

We have beautiful memories from our trip to Venice and a part of this was due to Marco Secchi. I am now friends with him on facebook and his fan as an amateaur photographer myself.

If you visit Venice, you must book him for a tour. Highly recommended.

Great communication prior to our visit to Venice from Australia via e-mail.
Paid via Paypal.
On time and great evening/twilight tour.
Not only a fantastic photographer but a very interesting Gentleman to talk to on many subjects.
Fully recomend the tour and Marco as a person is beyond reproach.
PLUS we took some great shots and Marco bought the Spritz at the end of the tour.
