From the moment we arrived, when Dan welcomed us from the balcony, I sensed we were in for a great experience. This tour exceeded all expectations, and was all about enthusiasm and passion for Venice and skate culture. Learned so much, and came away with much respect to the Venice skate community. Thanks Dan, for an absolutely delightful experience.

Wow, Dan not only knows his stuff he is so entertaining and totally stoked on life. His infectious vibe totally rubs off on you while touring around Venice. I could not have asked for a more amazing tour. I wish I had bought my board for the park!

Dan was amazing! I took my teenage son on his tour and we were both blown away by his warmth, his knowledge of local history and culture in Venice, and of course his deep and authentic skateboarding background. I can’t say enough good things about this tour!

I can’t speak highly enough about the experience we had with Dan. He is truly passionate about skateboarding and the Venice community. He offered great insights and unique information that only a true local could offer. Dan is a very welcoming tour guide and was able to cater the experience to our interests/knowledge level. The tour was a main highlight of our time in the area and I highly recommend it to anyone, whether you’re passionate about skating or not.
