An excellent tour combining photo opportunities with local history and color. Eva took us to places away from the tourist mainstream and pointed out photo composition and lighting setups to help get some great shots. Her personality makes it seem like a friend with local knowledge is taking you around Venice. I would recommend this tour to anyone, even to those who would not consider themselves photographers, and have only a basic camera or phone.

I did not think it was possible to see the "best of the best" in Venice in only 2 short days, but Eva pulled it off with great planning, flexibility and skill. We saw all of the key locations in Venice as well as some lesser known ones in Murano and other remote islands. Eva is an outstanding photographer and she took almost 200 pictures over the 2 day tour. She willingly shared the photos with me for my own use for a very reasonable fee. This allowed me to focus solely on the gondolas, etc.

Wonderful tour with Eva! My wife and I had a fabulous evening tour of the canals with Eva and her husband while in Venice and found it to be such a relaxing and enjoyable way to see so much of the Venetian canals versus so much less if you just do a Gondola ride. Eva's family boat whisks you around the canals quietly and while doing so Eva was able to take some great pictures of us which she shared after the tour. Loved our time together & would love to come back & spend some more time touring your city

Eva was great with our whole family and found some beautiful backdrops for our pictures. We received the pictures quickly and they all came out wonderfully! She also gave us some interesting history on Venice during our photos.

We had an amazing time in Venice with Eva. She showed us some amazing local areas and some special ways to take portrait pictures. My husband loved the tips and my daughters loved the pictures and I loved the history. A great way to make the entire family happy ��

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with Eva. She was very knowledgeable of the areas we visited due to the fact that she actually lives nearby. She gave both of us many pointers as to how to take better travel photographs--what to look for, how to set up the picture, lighting, photo themes. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing the more intimate side of Venice and interested in improving their travel photographs.

A delightful tour with Eva and her son navigating the boat. We especially enjoyed seeing neighborhoods and canals that normally only the locals frequent! Molte Grazie!

Eva was very nice and very knowledgeable. We spent a nice time with her on Murano and Burano. She really knows the area. She's a professional photographer and she has an eye for good photo locations both of the sights and of us.

This tour was fabulous. We had one day in Venice, never having been before. We saw so much and learnt so much, not only about the history of Venice, but how the locals live today. We had tapas in the market area, and Evo gave us good recommendations for dinner, sightseeing and shopping. To top it all off, she is a wonderful photographer and took some splendid pics of my daughters and I. What a very special day!

Fabulous guide. We did two separate tours with Eva since we had limited time in Venice. Well worth every penny we spent to navigate through Venice quickly. She's not only extremely knowledgeable about Venice and photography, she's a lovely woman to spend the day with. Highly recommend!

Eva was AMAZING! We had very limited time in Venice and wanted to maximize the time we had. My husband is an avid photographer and Eva was the perfect guide for him. Knowing our time was limited, she focused on getting us to the best locations for photos. She offered advice given the very overcast conditions. This was our first experience with Tours by Locals and we've used it again because the experience was so great.

It was a delight to meet Eva. She is very friendly and interesting and we both enjoyed her fascinating tour that showed parts of Venice not seen by many tourists. The light was good and she had picked the best time of day to show the deep colours of the Venetian houses by the waterside. I took lots of photographs! She chose wisely the places to go and eat traditional cicchetti and drink the local wines. Lovely! Her talk was entertaining and informative and was the highlight of our trip to Venice.

Last night with Eva and her husband was the best part of our trip to Italy. They gave us an up close and personal look at this city that was both memorable and a lot of fun. Their beautiful boat and their warm and enjoyable company makes us want to give them more than just 5 stars.

Excellent way of visiting Venice in a day. Eva was great, warm and welcoming. She made us feel at ease in this crowded city, showing all the "must see" sites by foot and finally gave us a feel of how Venice was 1000 years ago. great experience.

Eva was flexible, stepping in at the last minute to take over our tour. We thoroughly enjoyed her knowledge of the city and putting into context its history, people, events, architecture and the unique canal system. We enjoyed going inside buildings, walking down passage ways that opened into courtyards, seeing the market place, and stepping back in time while being in the present. We learned of the many achievements and discoveries that came out of this magical city and look forward to coming back.

We loved our two tours with Eva. Both professional and friendly Eva gave us real insight into how Venice works - she is married into a very old Venetian family. We were on honeymoon and Eva took our pictures in various places to a very high quality, certainly the best we have had. It will be an album to treasure. We would highly recommend.

Had a wonderful day with Eva. She knows authentic Murano glass; showed us shops with various types of true Burano pieces which were very reasonable. Saw the glass blowing process. Toured Burano before going into town to see real Venetian lace being made. Was able to video a third generation lace maker as she explained and demonstrated how the lace is made; saw 200 year old family lace. Eva took pictures of us in front of a brightly colored house for which Burano is famous & texted them to us! A+++day

Eva was able to show us Venice in a way few people get to, into the little often unvisited side streets. She knew the best locations to capture memorable photos and memories. As well as being a great person, her knowledge of Venice was encyclopedic. We highly recommend her tours.

Eva was fantastic! I was having a really hard time trying to find the right tour of Venice given our time constraints. Eva was very responsive, able to understand what we wanted, and create something that met all of our needs. Even better, she was a photographer and able to take some great group shots for the 4 of us! We saw everything and went to places we wouldn't have been able to find without her. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

AMAZING GUIDE! Eva......she is the best guide EVER. Kind, knowledgeable, goes at the right pace, shows you all there is to see, and avoids the "tourist" crowds. She met us at 6:00AM to show us the true Venice without the crowds. Her tour of Murano and Burano were equally impressive. I felt as if I was with a friend rather than with someone I just met. We ate food like the locals and rode public transportation with ease. She even stayed with us for extra time to be sure we saw all she had promised.

Our tours with Eva were amazing! I cannot say enough good things. We could not have enjoyed Venice as much as we did without her expertise and guidance. She is so kind and knowledgeable! Eva and her husband introduced us to Venice for a private boat tour - it was Perfetto! Peaceful and beautiful. We enjoyed delicious appetizers and local wine at a popular Osteria. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The tour to Murano and Burano is not to be missed! Lunch in Burano was our favorite. Eva, Thank you!
