Lucrezia was amazing! It was so easy to customize the tour for our specific requests and she went above and beyond making all the arrangements. She has incredible knowledge and a fabulous personality. She did not rush us at all and it was a pleasure learning about Venice through her eyes. I highly recommend her!!!

We were a group of 8 people on the tour (6 adults and 2 teenagers), with Lucrezia D as our guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. She was flexible with the itinerary and helpful with providing information and suggestions with the rest of our stay. She went over the time of our tour to allow us to shop and eat. She even walked us back to the train station afterwards. We would all highly recommend this tour to get the most out of your visit to Venice!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your feedback Lori! Glad you enjoyed our time together, I did too!:) Lucrezia

We absolutely loved the Gondola yard tour with Lucrezia. Lucrezia is such a delightful guide who took us to many interesting "off the beaten path" parts of Venice and showed us many things we would otherwise have missed. This was my wife's favourite tour so far and she managed to cater for our whole family, including our 11 year old daughter. I would definitely recommend a tour with Lucrezia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Paul! Your review really made my day! Best, Lucrezia

What a wonderful, charming and eloquent guide Lucrezia is. She had a perfect communication style in her emails and in her spoken English. She adapted her talk to suit our group, answered all questions and made sure we had plenty of information. She is a perfect advocate for Venice and went out of her way to help us with advice and recommendations. We very much appreciated having her help on our first full day in the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much again Jacqui!! It’s been a pleasure for me to show you around my city and I’m looking forward to meeting you again the next time you visit Venice! XX Lucrezia

We loved the tour. It was fun and informative. We feel that we have learned much about Venice from how the water works to the meaning behind the Venetian flag. Thoroughly worth the money.

We went on a Venice tour with Lucrezia on October 10, 2019. Her English is perfect and although we have been to Venice numerous times we learned a lot of new interesting things. She is enthusiastic and exited about her city. She gave us a number of restaurant recommendations and tips that were very valuable. We definitely recommend Lucrezia and will happily use her in future trips.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Paul! It’s been a pleasure and hope to meet you again in town! All the best, Lucrezia

We had a private tour with Lucrezia and she was a great guide. She communicated with us prior to the tour to be sure she had our preferences and even found a location for us to stop for a quick bite. She was very informative and had lot of historical information and some really funny stories of famous Venetians. I learned a lot about the history of Venice that I did not know. We traveled for two weeks and had lots of tours. Lucrezia was by far our favorite guide. Book her for you trip to Venice!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Kathleen! I really appreciate that! All the best, Lucrezia

Touring Venice with Lucrezia was like catching up with an old friend, only that friend knew an inordinate amount of information about the city. Even though she showed us some of the most popular spots, it was always just off the beaten path, so felt like not just a private tour, but our own private Venice. We got some great photos and learned a lot about the architecture, city, and culture. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ahah thanks a lot David! I really appreciate each single word and if I will ever be in Dallas I’ll text you for sure!:) Thank you!! All the best, Lucrezia

We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. Lucrezia customized a Venice tour for us based on our criteria which included keeping the tour active and interesting for teenage boys (including a gelato break half-way through). She was punctual, very easy to talk to, and extremely knowledgeable. We have nothing but positive things to say about her. You can't go wrong choosing her as your personal guide to Venice!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Aby! Greatly appreciated!!! Lucrezia

Our tour with Lucrezia couldn't have been better. She showed us back alleys, campos and churches all closely connected to the remarkable history of Venice. Our walk across Venice from Campo San Polo to Piazza San Marco was a gorgeous way to become acquainted with the history of the city. Lucrezia is a talented guide, presenting information in digestible bits in front of the real object of her explanation. She listens to and responds to questions beautifully. I recommend her highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Christine, I truly appreciate it!!! All the best, Lucrezia

This was our second day of private touring with the very knowledgeable Lucrezia, and she did not disappoint! The tours were the highlight of our 2 days in Venice and I would highly recommend booking as many tours as you can with Lucrezia. It was very helpful that we had earphones so that we would all hear her during the tour. She is also flexible, so if you want to spend more or less time in one area its no problem. Thanks Lucrezia for a memorable 2 days in beautiful Venice. We will be back!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again Laura! Can’t wait to meet you guys again!! Lucrezia

We are so happy we booked this tour with Lucrezia. She was punctual and had allot of knowledge of Venice. She also was patient with our group 10 (adults and kids) and showed us the best place to stop for the best Gelato! This was our second time to Venice and we booked her for 2 days of private touring.....I wish we had booked her the first time.

Lucrezia was the best decision my family made in Venice! We had a large group traveling throughout Italy and were doing one day in Venice. Lucrezia was able to show us all of the highlights of the city, but also take us down beautiful side streets and get a glimpse of everyday Venice life. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and thoughtful. It was very apparent that she had years of experience as she was always able to predict our needs throughout the day. Thank you for an amazing Venice experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank YOU so much Melissa!!!!! I really appreciate every single word!! Best, Lucrezia

Walking around with Lucrezia was walking around the best parts of Venice, and as if the city was only ours and locals (even though, at the time of our tour, most sights were as crowded Grand Central!) Lucrezia gave us a great overview of the history of the city, and her context made the sights she shared with us feel special One week later, and I have recommended her to 3-5 friends!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so so much Kris!!! Really appreciated!! All the best, Lucrezia

Lucrezia is an excellent tour guide! This is the perfect tour for a quick intro to Venice. She is happy to adjust the itinerary to your preferences. She is very knowledgeable about all of Venice and it's history. Also, in our case, we were delayed getting to Venice because of flight issues. She was very helpful and flexible and was able to change the time at the last minute because of our delay. I would recommend this tour to anyone!

From the moment I reached out, before our tour was even booked, until the moment our tour was over, Lucrezia was incredibly informative, helpful & engaging. Winding our way through the streets of Venice with her as our guide felt more like exploring the city with an old friend. Our family truly enjoyed every moment, even two teens (14 & 17) who can be a tough crowd. At the end of the tour she gave us so many tips and recommendations that proved indispensable, especially food & gondoliers!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the great review Corinne, I truly appreciate it and I'm really happy to read that also your 2 teens enjoyed it!! Thank you again!! Lucrezia

Lucrenzia was amazing and a wealth of historical knowledge. We took a tour from her that was off the beaten path. Where locals would go for food, or hang out.. a unique church that everybody and his brother wasn't going to on the same day at the same time. Unique shops and alleyways and eateries. Very descriptive of Venice's history and the peoples and governments and communities. We saw far less of the tourists and more of "real Venice." She was entertaining and was the highlight of our Venice stay.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much Kurt!!!!! All the best, Lucrezia

What a lovely way to enjoy Venice. Lucrezia found a great meeting spot for us with benches and shady trees and took us on a wonderful wander of the real Venice stopping by the fish and fruit market, gondola hops across the grand canal and pointing out Venetian secrets and special behavior unique to this wonderful city. She answered all our questions, gave us restaurant tips and helped us secure a quiet spot in the basilica. Venise is wonderful with Lucrezia it was fabulous and she took great photos of us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the great review Rosina! I really enjoyed the time we spent together and hope you can appreciate my home town even more now! Thank you! Lucrezia

2 American couples, we were first time visitors in May 2019. Lucrezia gave us a great intro to Venice. We asked her to take us off the beaten path since we could see the main tourist things ourselves. She was nicely flexible and took us around some interesting areas over a few hours. We enjoyed talking with her about quirky, historic Venice as well as present day happenings. She is intelligent, well spoken, and fun to be with. Thanks Lucrezia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you William! Much appreciated!! All the best, Lucrezia

Our morning with Lucrezia was wonderful. We wanted something different and unusual and our walking tour did not disappoint. We saw hidden gems of the neighborhood and the visit to the gondola boatyard was a highlight of our vacation. Lucrezia is an excellent guide. She is knowledgeable, was accommodating to our needs, and has a delightful personality. I recommend this tour without reservation.

Lu was an amazing guide!! We have always had great experiences with guides from Tours by Locals, but my wife and I agree that Lu has been the best thus far. It was obvious that she had put the time in to thoroughly understand the history of Venice. She took us to some great local restaurants and introduced us to some amazing food and wine! She was incredibly personable and created an amazing experience. We would HIGHlY recommend this tour with Lu!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Michael!!! I’m happy you enjoyed the tour and I had a great time with you too! Hope to see you soon again in Venice, or maybe in the states :) Thank you again! Lucrezia
