Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about all phases of St. Mark's, Venitian art, and life. Great tour!
Really good and very interesting, your chosen guide was great and had excellent knowledge of history and local information, together with a good sense of humour too.
The guide was very informative and went beyond the normal 2-D recitation of facts that you often get on such tours. Instead, she also supplied us with social, political and economic insights to the history of Venice, and did so in a way which was both engaging and often humorous.
Loved the guide. St. Marks is so so amazing. Liked hearing about the history, construction and politics behind the basilica. Loved going down all of the alley ways like a local Venetian. This was my favorite tour!
This was a fascinating tour of St Mark's and of the central Venice area. Like the Doge's Palace tour, it was made so good by the enthusiasm and knowledge of the tour guide, in this case Kristina. Finding the location for the start of the tour was easy - good instructions! The two-hour tour went by so quickly. Everyone going to Venice for the first time should make this one a must.
Enjoyed this tour. The person taking the tour was well informed. Took us through St Marks Basilica followed by an excursion of the back streets of venice. I would book this tour again.
Wouldn't have learnt half as much about Venice if we hadn't gone on this trip the young girl that took us around was full of knowledge would highly recommend doing this tour if it is your first time in Venice.
This is a great way to get to know the history of Venice. It is particularly ideal if like my wife and myself, you take the tour the day or day after you arrive.
The meeting place is easy to find and the Viator staff were extremely affable.
Our guide was very informative and had a fantastic personality, making the tour constantly enjoyable. Sadly we didn't catch her name but we thanked her profusely for the great experience.
If you are going to Venice, be sure to take the trip.

The guided tour was excellent and very informative. Fully enjoyed getting to know the history of Venice. I would most definitely book future experiences with Viator.
Another great tour. The water was up in St Mark's Square at our appointed time but our tour guide changed the order of this walking tour until the water went down. Since we had lots of time and our tour of the Basilica was last we, in hind site, wish we had used Rick Steve's mp3 tour inside of Saint Mark's as it is hard for the tour guides to really do it up right inside these churches. I would recommend this tour.
Well versed tour guide and great sites. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Excellent walking tour from San Marco to Rialto, ending in time to visit the daily market there. Highly recommended even if this is not your first visit to Venice. Our guide (Gina) is Venetian and her personal connection added a lot.
The tour was excellent. Our guide was friendly and informative and gave us the most interesting insight into the history of Venice. We did beat the line at St Mark's Basilica and she gave us plenty of opportunities to take photos and ask questions. It would have been helpful if the meeting point had a signpost or name on it as several of us found difficulty in knowing if we were at the right place!
An excellent tour well worth the money. The local guide, whose name I can't remember, made the tour very interesting and informative.
Informative and interesting. Skip the line entry worth the price!
We were unable to enter the basilica do to a National holiday. That would have been nice to know. However, the tour went as scheduled and was extremely informative, well done and full of relevant information for the tourist that wants to understand the city and it's history.
This was our first visit to Venice and we were very pleased with the tour.
Love it. So much history to share. Awesome place to visit Highly recommended
We had a great guide, Louisela I believe was her name. She knew practically the entire history of Venice LOL! She was great, giving us every detail. Unfortunately it started to rain but all in all it was a very good and informative tour. Venice is hard to get around in, a map is nearly useless, just follow the signs on the corner of buildings and follow the crowds and make sure you get on the right direction of the vaporettos!
