Thank you Vinny- we loved walking around Veice with you and seeing those sites that most tourists do not experience. Vinny's advice on photography has helped us to take better photos and to be more aware of the light and composition of the shot. A fantastic tour.

Excellent, makes you see Venice beyond the tourist hordes... Vinicio is a very talented and experienced photographer, with an international background. He knows Venice inside out and will take you to the less known neighborhoods, will also share with you good gourmet addresses. Highly recommended for all those interested in photography.

We had such an incredible experience with the photography walking tour. We were so appreciative of the opportunity to have a personal guide take us around and find the hidden gems of Venice. My daughter is an aspiring photographer so this experience enabled her to learn first hand how to capture the heart of the city and make the emotional connection to the locals. Highly recommend if you get the opportunity - it is well worth your time 3 hours and expense.

We stayed only overnight and Venice is the first stop in our trip. We are glad we booked this tour because we were able to walk to areas we were not able to see during my first visit in Venice years back. And we got good tips which we were able to use all througout our trip. My friends and I have different cameras which we were able to familiarise ourselves. We also learned how to adjust lights for sunset and night lights.
Vini is very accommodating. He answered our queries patiently even if our queries are not about photography like where to eat etc. He is also very kind to pick us up at the hotel.
I love this tour because my little knowledge in photography learned thru lectures were applied in practice. Thanks a lot Vini.

.This tour was possibly the highlight of our trip! Our guide was Vinnie, a born and bred Venetian and boy did he know his city. My only regret is that I did not book him for our first day in Venice-----then all my pictures would have been amazing!! We met with him on our third evening in Venice, so we had covered a lot of the major sights by then.....but Vinnie had a surprise for us...he took us to several areas we did not know existed because they were secrets of the locals! And those sights were by far the best kept secrets of Venice. I chose to use my I phone and he gave me some wonderful instructions and tips that I can also use with my DSL. It was a wonderful walking tour and a great way to end our stay in Venice. But I do have to say, my pictures of Croatia and Greece were wonderful as a result of his expertise. I would highly recommend this tour as long as Vinnie is your guide!! He is an amazing photographer himself and I really enjoyed hearing about his travels also. If I every make it back to Venice, I will book him again!!!! Thank you Vinnie!!!

Vinny was great took us to all the hidden places, gave us great photo tips and showed us areas we would not have stumbled across on our own! The evening tour is the one to take as sunset is close to 9pm and is a great time of day for photos. The only thing I wish had been clearer is that we could have texted or emailed him ahead of time regarding places in particular we wanted to see such as the Squero di San Trovaso-the old boatyard where gondolas used to be made. If he had known ahead of time he could have gotten us in. We didn't realize the tour was as flexible as that! All in all an excellent experience!

I had an absolutely fantastic tour with Vinicio, such a unique and special experience. I can't recommend it highly enough as seeing the parts of Venice so few tourists see was so special, I love my photos and will for a long time.

Really appreciated this tour. Vinnie is a pro photographer and just walking around with him I feel like I received a wealth of knowledge. Photos are great and getting rave reviews from my friends. Do this one if you want to learn more about the area, want better pics, and want some unique fun!!!

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.

Mario was superb. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Both places visited and guidance on photography were excellent and he is a charming, professional, and informative gentleman.
When in Venice - this tour is a MUST!!!

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.
