Now this is the way to see Venice. Eva and husband Junior picked us up in their motorized wooden rowboat for a most memorable tour through the canals in the early evening. Eva regaled us with Venetian lore and alerted us to upcoming photo ops under the many bridges as the setting sun lit up buildings. Junior handled the logistics of blind corners with his whistle warnings. Perfect way for a couple to travel like a local. Forget the gondola ride. Do this!

Eva and her husband were brilliant. They adapted their small photo tour to accommodate 8 ladies going to a Carnival Ball. They borrowed a larger boat, helped us all board in huge dresses, provided blankets to keep us warm and guided us around the canals before dropping us off at the ball. The tour was incredibly informative and friends who had visited Venice before saw places they had never seen. Eva's English is fluent and her husband a skilled boatsman. A fantastic way to start our Carnival experience.

We so enjoyed our walking tour of Venice with Eva. She was personable and very knowledgable. Eva gave me simple pointers for my camera that greatly increased my enjoyment! After spending the afternoon with Eva, we found ourselves getting around Venice very easily. When we return to Venice we will definitely look up Eva again, and highly recommend her!
We are a family of two adults and one 14 year old. We had an amazing trip through the canals that most tourists never see and even a few that our awesome guide Eva and her very capable boat captain hadn't seen in a long time. We started the tour at 6:00pm with a perfect evening of cruising through the "real" Venice highlighted by almost magical light from the setting sun. This was the cherry on top of a perfect trip to Venice! Highly recommend Eva as your guide in Venice.

What a fabulous way to see Venice, away from the tourists and a look at some of the prettiest canals in the city. The professional photos sent after the trip were really nice.
The tour was very unusual, the driver and the guide were very nice, with very extensive knowledge of the history of the city, very kind courtesy, very nice, we bought an hour tour and we got an hour and a quarter, A very pleasant experience that is definitely worth the price we paid

Eva and Junior are informative, personable, and accommodating. We really enjoyed the individualized tour, the small size of the boat enabled us to see parts of Venice most people don't see. Eva had useful photography tips and also taught me how to row like a gondolier. This tour was one of the highlights of our two weeks in Italy.

You have to see Venice through the photograoher's eyes . That is what Eva showed us . Venice without tourists. She and her husband work so well together . She narrates and take photos of all the grandeur and romantic back canals without tourists , while her husband Junior navigates the beautiful wooden boat craftily through the narrowest of canals to show us the romantic locales hidden from general tourists . We felt so privileged to e able to see Venice through their photographic eyes . Thank You❣️

The tour my wife and I did with Eva was definitely a highlight of our trip. She was kind, knowledgeable of Venice and its history, and an excellent photographer. We have several photos from the tour that will hang in our house for the rest of our lives. Eva was also very easy to arrange with and she even met us in our hotel lobby to walk us to the boat. I highly recommend a tour with Eva!
This was an excellent Tour and good value with Photos included. A great way to see the real Venice. Highly recommended.
Eva is a superb guide and person. We had a great time in Venice with Eva and her husband. The boat trip was the highlight of the day. You are able to see places that you otherwise would not see and all this in a beautiful old wooden boat. Eva also had a very kind and pleasant way of teaching our daughter the secrets of photography and how to use her new camera. We totally recommend Eva as your Venice guide. Everything was well planned and she is very considerate of her client's wishes. Thank you Eva!

This tour by Eva was the highlight of a beautiful stay in Venice. We would recommend this walking and boating tour to anyone who wants to see the beautiful side canals and the history of many of the homes and areas. The weather was very warm, so this late afternoon/early evening trip was perfect.

Eva was an outstanding photographer and guide. We were sorry to say goodbye after the wonderful few hours with her and her charming husband. We would highly recommend her.
Ginger BarthelUnited States
Eva is most cordial and knowledgable about Venice its history and architecture. She has a keen eye for pointing out photographic opportunities to assist the tourist in capturing the most beautiful photos of Venice. Eva is patient and most kind. She is generous with her time and prompt in arriving and beginning the tour. She knows all of the narrow canals and bridges that you would never find on your own but are wonderful treasures of Venice.

Just returned from a FABULOUS tour with Eva. I can't say enough wonderful things about the three hours she spent with our family of 5. She met us as arranged at our hotel and was warm and outgoing and FULL of information from the minute we left to the minute she dropped us off. There was never a dull moment and there was not ONE thing I asked her about that she did not have a clear and interesting response for. We felt like we had the PERFECT overview of Venice... the highlights and the hidden gems.
The tour with Eva was an amazing experience. First she walked with us through the "Venice of the Venetians", which was like to be suddenly in a different city, calm and so beautiful. After that her husband picked us up by boat and we toured through small channels, along stunning palaces and learned a lot about the city, its history and inhabitants. And of course about photography! Eva is a great photographer and teacher, she gave us really very useful hints to improve our skills. Thanks Eva and kisses!

My wife and I highly recommend this tour for anyone that loves Venice and wants to see the "true" Venice from a local's perspective. We thoroughly enjoyed Eva and her husband's companionship as they showed us their Venice through the eyes of our camera and their love of their delightful city. We will tell all of our friends that this is not to be missed tour on their next visit to Venice.
Joanne CerasoUnited States
My family and I were in Europe for 2 weeks and had 15 tours. We are experienced travelers and Eva's tour was by far the best we have EVER had. It is worth every penny and more. She and her husband have a beautiful boat and customized our tour in a very personal way. They know every secret corner of Venice and gave us memories to last a lifetime. When we think of Venice, we will think of the incredible experience she gave us. I highly recommend this tour.

WOW!! What an amazing tour!! Eva is fantastic!! During the tour, Eva showed us many places to capture photos that capture the essence of Venice, but are "off the beaten path" and known only to the locals. When the tour was completed, we felt that we had experienced Venice well beyond what a tourist gets, and Eva brought us into the Venice that the city residents have. The boat portion was also amazing, with Eva further going to Venice areas known only to locals. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! A GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Larry & family, I am sooo happy You enjoyed the tour! Eva
