Tour: #247295, The Palladian Villas in the Veneto, Vicenza, Veneto, Italy    view tour
Date: Oct 8/18

Ruben gave us a once in a lifetime 6 day tour of Vicenza and the Palladian villas. My wife and I had many specific requests which he made possible and then offered us one or more additional adventures each day. His choices were incredibly intuitive. We saw 14 Palladio villas and his in town sites within Vicenza as well as 5 nonPalladio villas. Ruben is both very knowledgeable and personable. In 50 years of travel I have never had a better guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, it was my very pleasure to show you Vicenza and the Palladian villas. It was great to have met you and Carol. Hope to see you again soon.

Tour: #247295, The Venetian Villas along the Brenta canal, Padua, Veneto, Italy    view tour
Date: Sep 21/18

This is a very specializes tour, as it focuses on a fairly narrow segment of the region's history. If you are interested in the Palladian villas, and the Venetian villas, you will really enjoy this. Ruben took us to see three villas, each very different from the other. He does a very nice job of putting each in its historical context.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Larry, Thank you very much. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour.

Date: Sep 5/18

This was a perfect tour experience with our guide - Ruben - who was knowledgeable and personable and who spoke excellent English. We got an in depth tour of Palladio's La Rotunda as well as his theatre and other Vincenza buildings. Enjoyed an al fresco lunch with him, as well as an hour each way in the car when he picked us right on time at the vaporetto stop in Venice and delivered us back to Venice after the tour. We can't speak highly enough about this informative and enjoyable tour. Drew and Anna

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was a pleasure to meet you and spend time together in Vicenza.

Ruben was a very good guide. In particular, his introduction about the Scrovegni Chapel and his guidance when we were in there (especially in view of the very limited time that is available) was excellent and this was the main purpose for our tour. He was also very helpful and flexible - suggesting where we could meet and providing good recommendations about where we could eat. He is very knowledgeable with a relaxed manner.

This was an excellent tour of 4 Brenta Canal villas, with wonderful narration about their history and families. Touring with Reuben gave us the chance to really enjoy the day, learn a great deal and not worry about the logistics of driving and locating these sites. We highly recommend this tour, one which has been on our bucket list for a long time!

It was a pleasure to meet Reuben and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. He was very knowledgeable and informative and we certainly learned a lot about a city he knows very well. All his arrangements were perfect - from meeting us in a timely manner to obtaining advance tickets for the Scrovegni Chapel. We covered a lot of ground and feel that we had a good first introductory tour of this interesting city.

Tour: #8261, Vicenza: the City of Palladio, Vicenza, Veneto, Italy    view tour
Date: May 22/18

Ruben was a good guide.He took me to many sites,where I found his commentary brief and solely oriented toward the specific building with little comment on the social,Family ,economic,political or cultural impact on Palladio 's life,unless I asked questions.Had I not asked him to take me to the Rotunda,I would not have seen it.Once I asked he used his car to take me.Clearly the highlight of any Palladio tour.He did leave me at a restaurant where I had one of the best meals of my month long trip

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tony asked me and I told him about religion, culture, roman history, the Renaissance, about universe and Copernicus, about local economy in Vicenza in the XVI century. All this and more besides all the palladian buildings. 3 hours are a short time.Tony probably didn't read that villa La Rotonda is not included in my walking tour of the city. Anyway, I asked him, at the beginning of the tour if he was interested to. So I took him to the villa even if not included. I'm glad he enjoyed his meal.

Ruben was an excellent guide through the city of Vicenza, taking into consideration the interests of each of our party. He adapted his tour to interest the engineers, historian, artist and Italophiles among us. Perhaps he has conducted this tour many times, but he was as enthusiastic to share his knowledge with us as he might have been the first time. Having Ruben guide us was like having a good, knowledgable friend show us around, as though he really cared that we enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! Hope to see you again in Vicenza!

Ruben is a very good guide. He has considerable knowledge of architecture, art and history. His knowledge extends beyond Vicenza and was thereby able to put into context the work of Palladio with what was happening elsewhere in Italy at the time. His language skills are superior and he answered all our questions completely and clearly. We highly recommend Ruben and will contact him the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. Let me know when you are again in the area.

Ruben crated a special tour for us since we wanted to see both Vicenza and Padua in one day -- a somewhat tall order. This included sights in both cities and a trip outside Vicenza to see one of the Palladian villas, the Villa Rotunda. He was knowledgeable, pleasant, and agreeable to modifying things as we went.

This tour guide is absolutely fantastic. He is friendly and helpful. He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the works of Palladio and the decorations and frescoes in the Palladian villas. He took his time to show and explain everything at a pace which suited us and took us to two additional villas which were not included in the original tour. His knowledge of the subject matter of the Giambattista Tiepolo frescoes in the Villa Valmorana at Vicenza was breathtaking.

Ruben was excellent guide - friendly, knowledgeable, good English. We took train Venice to Padua (v easy), met R at station. Walked to Scrovegni Chapel (R had bought tickets), thru old city to St Anthony Church, back to car park near station. 5 km walking - wear comfort shoes. After lunch drove to 3 villas between Padua and Venice. Villa Foscari La Malcontenta excellent. Villa Pisano not great. Let R select villas - ask to visit historic ones BUILT by Palladio even if it means more driving.

The tour was excellent - took us to all of the sites. One can do them on your own, but Ruben brought a good perspective and made getting around the town very easy. He is very knowledgeable - at the Olympic Theatre he was able to have the guard give us a demonstration. The tour is well worth it. He gave a lot of helpful recommendations that helped us with the rest of the time in Vicenza.

We were looking forward to a private architectural tour of Palladio's work on our recent family vacation as part of a father's day gift to my husband, an architect, who wanted more than the typical touristy fare. Ruben was great and customized the tour extend it an extra hour, pick us up at our hotel instead of the train station, and made stops along the way based on our interest. We had the Villa Rotonda pretty much to ourselves before heading into town for other architectural gems.

We really enjoyed our tour of Padua and the Scrovegni chapel with Ruben a few weeks ago. Ruben was very responsive before the tour when I had questions about our meeting point, etc. and he met us as planned at the track where our train from Venice arrived. He is very knowledgeable and pleasant, and we learned a great deal about Padua - including the University, the Jewish Quarter, and of course the Scrovegni chapel. We would highly recommend him!!

The highlight of our trip to Italy and the Adriatic! And it was due to Rubin's willingness to share his deep knowledge of Padua with us. He met us at the train station and walked with us to all the sights on our list, continuously sharing what he knew (which was amazing!) about lovely Padua -- archetectural, cultural, social, and much more. His brilliant tour of the Scrovegni Chapel in a very limited time (forced by the officials of the Chapel) was masterful. Another perfect ToursByLocals experience!

Walkable city is the best experience, at least for me and my group. His advice added to the beauty of the city of Vicenza and its people gave an impression of singilar wealth.

The 3 hour tour seemed like 1 hour, which is always a good sign. The pace was perfect, nice and Relaxing and we had time to take in our surroundings. A very personable guide.

From a group of 11 people. We expected much more from this guide. We had him for 5 hours but he did not do a lot of talking. We spent way too long sitting for lunch. Some of us found it difficult to comprehend his English. He sat and sent us shopping for the end of the trip. So not the worst but certainly not the best.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry you didn't get what you expected but I think I did my best. I just tried to show you the most interesting places and to tell you the most interesting things about them. Even after 5 hours I kept talking with some of you while the rest of you were doing shopping, as you mentioned you wanted to do. If you wanted something different you could have asked for it, I was always available.

Ruben was punctual, knowledgable and very interesting. He also told us where to eat dinner and it was great. A few times we had a hard time understanding him, but then I don't think you can expect anyone to be accent free in English when their mother tongue us Spanish and he lives in Italy giving tours in English! We loved that Ruben's wife is from Hurst, around the corner from Dallas, our home! He's even visiting at Christmas and we thought how cool if we could see him again! It's a small world really.
