About the tour

This time our gondola adventure will take us into the area where Mozart lived during the carnival of 1771, plus we will hear the stories of the big fire of the Fenice opera house that happened in 1996.

Meet 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.

Wonderful Igor! The best way to explore Venice (if you can't be there in real life!) is with Igor and Said. Such beautiful scenes and Igor makes me laugh out loud, the best combination of perfect setting and really good fun! There is always lots of insights into life in Venice too. At the end of this tour my tip button wouldn't work, I'm so sorry, I've never had it before. I absolutely promise to tip double next time. Thank you! x
