Our guide was amazing! So glad we got the tour with Frederica . She gave us the local's view of life in Venice, plus a good historical perspective. We totally enjoyed the tour and went to several of her recommendations during our stay.

Absolutely positively value for money with this tour. Guided by an art historian, we skipped the line as promised and got as good a look at everything open to the public as possible with the crowds. Our guide had actually done part of her studies in the Vatican museums, and was able to give background to many of the pieces of art we saw. She even disbanded the tour inside the gates so if you wanted to go back and climb the dome you could. Loved it! Can't avoid the crowds though.

This tour was fantastic. We had a very nice guide and she gave us great insights about Venice. Skipping the lines to the Duomo and to the Doge's palace was the best thing we did - the queue was about 2h wait.

Tye tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area but also providing insight into the daily lives of those living in Venice. He provided us with an idea of what Venice looked like in bygone years with descriptions but also pictures. He was very prepared and gladly answered any and all questions asked. He made sure we were comfortable during the tour which was nice since we wre with hi for several hours. It was a great tour.

Our guide was very informative and we learnt alot by doing the tour with her. It's a great way to see the important sites when you have limited time. You will see some really spectacular sites on this tour.

Fantastic tour - Federica was one of the best guides we had in our two week holiday throughout Italy. Excellent!

Our guide was outstanding. We had been to Venice once before but did not venture into the interior of either of these sites. The narration and the explanation added to the amazement of what the citizens constructed hundreds of years ago and how they have stood the test of time. Truly a testament of what humans have accomplished without the use of modern day tools. The ceiling tiles of St Marc's and the enormity of the Doge's palace should not be missed on your first visit. We chose well.

Our guide was great in this tour. While those coming to Venice are amazed by the canals, we were blown away by walking through the town - the narrow lanes, the sudden huge squares and great canal side walks. It is no doubt very crowded, but this tour is the best way to get the feel of whole of venice in 4-4.5 hours. Make sure you take the Doge's Palace tour as well. Having come till Venice, it is simply not worth to miss this.

This was a wonderful walking tour; our guide Francesca taught us so much about the city without overwhelming us. We were much better informed for the additional days of our stay. The tour through St. Mark's and the Doge's Palace were also wonderful. The only thing I would change is to allow us a few minutes to look in the gift shop at St. Mark's; I wanted to buy a book about the mosaics and didn't have any time to browse. Over all we would highly recommend this trip.
