Giovanna was so very informative, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She also was an expert at getting us past the crowds in the Basilica and Doge's Palace.

I spent an absolutely fabulous day touring Venice with Giovanna. She was so warm and knowledgeable that it was like spending the day in the city with an old friend who knew it. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sue! Same feeling for me, sometimes it simply happens :)

Giovana is completely focus and extremely knowledgeable during the tour. She was very thorough with her explanations and she made sure we do not miss out on anything. We learnt so much during our 1 day tour with her. Keep it up Giovana. From Mr & Mrs Alex

Giovanna was a super friendly, very knowledge and an easy to talk to guide. With our art and design backgrounds and our love for history we had high expectations and hopes to get as much background information as we could. We were not disappointed at the end. The 3 hours went way to quickly and I could have walked the streets with her for another three hours. I would definitely ask her again to be our guide again. We hope to be back in Venice soon again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Gabriela. You and your daughter were superb listeners. I do hope too to meet you again in the future!

Giovanna has a tremendous breadth of knowledge, and deep insight into both the artistic and cultural life of Venice during its glory days, and helped us understand how the Republic survived and flourished for 3 centuries, until the advent of Napoleon. Personally, she was warm and friendly while still managing to convey to us a wealth of information about Saint Mark's Square and Cathedral, as well as the Doge's Palace, all of which we toured with her. She was an absolutely first rate guide and docent.

Giovanna was probably the best guide we have ever had She was incredibly knowledgeable. My husband is a history buff so they exchanged knowledge. We will ask for her again next time we visit Venice

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jo, I've learned a lot from your husband, too!!! Hope to see you back in Venice then :)

I visited Venice last year and saw St. Mark's on my own. I chose to have Giovanna be my guide this year and I am so glad that I did! She gave a such a depth of understanding to the history of Venice as well as the church and palace. I saw and learned more in a few hours with her than I did last year in two days on my own! Thanks, Giovanna, for a great tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jane, your words are touching... Giovanna

Giovanna is an outstanding guide (and we had hired many). She is well informed and her presentation is fresh, informative and exciting. Her English speaking skill is excellent and she is friendly and charming. We say that's a ten star rating!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert, you are curious travellers and sensitive observers. You've made my day :)

Giovana was excellent. She provided exactly the information we needed to understand what she was showing us. The historical detail provided was particularly valuable.
