Hello we are Marialaura and Elena, two official licensed tour guides in Venice!
We were born and raised respectively in Tuscany, and in Lombardy, we came here to study and we fell in love with Venice so we decided to settle here.
We both have a great passion for art and culture and especially we are promoters of sustainable tourism that is, in our opinion, the best and most respectful way to travel and enjoy Venice.

Our tour came in time of COVID and complete lack of other tourists in Venice. In spite of this Elena delivered an amazing journey across history and general “vibe” of the city. We understand so much more now and look forward to come back even more than ever before. I believe everyone should take a bit of time to let this tour change your view and understanding of Venice :)

This was a lovely tour and I left with a much greater understanding of the history of Venice, along with a few of its quirks. It was great to be guided along by a local with knowledge of history, art, and local restaurants. We moved to Italy recently and have visited Venice probably six or seven times in the last couple years, but now I have a fresh perspective and will forever notice so many details I hadn’t seen before!

I’ve had a wonderful tour with Elena. Even thou I was the only one who had booked the tour she didn’t cancel (as many others) and took all the time to talk about the not so touristic Venice and answered all my questions. Would highly recommend this tour with Elena!

Wegen der Corona-Situation hatten wir die Führung mit Mary alleine. Sie ist wirklich sehr nett und hat uns viele interessante Dinge über Venedig erklärt. Ich würde die Tour jederzeit wieder machen :-)

My husband and I had a wonderful experience, learning so much about the history if venice, as well as practical things like where to eat the best ice-cream or food. She explained everything really well and went out of her way to answer our many questions. We highly recommend our hostess and are very grateful for the wonderful experience we had.
