Lucia was an amazing tour guide. We had a great time. She was able to get us onto this really pretty terrace that we didn’t even know about. She gave us lots of cool tips such as what the real gondolas look like and really gave us a locals insight into the best things to do in Venice. 10 out of 10 would recommend the tour.

Lucia is an excellent guide. Our group had a wonderful time with her during out walking tour of Venice. She showed us the Venice that locals know of and we also tasted some great local food while doing the tour. She answered all our questions about Venice and some tips we may need if we would like to explore Venice on our own.

Lucia was the best! Prompt, energetic, extremely knowledgeable about Venice, and excellent English. Made the tour interesting for 18 and 20 year old daughters (related to them nicely). Picked the best spots to stop in for snacks, shopping, and was great at suggesting other places for meals where the locals eat. It was great to learn about her home and its rich history through her eyes.

Even though Venice was cold and rainy, Lucia's beautiful smiling face and upbeat attitude made us want to hear everything. I will use her again the next time we come back and learn more about her city which is rich in history and quite interesting being on the water! We love spending the day with Lucia. She is such a gem❣️

Lucia provided a very informative and interesting tour of Murano and Burano. She was friendly and welcoming the entire duration of the tour. She stayed with us right to the end to ensure we were back on our cruise ship, which she most certainly did not have to do. She also managed to squeeze in a brief tour of Torccello. Would certainly recommend Lucia for any tour you may have in the Venice area.

Lucia was the BEST tour guide we had in Italy! She was personable, friendly, and had great knowledge. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and will definitely book her again for our next trip to Venice!
