Tour description

Venice is so full of art, history and magic that you can find something interesting to see almost in every corner. That’s why we don’t have a fixed tour but it changes every time depending on several aspects: the guide, the number of people, the weather. For sure we will move off the beaten tracks and you will discover that Venice has a lot to offer and you will be able to see what usually tourists miss. We will avoid places like St. Mark Square because you can find information about them in any tour guide, and are usually they are so crowded that you can’t even hear someone speaking, but we will show you the biggest oil on canvas in the world or the first Jewish ghetto in history and many other fabulous places that you will probably miss if you tour by yourself. Moreover our guides, who have been born here, will explain to you something about life in Venice, a city which is different from any other place in the world, giving advice and tips about how to enjoy the city at its best. And everything it’s for free. At the end of the tour, if you liked it, you will decide if you want to contribute to help our organization to get its targets with a donation.
Tours are in English Monday to Saturday and in Italian on Sundays.

Good tour, in general just to finish in the fish market doesn't seem to ve the best idea

Andrea was wonderful. He was very knowledgable and a true Venetian. Definitely would have missed most of the spots we visited if I hadn't done this tour. He really mixes giving information and making some jokes in between well. Great experience.

Andrea was very knowledgeable, fun and passionate. We had a great time in Venice, and enjoyed the food courtesy of the suggestion from Andrea. Thanks again

This was a super great tour! Andrea has a real local’s view of Venice and he is excited to share it with people. I enjoyed seeing things off the beaten track and getting restaurant recommendations for non-touristy places. Andrea also has a great sense of humor which added to the tour experience.
