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.

We were a family of 5 (kids were 16, 10, 4) and LOVED every minute of this tour. Antonella was AMAZING! Very informative and included the kids in conversation. It was a small private group which was nice with COVID restrictions. Masks on the whole tour. Just enough time on Murano to have a tour of the glass factory. Wish we had a little more time on Burano as there was more to see and do there. But we were able to meet with the lace lady in action, wander the streets to find cookies, quick lunch, gelato, and pics.

Me and my wife had an amazing time with Francesco! He’s a Milanese native with a lot knowledge of the city and its culture and food. He took us to true local spots and introduced us to some wonderful locals. He was entertaning, intelligent, and great storyteller with loads of personal stories. We did this tour on our first day, at the end, it turned out to be the best activity we did! I highly recommend tour provider Withlocals and Francesco to anyone looking to learn about Milanese food, drink and culture.

Valerio war sehr freundlich und informativ und sprach perfekt deutsch. Die Tour war Covid-19 bedingt, etwas abgeändert aber trotzdem sehr schmackhaft und informativ. In winzigen Hintergässchen, die man sonst nie gefunden hätte, haben wir die mit den traditionellen venezianischen Köstlichkeiten kennengelernt. Insgesamt ein unterhaltsamer, lukulischer Ausflug zu den gut versteckten, ursprünglichen Lokalen der Venezianer. Außerdem danken wir für die Rezepte zu so mancher Köstlichkeit, die wir genossen haben!

The tour with Loris was just WOW! He was authentic and he knew everything about Venice and it's history The food stops were great (not touristic at all) and we tried a lot of real Italian treats! I recommend to go with hunger as you will get a LOTS of yummy food. Between all the eating, we were walking through this amazing scenery of Venice, which is now even more beautiful and authentic, now there are way less tourists. I will recommend this tour to all my friends who will go to Venice!!
