Experience Venice - Private Guided Tours
Looking to spend an hour, up to a full-day, to experience the beauty of la Serenissima?
Venice is usually overrun with tourists from cruise ships, and so many of the options for tours and excursions and events are looking to cram all the magic of Venice's Byzantine streets and foggy corners into one afternoon or one day. Impossible!
Why not give majestic Venice the time and care it deserves, so you can enjoy it without being overwhelmed or overtired?
Some of our featured, custom tours include:
Mystery & Majesty in Monuments - Join us for a fun 3-hour highlights tour of Saint Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace. We will focus on the fun anecdotes and surprising key takeaways that make these such memorable places.
Real Venice - Venice is nothing but winding alleys and hidden corners. We will take you to the best ones with Venetian born- and bred locals.
Aperitivo in Venice - Stroll canalside learning about all the interesting culinary traditions in both wine and food that make Venice, and the entire region of the Veneto, so outstanding. Perfect way to end your laidback, experiential, and interactive excursion? With a classic gondola ride, of course!
The Pretty Stuff - Did you know that the Basilica della Salute, the Basilica dei Frari, and the Scuola di San Rocco (the Sistine Chapel of Venice!) are all easily walkable one from the other? Do you also happen to know that these sites hold some of the most impressive art & architecture to look at?
Scavenger Hunt - Traveling with children? Venice can be tough for them. Why not enjoy a morning or afternoon scavenger hunt that is designed with kids' "edu-tainment" in mind? Maybe the parents will learn something, too, while keeping moving in this light-hearted walk will be to everyone's delight!
Boat trip down the Grand Canal - Travel with our insiders in a private taxi ride down the Grand Canal. We will show off the most gorgeous palaces of Venice. We can also take you to one of 2-3 authentic art studios (furnaces) left in Murano, away from the tourist-trap shops that now cover the quaint island.
...but remember, we can design & customize anything to your wishes!
