Ermanno is the best. His knowledge of the history is exciting. He even gives a bit of the local color of today. I would recommend this tour to anyone, especially if you have a short time in Venice. Very small groups work best for the personal interaction. Thank you Ermanno.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Richard !!!

Ermanno was an excellent guide and we could not have been happoer with our tour! He was VERY knowledgeable, friendly and flexible with respect to our schedule and what we wanted to see and learn about. After the tour was over, Ermanno even took the time to walk us all the way back to our cruise ship, which was on his own time and far from where the tour ended. We would definitely recommend Ermanno to anyone who wants a fantastic guided tour through Venice.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Berry ,you and your wife ..wonderful people!!!

Ermanno was a fantastic guide and now a friend in Venice. Being a multi-generational native, he had wonderful history and perspective of the city. We were running a few minutes late, and he was flexible and responsive to our last-minute communications. He took a few family photos for us and had an abundance of energy and enthusiasm. He kept us away from the crowds and showed us areas we would never have found. It was a delightful 3 hours!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, wonderful Family.

Ermanno was a great guide in Venice - his hometown! We took us off the beaten path to learn the history of the city, so we were away from the crowds for awhile. We ended in St. Mark's Square. Venice is a fascinating city!

Ermanno was wonderful! It made such a difference booking with someone who is a multi-generational Venetian who can tell you so much inside information and history that you just couldn't learn from someone else. This truly authentic tour is just what we were looking for as we only had one full day in Venice and walked for 3 hours solid and really packed in as full of an full experience as possible. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much You and Your fantastic family. I m so happy you enjoy, you really have a venetian friend.. Anytime you ll come back to Venice. Regards Ermanno

You expect your tour guide to be informative - that's a given. If you're lucky, your guide is also savvy. He knows the obscure shortcut or the place to stand to take the perfect photo. If you're even luckier, your guide is charismatic, & his enthusiasm is contagious. If you're luckier still, your guide is personable, & at the end you feel like you've spent the morning with a friend. For us, Ermanno ticked each of these boxes. He gave us an enlightening perspective of his home town that we won't forget.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much indeed ....wonderful friends

Ermanno was exactly what our group had wished for. He knew Venice backwards and forwards and gave us the tour we wanted--away from the crowds, the special local neighborhoods and monuments, and a real "locals" view. He went above and beyond what was expected, and we hated to say goodbye to him. We would definitely recommend Ermanno for anyone going to Venice who wants an insider's viewpoint.

A fun and interesting way to get to know venice on our first day. Ermanno is very Venice to the heart, knows so much and is also fun. 3 hours of walking through the city to understand the history, the layout and what is happening in the city today. It really is a great way to extend your view beyond St Marks and find the other amazing places in Venice. Couldn't have been better for us.

Great Tour - outside St Mark's Square. Ermanno is a wonderful guide, full of energy and we especially enjoyed the bits of trivia he shared with us about Venice, making the city come alive. We clocked in a total of 15,000 steps in 2 hours as he led us in and out the maze of alleys and he always had some story or other to tell us. Ermanno loves Venice and it's obvious with his enthusiastic narrative of the history of Venice and/or whatever is left. I would highly recommend this tour with Ermanno.

Perfect tour of Venice away from the crowds. We started at 8am in the Rialto markets and then Ermanno took us walking through the real Venice, where venetians actually live. We saw beautiful churches, ancient buildings and piazzas and we finished the tour in the Jewish ghetto area. Ermanno is a very proud Venetian and has an incredible knowledge of the city and its history and how perfect to be shown around the city by someone who actually grew up there. Thoroughly recommend this tour and Ermanno.

We really enjoyed our time with Ermanno learning about Venice from a native Venetian. He has a wealth of knowledge and shared it freely with us in a fast paced tour of the city. While we enjoyed the famous sightseeing locales, our favorite part of the tour was walking through the quieter streets of the city and soaking up Ermanno's knowledge. This tour was great for an initial introduction to the city and we highly recommend it!

Excellent tour of Venice. Ermanno was on time (always crucial to me), knowledgable, entertaining and took the tour at our pace. He was happy to stop and let us browse here and there....but also kept us on track to complete the distance we had agreed to cover (what we wanted to see) in the allotted time. Ermanno suggested other things we might want to see/places to shop but did not push one thing over another which I have experienced on other tours. I can highly recommend this tour

Ermanno was friendly enough, but did not seem to have enough depth of knowledge. We also disappointed that with several of the sites closed for the holiday, that we could not use the extra time to see things that were on the agenda. We did not get to see The Basillca San Marco, or the Church of San Giovanni i Paolo on the inside, and really had a rather cursory walk through the Ghetto. Of all the tours we have had this trip from Tours by Locals, this was the weakest performance we have experienced.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry, But I m disappointed by you,I'm not to have enough depth of knowledge?? Look other feedback please..It was not my fault if you came to Venice ( Italy) May 1st ,it's a Big holiday all over.You did not get to see The Basillca San Marco, or the Church of San Giovanni i Paolo on the inside,Because it's not including at the tour itinerary.I'm disagree with you at all, maybe was your not best day to come in Venice.

We had a wonderful morning touring Venice with Ermanno as our guide. He met us at our hotel and modified the route to accommodate our afternoon schedule. Since we had been to Venice previously, we opted to focus on visiting less-known areas. Ermanno kept us entertained with non-traditional stories of the past and with life for locals of today. We would highly recommend him for you - and hire him again for ourselves.

Ermanno did a wonderful job showing my family around Venice. As a native, he shared with us his experiences growing up in the city and how things have changed over the last 50 years. He provided us with historical context to the beautiful churches and architecture, which made what we were seeing more meaningful. We would definitely recommend Ermanno to guide you through his hometown. His passion and enthusiasm are contagious. Ciao.

Having Ermanno guide you through Venice is an absolutely terrific experience! As a native Venetian, he knows so much about his city, and loves to share it with his clients. We saw many things off the beaten path, with Ermanno providing insights along with an impish sense of humor. Next time we visit Venice, we will definitely book with him again

Ermanno is a life long resident of Venice but he was very critical of his town. We also had to listen very carefully and look at his face to understand his english. We had requested a tour of the less touristy sites which was our mistake because what we saw was a lot of the more distressed areas rather than unique charming sections.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I appreciate your feedback, thank-you for sharing. I think you may have interpreted my passion and the honest way I explain my city in a negative way. I wanted to explain the truth about the area because I love it, I certainly did not intend for you to take it the wrong way

Superb behind the scenes tour of Venice in 2 hours - away from the crowds and a chance to ask all the questions you want about this truly unique place from an actual Venetian. Ermanno is informative, interesting, funny and considerate - with 30 years experience in the tourism business as well. But it's his insider knowledge, and his passion for his home city, that makes this tour really special. Worth every penny - has whetted our appetite for a second visit.

My sister, brother-in-law and I recently had a three hour tour with Ermanno in Venice. He was the best guide! Firstly, he was a real Venetian who has lived there all his life, and secondly, he was passionate about his city and it's history! We learnt so much from him from the Jewish Ghetto district and how it got its name, the symbols over the doorways of houses, to why the gondoliers are all painted black, and the first real Venetian masks. And much more!

Ermanno is an excellent guide. We took his 3-hour walking tour and saw more than we ever could have expected. He explains the sites and their importance, and chooses not to overwhelm you with dates that will soon be forgotten. He loves his city and explains why it has been so relevant for such a long time. Moreover, he is friendly and accommodating. I would heartily recommend him to any tourist. And, if you tell him you like stories, you will be especially pleased.

The knowledge that Ermanno has about his Venice is outstanding, he easily accommodated to our schedule and pace, as a local resident of Venice he was able to show us parts of the city that we were not aware of its existence. Without a doubt we highly recommend Ermanno, if you are planning to visit Venice, Italy. Best wishes and thanks to Ermanno, Fabiola & Jorge
