What people are saying about Venice

Both sites are absolutely incredible! Basilica is a must see

My sister and I were expecting good things from this tour, but it was far far better than that! We easily found the meeting place. Everyone gets a headphone set so you can always hear your guide, and ours was called Rosanna. She was so lovely, upbeat, friendly, and funny. We did the Basilica first and we were lucky to be in there when it was illuminated and it was absolutely beautiful (it is usually only illuminated for mass and other than that for one hour a day). The Basilica also hosts an amazing artwork entirely made of gold and just under 2,000 jewels. This was information provided by Rosanna, and a lot of what made this tour good was all the facts she told us. It would not have been half as amazing without context. Then we did the Doges Palace where, as part of this tour, you actually walk inside and along the Bridge of Sighs, which we weren't expecting! Also the Doges Palace has the largest canvas artwork in the world, which was astounding to see. Two very happy customers!

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.

Best Guide ever! Oile was awesome! Very Knowledgable and attentive

We are so glad we go a Guide for the Basilica. Olie was fantastic. we learnt so much and our kids aged 10 and 14 were inthralled. She really catered to them well. it was a small group, 8 of us in total which was really wonderful. I would highly recommend this tour.

A great way to learn about the city without the crowded streets.

This was a wonderful tour that was paced perfectly. Our guide was very knowledgeable and easy to follow. It was a joy to navigate the streets without all the crowds and the earpieces worked very well for easy hearing.
