Elisabetta Amadi Private tour guide in Venice - Italy

Elisabetta Amadi

Guide profile:

I am an independent Tour leader officially licensed by the regione Veneto. For over 14 years I have been informing and entertaining visitors about the sights, culture and tradition of Italy.

I love working with visitors of all ages, and can gear any tour towards the special needs or interests of my guests. Specialized in shore excursion, my most-requested tours are the Islands of the Lagoon, a tour of the baccari and the legends walk in Venice. I also specialize in tours of the Dolomites, the Garda Lake, Padova and Treviso. I can also arrange museum or transportation reservations, and arrange all of those extra details to make your visit run smoothly. Or if you are an early riser how about a guided run through the city of Venice? Nobody else but you and the city with the perfetc ending: a cappucino at Rialto!

Tour minimum 2 hours, but hours and prices may vary and can be negotiated based on peak season, transportation needs, size of group, and type of tour. Day rate based on 8 hours, but my availability for tour times is flexible.

**** please do check availability before booking .... Grazie!

See you in Venice!

Really great. We totally recommend Elisabetta. She accompanied us on a 4 hour walk through Venice during an all too brief 2 day trip, taking us away from the crowded thoroughfairs. All we had to do with follow and listen. We stopped for coffee and then wine and roared with laughter together constantly. A perfect morning. Many thanks.

Elisabetta was fantastic! Her knowledge of Venice was great. She made the trip to Venice the best!

Elisabetta was a five star guide! She was very accommodating and helpful, even before we left the states. She answered all of my questions prior to our trip and guided us all around Venice. She gave tips on where to eat, where to shop, an "insider's" view on Venice and it was well worth it! The only regret I have is that we did not have our tour scheduled with her earlier on our trip to Venice. It would have saved us some time and money! We loved exploring Venezia with her as our guide!

My wife and daughter spent 6 hours with Elisabetta and loved every minute of it. She is extremely personable. Her love of Venice was evident in the care she took in giving them such a personalized tour. We would recommend using Elisabetta to anyone without any reservation.

5 stars Bill R. 14 Sep 2013

Elisabetta was an excellent tour guide. Even when we were late arriving in Venice she was waiting on us ready to roll. Elisabetta took us to places we would not have known to visit and showed us how to get around Venice without getting lost. Her suggestion for a gondola driver and places to eat were excellent. I would highly recommend using Elisabetta as your tour guide.

Elisabetta was our guide for our recent trip to Venice and made it a wonderful experience. She was so helpful in arranging airport transfers, negotiating payment for our gondala ride, restaurant recommendations and showing us a side of the city we have never experienced before, away from the typical tourist spots and showing us what the real Venice was like. A truly unique experience from a wonderful guide who we would recommend to anyone visiting Venice for either the first time or even if you

What a fabulous day! Elisabeta met us at the train station with a smile and showed us Venice as only a Venetian could. Her love for her city showed as she shared facts and history throughout our tour. I couldn't think of a better way to see the city.

We spent 4 hours with Elisabetta, we enjoyed ever minute of it. Elisabetta is wonderful, she gave us the history of Venice that we wouldn't have otherwise had she even recommended a restaurant and assited us in ordering our food. I would definately use her again.

We had a tremendous day with Elisabetta in Venice. As we have been to the city before we epecially wanted to see the quieter areas, away from mass tourism. Elisabetta is a Venetian and still lives in the city, so she was able to take us on a long walkabout as well as a trip to Burano. Her English is fantastic and she was as interested in us as we were in her. Highly recommended.
