Fernando was great! Has an amazing sense of humour and knows all the little streets and paths that you wouldn't normally see as a tourist. This tour covers all the Venice essentials. Highly recommend.

Fernando's tour was, by far, the highlight of our 4-day visit to Venice. He was informative, humorous and very perceptive regarding the things that we would like to see and learn. The restaurant he recommended for lunch was exactly what we had been looking for. Fernando's depth of historical knowledge, as well as his knowledge of local culture, was greatly appreciated. The trip to see Murano glass production far surpassed our expectations. Our return visits to Venice will include a tour with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Jamie, we certainly had a great day, end of season not too many people around and nice weather. The restaurant and the food also added extra value to the day but above all was your company and your continuous attention to my explanations, that really makes my job easier and delightful. I'll take you seriously when you say you're coming to Venice again! You know where to find me in Toursbylocals, a big hug to both of you, Fernando

We had a wonderful tour, especially through the lesser travelled back roads of Venice. We also appreciated the early entry and creative routing through the Basilica. We recommend Fernando highly!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Barbara, I'm glad you enjoyed yourself through the tour and thank you for the 'creative scouting', that very stimulating! Hugs to all Fernando

This was our first trip to Venice and after reviewing several guides I selected Fernando based on ratings by his past clients. Fernando did an outstanding job and we had a great time touring the Murano glass works as well as St. Marks and several other parts of Venice. His knowledge of the city's past, the architecture and even present day challenges enhanced our trip beyond measure. Fernando connected with me by email over a month before our trip and made it easy to meet once we were in the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao John, Murano is always an incredible experience for any visitor, hard to believe how masters can produce an infinite selection of shapes and colors. And for the rest, your company and enduring interest was decisive for a most agreeable tour. Hugs for all Fernando

A really fascinating tour of some of the quieter areas of Venice plus a very well informed trip around San Marco. Fernando has a wealth of knowledge about Venice, its buildings, its history and its role as a major European power of old. Well worth doing.

FANTASTIC!! Fernando gave us an incredible tour. Although his tour was not listed as a "Jewish Heritage Tour", his wealth of technical information was so beneficial. He guided us for 2 days and we wish there was more time. We asked to be taken off the beaten track, and he took us to places where we didn't see any tourists. We are so grateful to him for giving us an in-depth tour of Venice.

Fernando was a great tour guide for a city we had never visited. He knew Venice inside and out and was very knowledgeable about the historical aspects of the city. He was very professional (sent a note to our hotel to change the time of our tour and texted me to ensure that I got the note and to make sure that this time change was okay with us) but had a laid-back style. The trip to Murano was a highlight! I highly recommend Fernando.

This was the second time we had used Fernando in Venice. He freely shares his knowledge about the area. We visited on a holiday so he deftly avoided much of the crunch of people and took us to some off the beaten track areas. Much appreciated.

We really enjoyed our tour in Venice with Fernado. His warm personality made him a delight to spend the day with. He was very knowledgable and informative about the art and history of the city. Once he knew our specific interests, he adapted the tour to accommodate us, showing us many unique sights along way. The trip to Murano where we visited a glass studio to watch the artists at work was the highlight of our trip! Grazie!

Fernando did a fabulous job of guiding my family and I through Venice and Murano. I walk with a cane and Fernando patiently helped me in and out of water taxies and across cobbled streets. His knowledge brought Venice alive for us and made for many wonderful memories of our tour and tour guide, Fernando.
