Abigail is one of those rare people who seems like she trained her whole life to be a guide of Venice. She is warm, very friendly; and very enthusiastic about the city of Venice where she was born, and about modern art in particular. She speaks impeccable English (mom is English).We had an excellent experience of the Peggy Guggenheim modern art museum. She explained concepts of modern art we've always found to be difficult to understand or appreciate. Abigail is superb and everything you'd want in a guide

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. & Mrs. Witt, I am speechless, thank you from my heart!! I am so happy you enjoyed our journey discovering modern art and Peggy’s incredibile collection and home. I hope to see you again and I wish you a wonderful stay in Italy! Kind regards, Abigail

Excellent guide with knowledge and personality. She went out of her way to make sure our tour was perfect and got us to the airport on time. I had expressed to her that I thought all water taxi's were the mahogany beauties you see in the movies. The next day Abigail surprised us with such a boat. Absolutely recommend her all the way. PS English is perfect

Abigail C. gave us a tour of the palace & the Basilica today. She was so knowledgeable & friendly. She did a perfect balance of history & interesting facts about current Venetian life/culture. She taught us so much in 2 hours & held our interest the whole time. She also knew as tourists, we would want to take pictures, & she was more than accommodating. We highly recommend Abigail as a friendly & knowledgeable local tour guide!

Abigail was amazing! She met us promptly at the train station and organized a wonderful two hour tour by boat and foot of Venice! Her enthusiasm and love for her home was evident and she took the time to show us all the important points taking into account the limitations of some of our group members. She knew some of the locals, recommended were to eat (that was not a tourist trap), and even showed us some of the authentic cookies from Venice! I would recommend her most highly for any tour of Venice!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cristina, Thank you so much for your feedback! I am so happy you enjoyed the tour, I hope you will come back to Venice again and see other lovely parts of the city! Kind regards, Abigail

Abigail was the best tour guide we have ever had. She was smart, witty, fun and very knowledgeable. She was able to give us information in a way that was interesting and relatable not just to us but to our daughters, as well, who are teenagers. We were all smitten by Abigail and wished we could have her accompany us in all our trips for the rest of our lives!

Abigail was phenomenal! I highly recommend her! We had never been on an official tour in Venice. This was our 5th time in Venice and Abigail made it so worth it. Her English is perfect so there are no problems understanding her. She is so proud to be a Venetian and it shows! She spoke with such passion and we learned so much from her! She went above and beyond to give us an incredible tour even on such a crummy day where it was raining constantly. We will be using her as our guide when we return!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Munguia, Thank you so much for your kind words, they mean so much to me! It was a pleasure meeting you and showing you around the two most important sites of Venice. I really enjoyed sharing the history of my unique city! I hope to see you again in the near future! Kind regards. Abigail

We would recommend Abigail for any tour in Venice- she is smart, personable, extremely knowledgable (especially in art history) and walking around with her is a great deal of fun! We were only sorry that she was booked the following day or we would have happily explored with her for a second time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Lerner, Thank you so much for your feedback! I really enjoyed sharing both the history and everyday aspects of my life as a local. I also had fun showing you around Venice. I hope to see again in the near future! Kind regards, Abigail.
