Ermanno was an excellent guide and we could not have been happoer with our tour! He was VERY knowledgeable, friendly and flexible with respect to our schedule and what we wanted to see and learn about. After the tour was over, Ermanno even took the time to walk us all the way back to our cruise ship, which was on his own time and far from where the tour ended. We would definitely recommend Ermanno to anyone who wants a fantastic guided tour through Venice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Berry ,you and your wife ..wonderful people!!!

We really enjoyed our time with Ermanno learning about Venice from a native Venetian. He has a wealth of knowledge and shared it freely with us in a fast paced tour of the city. While we enjoyed the famous sightseeing locales, our favorite part of the tour was walking through the quieter streets of the city and soaking up Ermanno's knowledge. This tour was great for an initial introduction to the city and we highly recommend it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, wonderful Family.You know now you got a real friend in Venice .
Ronald SealeUnited States
Ermanno is an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable about Venice and a pleasure to be with him. He made Venice come alive and each old building and passageway give up its secrets. We would recommend him without hesitation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Matthias !!!
Having Ermanno guide you through Venice is an absolutely terrific experience! As a native Venetian, he knows so much about his city, and loves to share it with his clients. We saw many things off the beaten path, with Ermanno providing insights along with an impish sense of humor. Next time we visit Venice, we will definitely book with him again
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much...wonderful people !!
Don HolmUnited States
Ermanno is a life long resident of Venice but he was very critical of his town. We also had to listen very carefully and look at his face to understand his english. We had requested a tour of the less touristy sites which was our mistake because what we saw was a lot of the more distressed areas rather than unique charming sections.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I appreciate your feedback, thank-you for sharing. I think you may have interpreted my passion and the honest way I explain my city in a negative way. I wanted to explain the truth about the area because I love it, I certainly did not intend for you to take it the wrong way

Ermanno was a wonderful tour guide! He showed us the Venice that the locals reside in....he was also incredibly positive in 100 degree weather!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you !!
My sister, brother-in-law and I recently had a three hour tour with Ermanno in Venice. He was the best guide! Firstly, he was a real Venetian who has lived there all his life, and secondly, he was passionate about his city and it's history! We learnt so much from him from the Jewish Ghetto district and how it got its name, the symbols over the doorways of houses, to why the gondoliers are all painted black, and the first real Venetian masks. And much more!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much !
Geri SteinUnited States
Great guide. Prompt and waiting for us as we exited the ship. Gave us wonderful insight into his city and the history of his city. The fact that he is a Venetian by birth added to the authenticity of what he had to say. Highly recommend.

Ermanno met us exactly as planned and quickly established just what we wanted to do. His knowledge of the history and the locality was fantastic and added enormously to the enjoyment of our visit to Venice. His English language was more than adequate - we learned a lot and had great fun with this truly charming Venetian.Thank you, Ermanno, too for the excellent CD of images of old Venice and your company on a great tour. Best wishes John & Juliet

Deborah FulfordUnited Kingdom
This was the very best way of getting to know about a part of Venice. Ermanno was very knowledgeable, and full of interesting information about what we were seeing - things I would otherwise have walked past without knowing. He was very kind and easy going, and made it a wonderful and fascinating couple of hours. I highly recommend a tour with him to anyone going to Venice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Deborah....I wish to meet you again in Venice .
Ermanno was there waiting for us. He is a great guide who correctly states he is not Italian but Venetian. His love for his city and its history stands out. He has a good sense of humour and gave us a great tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You !!!!

Very knowledgeable, on time and entertaining. My 17 yr old was even interested in everything Ermanno said, thats a difficult feat in itself. We learned so much and felt better to walk around on our own after as he guided us everywhere let us know where else we should check out. Thanks
