We are a group of people composed of freelance tour guides who decided to work toghether to support authentic and local Venice, the city we live in and that we truly love. We are not part of a big multinational company but we are all licensed tour guides who support local traditions, local business and culture. Most of all, we proudly encourage sustainable tourism, which is the concept of visiting a city, as a tourist, and trying to have a positive impact on its environment, its society and its economy. We truly believe that this is the most important thing, especially in a city like Venice!

Simone did a great job! She gave us really interesting information about the venezian way of life. She is a good storyteller and has a great humor.
