This was nice...give yourself lots of time to get there. You may wish to get there 20-30 mins early as you will be in a BIG line. The same excursion on Carnival was twice the price and the only difference was the transportation to St. Mark's Square was included.

This tour was really worth the money! The guide was so knowledgable; her grasp of Venetian history was amazing and she managed to get us into San Marc's without too much difficulty, especially as it was end of Carnival and the throngs of 'popolo' were horrendous. The 'hidden Venice' was fascinating. Wonderful experience.

English guide good but didn't get to skip the line to see the San Marco Church. We didn't even go inside as the queue was too long and there was no special line during Carnivale for groups. Tour only takes you from San Marco through to Rialto which you can see most of walking via the walkways.

We really enjoyed the tour. However, because we did this during Carnivale, a time when there are massive crowds, it was a bit hard to hear the guide speaking and it was difficult to keep the group together. We would recommend you do this tour when it is little less busy.
