Meet Igor

Igor

I’m Igor (that’s pronounced ee-gor, in case you are wondering!) and although you may not think it’s an Italian name, I am 100% Italian. I grew up in this area, between Treviso and Venice and I’m incredibly passionate about my region and 2 cities. I studied tourism, in Italy we have a special type of high school dedicated to tourism, and languages and I have been working in this sector since I graduated. I started in a hotel near Venice, then moved to one in London, which was an amazing experience. When I came back to Italy, I moved to with Globus and travelled all over Europe, from Portugal to Russia and the North Cape to Greece. Seeing so many places was great and I learned a lot meeting people from all over the world. In 2007, my grand tour ended, and I came home to Venice, where I qualified to work as a guide in the Veneto region (yes, in Italy you need a licence to work as a guide). I love taking my guests around this wonderful region, showing them all the fantastic treasures we have here. Whether you would like a tour of Venice, or a tailored, escorted experience with hotels, transfers and visits, let me be your Venetian expert! If you have questions you’d like answered or have no idea where to start planning your trip, get in touch with me and I will help you with suggestions, hints and bookings. I’ve been listed in Rick Steves’ guides to Venice, Italy and Europe since 2008, so I must be doing something right.

This had to be one of the best tours I have been on! I actually gasped with each turn of the gondola, at all of the beautiful sights and the information that Igor shared. I am searching for another tour with him and cannot wait!!! Thank you so much Igor!!!

It was really a 10. This was so much fun cruising along in the beautiful gondola with Igor & Said. Just booked another with them.

i loved "being in the gondola" and seeing the beautiful buildings. He offered lots of great options for postcards, sang a song, and told us about some of the famous mansions. Very enjoyable.
