Igor

In Italy there is a special type of high school dedicated to tourism, and languages. Igor has been working in this sector since he graduated in 1996 . He started in a hotel near Venice, then moved to one in London, which was an amazing experience. When he returned to Italy, Igor worked for Globus and travelled all over Europe, from Portugal to Russia and the North Cape to Greece. Seeing so many places was great and Igor learned a lot meeting people from all over the world. In 2007, his grand tour ended, and Igor came home to Venice, where he qualified to work as a guide in the Veneto region (yes, in Italy you need a licence to work as a guide). He loves taking my guests around this wonderful region, showing them all the fantastic treasures that exist there.

Igor has been guiding since Jun 1997

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.
