Lucia is an amazing guide. Not only is she well versed about Venice, she is engaging, thoughtful and kind. We had a fabulous tour with her. Hitting all of her local haunts, we saw the Venice most travelers do not have the pleasure of discovering and enjoying. Don't hesitate to use Lucia as your guide. We wish you the best Lucia....

I can't begin to thank Lucia enough for the most perfect day and tour of Venice.

We absolutely loved the tour and would definitely invite Lucia back with us on our next tour of Venice.

Date: Aug 3/18

Lucia was a lovely tour guide and we enjoyed it very much. The boat ride gave us more than the typical landmark sites. We left with an understanding that Venice is not just one island, but a collection of islands with different identities and industries. The glass works demonstration and the lace making shop were excellent additions to the tour. Lucia did a wonderful job. Highly reLucia commend her.

Date: Aug 2/18

Lucia provided a very informative and interesting tour of Murano and Burano. She was friendly and welcoming the entire duration of the tour. She stayed with us right to the end to ensure we were back on our cruise ship, which she most certainly did not have to do. She also managed to squeeze in a brief tour of Torccello. Would certainly recommend Lucia for any tour you may have in the Venice area.

This tour was amazing. We were able to get away from the crowds and see parts of Venice that we wouldn't have otherwise. Lucia was incredibly knowledgeable about her home city and delivered the tour in a very organized manner. All of our food stops were authentic and delicious. Definitely, our best experience in Venice.

Our guide, Lucia, was charming and delightful. She led us on a wonderful historical/food tour of the Jewish Ghetto and surrounding neighborhood, and she was incredibly informative. We enjoyed hearing about the history of the Venetian Jewish community, as well as trying out different foods. All of the places Lucia took us to were fantastic in their own way, and we loved that she clearly has cultivated relationships with many restaurant owners. An excellent tour and guide!

Lucia was great with my family. She had purchased tickets in advance to expedite the admission process. She was able to add-on last minute wishes to attend a glass blowing exhibition which was the highlight for my kids.

Our family of 5 loved our tour with Lucia! My adult children are passionate about history, preservation and authentic food experiences, and had been wanting to do a cicchetti tour of Venice for years. Lucia was able to provide all of that and more during this tour. Her passion for her city was evident and she was able to show us so many hidden gems and quiet, beautiful areas. The food we had was exactly what we were hoping for and we learned so much.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Gina for your nice comment! Very sweet of you :) It was a real pleasure to meet you all! I am delighted that you enjoyed our tour. Hope to see you again in Venice. Best regards, Lucia

We have been to Venice many times on our own but Lucia's tour made us feel like it was our first time. Gardening and Italian Renaissance art are two of our hobbies and Lucia's knowledge of both was amazing. As a Venetian she made the enchanted city even more interesting with her enthusiasm, insights and advice. We were sorry to see the tour end and will adjust our future trips to coincide with her availability for another tour.
