Susan was a great tour guide!! She was so knowledgeable and passionate about Venice and the sites it made it more fun for everyone. She answered all of our questions and really brought the city to life. We really were so lucky to have had Susan and all her knowledge!!
We knew from others descriptions that Venice was unique. That we could visit personally and experience that uniqueness was enhanced by joining the best of Venice walking tour. We were treated to great insights by an excellent guide who set a high note for us on the first day of a 5 week European visit.
Excellent tour. Superb guide. Really informative and at a good pace for all the group. We saw interesting sites which we wouldn't have discovered wandering on our own.
Mirocolo was a wonderful person to she us his town! He was funny and informative! Though we ad been on a similar tour on a previous trip he helped us to understand what it was like to grow up and live inVence!
The tour was very well done. Guide was knowledgeable and provided excellent commentary.
Very interesting tour showing some of the smaller narrow streets and little squares of Venice, taking us past Marco Polo's family home. Susan our guide was excellent with a wealth of current and historical knowledge of Venice - having lived in the city for many years. The tour took a gentle pace which would suit older, less spritely people, but not too slow to put off younger, more able people. The information given in the Basilica was very interesting, as it was during the walking part of the tour. It was great to skip the line at the Basilica also. Definitely worth taking a tour, as you gain so much more than wandering around on your own. Thank you Susan
We had a wonderful tour with Susan the other day. She took us on many back streets where we had never explored. The Doges Palace was the highlight of the day. Would definitely recommend this tour.
The tour guide was great at explaining the history behind Venice and the sites. the tour is recommended
Great history and great places visited! Our tour guide was so friendly and funny and knew everything! I would do this one again!
Our tour of Venice street, St. Mark's Basilica and Doge's Palace was GREAT, thanks in part to our wonderful tour guide, Francesca. She was very knowledgeable and interesting. The headphones were a great way to hear everything, and her English was perfect.
Susan, our guide, was a lovely cheerful lady who explained the various layers of Venice so well. She is English and lived in Venice until recently. She knew all the hidden passageways and lovely quaint squares and churches. She made statements like 'this is a great bar/coffee shop. I used to come here before work etc' It made it all so real. And we did go back to the bar/coffee shop and felt like we were locals!! Venice just keeps unveiling itself the more you walk. Do walk in Venice. There is so much to discover. Susan recommended we go to the Jewish Ghetto the original Ghetto and it is well worth the visit.
Excellent!! We all loved it and intend to go back next year
The tour guide, 'Freddy', was wonderful. She was caring, and gave a continuous informative commentary. Would recommend this trip to anyone.
Expensive but worth it, our guide was great! It was nice to skip the lines too and we learned a lot.
Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable, easy to understand. The boat cruise was lengthy, taking in half the perimeter of Venice and back through the Grand Canal. There was many sights of interest along the way. The walk was an easy pace and took us through some of the back streets looking at historic places of interest. Our tour of the Basilica included going up to the balcony that overlooks St Mark's square. Our guide gave a comprehensive talk on the meaning of the mosaic art work on the ceilings and walls. The tour itself was very informative and enjoyable, and we felt it was value for money.
Fabulous tour and guides!! I have used Viator all over the world and you cannot go wrong with their tours - always safe, informative and fun!
This was an excellent tour and well worth the cost. We totally enjoyed the entire experience. It was well paced and the tour guide exceptional.
Our guide was very knowledgable the tour length was just right, perhaps you could advise women they need both legs and shoulders covered for the basilica in advance.
Must Do tour. Our guide was Venetian and excellent in her knowledge.

Great tour and great tour guide. Loads of information and perfect to really get the feel of Venice.
Our tour turned out to be a relatively small group of 12. Our tour guide was great. I think his name was Mose but cannot be sure. He was easy to understand and provided a wealth of information as we walked though the streets of Venice. Seeing the people lining up at the Basilica and the Doge's Palace made us appreciate the skip the line aspect of the tour even more. Overall, a great time and well worth the value.
Our guide was excellent. Kept the group moving along at a good pace and was very informative with a combination of historical facts and humorous stories.
Mosef, the guide, was very well informed and was enthusiastic about what he was doing. Great experience! Would recommend the additional Doge's Palace tour.
The person leading this tour was very knowledgeable and amazing!
