Fernando did a great job, giving us wonderful insider information about the neighborhoods of Dorsoduro and San Polo! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him, and even though 2 of the 4 of us had been to Venice before, we learned a lot from him. I have no hesitation in highly recommending him--I would use him again myself!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Eileen, your enthusiasm was the greatest asset that day. And you found out there is a lot to see in Venice, worth 2 trips at least. Lots of joy to all Fernando
We thoroughly enjoyed our guided tours around Venice with Fernando. His local knowledge and perfect English was excellent. We found him very obliging and very good company. He recommended some excellent local restaurant. Marie O'Connell and friends
For this we didnt have Fernando. Something came up for him so he kindly sent Alexandra. She was a lovely girl.we didnt get to take full advantage of this tour as there was a long delay in getting started not her fault but fernandos. So she done her best. She certainly had very good English and unfortuneatley she was unable to speak up in the friari church, so some of our group couldnt hear her.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We contacted the guide and he acknowledges his mistake that resulted in the delay at the beginning of the tour. According to the guide the customer was advised and agreed with the substitute before the tour. As a way of trying to make things right after the initial mishap, Fernando decided to pay for this groups' headphones and entrance fees to San Marco church.

A great tour of Venice. Fernando adapted to our slower pace and changed his normal tour to meet our needs. His sense of humor made the tour.

This was an outstanding tour of the Dorsoduro region of Venice; an area somewhat off the beaten path where few tourists venture. As with previous tours led by Fernando, my wife and I were greatly impressed with his professionalism and knowledge of history, art, and architecture. We highly recommend this tour.
Fernando is great. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Dan, if you'll come again to Venice ring me up. We can go out for a great pizza dinner!! All the best Ferdinand

Fernando introduced us to a part of Venice unknown to us from 2 previous visits. Dorsoduro was very different from the crowded San Marco and Rialto areas, calm, uncrowded and with a different story to tell. The Frari church was a real history and art history lesson and led to our great interest in the nearby Scoula Grande and San Rocco church. The time with Fernando was like a visit with an old friend wanting to share his city with us. Hi point of Venice for us

Fernando was great, he was prompt in meeting us and showed us exactly what we wanted to see. He has an easy going personality and did not rush us. His English was excellent and we would highly recommend him to others.
