Excellent guide - she did not work for the "company" but was working that day to help out. She could answer any question about Venice's history. Really enjoyed getting away from the crowds by taking the back streets.
My wife and I did this on our first day in Italy and thoroughly enjoyed it. The starting location is easy enough to find and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The tour takes in St Marks Square and then you get priority access into the Basilica (in itself a wonderful experience). Following this, the tour winds its way through Venice's narrow streets and squares, taking in some great architectural attractions along the way. In summer, a water bottle is essential, though there are opportunities to stop for refreshment along the way. Overall, great value for money, and a good way to familiarise yourself with the complex, and often confusing layout of the city.
Our tour lady was great. She knew every sngle fact of Venice and very excited the sahre. This is a must and plus skiing the line is well worh it.
Excellent! The guide was very knowledgeable, able to answer any question, and made our tour a success!
A great tour with a fantastic guide (Stefania). Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared not only historical information but also threw in some local perspective. She made numerous recommendations as we strolled through Venice on the walking tour that were very helpful later on. St. Mark's is overwhelming, and the historical information and anecdotes shared by our guide made this a great tour. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to others.
We very much enjoyed our Venice walking tour. It started and finished on time. The guide, a lovely Italian lady, did a very good job. She spoke English very well and she really knew everything about Venice.
The tour was excellent it was a great way to get to know Venice. The tour guide was really good! you could tell she knew a lot about Venice's history and was really passionate about her work. We totally recommend this tour
Excellent tour of Venice and St Mark's. We had a great guide that was very informative and added nice personal touches to the tour. Her reminiscing about attending mass at St Mark's as a child was great. Gave the entire city some perspective once we heard her explain the history. Well worth the investment!!
First class itinerary, personable and entertaining guide, and just enough time at each of the sites. Well worth doing.
Our tour was great, we had less than 20 people with us, we were able to skip the line as well our tour guide was amazing she was funny and knowledgeable, such a great time!!
we enjoyed this walking tour since we skipped the line to see the basilica plus it showed us what life in venice is like. we appreciated the fact that the tour guide was a venitian - born and bred! he was so informative and accomodating. would definitely recommend this.
Our Italian tour guide was wonderful! She spoke excellent English, was knowledgable, humorous and made a great presentation. In addition to seeing St. Marks, we got a comprehensive tour of the surrounding area. It was a very informative and enjoyable morning!
