Our family of five with kids ages 10-14 spent a lovely afternoon with Daniela! She is a wealth of knowledge as she is from Venice. She showed us wonderful views and really made the tour of the Doge palace interesting. She also engaged with the kids. We recommend Daniela highly!

A wonderful tour of Vicenza!!! Daniela was great!!! She has a comprehensive knowledge of Vicenza, the local area and Italian history in general.

Jena VasconcellosUnited States
The four of us were enchanted by Daniela and her knowledge of the city. I chose her from all the guides on the site because of her emphasis on art and history--the important aspects of Venice to us. She was amazing in being able to answer all our many questions. The pace was perfect and we got to see the highlights, plus have lots of information on the growth of Venice and its doge system of government.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much! What a wonderful day with you and your friends. You all are extremely knowledgeable, interested travellers and open to discussion about historical events. You gave me so much satisfaction, thanks so much, I hope to tour you all again somewhere in my region!

Daniela Z was a GREAT tour guide!!! We had a group of 10 adults and 2 children. She was very knowledgeable and answered all of our 6yr old's inquisitive questions. She was considerate towards every one in our group, making sure we were all together and ready to move on throughout the tour. You can tell she loves what she does. We would absolutely recommend her to others! We would have loved to have her join us for the Florence and Rome legs of our trip as well! Daniela THANK YOU for a very enjoyable day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for those kind words! I'm really happy you and your folks enjoyed Venice with me, you are so nice people and the kids are simply amazing! It was an absolute pleasure for me. Safe onwards travels in Italy, I hope to see you again maybe on a tour in Vicenza next time! Ciao, Daniela
Daniela was immediately welcoming and warm.She was open to any tour requests we had.She gave us a wonderful informative afternoon and lots of suggestions for the remainder of our Venice stay. I would highly recommend her for anyone wanting a knowledgeable guide who makes a traveller welcome to her city John and Annelies
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John and Annelies, what a pleasure for me to show you some of the less known areas of Venice, so full of curiosities and charme! I hope you are enjoying your tour in Italy and I wish you all the best, Daniela
Michael BinfordUnited States
Just finished an all-day tour of Vicenza with Daniela. She was wonderful! Very knowledgeable about history, architecture, and art. She answered all our questions and was a pleasing person with whom to spend time. You could not ask for a better guide! Her knowledge of the town was encyclopedic. She loves her home town, and her love shines. We recommend her without reservation! I wish I could do entire tour again, think I retained half of what she shared, but that half will have me dreaming of Palladio.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael and Nancy, you've been extraordinary guests and it's been such a pleasure to spend some time with you and show you around my marvellous region. I wish you all the best and hope to meet you again on another journey :-) Daniela
Brandy HopkinsUnited States
Daniela was a phenomenal guide! We couldn't find any tours starting at the time we needed but I contacted Daniela and she agreed to help us out! She gave us so much amazing information about the places we visited and showed us around Venice afterwards! We had an amazing time with Daniela and I would recommend her as a guide to anyone 100%!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brandy, thank you so much for your nice words, we spent such a nice time together in Venice and you've been so interested people! I hope your holiday in the rest of Italy was as lovely as you had imagined, I wish you all the best for your life and hope to meet you again...who knows! Ciao, Daniela
Timothy VierlingUnited States
Daniela was beyond fantastic! She took her time with us and showed us so many details of Doge's Palace and St Mark's and even gave us a walking tour to the Rialto bridge, again pointing out numerous details along the way. We know tomorrow where we are heading as she showed us on a map numerous things to do and places to see. The message is she was super personable and really cared about us and her presentation. Hope to be back and use her services again! Thanks Daniela!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Timothy for your nice words!! It has been a pleasure to meet you both, I really hope to see you again when you will come back. There is so much to see still in Venice and the Veneto! Best regards, Daniela
Paul T.United States
wonderful personalized tour Daniela designed a tour just for us, starting by meeting us near the cruise ship as we didn't know our way around Venezia. She spoke impeccable English (and is fluent in several more), could answer all our questions, arranged a private water taxi ride around some back canals after we took a vaporetto (water bus) to St. Mark's Square to check out the Doge's Palace and Bridge of Sighs. She was very informative, and spent much more time with us than I had anticipated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, thank you very much for your nice words, I'm very happy I've left some good memories of your trip in Venice! All the best, Daniela
Daniela gave us great stories behind each important place we visited, she was very kind and fun. Took us to the more local spots so we enjoyed our experience from a different point of view. She even go out of her way to take us to a very fine restaurant with a more local cuisine. Thank you for this wonderful experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for that lovely review, I had a great time with you and enjoyed our tour around the islands of Venice! Hope the tour afterwards was a great success for you, best wishes!

Our guide was Daniela Z and she was terrific. She had a wonderful command of so much history and really made the Doge Museum and St Marks Basilica come alive. We were very fortunate to have our travel planner, Dale Arroyo with Cruise Planners, recommend Daniela. This tour was definitely a 5+ on a scale of 1 to 5.

Steven BaughmanUnited States
Wish there was 6 stars for Daniela. We took 6 TBL tours in Italy and all were good. Daniela was the best however. Experienced, patient, got us through some back doors and put together a ending to our tour by small motorboat rather than walking as we had a member who had great difficulty in walking. Flexible and spoke great English.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely review Stephen! It was my absolute pleasure to tour with you and your jolly family along Venice, I loved my day! I really hope to meet you again in the future, hugs, Daniela
Linda BeutelUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, I'm delighted that you all had a good tour, it was a pleasure to show you around my wonderful city. Thank you for your review, I really appreciate it. Very best and warmest regards, Daniela
Paul AustinUnited States
I would rate Daniela a 10+, she is one of the best guides that we have had in over 65cruises and many private guides. The things that made Daniela special was that she made our family of 7 feel like family, her knowledge of Venice is remarkable, after a wonderful waterside lunch we were treated to a private glass blowing demonstration, then off to the gondola adventure, Daniela waited until we were through and guided us to our hotel. I encourage you to engage Daniela as your guide in Venice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, we had 2 special days together, Venice offers always some surprise for sure, but it was you and your nice family that made for 2 outstanding tours! Take care to you all, I hope to meet you again in the future! Cheers, Daniela
Daniela was absolutely DELIGHTFUL.. So passionate about her home town, and her knowledge, history of Venice and little personal stories were truly fascinating.. What a perfect introduction to Venice.. five stars is not enough to rate this tour... LOVED IT
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jacinta, I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed the tour in Venice so much and I really appreciate your kind words. It's been such a pleasure showing you around and so gratifying to know that you enjoyed yourselves - it's been a great day! Happy travels in Italy and hope we meet again :-) Daniela

Lindy CuellUnited Kingdom
What can I say, the weather conditions were a little testing, but Daniela more than made up for any shortcomings on that front. She was amazing. So kind, friendly and extremely knowledgable. She spoke perfect English and brought everything alive for my friend and I. I can only thank her for making the whole experience truly magical and something we will never forget. She also tailored it to our interests and requests which was marvellous. Thank you so much Daniela, it was a pleasure to meet you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words Lindy! I'm delighted you appreciated your time with me. I so enjoyed being with you and Christine and hope that the rest of your stay in Venice was wonderful! Wishing you well, Daniela
