Very good tour guide, she was very inclusive and informative, excellent
Tour was very good. Our tour guide was very informative. The walking tour was at times a little too fast. The boat tour was great. Nice to see so much and our group was a nice size.
Our guide was excellent, knowlegeable, thoughtful (given the downpour, stopping to allow us to buy umbrellas), intrepid, and humorous. I would never have known the history of Veinice in such a hands on way, had I not done this tour. This is a great way to get a feel for the city. I would highly recommend this tour.
We loved this tour. It was very informative and our guide was great. It is definitely a walking tour so be prepared. Unfortunately we could not take the boat tour as it was later in the day and we had to go back to the airport to retrieve a left item. However, I would definitely recommend this tour.
Guides on both land and boat were very knowledgeable and quick witted. The tours were a great way to learn about the history of Venice, and about some of the current day issues.
An exemplary walking tour around Venice, our guide a true Venetian was very knowledgeable. The walk is of a good pace and covers a lot of the San Marco area. It starts at Saint Marks square and into the Basilica where she explains in detail all you are seeing.
The out into San Marco on foot over bridges and canals into the quieter less Tourist areas before returning to the tumult and jostling around Rialto bridge.
You the have free time, for us we returned to our hotel for a shower (the tour is hot work in the sun) and a sandwich before returning 2 1/2 hours later for the boat tour.
WE found the boat tiur to be perfect, we went around the grand canal, out into the lagoon , past the graveyard and Murano in a comfortable boat with the sun on your back and wind in your hair whilst the guide expertly points out the history of what you are seeing.
Two Lovely tours in one day, very impressed.
This was an awesome tour. It was well organized, a balanced number of tourists per group and the guide was extremely knowledgeable and spoke fluent English. The sites were amazing.
Good guides from venice and coherent wireless sets with running commentary....the boat tour can be 4 hours after the walk around venice
Great tour guide (Suzanne) who is very knowledgable with great sense of humor. We enjoyed it. The boat ride part of the tour was very enjoyable as well. Great!
Great tour for someone visiting Venice for the first time. Had a great time!
An excellent tour. Glad we booked ahead as I saw many others who tried to book on the day but missed out because the tour was full. Well organised with a very knowledgeable guide who obviously enjoyed giving us a very entertaining and educational insight into Venice. Loved the boat ride into the canals later in the afternoon. Would highly recommend this tour as soon as you arrive as you're then ready to explore on your own with great confidence.
This tour was a perfect way to see the highlights of Venice by both land and sea. Skipping the line in Venice is a must if you want to see multiple sites in one day and really get a taste for all of the incredible things Venice has to offer. Saint Mark's cathedral is a must see and honestly an hour and half wait in the hot sun is not the best use of your time. The guided boat tour later in the afternoon was great and gave us some amazing views and wonderful history about the Venetian lifestyle.
This is the way to get introduce to Venice especially if you want to skip the crowds and learn a lot in a short period of time. We love both of our local guides and the walking and boat tour work really well together. Keep in mind the water bus does not explain the history either. My only suggestion to improve the tour is to receive a post walking tour map so I could go back and spend more time at some of the spots. Venice unlike any where else is hard to relocate some of the sites.
