Best introductory tour of our trip. Before the walking tour, I was indifferent about a visit to Venice. But after the 2 hours, I had a new found appreciation for Venice and must say the best city we visited. A BIG thanks goes to Isabella for making it so fantastic.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Robert! Yoyrs is the first rafting of the New Year. And i couldn't hope in a better commenti. Thanks to you. A big hug to you and your family Isa

We braved Venice in one day and Isa was wonderful! Her passion, love and pride for Venice is obvious. Despite the recent floods in Venice and unusually high acqua alta in Venice on the day of our tour, Isa professionally managed our itinerary such that we managed to get everything we wanted to see and do during our day in Venice. I would happily recommend Isa for anyone who is planning to visit the beautiful city of Venice, its canals, lagoons and surrounding islands.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much and enjoy your cruise! It was a pleasure to tour you.

Isabella was a wonderful guide. We walked all over Venice. She showed us the Rialto bridge and walked us thru the curving streets and into shops and thru the market which was amazing and huge. I've never seen fish so fresh. The choice of veggies! She took us to a private showing at the murano glass factory! Beautiful! Unfortunately we missed our gondola ride, our fault. She took us to the San marks square and tour of the basilica and told us so much about what we were seeing.. she was such a treat!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrea Thanks so much for your flattering commenti. I hope to see back in my town. Sure you enjoyed the rest of your cruise. Best Isa

Isabella was an excellent guide. It was so nice to learn so much in the short time we had in Venice. Especially enjoyed the skip the line for St. Mark's and her knowledge of the church. Highly recommend this tour!

We enjoyed our tour very very much . Isabella is so friendly and not only told us the history of Art in the Doge but also very much brought it to life with human and political stories about venice and its historical characters. We had a very memorable time with Isabella and can thoroughly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tina Thanks so much to all of you. It was my pleasure to tour in my town. Isa

We got to Venice the day before our tour with Isabelle. In a very short time she made us feel much more at home in Venice. We loved the fish markets and the fact that she took us to many different areas. When we travel we always use tours by locals and always have a great experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy Thanks so much! It was a pleasure to be your tours by Locals guide in Venice. Isa

We had a fabulous time in Venice with Isabella. Her love of this beautiful city is very evident. She was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. At every turn on our journey, she provided information and insights that we would never have been able to find on our own. Everything about our day was enjoyable! We highly recommend taking a trip with her! You won't be disappointed!

Isabel was a fantastic guide. She answered all our needs. Was pleasant . Took care of everything and shared her city with us pointing out restaurants, sights, transportation and delightful in her presentation to us. Highly recommended. Would use her again. Arranged everything so we did not have to think about anything. Traveled with a 17 year old and 16 year old. They both enjoyed being with Isabel. Enjoy

Tour: Padua and Palladio's villas, Venice, Veneto, Italy
Date: Aug 17/19

A custom day trip for my two from Venice to Padua and two of Palladio's villas: Villa Emo and Villa Barbaro/Maser. Isabella shared her deep knowledge of history, architecture, and art in a friendly, interesting way. In Padua, we saw the splendid, other-worldly frescos of Giotto at the Scrovegni Chapel as well as the Orto Botanico (the oldest surviving botanical garden in Europe), the University, and the old city center and market. Convenient, comfortable van, courteous, flexible. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to the two of you, dear Marta! It was a great day also for me. I forgot to give you the tickets of the Scrovegni chapel. Maybe you need the receipt. I can leave them at your hotel today, if you wish. Hope to see you again in town with Virginia/ginger. Please, check at your convenience Valsanzibio garden in the Euganean hills. Isa

Isabella B was outstanding. She knew the local history the little place and the people. My wife is Gluten free and she handled that with skill letting us taste a variety of excellent items and seeing the sights we would have missed. I'd book with Isa again.

This was the second tour that we booked with Isabella and it was incredible as well! Our family of 4, traveling with 2 teenagers, had the most wonderful time on the Islands' Tour. Our tour started with Isa picking us up at our hotel in a beautiful boat that had an area in the back where we could sit and take in the incredible views of the Grand Canal, Torcello, Burano and Murano. We could easily hear Isa sharing details over the boat's microphone. She shared interesting facts and made the day so fun

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again Connie! A big hug to everybody. Isa

Isabella was wonderful! She was very responsive and easy to work with in planning our off-the-beaten path walking tour of Venice. She incorporated our requests and offered suggestions in the planning of our customized tour. We are a family of four with two teenagers and she made the waking tour fun, interesting and educational for all of us. Isa is incredibly knowledgable and it was a pleasure to have her as our private guide!

To say that our day with our TBL guide Isabella, was fabulous would be an total understatement. It was a gorgeous few days in Venice! Isabella went above and beyond with our family on our private tour Tour title: Venice Highlights: all you must see in ONE tour. We were truly sorry to say good-bye to her. She had made us feel that we truly had shared a bit of her culture and her home. BEST EVER!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao the Greens! It was my pleasure to tour you around and very happy everything went all right with the early transfer. I hope also ti see you back here. Now is so hot... More humid than last week... A presto Isa

Highly recommend this tour. Way better than a gondola ride. We saw the entire city by boat, not just a fraction by walking or by gondola. We hired our guide for 2 days, and so glad we did. She was amazing. Would use her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And I would use you again as clients :) Arrivederci

Isa was fantastic. Her insights about Venice in general and St. Marks in particular were truly fantastic. Plus, she was incredibly patient with our littlest tour members (a 4 year old boy and a 7 year old girl) and modified our itinerary on the fly when they started to lag a bit. My only regret is that we weren't in Venice longer and could use her again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Richard! Hope to see you and your beautiful family again in Venice. Isa
