The best experience of Murano and Burano!

Venice and its islands should be experienced with someone who knows and loves the area, and Tommaso is the guy! As a native still living in Venice, his affection is understandable and infectious. We would highly recommend him for any tour in Venice and felt particularly fortunate to have joined him for a boat tour of the Grand Canal, Murano and Burano. We had a wonderful time and covered a lot of water and ground in four unhurried hours. Pick up at our hotel dock and drop off at our after-tour lunch spot on Palanca was special.

We enjoyed our tour of the grand canal with Tommy. He is a gifted story teller and kept us all engaged. The hour passed by too quickly.

Craig ★★★★★

We did a second personalized tour with Tommaso this time by visiting Murano and Burano by private water taxi. Once again his knowledge was incredible and the tour was well paced and greatly enjoyed. It was a perfect way to finish our time in Venice. We highly recommend Tommaso. He is a very nice ,kind and a true Venetian who has passion and enthusiasm for the incredible history of his city.

Tommaso was a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide! He is passionate about Venice and knows every inch of it. He helped us navigate the labyrinth of streets, great restaurants, museum, boat tour and much more!

We traveled through Italy for 10 days and during that time hired several tour guides. Our trip concluded in Venice and we decided to design a custom boat tour of the islands (Murano, Burano, and Torcello). Our tour guide was Tommaso and he made the tour special and unique for us. Unlike other tour guides, Tommaso led a conversational and educational tour but was also warm and engaging. We were a family of 4 traveling with two teens and he felt like an extension of our family. Tommaso planned everything from start to finish, including our personal taxis to and from each location, marking us feel like we were seeing Venice in style. We highly recommend Tommy for any tour in Venice, especially this one.

Our time with Tommaso was actually one of the highlights of our 3 nights in Venice. We decided to do this trip with our two children as a short introduction to the canals of Venice and to get an idea of the lay of the land on our first day. Not only did it do that, but also included the most informative and interesting commentary from Tommaso along the way, things that we would never have found out if we had just got on the public water bus for example, and being able to go down the smaller side canals was beautiful. The boat we were in was stunning and we could sit above the back seat and take in the stunning scenery. At the end of the trip as we parted he told us that if we needed anything just to let him know. It turned out we did need his help on our last day when our private water taxi back to the airport was cancelled because of a rowing race on the grand Canal (it meant that no motorised boats were allowed). Our existing booking said they couldn’t take us but Tommaso found a way that we could get to the airport via a different Canal. He saved the day for us, and really did go above and beyond. Thanks Tommaso, next time we are in Venice we will be in touch and will recommend you to everyone!
