Fernando is truly a professional guide, having been in the travel and convention business for many years. He is extremely knowledgeable about Venice's history, landmarks and present and future conditions. We toured with him on a Sunday and were not able to enter St. Mark's until after 2:00PM. Although our tour was officially over, he had lunch with us, and escorted us into the cathedral, above and beyond. Heartily recommend his tour.

Sabrina was excellent and very friendly. She spoke good English and was very helpful for things to do after the tour. The price is quite high for just 2 people but we had only 1 day so we just had to do it. The water taxi driver was very nice and made sure that we used all of the time we paid for. I appreciate that since he too was expensive. I will definitely do this again with your company in other destinations. Thank you! Peggy

FERNANDO was FABULOUS!!!! He was so knowledgeable about the sights and history of Venice. We wanted to extend our tour with him but he already had another obligation. Fernando was very professional, spoke excellent English and was easy to understand. RUTH

Fernando is very knowledgable about Venice and its history.He covered a lot of ground with us,gave us a very good tour on the Grand Canal.The only reason for a bit lower rating is he was not sensitive to being on a long walking tour on a hot day with a 12 year old boy. It took him over 30 minutes to find a place to have a cool drink and use the WC and that was 3.5 hours into the tour.He needs to better tailor his program to the customer.He was also leaving on vacation the next day and seemed ready to go

Our group of 7 had been awake/traveling for more than 24 hours when we met Fernando for 3.5 hours of walking through Venice. We were NOT at our best and even had some difficulty finding him to begin our tour, but his energy, knowledge and good humor were infectious. We started our cruise that evening, tired but thrilled with our experience in Venice. Every member of our party felt that Fernando had set the tour guide bar VERY high for the folks that followed.

From the gondola ride to the stroll through San Marco, we fell in love with Venice thanks to our outstanding guide! So little time, but we managed to see it all even briefly...we still talk about the beautiful masks in the shops! What a unique and wonderful place - loved it! The Pongia's
We were extremely pleased with our tour and tour guide. Fernando arranged for his associate Helene, to show us around Venice City. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable, polite, pleasant , and punctual and we would rate her 5 out of 5. The walking tour was amazing, her local knowledge was excellent. Also the boat tour portion of our trip was equally well organized. The boat met us at the desired location, again on time and very professional. Well done, Clifford and Katy K.
