Helene (my guide) grew up in Venice and knew so much about everything. She took me to churches, piazzas, significant buildings, and we ended the excursion with an hour boat ride. The entire experience was absolutely amazing and I look forward to doing another tour with then when I return.

To say... More

The Basilica is the most incredible church we have ever visited. Helene gave us options so we could choose the ones that interested us. She took... More

We did a 4 hour tour that started with a canal ride of not only the Grand Canal, but a few smaller canals. And ended with a walking tour of Doge Palace, Bridge of... More

Although we had all been to Venice before, this felt like the first time. Sabrina our guide was extremely knowledgeable and an excellent host for her city. AGIV worked with us to create a memorable day that fit with our schedule and limitations (travelling with an 84yo). We came away impressed by the history, awed by the artistry, and amazed... More
