We are a family of 3 (one child) from the USA who spent half a day sailing with Fabio and we had a wonderful time. If someone wants to experience sailing a traditional Venetian sailboat on a beautiful boat with someone who is highly knowledgeable, safe, pleasant, and good at teaching you how to sail the boat based on your skill level and interest, then we highly recommend going out in this Topo chioggiotto with Fabio. When we booked the sail we were not sure what to expect. It was easily the best part of our trip to Venice.
Such a personalized experience and so glad we went this route instead of a commercial gondola service. Nico is very friendly; he provided a private water taxi, let us bring our own bottle of wine and was very knowledgeable about the history of the city. We saw more in 2 hours with him than we ever would have on foot. He provided us with personalized recommendations for the rest of our trip and pointed us towards great restaurants! 5 stars
Nico was an amazing guide with such a depth of historical understanding of the Venetian Republic that he could tie together the architecture, arts, food and culture all around us. We had a profound experience having tailored our tour to be a total of 12 hours. We took him to dinner with us on Guidecca and he guided our waiters to provide the best offerings of Venetian cuisine. We had a truly magical first full day in Venice seeing it as it should be first seen: from the water And through the inquisitive eyes of our wonderful guide Nico. Ciao our friend!
This was one of my favorite things we did on our 14-day adventure in Italy. We told him we wanted to tour the small canals of Venice. He did not disappoint with the itinerary. He allowed us to reschedule our departure location the day before and dropped us off at a local restaurant we would have never found! I highly recommend Nico!
Nico and the whole experience was amazing. I contacted Nico asking for a private boat tour along the Grand Canal that included a stop off where I could propose to my partner. He was happy to help make it special and intimate for us. Nico was friendly and informative throughout the tour and also gave us time to celebrate with prosecco after the proposal. My now fiancée still talks about how magical it all was and we'll both remember that day for ever. I highly recommend Nico. Thanks again for everything!
Nico is extremely well versed in the history of Venice and was able to give us detailed background of every part of the city. He created such a special experience for us and we learned so much. We even got a special tour of the factories in Murano. We can't wait to meet with Nico again when we are back in Venice.
