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.
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
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Venice with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.
The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Venice. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the guide’s hard work, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.

This tour has been one of my very favorites with heygo. It is informative, relaxing, beautiful, and entertaining. I love being in the gondola gently moving along each canal. Thank you for a brilliant tour. I’ll be back for more, for sure! You are a dynamic duo!
