Date: Jan 20/20

My sister and I spent 5 wonderful hours with the native Venetian Elisabetta in her hometown.We really enjoyed walking around everywhere in Venice and seeing the sights with her all to ourselves. It was nice to get the honest scoop on what is going on currently on the islands.We fortunately did this trip in January and there were no crowds and no lines.It was amazing! I will never visit this place in the summer.We got to spend time where we wanted to and we never had to take roll call or wait for somebody.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry for the delay... I LOVED my time with you. Quality time with people it is invaluable. I wish very much for a second visit!!! Ciao and thanks so much for the kind words.

Date: Nov 26/19

Our visit to Venice took place two weeks after the terrible flooding. Our tour was already scheduled, so I emailed Elisabetta to ask if we should still come. "Don't worry," she replied. "You are with a local!" We are so glad we visited as planned and had Elisabetta as our guide. She is a true joy to be with! Not only did she help us understand and appreciate Venice's rich history and culture, she also went out of her way to offer assistance and advice for the rest of our visit. We highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for this comment!!!! Very much liked the day together! Ciao

Elizabetta proved to be a delightful, entertaining and extremely pleasant companion. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and would very happily recommend her to future travellers. Her local knowledge was, as expected, first class and supplemented by illustrative stories and anecdotes. She also knew how to avoid some of the worst of the crowds. Her itinerary met all the aspects we had requested and her commentary on current developments in the social history of Venice were enlightening.

Elizabetta was an excellent guide for our tour of Venice. She took us to all the points of interest and included a very detailed history of the sites that we visited. We were even able to skip the long lines wherever we went. She communicated with us prior to our tour and even helped us arrange transportation to the airport the next day. I was very impressed that she followed up with a text to make certain we made it to the airport. I would strongly recommend the use of her services!

It was an amazing way to start our first day in Venice.. an early morning walking tour of the city with Elisabetta! Seeing the city start to wake up and begin the day, without any crowds, was amazing! We walked down to the docks where business was brisk on the water with deliveries being made. St. Mark's square was empty so there were beautiful photo opportunities. We could not have had a better guide. Elisabetta is knowledgeable and engaging, and we learned so much about this fascinating city.

If you want a true "insider" perspective on Venice then this is the tour for you. San Marco and the Rialto can be pretty much standing room only. Elizabetta shows you the quieter, less crowded Venice with trips to the Castello and Arsenale sections. A wonderful glass blowing demonstration on Murano. Experiences with local coffee houses and chicchetti snacks. Finishing with a trip to the top of the Tedeschi building with a wonderful panoramic vista of the entire town. Would recommend to anyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jim & Michelle, your words are so nice!!!!! Elisabetta

We were very fortunate to have Elisabetta with us to visit the Jewish Ghetto. She gave us a good sense of the history of the Ghetto as well its current status as one of the neighborhoods of modern day Venice.

We had a fabulous time exploring Venice as the town was waking up...no crowds just us walking along the narrow alleys, across unique bridges, stopping along the way for pastries and pictures. Elisabetta was delightful. She shared the history of her hometown as well as the best places to eat, shop, and see. We took the tour on the first morning of our visit so we were able to follow through with her suggestions.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great company for the sunrise on Venice!!!!! I wish you luck and please keep in touch. I love to see you again. And may be, Becky go for a run together. Baci

Elisabetta was fantastic! She gave my husband and I some great insight on the best places to go and which places to avoid. She gave us a brief history of Venice as we walked and rode the vaporetto. We also went to Murano and saw an amazing glass blowing demonstration.

Had a wonderful day in Venice with Elisabetta. She was flexible when our meeting time changed and was very pleasant and informative. We got away from the maddening crowd and found some interesting places, including the ghetto. The highlight of the trip was our water taxi tour in canals both wide and narrow. A must for any tour of Venice. Three hours flew by. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie!!!!! Only because of you the taxi will stay! Thanks for the day! Say hello to everyone! X

Elisabetta was a fantastic guide! I was traveling with my husband, sister, kids (aged 16 and 14), and my parents (aged 75). I liked Elisabetta's profile and began emailing her several months before my trip. I explained what we were looking for, and she completely customized 2 tours for us for the day before our cruise, and the day after our cruise. She was friendly and very knowledgable. She made sure we were always comfortable due to the heat (stopping for gelato, and time to rest). 5 STARS!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The star is the lady that has put together the trip for her family ... and thanks for picking me. Great fun this family. I was definitely lucky!!!!

Elisabetta was a very flexible and accommodating guide. We had to change our time and she was very gracious to do so. Elisabetta was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. We stopped for coffee and she even took us to her favorite gelato store. Elisabetta also made sure we knew the best place to catch our boat back to the cruise port and she even walked us there. I would highly recommend her for a great tour of Venice.

My wife and I had a great tour with Elisabetta. Her pacing was ideal for us, taking the time to describe and explain all that we saw with her. An added bonus was the hour's private trip along the Grand Canal and adjoining canals, which are, of course, the lifeline of this unique city. We highly recommend Elisabeta; you cannot go wrong choosing her for your selected tour. Richard Johnson (Maryland, USA)

Elisabetta will ensure you spend a magical couple of hours seeing her city well away from the hoards of tourists. She is both entertaining and informative about the city and it's wonderful tapas bars. You can choose exactly what you would like to eat & drink while always being expertly guided by her. She even surprised us with tickets to the most magical rooftop view of the city which we didn't know about and just loved. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend Elisabetta to you.

Elisabetta is a fantastic guide! - We actually used her twice in one day. In the morning we did the "Perfect Day in Venice" which included a 1 hour private boat ride throughout many of the smaller canals, which was a real plus. In the evening we met her for the "Wine and Chicetti" tour, another fun thing to do. She is knowledgeable, funny, interesting, and has perfect English! If you are visiting Venice, you really need to use Elisabetta as your guide.
