Great tour and great tour guide. Loads of information and perfect to really get the feel of Venice.
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!
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.
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.
The person leading this tour was very knowledgeable and amazing!
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.
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.
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.
Very good as we saw parts of Venice that the tourist does not normally visit.
Great tour guide. We liked how the tour began on the water and also liked the walking tour. The tour guide was knowledgable and enthusiastic. Highly recommend this tour.
We are so happy that we did this tour! Our guide, Francesca was wonderful, very friendly, funny and knowledgeable! We would highly recommend this tour and are glad we did it in the morning when it wasn't so hot yet. It was wonderful!
This was a very nice walking tour, we have seen the most important highlights in a limited amount of time. Interesting guide, nice places and most important: skip the line! No waiting!!! Even our children enjoyed the tour!
This was a brilliant tour with an extremely knowledgeable guide. It was very well organised from the start meeting point, giving out and testing headsets to the one and a half tour around the Doges palace a quick break for toilets and the opportunity to buy water before we set off. A must for any traveller who wants to understand the Venetians and their history.
Our tour guide was amazing! She as an art history professor from England who has lived in Venice for 20 years. She was knowledgeable and engaging and even made special efforts with the kids in our group to keep them engaged as well, sometimes asking kid-level questions or making games for them along the way as we toured. This tour was well worth it!
Great! Though I would recommend to add as well the visit to the Dogos palace.
An excellent tour in all respects. Our guide, Francesca, was knowledgeable, amusing and informative, giving a superb insight into the history and sights of Venice in perfect English. The tour delivered everything it promised and I would thoroughly recommend it.

The tour was very professionally conducted. Everything went according to plan, with the tickets being given to us before entering the Basilica. The guide was very knowledgeable. The only issue was the lack of restroom facilities.
This tour was great. I wasn't so sure about Venice when first arriving but after this tour I had learned so much from our guide Francesca, I ended up not wanting to leave. It was great knowing about all the sights and little streets. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to learn some history.
Wonderful tour through the back streets of Venice and on to the Basilica of San Marco. Highly informative with lots of small bits of information that made it special.
Our tour guide, Arianna, was wonderful. She was highly educated, spoke English well, and knew so much about the art and the history. She was lively and interesting, and made the heat and the crowds much more bearable. This was one of our favorite tours on our month-long trip in Europe. Also, the fact we had only a small group was great. There was a mix-up at the beginning, though. nothing to do with Arianna The documents said the tour started at 2:00pm, and we waited and waited, thinking we were in the wrong spot. We finally found a representative, who indicated the tour time had been changed to 2:30pm --- we had not received any notice of that!
This tour was very informative and well worth the time and money. Our guide was charming and the visit to St Marks cathedral was the highlight.
Excellent tour. Guide took us to places where history really comes to life. Lot of experience and information given. Recommended for people with a thirst to know the place.
