Suggestions for Venice tours and sightseeing
with a professional licensed tourist guide


Every visitor to Venice experiences the city in a different way. That is why we offer that the visitor selects what appeals to him the most from the point of view, based on the "building block" principle. On this basis, we will create a sensible and appealing Venice tour according to individual wishes, which will take the visitor to the most important sights in Venice or to the quiet, secret corners of the lagoon city. Alternatively, we develop programs as introductions, specializations, etc. on request.

Our tours are based on the principles of sustainable tourism. As locals, we know that tourism can also be problematic for the places it takes visitors to. We counteract this in a targeted manner by showing a wide variety of ways to adequately experience this city, which is unique in the world.
Our tours are in German and always private tours, i.e. You book us exclusively for you and your companion.

Our tours can take place together with the Venice visitor in real time or in the form of an individual virtual tour in live stream or video conference from the visitor's location all over the world.
