We are a group 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 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!

Tour description

Is it your first time in Venice? Are you looking for an introductory tour of the city? This free tour will meet all your needs!

If you want to know the origins of Venice, how the city was built, important monuments and churches and famous people who lived here do not hesitate to book our tour!
Each corner of the city has a unique history, that's why our tour doesn't have a standard itinerary, it depends on the number of people, the guide and the weather.
But don't worry, our tours are always off the beaten track!

We will also give you some valuable tips about how to organize your stay in Venice and how to avoid the most common tourist traps. We want you to enjoy Venice like a local, not like a tourist. That's the reason why at the end we will give you a QR code that provides a lot of useful information about public transport, gondola rides and our restaurant recommendations. 


THE TOUR IS IN ENGLISH AND TAKES PLACE EVERY DAY

Group reservations for more than 6 people are not accepted even when made with multiple bookings and you will not be able to join the tour.
In case your group is bigger than 6, we are more than happy to offer you a private tour with a customized itinerary for you!

A very nice experience, we leave the city with better memories than a few badly taken pictures of overcrowded monuments! I highly recommend it!
