Our tour leader Antionetta was a wonderful guide, full of local knowledge of this beautiful part of Venice.She made the walking tour come alive, giving us valuable information and knowledgable insights re times and periods. It was a great tour. Thanks again Antionetta.
It was absolutely worth it to take this tour so that we didn't have to wait in the long lines outside of St. Mark's Basilica. Our tour guide was great and knowledgeable.
This was a great way to see Venice in a couple hours and get an insider look. Our tour guide was very knowledgable, she walked us around town and was indeed able to keep us away from most of the crowds (and it was CROWDED!). The value for your money is definitely there. The only thing was we were hoping to spend a little more time inside St. Mark's and explore the amazing basilica.
Not only did we skip that long line, we were given a lovely tour of the basilica. The lead up walking tour was extremely informative, interesting and entertaining. A must for Venice!
This tour is a must do - well worth the money.... The tour guide was very informative and it was great to skip the large queues at the basilica. We enjoyed it and would definitely recommend doing it
Really great tour, guide was v.knowledgeable. St Marks was amazing and got in super quick (normal queue was 2 hours long!). Definitely worth doing!
We would strongly recommend this to anyone visiting Venice. The tour guide was excellent and the value for money spent was also excellent!
Excellent tour. learned a lot during our excursion around the Basilica and surrounding area. Our guide was very knowledgeable.
An excellent good value for money tour. The guide struck the correct balance of informing without trying to make us world experts on Venice. A good use of your time and skipping the queue is an absolute must unless your holiday is a 'standing in line break'.
Our guide was so much fun. She was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about all the history of the Venice usland of Venice and saint marks.
We really enjoyed this tour and we were happy to skip the line during the Easter weekend crowds!!! Our tour guide wasvery informative and pointed out sites we wouldn't have otherwise known about. she also suggested going over across the water to San Giorgio's bell tower for a great view of Venice and St. Mark's.
Very enjoyable tour with a knowledgeable guide giving lots of background info. Very pleased we booked this.
Useful to be able to skip the long lines at midday when it is very busy.
Thank goodness we signed up for this tour - saved us hours of waiting in line and was a wonderful way to start our vacation in Venice.
Enjoyed listening to the story of Venice. Was easy to find the Guide and on time. Having your own Radio was a great idea. The lady was very informative and friendly. Will definitely book more tours with viator and especially when we go to Venice again as there is lots more to see that you don't see on your own. Well Done Viator!!
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.
