This was excellent. Meeting place was clear and well organised and the guide was charming and witty with good English - despite it being her first tour in this language. Saw some interesting places not on the general tour and no queuing.
Thoughoughly enjoyed this tour. The guide was witty, well informed and considerate. Meeting venue was well organised. Similarly, the boat trip was smoothly arranged and the boats not overcrowded.
Great tour guide and interesting walking tour. Wish the tour of St Marks' was longer though.
the tour was well organised. The tour guides were also very good.
Rosanna gave a wonderful tour in the city. Christina was very good for the boat ride through the grand canal.
Great tour, well organised.
Great tour!!! Both guides were excellent, well informed, pleasant and professional. Would recommend to friends. Grazie!
Loved both parts of the tour. Both the land and boat tour guides were excellent. Would definitely recommend this tour. Venice was the end of an 11-day cruise and truly enjoyed the tour.
The two tours were great! The walking tour was well organized and easy to find the starting point. The tour was punctual and finished on the proposed hour. this gave us enough time to browse for ourselves and have a lunch at our leisure before the Boat tour started. The guides on both were fluent in English and provided great content, all with lots of Italian passion and detail. Highly recommended.
Very good walking tour and excellent boat tour!
This was a great way to learn about Venice and see so much of it in one day. We had excellent tour guides who provided lots of information and with a great sense of humor. The only thing I would want people to know is that there may be a break between when the walking tour ends and the boat tour begins. For example, we did the 1:45p tour, and the walking portion was about 2-4p, and the boat tour was either 4:30-5:30 or 5:30-6:30 assigned by the tour group. Just wanted you to be aware in case you make other plans for after the tour. We had opera tix for that night, so we were a little pressed for time in the end... but it was totally worth it and would highly recommend this tour to others!!
Our guides were very informative and knowledgeable of the culture and history of their city. Although a whistle-stop tour, it gave us a very good appreciation of the background and history of Venice.
During the walking tour, we could not hear the tour guide clearly due to the poor reception of the radio set. Walking tour is interesting, with the tour guide providing us with the necessary information for each item. The boat ride provided us with a closer look to the various waterways at Venice, and it's probably more worthwhile then taking the gondola rides.
Great tour, very informative. Guide was brilliant. Highly recommend.
Walking tour was very informative, guide explained everything well, enjoyed boat tour best great way to see Venice
BEST WAY TO GET AN INITIAL TASTE OF VENICE
I found the walking tour a bit 'same same' after a while, it felt like all the streets were the same and there weren't too many sights or monuments etc. to point out. It also went for a few hours on a hot day but there wasn't the opportunity to stop for a cool drink. The boat tour was fantastic, we did this in place of a gondola tour and were very happy with our choice.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. However, at the end of our tour she collected our audio equipment and left us. No problem, except she didn't explain how to exit from Doge's Palace. We wandered around for nearly 15 minutes by backtracking and finally came upon a gift shop were able to exit the building. We enjoyed the tour, but were surprised to find it difficult to get out of the building.
The tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We get to stand at the back of the motorboat and experienced Venice from the water on the Grand Canal. Would recommend this to anyone.
Amazing tour! Really detailed and interesting. The guide was great and very knowledgeable. We took this tour and then walked around the main parts of the palace that people not on the tour have access to and that was fine for us. Would recommend!
We had a fantastic time on our tour of Venice. Our tour guides on the walking and boat tour were very knowledgeable. We especially enjoyed the boat tour, it was nice to get a different perspective of Venice.
Great value to skip some really serious queues and an opportunity to see Venice slightly away from the crowds.
St. Mark's was amazing, and we enjoyed the walk through the back alleys and narrow streets that we would not have discovered by ourselves.
Very interesting tours Frederica was extremely knowledgeable and obviously loved her Wonderful City
Didn't really affect us BUT was unexpected delay between walking tour 11:20 for 2hours and Boat trip 17:20hrs Many others upset by this and some could not take the boat trip as they had made other arrangements for the evening !! Would suggest that this delay is explained CLEARLY PRIOR to tour being offered Christina also very god on the boat trip
Our walking tour guide was an articulate Venetian who lived just a sort distance from piazza San Marco and. clearly loved her city and heritage. She gave us a great introduction to Venice and its history
