Tour With Romy
Dec 2020 • Family
My wife, infant son, and I booked a tour with Romy. Her incredible knowledge of Venice, both past and present, will give you so much more information and appreciation for the city than you could ever hope for on your own. With confidence and ease, she will expertly navigate you through the labyrinth of the confusing streets and keep you hanging on her every word while she brilliantly recounts rich Venetian history in vivid detail. It was shocking to see all the little details she pointed out that we would have certainly missed exploring on our own. Kind to listen to you intently and remarkably patient with all of your questions, Romy is far and away the single best guide we have ever had, in any country. When you part ways, you'll feel as if though you are saying goodbye to a dear friend. It's at that moment you'll suddenly realize, that among all of the awe inspiring beauty that surrounds you, truly the greatest hidden gem in all of Venice, is Romy.

Private tour of venice
Jul 2020
Romy was a fountain of information. She answered any question we put to her, whether it was on history, art or culture. We were able to access places that we would not even have known about, which really added to our enjoyment of this amazing city. A walking tour with Romy was an immersion in all things Venetian. A very personable and knowledgeable guide. Thanks, Romy! PS. We actually travelled July 2019, pre Covid

Venice with Romy, actual date May 2019
Jun 2020 • Couples
Absolutely charming. Very informative. And we changed up the usual plan ... More talking and wandering. Romy is the type that you would love to listen to all day. A native Venetian. Her crystal blue eyes twinkled with home town pride!!! Thanks for bringing the sunshine for our day in Venice too!! 😎

Didn't show up.
Sep 2020
Cancelled by operator and didn't show us the courtesy of even letting us know. We arrived at the rendezvous point and it was only when I checked my emails after waiting 15 minutes that we found from Viator that the operator had cancelled the previous evening without explanation.

Still haven't had an explanation and as this was a proivate tour I cannot envisage it was down to low numbers of attendees. Very disappointed, however we used the money to good effect sorting out our own day.

We had a very knowledgeable tour guide, Mateo, from whom we learned a great deal about the history of Venice, art and architecture. The boys loved the tour of the dungeons and the weapon rooms as well as the gondola ride.

Jun 2019 • Couples
Emanuele was great from start to finish. He was available to answer
all our questions before the trip and also offered us advice while on
our trip about places we should and should not go to. The tour was
everything we hoped for and more. He took us to a hidden spot where we
could survey the landscape and it was breathtaking. The gondola ride
was great as he gave you a peak into the history of the gondola and
history of Venice. Highly reccomended.

Wonderful tour of San Marco square and gondola ride through beautiful Venice!
Apr 2019 • Friends
My cousins and I toured San Marco square, the old prison and the Basilica with Lucia. Lucia educated and entertained us with all the rich history and beauty of Venice. We traveled the canals in a gondola and enjoyed all the sights and sounds of the area. A wonderful experience I would do again. Thank you.

Venice with Romy
Mar 2019 • Family
We had a great time with Romy on our 3 hour tour of Venice. She was
very knowledgeable and took us to historical places as well as her
favorite gelato shop. There were 4 of us ranging in age from 52 to 16
and we all had a great time. I would recommend Romy (she was born and
raised in Venice) if you want to see the famous parts of Venice and
some smaller, quieter sections.
