Date: Sep 10/19

Giovanna designed a custom tour for and coered exactly what we wanted to see. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and we learned a lot about Venice and Murano. The trip to Murano was special because she took us to a glass factory that she had a personal relationship with and so we really got to see and learn a lot. A great experience.

We really enjoyed our tour with Giovanna. She met us promptly and the spot was easy to find. She was very knowledgeable of all the sites, took us to some off the standard path places, and answered lots of questions for us - including giving us tips on where to get the best gondola rides. Her English was excellent. Would definitely recommend!

Giovanna was the perfect guide for us. A native of Venice, she was knowledgeable, personable, thoughtful and flexible. (And punctual!) She pointed out so many things that we never would have noticed, knew so many stories, and contoured her route and details to the things we were interested in. Highly recommended.

I and my husband had some very interesting hours with Giovanna in Venice. A perfect guide who answered our questions and gave us a very good introduction to this great place. We used her recommendations for the days we spent in Venice and we will read more about the history of the city. Thank you, Giovanna. Best Regards Siri & Giggi

Giovana is completely focus and extremely knowledgeable during the tour. She was very thorough with her explanations and she made sure we do not miss out on anything. We learnt so much during our 1 day tour with her. Keep it up Giovana. From Mr & Mrs Alex

Giovanna is wonderful! Very knowledgeable. Interesting. She took us to the out of the way places, even showed us the school she went to! Very off the beaten track. Very interesting. She is also very helpful (she helped arrange a taxi for us for later). The tour was everything I had hoped for and my daughter loved it very much and that is really what I wanted!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathleen, thank you! You and your daughter are very special people! I am happy our paths have crossed!

Giovanna was terrific. Her tour made the Accademia museum more interesting than I would have imagined. She provided insight and her knowledge of Venice and art was clearly demonstrated. She has great interpersonal and communications skills. Both I and my (lovely) wife were able to understand Giovanna clearly. Spending time with Giovanna helped increase our appreciation of what Venice has to offer. Thanks for a great tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you James, your quick understanding and your sense of humour made my time with you and your wife light and pleasant! Giovanna

Giovanna was terrific, She is a story teller that weaves in history, architecture, religion, culture to teach you with out even realizing how much you are learning. I wished we had even more time with her.
