What people are saying about Venice

Exceptional and memorable tour of Venice

My family thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Stephano. Before we even set off on the tour, we were contacted by a lovely professional lady and owner of the company, regretfully can’t recall her name. Thank you for all your kind support in arranging the tour with Stephano. As a local Venetian, professional photographer and warm and kind soul, we really enjoyed seeing Venice at first light and uncovering all the hidden gems, canals, history, etc. he even bought my family coffee and pastries and took the time to teach us techniques on how to use both camera and iPhone cameras. When mosquitoes were bothering my daughter, he took us to a supermarket to purchase mosquito repellent. Showed us places to visit and restaurants to eat in. We have photos and memories that will last a lifetime and many more. Thank you Stephano for your expert guidance, your professionalism and warm and kind spirit!!! Hope to stay in touch.

Highly personalized and informative tour

Ilaria gave our family of four (including 12 and 10 year-old daughters) a wonderful 3-hour tour of Venice. We walked away knowing the city and its history much better and felt much more confident finding our way around without getting lost! Ilaria made excellent suggestions for local shops and restaurants to visit and neighboring islands to tour the following day. It was definitely worth it to pay the extra price for a private tour...Venice was mobbed and Ilaria helped us navigate efficiently through the crowds. We highly recommend taking this tour in the morning of your first full day in Venice. Thanks for a great morning, Ilaria!

Fantastic and interesting way to look around Venice.

Luigi, our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and took us to a lot of places we otherwise wouldn’t haven’t ventured to. This meant it was a lot quieter up until the end when we walked around the streets to St Mark’s Square which suited us perfectly. He got in touch with us beforehand finding out our interests to tailor the tour and checked in with us the previous day with ideas and suitability. An excellent experience and such a good thing to do on our first morning as we then had time to revisit places if we wanted to.

We were welcomed on arrival but a very nice man, who provided us with all the information we needed to know about mask decorating along with historical facts about the masks and Venice. The workshop is small but this made us feel like we were having a personal intimate experience. For 2 hours we sat thinking about absolutely nothing apart from the painting. It was incredibly relaxing and we were so pleased we had booked it! Would highly recommend.

Professional, personable and enthusiastic for her home city.

Totally lovely young lady, Ilaria escorted us to great views, and hidden treasures. She was open to changes and offered options that also fit into our allotted time. She is an intelligent, passionate and forward thinking young person who fit perfectly with me and my sons. More like her!
