Latest reviews from our guests

    Benedetta s experience and contacts within the city made us feel like we were really part of the city almost as a local, as opposed to just tourists. Her food recommendations were top-notch, resulting in dishes that delighted in enjoyment and local flavor. Benedetta s past experience in mask-making gave us a much more in-depth experience during Carnevale, allowing us a unique insight into the masks, costumes, and history. She very patiently and thoroughly answered all of our questions about the history of the city as well as its current interworking. The tour felt more like we were viewing the city with a friend than a tour guide, however, she was excellent at maintaining a balance of friendliness and professionalism. The Murano Glass-making tour that she set up wildly exceeded our expectations. Her explanation of the map of the city and the different districts helped us in our subsequent days to navigate on our own finding new sights she suggested. She moved at a pace that was comfortable for us and checked in so that we were comfortable and happy throughout. We never felt rushed and were very flexible in switching the agenda if we wanted to. Over it was an extremely pleasurable, fun, and highly enjoyable day.

    It was an excellent tour, from the quieter north side to the bustling San Marco. Victoria’s knowledge of the city is excellent, from its fascinating history to arts, architecture, theatre to where movies were filmed. A great tour which enhanced our Venice experience. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

    We enjoyed the walk despite the rain and appreciate how our time was maximized to see the many different faces of the city, thank you!

    Davide gave us a real insight into Venice life. He was knowledgeable about history, politics, the environment and its impact on Venice and the lagoon. We saw a side of Venice which most tourists wouldn't and we all really enjoyed the tour. We would thoroughly recommend this and loved Davide.
