The Best Tour You Will Ever Have!

Antonio is so impressive. I cannot believe how fluent and well spoken he is in so many languages. He has a true passion for Venice, the city he grew up in, as signified by the gold lion medallion he proudly wears around his neck. Our family felt like VIPs with fast pass access to all of the sights. It was like being with someone famous as we walked through the streets and he was greeted by locals as he treated us to some delicious gelato. I felt like my head was going to explode at the end of the tour from all of the history, stories, and facts he shared with us. We never would have seen the hidden gems around the city. We wanted to visit the glass factory on Murano Island to get a souvenir but did not have time, so Antonio used his contacts to get us into a special Murano glass factory in town that is not open to the regular public. We left with a set of beautiful wine glasses that will forever remind us of our special time in Venice. Antonio is a true gem, well worth the money!
Personalized tour from a native

Anthony provided a unique experience - not only was he knowledgeable but he was also one of the few native tour guides. You can see his passion for the Venice culture throughout the tour and he gets greeted by everyone! The ice cream during the tour and glass museum were a nice extra touch. He will tailor the experience to what the group wants along with keeping in mind everyone's time restraints. Accommodating for all ages. If you'd like to support a local tour guide, this is the guy!
Deluxe tour with Antonio
Moni_Monsoon, 22-11-2022
To perambulate in the wake of Antonio as he confidently strides through the narrow streets and under-passes of Venice on this deluxe tour is a joy.
His passion and eloquence sparkle like the gold in the Basilica's ceilings. And the energy in the way he brings life to Venetian history is matched only by the fury of Tintoretto's paintings in the Doges palace. A tour i would recommend without a scintilla of hesitation.

# 1 Guide in Venice, even better than I expected
bobfS6550AP, 19-11-2022
Our guide Antonio was outstanding. We were a small group just me and my two adult sons which resulted in a highly personal trip.
Anotnio is a proud Venetian and seems to know every nook and carnny in Venice.
We did the Doges Palace, the Cathedral, Rialto bridge and had lunch of panninis and cannolis in a typical neighborhood bar.
Our planned trip of 3 hours was actually 4 and half as we were so interested in everything.
Antonio was the best guide on our entire trip and more than met his repitation as the #1 tour guide in Venice
Couldn't Have Asked for a Better Tour!
