For me, this was the best tour we took. We met our guide nice and early and started as far away from the crowds as possible. We got to see some of everyday Venice, not just tourist Venice. And Mario was fantastic. He really helped me with the artsy side of my photography and was able to help me take better pictures of our holiday.

We spent 3.5 hours with Mario yesterday, and were pleased the tour was just for our family of 4. The photography tour was a refreshing way to spend our time and we loved seeing some of the back lane ways of Venice. Mario also told us a lot about the areas we were walking through. Mario was fabulous with our children (15 and 12 years). Our daughter had bought a camera the day before the tour and Mario even set the camera settings for her and explained the principles of using a camera really well. We loved learning more about composing photos. This tour was a highlight of Venice.

Very knowledgable guide, Mario is a professional photographer who had the patience to explain fundamental camera operations to great composition advice. This all took place off the beaten track in ares of Venice that tourists don't get to . Our photos are much improved and his tips are easy to remember and use.
