This was our favorite activity so far. GIovanna, our local guide, met ALL our expectations and surpassed them. She planned a tour for us that not only included the major sites, she threw in some amazing surprises that left us in awe. If you book Giovanna for this tour, you are in for an amazing experience in Murano. GIovanna, thank you for an amazing time...we will not forget you or Murano!!!!!!!
Giovanna is a delightful, and always smiling guide. We spent a wonderful day with Giovanna exploring Venice- it's carnival so the crowds were crazy- she was fabulous and showed us the main sites and then whisked is away to quieter areas as requested!! She was flexible, knowledgeable, fun and charming- highly recommend this lovely guide in Venice!!

Giovanna was a delight! She took us where we wanted to go and was just a lot of fun. She's so well educated and shared her knowledge in such a nice way!
On a recent trip to Venice we had the pleasure of being guided by Giovanna G. Of course we did all the tourist sites but she also took us to parts of the city where there were not so many tourists. She is very knowledgeable, and delightful to spend time with. The only thing I would suggest is if you want to visit the Jewish Ghetto don't do it on the same day as a city tour, as Giavanna suggested but we didn't listen! It needs its own time, not rushed. Giavanna is a great guide, we loved our day.

Giovanna was terrific! She accommodated our change of schedule and was so gracious to our small group. She shared her knowledge and love of Venice and took us to parts we never would have seen. She's the best!

We had a wonderful day with Giovanna. She really knew the area well. She has a delightful spirit, and was able to educate us about the area we are staying in and also about Venice. Really enjoyed exploring Murano island and seeing the beautiful.

Giovanna was an excellent local tour guide. She is knowledgeable about the region and history. She was patient with us, taking time for a few side trips to the fish market and the view from the top of the Fondaco dei Tedeschi and helping with my Italian. Giovanna extended the tour for us while we selected and negotiated some custom glassware in Murano.

We really liked Giovanna. She met us at the train station and helped us to our hotel. The visit to Murano was a highlight. She met all our needs for the tour and are very satisfied.
Rebecca BaergenUnited States
Giovanna met us at our hotel and gave us a personalized tour of Venice and Murano Island. It was extremely hot that day and she was very accommodating in trying to keep us in cooler areas and in the shade. We had a pleasant tour of parts of Venice before going to Murano island where we had an awesome experience with watching the masters in glass art. We had a really wonderful day and I would recommend her as a tour guide with enthusiasm and without reservation.

Giovanna met us (family of 4) early in the morning and, from the moment our tour started, she filled us with fascinating information about Venice, its history, culture, people, geography, future. Her knowledge seemed endless as was her energy. Per our request, we were able to experience much of Venice without ever getting caught up in the Venice-tourist crowds. Traveling for us is about exploring, and Giovanna allowed us to discover Venice in a way most never will.

lots of walking but we saw the major "must see" things in Venice. Giovanna was excellent... well organized, spoke English well, VERY knowledgeable and personable.
Giovanna has been like a good friend to us. We spent with her the most amazing 6 hours in Venice. She was very accommodating and flexible with her tour. She knows her city and she knows how to convey this knowledge to her visitors. She was like a good friend whom one hasn't seen in a while and then met up with in one of the most original cities in Italy. She was a pleasure to be around.

I booked the tour on very short notice and was not sure if I could get a tour. But Giovanna was fast in response and flexible to meet our needs. She is highly qualified, patient, nice, responsible and very passionated to her profession. She is so far our best guide in all different countries.
Michael TobeyUnited States
Giovanna responded to a relatively late request to set up a customized tour for me and my wife and she responded in a big way. Great suggestions based on our interests, efficient use of our time and a engaging personality combined to give us another top rated Tours by Local experience. I recommend Giovanni to any visitor to Venice whether it be a first time visitor or a returning visitor.
Tracy AllardCoppell, TX, United States
This tour gave us exactly what we were looking for; an overview of Venice so that we could better decide how to spend the rest of our time in the city. Giovanna was a lovely host with excellent English and was a pleasure to spend the day with. She was very knowledgeable about local history and art and gave us recommendations for other things to do over the next 2 days we had in Venice based on what we showed interest in during our time together, and she was spot on!
