Elisabetta was fabulous! My family of four loved her! She captivated our children (18 and 15 year olds) with the history of Venice and her knowledge of everything from architecture to the etymology of words we still use today. We snaked our way through San Polo, where we were staying, to the Fish Market and over the Rialto Bridge. At the Piazza San Marco she had a water taxi waiting for us. We toured for an additional hour on the boat. She went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed out time in Venice.

Elisabetta met us at our hotel. Before going too far she provided us with information and history of Venice. She explained why the early Venetians left the main land to live in he lagoon, and the social, religious, economic and governmental structure of the people. We visited the Rialto market and bridge, Campo de le Becarie (very interesting), piazza San Marcos, Doge's Palace, the bridge of sighs. We took a taxi tour and saw "The" gondola shop, the Grand Canal and more. Great morning.

Elisabetta is delight!! Her knowledge of Venetian history, combined with other fun and offbeat facts made our tour amazing. She customized our tour specifically for us and threw in some additions, based on our conversations, along the way. This highly informative, yet laid back tour with Elisabetta deserves 5+ stars. We will definitely use her and toursbylocals again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello ... thanks so much. I am very touched by all these nice words... thanks again!

This was the first of four tours that our group of six adults took in and around Venice with Elisabetta. At our request, she combined the walking tour with a private water taxi ride along the Grand Canal. Elisabetta is a delightful person, knowledgeable and thoughtful. Her English is excellent! This was our initial visit to Venice, and we finished this tour with a very clear understanding of Venice's past, present and future. We give Elisabetta our strongest endorsement! She was terrific!
Ann H.INDIAN, United States
Elisabetta gave us a wonderful walking tour of Venice and Murano. Being a local she got us around with ease and knew where to stop for coffee, restrooms, etc. Fascinating history of the area and she was very knowledgeable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Ann! I am glad you liked it! I wish you all the best and may be the hope that our paths will cross again!!! Ciao Elisa

Elisabetta was outstanding. She provided everything we wanted and more. she met us at the airport, had a place to store our luggage and a spot to relax over lattes and pasteries after an all-night flight. we wanted a"non-tourist" tour--just crossed St. Mark's square, shoulder ot shoulder with tourists! We saw the back streets where the locals live ordinary lives...ate lunch in a botanical garden..local! saw an elementary school and ordinarary homes/ churches. Elisabetta is a treasure-
a perfect guide with a lovely character, very knowledgeable about the city. It was "the perfect day" in Venice. We received lots of good tips for food in general and restaurants and interesting snippets on the historic background. The boat trip she organised also received 10 out of 10 and we now have a good overall impression of the place. Thank you Elisabetta
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello ! I wish I had more swiss people! I had really a great time with you. I hope you will be back soon! Ciao Elisabetta

Well organised transfers to the airport. On time and with no problems for a large group with lots of luggage.

Perfect transfers - on time and no issues. Moving 9 people and 13 pieces of hold luggage plus several items of auxiliary pieces was made so easy with Elizabettas help.
Mary Anne ParksUnited States
Elisabetta was able to show us some excellent sites in the very limited amount of time we had before our flight. I would highly recommend Elisabetta!
Craig AverchUnited States
Elisabetta had to work under very difficult conditions. It poured the entire time from when we left the dock in a water taxi throughout our walking tour of Venice. The crowds were dense and there was none of the magic of Venice. Despite that Elisabetta gave us a very enjoyable and informative tour showing us all the important sights as well as taking us to areas where there were less tourists. She helped us make the best of the day. An excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: GRAZIEE!!!!! I am glad you really decided to take the tour despite the conditions!!!!
David SchwartzbergUnited States
The best I could of ever done! We were a family of 6 traveling with 2 kids, and although people love to get lost in Venice and find it very romantic. We did not have that luxury with so many of us and kids. Elisabetta was, patient and managed to keep us all together. She was very informative and really focused on our needs and likes. I would highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: grazieeee grazie I have you in my heart! ...

Venice was wet and cold but Elisabetta was charming, vivacious and full of good humour. She showed us her Venice in a personalised tour, just as I asked. It could not have been better. Thank you very much, Elisabetta.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello!!! How can I thank you for these nice words! I hope Venice will see you again soon!!! Regards, Elisabetta
Renee HuhsUnited States
Excellent guide for families - including kids. We had a very pleasant stroll and boat ride through Venice. Nice mix of the traditional plus just some interesting corners of the city.

Chris HoganUnited States
What a lovely day with Elisa - she knows and loves Venice and that certainly comes through. She once worked at Epcot in Disney - so very indulgent to visiting Americans. Good combination of social history and academic, light-hearted and very funny. A professional tour guide with a great streetside manner.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, it was a lovely day for me too! I am only sorry I did not have the chance to meet Mrs Joan! I hope I will have the chance to escort you and you family in the future! Regards, Elisabetta
