THis tour was excellent. It was really worth the money to skip the line and get all the facts by our wonderful guide (Emanuela). SHe was extremely knowledgeable. We also upgraded to include the Doge's Palace - well worth it!! The art is incredible and the history is as incredible!! The tour company is really Dark Rome Tours that the guide was from. Excellent!!!
Amazing guide did an incredible job of taking us through the city. This is the best thing we did the three days we were in Venice.
I saw more of Venice on this tour than I saw in the many times I have been there previously. It is an excellent introduction to Venice's neighborhoods and the tour of Basilica di San Marco was excellent!
Our guide Frederica was hilarious and she made this tour a top notch experience. The historical perspective was excellent and the Basilica and the Doumo were amazing. Thank you Frederica
A highlight of our trip. We took this tour within hours of our arrival to Venice and we feel that it gave us a very good feel for the city. The guide, Adrianna I believe, was marvelous. She spoke very good English and provided us with great information on the main attractions as well as the overall history of Venice. A great way to start our trip.
Wonderful! Very informative and fun.
We have never been on a guided tour before and as it was our wedding anniversary thought we would try it to make the most from our weekend in Venice.
Best decision we made. We were met by Arriana who was brilliant. Very knowledgeable and yet interesting having grown up in Venice. She showed us the other side of Venice as well as the St Marks Square and Basilica tourist side.
Besides the usual historical facts we found answers to our practical questions such as " where does the trash go?" The history of how Venice was formed from lots of small islands was really interesting.
The small group tour was definetely worth it as it was more direct interaction with the guide who had a good sense of humour but yet professional. The water taxi ride was excellent too.
Thank you Arrianna for a wonderful tour! Highly Recommended!
The tour was fantastic, it was my first time visiting Venice and this tour was a smart choice. We avoided the lines and the length and contents of the tour worked well with our schedule. I would recommend this tour as well as Viator to friends and family.
This tour was amazing! Frederica was seriously the best guide I have ever had. I visited Venice 9 years ago with school and this time I went with my husband. It was nice to have a guide that was able to make the tour exciting for first time visitors as well as previous visitors. Frederica was very knowledgeable about all aspects of Venice and I felt like she really wanted to explore Venice with us not just lead us around. She also created a great group atmosphere by having everyone interact with each other. We we all laughing and interacting with each other, a lot of fun!
I would highly recommend this tour with the Doge Palace addition, it is so worth the money. Hopefully you will get Frederica as your guide! Happy Travels!
Loved this tour! Tour guide was great! info was the right level of detail. Would highly recommend this tour!!
A fascinating tour, our guide, Frederica, was very informative and at times, very funny. She soon had the group, of mostly strangers, interacting with each other. It was obvious from her talk and manner that she loved Venice, and now we do too!!!
