Diana was fabulous. We hired her and a water taxi to give us a tour of the Grand Canal, several smaller canals, Murano, St. Mark's Basilica and Square. She was informative but also very fun with a dry sense of humor. Her English was excellent. We would hire her again for a tour of other parts of Venice.

We arranged 2 half day private tours with Laura during our Venice cruise stopover. She arranged the water taxi for a wonderful canal tour meeting us at the cruise ship harbour. Unlike many other private tours we have taken over the years, Laura provided just the right amount of information in a most relaxed manner that we all appreciated. She pointed out many interesting peculiarities of the city and was attentive to the interests of our small group.
If you are looking for a knowledgeable native Venice guide with a personable touch, Laura fits the bill.

We had a fantastic visit to Venice with Maria Colombo. We (sadly) had only a day to visit, having flown into Marco Polo airport. We had arranged a ride with Venice Link to be taken directly to St. Mark's square. Maria met us there, and took us on a three hour tour of the area, including a 2-hour walk through the square, the cathedral, the Rialto area, and then a private water taxi ride for one hour which she arranged for us. We had the Beginner's Tour. She was great! She explained everything clearly, and at a level that was both interesting but not overwhelming. Our three kids 15, 17, and 20 liked the tour very much. Maria's education and time at the museum made her very knowledgeable. Of course, skipping the lines to enter the cathedral was great, but the best was her personal perspectives on life in Venice, and how to see Venice. I really liked her understanding of how Venice was shaped historically/politically, but she also knew a lot of the current issues facing Venice. Maria was really wonderful: easy-going, helpful, funny, with great English. If I visited again, I would ask for Maria again, but I think the Venice with a Guide group is the way to go, since it offers different types of tours that are directed toward what you want to learn about. I got the link from a friend. http://www.venicewithaguide.com/chi-siamo.html

This was our first visit to Venice and Laura was recommended to us by some friends. We would not normally use a guide and were a little apprehensive especially with 3 teenagers but Laura certainly didn't disappoint she made the tour an amazing experience. Laura also helped us in choosing restaurants which was invaluable. We certainly experienced more of the magic of Venice with Laura's guidance and her wealth of knowledge of the city she made our trip more enjoyable and we would not hesitate in recommending her.

We contacted Laura via the Internet, not knowing anything about Venice. We feel very fortunate that we found such an awesome Guide. Her knowledge of this beautiful city was amazing. We left knowing so much, and seeing so much with our 2 hour tour. We would not have known which direction to head in without her, and feel we would've probably gone around in circles without her, wasting a lot of time! She gave us advice on where to head to the next day, which was also very helpful. We can't say enough about Laura, and the wonderful tour we had of Venice! She was very professional, and also down to earth, which is a fantastic combination for such a tour like this! Her English was terrific, my husband speaks Italian, but myself & my daughter do not. She was very conscious of speaking English so we would totally understand all the information given. We just can't say enough about our brief time together!
