We so enjoyed our tour of Vincenza architecture with Deborah on Oct 4, 2017. She is extremely knowledgeable and able to present the diverse styles of Vincenza architecture in context that was easy to understand. She also graciously answered our many questions and it was obvious to us that she loves the topic of Italy's architecture and continues to be an eager learner about the topic. We would highly recommend this tour, with Deborah, to all travelers.

We could not have wished for a better tour guide than Deborah. Having been born in Venice, she knew the history first-hand, and knew the city like the back of her hand. We made our way off of the main tourist paths and into the heart of Venice. Highly recommend Deborah. 5 stars out of 5.

Benjamin GriffithMississippi, 38655, United States
Deborah was the perfect guide for a very personalized walk through the many hidden and surprising sites, historical landmarks and simply beautiful reminders of what has kept pulling us back into the heart of Venice. She is a classically trained, pragmatically oriented specialist in this niche area of up-close-and-personal travel and introduced us to breathtaking locales and hard-to-find treasures that we had only read about. We felt her love for this city and were able to reach out and touch its beauty.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ben and Kathy, as I Always say, the success of a tour is a combination of soul and passion. It has been a soul harmony between you and me since the beginning. You are a wonderful couple, open-minded and still capable to enjoy and be surprised. It was a pleasure and an Honor to spend these days with you.
Benjamin GriffithMississippi, 38655, United States
Deborah gave us the perfect re-introduction to a Venice that we had only breezed by in earlier years, taking us to special sites, historical landmarks and beautiful vistas from the perspective of a nighttime cruise through the canals of this gem of the Italian Renaissance. Her familiarity with Venice as a native and her university education equipped her with the technical skills to open up Venice at night and make it more meaningful to us. Her love of this city and its rich heritage was deep and sincere.
Alan RothUnited States
Deborah was an amazing guide. She had in-depth knowledge and was very engaging. She kept it interesting and upbeat. Highly recommend!

We had a terrific tour experience with Deborah! She was sensitive to our interests, extremely informed and engaging. We not only saw many things we would have otherwise missed, but understood so much more from the historical and social context Deborah provided.

Ralph LantzUnited States
What an awesome way to end our visit to Venice. Actually I wished we would have used Deborah at the start of out visit. The tour of the hidden treasures of Venice was perfect. We got a great feel for the real Venice and all of the local neighborhoods. We saw sites I know we would have never discovered on our own or with a large tour group. Her local knowledge is incredible. Her art and history expertise is astounding. Every question we asked she answered. She sets a great pace that is easy to follow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Please Ralph, remember we just visited one district....you still have other five...next time you come.... thanks.
Ralph LantzUnited States
Deborah's local knowledge was of invaluable help on this tour. In my experience something always goes wrong on these tours. If the guide is really great they know how to make things happen without missing a beat. That happened on this tour and she pulled it off. Thanks Deborah.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! I also had a nice time with you all, I felt like in a family tour.
Ralph LantzUnited States
Great tour of the city. Deborah took us to all the must see attractions of Padua for the time we had. Her knowledge of art and history is impressive. Set an easy, steady pace. We didn't feel hurried.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ralph.

We spent a week in venice and had the pleasure of Deborah as our guide for our tour of Verona. I have travelled extensively and taken many guided tours and she is simply the best I have experienced. She is extremely knowledgable about the art in the two cities and a joy to spend the day with. She organized both tours and made all the arrangements ahead of time. It couldn't have been easier. She is a true professional. The highlight of our tour was San Zeno in Verona. I would highly recommend Deborah.
