Would recommend for your first day in Venice as it is a great introduction to the city. It did however feel a bit rushed but it was very insightful for the most part.
Our Guide was a woman named Marie and she was fabulous! We started in the courtyard, then moved through the Doge's Palace, taking back rooms, getting behind-the-scenes that certainly other tours don't do. Marie was fascinating and was so knowledgeable, she talked to us about one of the Doge Prison's most famous inmates: Casanova. His story while imprisoned was really a treat to learn. Highly recommend this tour!!

For my wife and I, the best part of this tour was the history of the city that our guide, Marina, shared with us and the tour of the residential streets and piazzas she took us on after our tour through St. Mark's. It gave us a taste and flavour of the city that we may have not discovered on our own and has provided inspiration for us to return at a future date and explore further.
Very good - liked the headsets
Both the walked tour and the boat tour were very informative. Marina - who led our walking tour - was so knowledgable and shared lots of interesting (and useful) information. We got to see the 'real' Venice going through the back streets and bridges. She also recommended an amazing location for lunch! Our boat tour guide, Mossimo, was also very knowledgeable. We had a fun time navigating around the paparazzi for the Clooney wedding! I highly recommend this tour.
Very enjoyable. Highly recommended. The guide was nice and informative. Took good care of us!
Venice is a beautiful city. Taking the Viator walking and boat tour was the perfect way to see the highlights when you only have a limited amount of time. The tour guides were very professional, informative and entertaining. The meeting place, a small park next to main boat docks, was easy to find.
Guides were very knowledgable. The guide for the boat tour portion was extremely friendly and personable.
I would highly recommend this tour to any person visiting Venice, both the Foot and Boat guide were personable and informative, would book again. Organisation and speed of tour excellent.
A great tour. Excellent tour guide and easily understood with headsets. Doge's Palace is well worth the visit.
Michelle was wonderful... great tour even in the rain and flooded square (actually pretty neat to be there when it is flooeded).
The tour guide was great
This was awesome. It was so cool to learn about the city from a native venetian and the boat tour was super cool. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend this to anybody who is looking to learn more about the city they're staying in.
The tour was organised efficiently. Our guide was very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot.
Both guides were clear and informative. Both were highly entertaining as well. These gave meaning to understanding how Venice is organized and its history.
