Silvia is very knowledgeable tourguide, she gave us a lot of historical information not only about Jewish Gheto , but also about Venice. Even with some light local accent we understood everything and will have good memories about Venezia and local people.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

Silvia N is extremely knowledgeable of Venitian history. We would have liked to move more around the square or city as she gave us the history of Venice. The first 35 minutes were all while we were standing still in St. Mark's Square which was tough on our senior legs. We did mention this to her several times. Perhaps I should have customized our tour or taken a different one. However, there is no doubt that she knows Venice and its history.

TBH, my family weren't that enthralled with this tour but I loved it. Perhaps it had something to do with having one of the best ever meals at the Yeshiva restaurant, Gam Gam. Damn! The best falafel I've ever had (vegans, so well catered for)...and of course, the historical magnitude of this tour is not to be underrated.

The islands tour was the favourite in our family. Murano and the glass are Bellissimo and Burano just oozes old world charm. An absolute must if you visit Venezia, and having Silvia's local expertise rounds out the experience. Love love love! x

What's not to love about Venezia! But having a local to guide us through this incredible city makes the Venice experience all the more special. Silvia was incredibly knowledgeable, and mindful we were travelling with a 6-year-old! She kept us moving and motivated but all with a relaxed feel. And if you DON'T take her advice on where to eat (we're vegan BTW) you are doing yourself a disservice. Thank you, dear Silvia! xx

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Jannifer! I really enjoyed the company of your family and the girls were lovely! Hope you had a wonderful time on the Alps and wait for you to come back soon to maybe visit together Venice surroundings. Thank you for your words. Big hug to you all

Silvia was an outstanding and well informed tour guide. She was prompt and well organized; and led our tour with an excellent mixture of Venetian history culture; and, importantly, food and drink. Silvia was friendly and very attentive to the needs of the 10 family members on our tour, ready to change topic and focus to accommodate the needs of our group. It was an outstanding introduction to our week in Venice, and I would recommend her tour without reservation to all travelers to this magical city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Barbara! It has been a great pleasure for me to meet you all and be part of your memories of Venice. Ciao!

What a fabulous introduction to Venice we received through Silvia's eyes! We really enjoyed our tour of the hidden Venice narrow alleys and her detailed explanation of the Campo's! Her attention to detail and knowledge of Saint Mark's church and Doge's Palace was amazing! We highly recommend her as a guide as you will not be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lisa! It was a pleasure spending time with you all.

Sylvia was very knowledgeable about Venice and obviously loves her city. She was personable and even offered to meet us at our hotel and ended the tour there as well, which was helpful being that Venice is a labyrinthine place and we had just arrived there. The tour was extremely interesting and everyone enjoyed it. I would give it 5 stars, except that some in our party of 4 could not hear her sometimes as she usually directed her speaking directly to one person near her and some areas were noisy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eric thank you for the review. I will take your feedback on board for future tours.

We really enjoyed our tour around Venice. The boat ride was great and gave us a wonderful view of Venice from a different perspective. The gondola ride was a good experience for our grandchildren. Our walking Tour provided an historical overview of Venice and its history. Silvia was very knowlegible and painted a great picture of Venice's history. Our trip through the Fish Market was informative. Overall a great experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dennis!

Very comprehensive tour. Silvia was very flexible. We decided to add a stop during the day and she was able to add it in and still cover the original plan. She was also a wealth of information regarding other things to see and helping us navigate the ferries after we finished our tour with her. Great tour! Highly recommend! Laura M

Silvia was a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide, bringing her attention to details to everything. Her communication and people skills are excellent, and she has some very creative ways in helping children learn about history! (We brought our 8 year old daughter & 13 year old son along for the tour!) She was able to tell us the history about the smallest thing in full details. Silvia is not only very experienced, but also a very perceptive tour guide. I highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Judy, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to meet your lovely family and explore the Venetian lagoon together. A big hug from your new friend in Venice. Grazie
