What a legend! The 3 of us did a most wonderful jam packed tour of Murano Burano and Venice. Many other companies said can't be done but Igor was able to exceed our expectations. It was informative and full of humour. It was a great way to also see the main sites in Venice. (This was not a trip where we spent time in museums). It was a lot of walking and private water taxis. Highly recommended.

What makes a trip an unforgettable experience is seeing a beautiful city through the eyes of a local guide. We were so fortunate to spend an entire afternoon with Igor in his “off the beaten tour” of Venice. I cannot recommend him highly enough! Warm and personable, intelligent and humorous, Igor is the best. Booking was easy, he is organized and responsive. We are still talking about his stories and looking at pictures of the amazing places he took us. Many thanks!

Igor gave us a fantastic tour of Venice! His knowledge of the history was broad and fascinating. He personalized our tour and brought us to locations we never would have explored. He was also fun to be with! Highly recommend Igor - absolutely excellent!

We had a phenomenal day with TourLeader Venice during our trip in late October. On the first day, Igor met us at the airport for a private water taxi tour straight to our Air BnB. It was a very informative introduction to the city and really the only way to arrive! Two days later, he met us at our Air BnB for a full day tour of Murano and Burano. There is no way we could have conquered both islands so efficiently without him and the water taxi. Not having to wait in very long lines for transportation allowed us extra time to enjoy the glass blowing factory, small shops and museums displaying all of the glass, walking tours of both islands, a relaxed lunch with people watching in Burano, and a great tour of the farm area. While we were on the boat for a lot of it, we definitely got our steps in and learned SO much about the city in a very interesting way that we never would have gotten without Igor!

I joined Igor on several virtual tours before our scheduled cruise that ended in Venice. He was full of information on those tours and was a lot of fun as well. On the virtual tours, he offered to answer any questions we had and help us in any way. I reached out to him and he was responsive and so helpful with finding a VRBO in a good location and making other suggestions for my trip with my granddaughter. I thought it would be very helpful for us to meet with Igor when we arrived in Venice to help us get oriented and give us some confidence for navigating that very beautiful, but confusing city. We had a delightful and informative private tour. I highly recommend his services.

Igor was the best tour guide and goes above and beyond. He took us all around Venice and we got to take a ride on a water taxi. He picked us up at the place we were staying. He knew so many people we passed in the streets. He had answers to all of our questions about Venice. He was extremely helpful and helped us formulate our plan for the rest of our stay. 10/10 experience. Recommend everyone takes this tour while in Venice!!

Igor arranged taxi and water taxi services for us and all transportation was on time. It was great! We had a very early flight and he arranged a water taxi right up to our Air BnB at 3:45 a.m. It was excellent service!

If you are going to go on a walking tour of Venice, definitely choose Igor as your tour guide. He is absolutely wonderful and was our most favorite guide of our whole trip. He kept us (my husband and I) and our two kids (7 and 9) totally engaged for the entire tour which is not an easy feat. You are guaranteed a fantastic tour with Igor!!

About me


Igor Scomparin

I’m Igor (that’s pronounced ee-gor, in case you are wondering!) and although you may not think it’s an Italian name, I am 100% Italian.

I grew up in this area, between Treviso and Venice and I’m incredibly passionate about my region and 2 cities.

I studied tourism, in Italy we have a special type of high school dedicated to tourism, and languages and I have been working in this sector since I graduated. I started in a hotel near Venice, then moved to one in London, which was an amazing experience.

When I came back to Italy, I moved to with Globus and travelled all over Europe, from Portugal to Russia and the North Cape to Greece. Seeing so many places was great and I learned a lot meeting people from all over the world.

In 2007, my grand tour ended, and I came home to Venice, where I qualified to work as a guide in the Veneto region (yes, in Italy you need a licence to work as a guide).  I love taking my guests around this wonderful region, showing them all the fantastic treasures we have here.  Whether you would like a tour of Venice, or a tailored, escorted experience with hotels, transfers and visits, let me be your Venetian expert!

If you have questions you’d like answered or have no idea where to start planning your trip, get in touch with me and I will help you with suggestions, hints and bookings.  I’ve been listed in Rick Steves’ guides to Venice, Italy and Europe since 2008, so I must be doing something right😉


We look forward to helping you experience all Venice has to offer!
