We are a group of young native Venetian Tour Leaders, very proud, enthusiastic and truly in love with our city. We grew up here, between a "campo" (little square) and a "calletta" (small alley) and our families are living in Venice since many generations.
We promote and sustain a responsible tourism, to explore authentic local places, experience traditions and enjoy the real meaning of traveling!

    Matteo was energetic, passionate, and an overall enjoyable human. I’m so glad I started my Venice trip with this tour! I recommend this tour to people who have both been to Venice and if it’s your first time.

    A great tour, getting to know a little about Venice and its wonderful history. Very interesting, especially walking the lesser known spots and seeing a little of real life Venice.

    Wonderful experience. It is a great way to explore Venice and Luca was exceptional. He even gave tips and recommendations for navigating the island and surrounding areas.

    It was a sweet little tour that took us places we would’ve easily overlooked by ourselves. We loved all the stories our guide Matteo told us. Would recommend!

    Matteo war ein ausgesprochen freundlicher, sympathischer und engagierter Führer durch bekannte und unbekannte Orte Venedigs. Er ist selbst Venezianer und konnte auf alle zusätzlichen Fragen sehr gut antworten. Die Tour führte durch Cannaregio, durch das Ghetto, zu wundervollen Aussichtspunkten und endete an Rialto. Man erfährt viel über die Geschichte Venedigs und über die Hintergründe vieler Phänomene. Die Tour hat sich für mich sehr gelohnt!

    Our tour guide Enrico was fantastic - incredibly knowledgeable, very kind and thoughtful with his attention to the group; he made the educational event very fun! Highly recommend this tour if you’re in Venice - we had canvased a large part of Venice the 3days prior to this tour and he took us to an area we had not covered that was truly a hidden gem.
