Mattia was great! It was as if our favourite nephew took us on an extensive, 6-hour-tour of the city where he lives and studies: Very personal, friendly and relaxed. The weather was terrible, it rained hard and was very windy. No Venetian would even leave the house in this weather, but Mattia kept going, showing us hidden treasures and even took us to the rooftop terrace of the house where he lives! At our request, we stopped twice in typical local bacari for a drink and a bite to eat, and he suggested fantastic places for that. It is just worth pointing out that this isn't a tour with an official local tourist guide. We didn't mind as it gave us a very personal experience, but I think it should be pointed out in the description of the tour.

Took this walking tour on New year. Mattia, our guide was very helpful to cover a Good spread of Venice, given that we had only 6 hours of time to see this beautiful place. Would have not seen some important places without him.(its a labrinth) Walked some 13 km in a span of 4 hours, exciting.

Very nice gentleman who had both knowledge of the area and tailored the tour a bit to our preferences. Very relaxing way to start our explorations of Venice. We definitely felt more comfortable walking around and exploring the different districts and little alleyways on our own for the remainder of the trip.
