Venice In one day
Charlie_C, 08-07-2022
We had only one day in Venice and this tour packed in all the highlights. Our guide - Mateo - was warm, extremely knowledgeable, spoke excellent English and was full of interesting details about Venice. He also shared with us bits of his life as a Venetian which was fascinating. Our first time doing a private tour and our family thought it really enhanced our experience of Venice. The glass blowing tour was interesting and our Lunch was very authentic - off the tourist trek. Lots of walking, so wear comfy shoes.
This was the most amazing...

This was the most amazing tour of Venice. Matteo is so energetic and knowledgeable! He explained Venice in detail and kept us engaged the entire time. By far, this was our favorite tour in Italy.
Venice in a day. Wow!
Gary_S, 18-06-2022
Natasha took us all around Venice with her local expertise we weaved through side alleys less traveled and explored all over Venice learning the diverse history. Water limo was excellent, food delicious, and the glass manufacturing on Murano was impressive. Drop off and pick up were flawless. Highly recommended for a day trip to get the layout of Venice. We were only there for a day so it was great, however would also recommend if staying longer to do this tour day 1 of the trip to learn the local street cuts, eateries, and non tourist trap locations. Thank you!!!
An absolutely amazing day in Venice!

We had an amazing day exploring Venice with Nathasha, and I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to have a unique, highly customized experience with a very knowledgeable, multilingual guide. We travel a lot and use private guides, and Nathasha is one of the best we had. From customizing the day to our interests, to detailed explanation with interesting facts, funny facts and such polished, pleasant presence. We saw things we didn't expect (just walking through the market yet learning about local seafood and vegetables; touring the Grand Canal and hearing about the stories of the rich families from decades ago), it was a really fantastic experience. I hope you get Natasha for your trip as she made Venice unforgettable for us.
