This tour was amazing. The photographer was fantastic and gave us a wonderful experience. He asked us what we were after, my husband explained he would like off the beaten track, that is what we got. Places we would never have seen. He really assisted both of us with our photography skills.

Vinicio Tassani was an excellent guide and helped us with our photo skills, too. He comes highly recommended and I would send friends and family to him. The experience was one of the best from our European vacation.

My husband and I had a wonderful sunset Venice Photography Walking Tour with Vinicio Tassani on the 18th April. We arrived in Venice that morning so Vinicio was a major asset in both getting our bearings and also taking us out into the quieter neighbourhoods so we got a feel for the real Venice and some excellent photos away from the bustling tourist spots. The tour was for my husbands birthday present as a keen amateur photographer but Vinicio also helped me with tips to improve my iphone photos which I have since used back in Whitby in my home country. I cant recommend his expertise enough both as a knowledgeable tour guide for the city and also to improve your photography technique.

Amazing tour .. even though me and my wife only used our mobile cameras to take pictures it was fun! We went to quiet and beautiful photo spots and learned about taking the right pictures using your brain and not the tool. We also had some information about Venice while walking, highly recommended!

Fantastic morning spent with Vinicio - so worth getting up early to discover some of the real Venice before the crowds arrive. The tuition was excellent and I got some great tips for taking better pictures. So pleased with the shots I came away with. Can't recommend more highly if you love photography and want to go home with more than snapshots.
