We had 2 great tours with Isabella! The boat tour is the best way to see Venice in a short amount of time and to get to know where everything is! The view from the top of the Church of San Giorgio was incredible! We also had the 2 hour walking tour with Isabella and that was the perfect way to learn about the markets, local culture, history, and the inner workings of Venice. After touring with Isabella we had a wonderful 2 days and knew how to get around without any trouble. Thanks so much Isabella!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many kisses from Venice!

Isabella was charming, flexible, and thoroughly prepared, with an excellent boat driver, to show us the wonderful canals of her city, including areas seldom seen by any except the citizens of Venice. She is an experienced professional, helpful and good natured.

We loved our boat tour with Isabella. She picked us up at the train station and brought us right to the boat with our luggage. Our tour was fun and informative through the Grand Canal, some smaller rios and out into the lagoon. We requested a stop for a " local experience" and Isabella took us to a lovely spot for prosecco and Tapas/cichettas that was quaint with delicious small plates of food. She was willing to customize our experience, and we really appreciate it. Terrific!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kisses and Kisses to all you guys! Thanks Isa

A boat trip around the canals of Venice was the best way to see the city, especially if you have mobility problems like I do. Isabel arranged everything perfectly and the driver of the van Franco ( I think that was his name ) was so friendly. Isabella was a perfect guide, telling the history of everything we saw with great passion and love for her city. We have been to Venice three times and this was our best trip so far. Ciao Isabella and hope to see you again one day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Ruth! Thanks so much for your kind comment and the five stars. All the best isa

Venice from the water is a must see! Despite the weather not being great today, I still really enjoyed this tour. If you would like to see this magical city from both the water and from up high in a relaxed and lovely way, this is the tour for you. Isabella is a great guide and really easy to communicate with. Thanks for a great afternoon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you dear Kate! Ciao isa

Isabella was a wonderful guide. This was the 4th time we have used Tours by Locals and we continue to be impressed by the caliber of your guides. They are personable, friendly, knowledgeable, caring of our needs and often times funny. It doesn't take long until they feel like part of our family.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow thanks alot Isa
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mark, thanks for your stars! Kisses from Venice

Isabella wasa wonderful guide on this fun boat trip around Venice. You simple can't fully appreciate Venice without this tour. Gondola rides don't offer nearly as much exposure to the evolution of Venice, its architecture, the methods of construction and the history of this fabulous City. Isabella also had the boat stop so we could go top the top to the St.George Tower for a stunning panarama view of the Grand Canal and the Venice harbor. Don't do Venice without this tour with Isabella! Highly Recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your great comment. kisses to all of you from italy

Isabella was great. She is very knowledgeable and really seems to enjoy her job. She does not load you down with too many facts but has the answers if you have a question. We were picked up at our hotel by a water taxi that looked like a really well restored ChrisCraft with glass windows to protect us against water spray. We cruised along many canals and saw beautiful churches, palaces, and other historical places. We took the lift to the top of St. George's to have a spectacular view of the city. Great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie 1000! It was my pleasure!
