Daniela was terrific. She met us at our hotel and tailored our tour to our interests. We visited Murano and walked the streets of Venice. We are foodies. So we all had a lovely lunch at a small Locals spot we'd have never found on our own. Her English is perfect and she has a deep knowledge of her city. We'd look her up again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, thanks so much for your kind words. It’s been a big pleasure to spend some hours with you in Venice, you are so nice people and your experience regarding food is so interesting to me :) I hope you’ll keep good memories of our day together, all the best to both of you, Daniela

My family of 5, (we have 3 college kids) took the tour of the Doge's Palace and St, Mark's with Daniela, this April. We chose Daniela, because her bio indicated her love of history, and native Venetian knowledge. She did not disappoint! Daniela, was so well versed in the history of Venice, the architecture, the art in the time of the Doge's, it was fascinating to all in our group. Never dry, never boring, she had interesting asides and stories that made the period and the pace come alive! Great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Melanie Thanks so much for your nice words, I’m so happy you have enjoyed the tour in Venice with me! I hope you’ll keep nice memories of this wonderful city. All the best to you and your lovely family, Daniela

A wonderful tour of Vicenza!!! Daniela was great!!! She has a comprehensive knowledge of Vicenza, the local area and Italian history in general. More importantly, she is an excellent teacher and captivated both the adults and the 12 year old member of the tour. If you are touring Vicenza choose Daniela as your guide!!!.

The four of us were enchanted by Daniela and her knowledge of the city. I chose her from all the guides on the site because of her emphasis on art and history--the important aspects of Venice to us. She was amazing in being able to answer all our many questions. The pace was perfect and we got to see the highlights, plus have lots of information on the growth of Venice and its doge system of government.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much! What a wonderful day with you and your friends. You all are extremely knowledgeable, interested travellers and open to discussion about historical events. You gave me so much satisfaction, thanks so much, I hope to tour you all again somewhere in my region!

Daniela Z was a GREAT tour guide!!! We had a group of 10 adults and 2 children. She was very knowledgeable and answered all of our 6yr old's inquisitive questions. She was considerate towards every one in our group, making sure we were all together and ready to move on throughout the tour. You can tell she loves what she does. We would absolutely recommend her to others! We would have loved to have her join us for the Florence and Rome legs of our trip as well! Daniela THANK YOU for a very enjoyable day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for those kind words! I'm really happy you and your folks enjoyed Venice with me, you are so nice people and the kids are simply amazing! It was an absolute pleasure for me. Safe onwards travels in Italy, I hope to see you again maybe on a tour in Vicenza next time! Ciao, Daniela

Just finished an all-day tour of Vicenza with Daniela. She was wonderful! Very knowledgeable about history, architecture, and art. She answered all our questions and was a pleasing person with whom to spend time. You could not ask for a better guide! Her knowledge of the town was encyclopedic. She loves her home town, and her love shines. We recommend her without reservation! I wish I could do entire tour again, think I retained half of what she shared, but that half will have me dreaming of Palladio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael and Nancy, you've been extraordinary guests and it's been such a pleasure to spend some time with you and show you around my marvellous region. I wish you all the best and hope to meet you again on another journey :-) Daniela

Daniela was beyond fantastic! She took her time with us and showed us so many details of Doge's Palace and St Mark's and even gave us a walking tour to the Rialto bridge, again pointing out numerous details along the way. We know tomorrow where we are heading as she showed us on a map numerous things to do and places to see. The message is she was super personable and really cared about us and her presentation. Hope to be back and use her services again! Thanks Daniela!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Timothy for your nice words!! It has been a pleasure to meet you both, I really hope to see you again when you will come back. There is so much to see still in Venice and the Veneto! Best regards, Daniela

Date: Sep 20/18

wonderful personalized tour Daniela designed a tour just for us, starting by meeting us near the cruise ship as we didn't know our way around Venezia. She spoke impeccable English (and is fluent in several more), could answer all our questions, arranged a private water taxi ride around some back canals after we took a vaporetto (water bus) to St. Mark's Square to check out the Doge's Palace and Bridge of Sighs. She was very informative, and spent much more time with us than I had anticipated.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, thank you very much for your nice words, I'm very happy I've left some good memories of your trip in Venice! All the best, Daniela

Wish there was 6 stars for Daniela. We took 6 TBL tours in Italy and all were good. Daniela was the best however. Experienced, patient, got us through some back doors and put together a ending to our tour by small motorboat rather than walking as we had a member who had great difficulty in walking. Flexible and spoke great English.

I would rate Daniela a 10+, she is one of the best guides that we have had in over 65cruises and many private guides. The things that made Daniela special was that she made our family of 7 feel like family, her knowledge of Venice is remarkable, after a wonderful waterside lunch we were treated to a private glass blowing demonstration, then off to the gondola adventure, Daniela waited until we were through and guided us to our hotel. I encourage you to engage Daniela as your guide in Venice.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, we had 2 special days together, Venice offers always some surprise for sure, but it was you and your nice family that made for 2 outstanding tours! Take care to you all, I hope to meet you again in the future! Cheers, Daniela
