Our family of five (two parents and three teens) had a wonderful 2.5-hour tour of Venice with Nico in June 2023. This was an A++ tour, and we were grateful to get the opportunity to see Venice as a small group with someone so knowledgeable. Nico was a great communicator over email before we arrived in Venice. He met us on time at our hotel and took us away from the crowded, touristy areas to quieter areas where real Venetians live. Nico was energetic and engaging, and delivered information at a level that kept our kids' attention (he speaks perfect English). He shared his experience growing up in Venice, and what life is like for people living there today. He also was full of information about the history of Venice and what makes it so special. We walked around for half the tour, then he took us on a water taxi tour. During the water taxi tour, he gave even more information about how the buildings of Venice were built and maintained, and showed us areas we would not have seen on our own. He tailored the trip to meet our interests and answered all of our questions. He also recommended restaurants for us to enjoy great meals where locals go, and took some special, keeper photos of our family along the way. Touring with Nico really enriched our experience of Venice, and only made us want to go back for more time.
