We had a wonderful time with Elisabetta! She took us to three bars in different neighbourhoods and the whole time we were walking or in the bar she was giving us information about typical life in Venice. She gave us guidance on how to find authentic shops and restaurants. As a lifelong Venetian she is a fountain of information, and a lot of fun too! Highly recommend for those interested in what life is like in Venice and who enjoy poking around neighbourhoods.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I need to thank you! Such a nice couple !!!!

Elisabetta is one special guide. Our kids were celebrating their honeymoon in Venice. This was their second tour with Elisabetta. She made them feel special and treated them like family. They loved visiting Venice in the morning! Great idea to see a different side of Venice. Less crowded. Elisabetta is full of information. Proud to share the history and beauty of Venice. She even met the newlyweds for an evening get together. Highly recommended! The Best of the Best!

This is the best way to see the city of Venice. It is early in the morning but it is wonderful because there are no crowds. Elisabetta was amazing. She took us on a walking tour of the more residential side of Venice. It was amazing to see and gave us a greater appreciation of the beauty of the city. Her suggestion for places to eat was perfect. We had dinner at one of them and loved the food. Thanks for everything and making our stay in Venice one to never forget.

How marvelous. Elisabetta was so personable and knowledgeable, and so passionate about Venice. We loved both the cicchetti and the stories about the different small establishments selling cicchetti, their family histories, traditions and customs both for ordering food and for socializing with friends. We had a marvelous time, seeing corners of Venice we might never have found on our own. Perfect for our small group of four. We'd happily tour with Elisabetta again. What fun!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I must say I enjoyed very much the company of you all. Really. Thanks.

Elizabetta was a wonderful guide. She was on time. She was very sensitive to what our expectations were and was sure she showed us things we had a particular interest in, The rain slowed us down but we did not miss anything. She was generous with her comments and suggestions. I do not feel we received a rote memorization of a talk. I enjoyed her company very much, we were more like friends out for a walk rather than guide and tourists. Thanks so much!

It was a treat spending time with Elisabetta. She is very friendly and was flexible about making a last minute adjustment to our plans. She designed the time based on our requests and we felt lucky to be walking around with a local through parts of Castello and then over to Dorsoduro, which we may not have seen on our own, learning about life in Venice along the way and interesting history highlights. We stopped at two fun places for a glass of wine/chatting. A highlight of our stay in Venice!

Elisabetta met us at our hotel. Before going too far she provided us with information and history of Venice. She explained why the early Venetians left the main land to live in he lagoon, and the social, religious, economic and governmental structure of the people. We visited the Rialto market and bridge, Campo de le Becarie (very interesting), piazza San Marcos, Doge's Palace, the bridge of sighs. We took a taxi tour and saw "The" gondola shop, the Grand Canal and more. Great morning.

Elisabetta was a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide, bringing her attention to details to everything. Her communication and people skills are excellent, and she has some very creative ways in helping children learn about history! (We brought our 8 year old daughter & 13 year old son along for the tour!) She was able to tell us the history about the smallest thing in full details. Elisabetta is not only very experienced, but also a very perceptive tour guide. I highly recommend her!

Elisabetta is a wonderful guide. My wife and 10 year old son were traveling with me on vacation and she made a special tour to keep my son's interest. She has great food suggestions and even made a reservation for us for dinner. This was the 2nd of 2 tours we had with her and enjoyed both of them thoroughly. I would definitely tour with her again the next time when in the Venice area. The tower of San Giorgio has a fabulous view of Venice and no stairs to climb!!! She is extremely knowledgeable and kind.

This tour is fantastic!! This was the 1st of 2 tours that we had with Elisabetta. She took us up to the rooftop of the Warehouse of the Germans which had a great view at sunset. Next, we went to several bars and sampled the Cicchetti at all of them. She knew the locals at each place and knew the best food to try. We also practiced our Italian with her which became very useful later in the trip. Our 10 year old son came along with us and she adapted the tour to keep his interest. Great Guide and great tour

This was the second of our four tours with Elisabetta; a delightful visit to interesting and less "touristy" areas of Venice, including a repair shop for gondolas. It was an opportunity to see the everyday environment of Venetians and to gain perspective on their culture. As usual, Elisabetta was very intuitive and candid in her explanations. This tour was an excellent compliment to our initial orientation with Elisabetta.

We had grandma along, so we kept to a slow pace and our teen daughter as well, who remained captivated by Elisabetta's stories and explanations. It does take some timing to move among the islands via water taxi, so we were glad to have her guide us through that. We intend to see her out again if we arrive in Venice again.

The magic of Venice comes to life when Elisabetta describes the origins of the ancient city and it's tumultuous past. An energetic and entertaining guide, Elisabetta takes you from the 1725 birthplace of the infamous Giacomo Casanova through tiny streets, across canals and bridges to the home of the city's modern University. Stopping along the way for gelato and chicetti, you see more than the usual piazzas, plazas and squares and you get to know the unique Venetian neighborhoods. A great experience!

Awesome walking tour after most tourists have gone back to their hotels. Elisabetta did a great job of telling us the history as well as making sure we were holding up after traveling all night. This was our 5th tour with Tours by Locals and we have never been disappointed. The private tour concept is perfect for us.

Fun tour visiting some unique "pubs" in Venice. We would never have found any of the local establishments without the company of our guide, Elisabetta. We had a fabulous afternoon visiting different Bacari and sampling great wine and cicchetti! It was great that the tour took to many areas of Venice further enhancing our familiarity with getting around the city.

Elisabetta was the PERFECT guide. She is incredibly well traveled and not only was she knowledgeable about Venice, she was funny and charming as well. She was flexible with our needs and schedule and went beyond her duties by offering to be the point of contact for any of the items we needed shipped.

Elisabetta had to work under very difficult conditions. It poured the entire time from when we left the dock in a water taxi throughout our walking tour of Venice. The crowds were dense and there was none of the magic of Venice. Despite that Elisabetta gave us a very enjoyable and informative tour showing us all the important sights as well as taking us to areas where there were less tourists. She helped us make the best of the day. An excellent guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: GRAZIEE!!!!! I am glad you really decided to take the tour despite the conditions!!!!

What a lovely day with Elisa - she knows and loves Venice and that certainly comes through. She once worked at Epcot in Disney - so very indulgent to visiting Americans. Good combination of social history and academic, light-hearted and very funny. A professional tour guide with a great streetside manner.

We had a fantastic day with Elisabetta on our tour to Murano , Burano and Torcelli which we visited making use of the water taxi to spend as much time as possible for these beautiful places . After that tour was finished we also did the "bar " crawl having a glass of wine and some of the bites that also the locals enjoy . Elisabetta is a great guide who has a lot to share about her city , she has a great personality and after spending the day with her in a small group of 8 we felt that we gained a friend

I was on a tour that included time to ourselves..well, I knew about ToursbyLocals so I booked seeing fantastic Venice at night and it fit into the timeline perfectly. I learned from past tours to see a city at night, much different than in the daytime. Elisabetta made Venice come to life with her background stories and passion for Venice, her hometown. She is a highlight of my time in Italy. She was on time and accommodating to meeting me and my friend at our hotel. I am so glad we saw Venice at night!

Most enjoyable thing we have done in Venice. Elisabetta is charming and has remarkable insight for Venice and it's people. We felt as if we had been friends a long time, she was that easy to talk to. If you have a mind to experience a pleasant evening, bring your enthusiasm with you. You will not be disappointed. It was my birthday the night we went out, and it was the best birthday I ever had! I should have booked several Bacari crawls with her for our stay. I will save that for next visit! Ciao, Paula

The best possible way to spend my first morning in Venice! I met Elisabetta at the scheduled time easily with her communication about the area and boat stops the day before, making it a comfortable endeavor from the very beginning. I was able to get a great run in the morning and some fabulous conversation with Elisabetta, all while learning about Venice's history and great places to see and things to do later in the day with my family. A perfect way to get acquainted with Venice, I highly recommend!!
