Igor tourleadervenice

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 tourleadervenice has been guiding since Jun 1997

The most fabulous tour ever!! Gliding through the water, under the Rialto bridge, into the sunset, with a wonderful gondolier and even some singing!

The tour was very eventful. It was good to hear about the importance of colors. The sight was beautiful. Realy loved to see the Grand Canal's word, and environment, and the whole historical mood.
