Elisabetta is one special guide. Our kids were celebrating their honeymoon in Venice. This was their second tour with Elisabetta. She made them feel special and treated them like family. They loved visiting Venice in the morning! Great idea to see a different side of Venice. Less crowded. Elisabetta is full of information. Proud to share the history and beauty of Venice. She even met the newlyweds for an evening get together. Highly recommended! The Best of the Best!

This is the best way to see the city of Venice. It is early in the morning but it is wonderful because there are no crowds. Elisabetta was amazing. She took us on a walking tour of the more residential side of Venice. It was amazing to see and gave us a greater appreciation of the beauty of the city. Her suggestion for places to eat was perfect. We had dinner at one of them and loved the food. Thanks for everything and making our stay in Venice one to never forget.

Elizabetta was a wonderful guide. She was on time. She was very sensitive to what our expectations were and was sure she showed us things we had a particular interest in, The rain slowed us down but we did not miss anything. She was generous with her comments and suggestions. I do not feel we received a rote memorization of a talk. I enjoyed her company very much, we were more like friends out for a walk rather than guide and tourists. Thanks so much!

Elisabetta was great, she was knowledgeable, friendly with the adults and children, answered all questions asked and offered additional helpful information. She allowed us to go at our own pace and still managed to pack in a lot of experiences. Would highly recommend her for any tour!

It was a treat spending time with Elisabetta. She is very friendly and was flexible about making a last minute adjustment to our plans. She designed the time based on our requests and we felt lucky to be walking around with a local through parts of Castello and then over to Dorsoduro, which we may not have seen on our own, learning about life in Venice along the way and interesting history highlights. We stopped at two fun places for a glass of wine/chatting. A highlight of our stay in Venice!

Elisabetta was a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide, bringing her attention to details to everything. Her communication and people skills are excellent, and she has some very creative ways in helping children learn about history! (We brought our 8 year old daughter & 13 year old son along for the tour!) She was able to tell us the history about the smallest thing in full details. Elisabetta is not only very experienced, but also a very perceptive tour guide. I highly recommend her!

We set up our tour with Elisabetta at practically the last minute, however, every thing with the tour worked perfectly. Elisabetta is very enthusiastic about her city. She guided us to and educated us about the major attractions as well as some of lesser known gems of Venice. I highly recommend a tour with Elisabetta, especially if you have children.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really had a great time myself and thanks so much for the 5 stars! The kids were fantastic! GRAZIE, Elisabetta

Awesome walking tour after most tourists have gone back to their hotels. Elisabetta did a great job of telling us the history as well as making sure we were holding up after traveling all night. This was our 5th tour with Tours by Locals and we have never been disappointed. The private tour concept is perfect for us. It makes the experience so much richer when you know the history, back story and significance of the sights your are seeing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much !!! I enjoyed much of your company! I really hope our paths might cross again!
Fantastic introduction to Venice and some hidden gems and lane ways. Elisabetta was a fun, knowledgeable guide who connected with our group instantly. We thoroughly enjoyed her company and used many of her tips to find out about Venice's amazing sights and great restaurants.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for all this very warm words. Taking you around it was like going around with my family. Best felling of all. Thanks you!!!! Elisabetta

Elisabetta provided us with a completely different perspective of this beautiful city at night. She was very knowledgeable, entertaining and simply fun!

Teresa AndersonUnited States
Elisabetta was the PERFECT guide. She is incredibly well traveled and not only was she knowledgeable about Venice, she was funny and charming as well. She was flexible with our needs and schedule and went beyond her duties by offering to be the point of contact for any of the items we needed shipped. After our 2 days together we knew as much about her as she did us, and we are absolutely thrilled to be keeping in touch with her via e-mail.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really had the best time with all 4 of you. Best laughs in long time. A pleasure working like this!!!! Grazie, Elisabetta

I was on a tour that included time to ourselves..well, I knew about ToursbyLocals so I booked seeing fantastic Venice at night and it fit into the timeline perfectly. I learned from past tours to see a city at night, much different than in the daytime. Elisabetta made Venice come to life with her background stories and passion for Venice, her hometown. She is a highlight of my time in Italy. She was on time and accommodating to meeting me and my friend at our hotel. I am so glad we saw Venice at night!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much! I am very happy for your kind words!!!! I wish you a good return with great memories!!!
