Fantastic tour with Federico in the southern Dorsoduro district! Really interesting insights into many aspects of the city and its history, and lots of fun with Federico's great passion and personality. Highly recommended!
Amazing experience!

I highly recommend Federico! He was an exceptional guide, his visit was dynamique, very well organised and captivating. Federico is passionate about his job, he knows Venice like the back of his hand and told us so many stories, anecdotes about the city that we would never have known without him. Thanks to Federico, we discovered the real Venice! Thank you so much and hope seeing you one day in Paris!
Great tour and even better tour guide!

Excellent tour guide. Federico kept in touch with us prior to the tour and ensured we knew exactly where to find him. He is knowledgeable and has a great balance of providing information and allowing time to enjoy the sites. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide... his pacing - both walking and providing information were wonderful!
Best Guide in Venice

Fedrico is excellent guide. We also did his secrets of Venice Tour.

While both were outstanding, this tour took us to a part of Venice we had not seen. The views are outstanding and less crowded than other parts of the city.

We had a fabulous morning, enjoyed beautiful lunch and while we were on our own purchased a treasure.

Fedrico loves Venice and is always available for restaurant advice after our tours. We can not wait to meet up with him again for another special day in Venice with unique insights.

Fedrico will customize his tours fir you as well. He is also not shy about recommendations and also places to avoid due to crowds or heat. He is the best
