License? Knowledge? Of course, they are more than important.
I have been working as a tour guide for almost 20 years and I still think that Passion and Love are fundamental in this work. Without Passion and Love is not possible to explain anything.
I consider myself very lucky because I still have the passion and the enthusiasm I had when I started this job and I am still surprised by the Beauty that surrounds me in all the Cities where I work: Venice, Verona, Vicenza, Padua, Treviso, Rovigo, and by the perfect and harmonic Architecture of all the Palladian and Venetian Villas. . .
I think that a good guide has to love her land first. I am a curious traveller, I read a lot, I like music and I play the Celtic Harp, an instrument with an unbelievable power to heal me when something goes wrong and I feel down. When I do not work, I like travelling with my kids to find other treasures in Italy and in the World.
The tours in my list are only basic tours and can be all customized according to your interests, requests and needs. If you have been already in the Veneto Region, do not be afraid to visit it again . . . . I can help you to discover new unexpected treasures . Choose an area that you would like to visit and contact me: I will customize your tour and give you the best solution.
I work with professional drivers who can accompany us during the tour into different areas of the Veneto, villages and towns of good wine and food, and in the Venetian countryside not far from big cities in which it is possible to spend a different and amusing day, enjoying Arts and Crafts, Nature, local Cuisine and much more.
My tours usually include everything and I can provide you with all information you may need about time, sites to visit, restaurants, museums, etc.
A tour with me is a real occasion to discover the Region in a different way, not only because I am an experienced and professional guide, but also and above all, I work with passion and love for my land. I know the territory, even the smallest hidden treasures, and I know how to avoid the crowds, lines and noise. I also know how to make a tour extraordinary and memorable. It will be your personal, unique tour…and you will have another reason to come back to visit my Region.
You have just to join me in this extraordinary visit of well known places and hidden treasures.
Choose one or more tours from my list and contact me: it can be transformed into your new exclusive experience of Italy.
A Recent Review of this guide
We had the BEST tour of the the Venice canals and the islands of Murano and Burano. Deborah is truly passionate and excited about her city and because of that our family learned and saw so much more than we ever would have. Deborah customized our tour and had the boat take us through some truly small internal canals to see a part of the city we never would have. I highly suggest adding that. Thanks Deborah for such a memorable day!
