Glad we booked this tour - very informative and we would not have known so much about the history of Venice and St Mark's Square if we had not gone ont this tour. Our guide was lovely and her English was excellent. Perfect length of tour if you are only in Venice for a few days.
Great tour. Hits all the main highlights of the area. I would recommend this tour. We booked four different tours with this company. Be sure to check the time of year for high water. Rain boots are sold at the local kiosk for around 15 euro.
Didn't exactly skip the line thanks to the flooding....but a very informative trip!
If you go to St Mark's Square I would recomend this tour. No queing, the Basilica is fantastic. You can hear everything the rep. sayes because of the earpiece that you are provided with. It was very interesting the facts about the history not boreing at all. We did the one hour tour but would have liked to carry on to the Doge Palace mabe next time. Just a note if you have a drink in the square afterwards they charge extra to listen to the music it is 12euro + drinks
We had a very small group because three people did not show. Since there were only four of us, we did not need the headsets and had a fantastic experience! Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. I would highly recommend this tour!
It was amazing to see inside St. Mark's Cathedral. However, we did have alot of trouble hearing what the guide was saying with our earphones. The guide was knowledgeable and did her best for everyone to understand her.
Well organized and very informative this was an enjoyable tour
Wonderful skip the line tour of the inside of the basilica, including the golden icon picture behind the altar. Out guide was very knowledgeable and was patient in responding to the numerous questions from some of the tourists. Highly recommended. Don't miss the Doge's Palace afterward.
Great tour guide! You could tell she loved the city and knew her history. Very beneficial for a first time visitor!
This was very informative. I'm glad we did not over-do it on the tours in Venice. It was fun to "get lost."
The lady who took us on the walking tour was informative, articulate, and really enjoyed her job. We felt it was great value for money and a very satisfying tour. Thank you!
Very knowledgeable tour guide, really knew her stuff, great start for getting to grips with Venice - would really recommend.

The guide was excellent, very patient, happy to answer any questions and she was lovely.
The trips organised by Viator were very exciting, entertaining and informative. Venice was a fabulous experience for me and my girlfriend and we would like to recommend the place to all perspective visitors. Also, if you book with Viator you do get great deals compared to other websites.
This was great. The guide was very informed and the pace was good. We enjoyed seeing the sites.
This was an excellent tour, only 8 in the group, with a guide who spoke fluent English and knew her history of Venice thoroughly. She was able to answer all our questions, and showed us fascinating backwaters of Venice, away from all the crowds. Excellent value, thoroughly recommended.
Interesting, you could see Mark square from the balcony giving you a different view of the place.
Very knowledgeable guide and we'll worth bypassing the line to get in to the basilica
Highly recommended as the line was v e r y long.
The guide was most knowledgeable and interesting.
We were 5 mins late arriving but the company and guide were very helpful. We were just able to get on the tour which had already started but not entered the cathedral.
The guide gave an interesting and informative tour about the cathedral and square although didn't answer all questions. For a first visit recommended, but maybe not for anyone wanting a more detailed history than that.
I did this tour to skip the lines to see in the basilica. Overall the tour was interesting but I felt a little rushed, especially in the basilica. The guide was knowledgeable though and the staff well organised giving out headsets etc
