We are a group of people composed of freelance tour guides who decided to work toghether to support authentic and local Venice, the city we live in and that we truly love. We are not part of a big multinational company but we are all licensed tour guides who support local traditions, local business and culture. Most of all, we proudly encourage sustainable tourism, which is the concept of visiting a city, as a tourist, and trying to have a positive impact on its environment, its society and its economy. We truly believe that this is the most important thing, especially in a city like Venice!

Totally recommend this tour!!

Alice was a great guide answering all questions with great knowledge about the city. The northern tour showed us places we wouldn't have gone to otherwise and made it a great experience with all kinds of background stories.

We really enjoyed our tour with Maria Laura. We just arrived the same day and got a very interesting introduction for our trip. Maria Laura didn’t just spot out historic dates - she also told us about the little legends and curios things in Venice. We highly recommend her and Guruwalk for a Venice tour. We had a great time and due to the situation we can say that we had a private tour . Grazie mille de Nico y Lidia

Giro del nord di Venezia. Molto interessante e piacevole grazie all’ottima compagnia della nostra guida Marialaura. È il modo ideale per andare alla scoperta della città fuori dagli itinerari turistici.
