First half is the city tour plus St. Marks church. Guide is friendly and well organized plus our guide was born and grew-up in Venice. So we had the best we can get to explore Venice with interesting unknown stories.
The second part (boat tour) was actually the best part. We had a small boat for roughly max. 9 people but very cute and cosy. The tour itself was actually worth the money! Cool and interesting places and not only the tourist areas.
overall - I would still recommend this tour compare to the condola tour!
Worth the money!!!
The tour guide had a well planned out tour of local campos, neighborhoods as well as stories about the prison, the doctors' masks and historical building. She also gave us a personal looking at flooding with her smart phone picture. Of course, we skipped the lines for the Bastille and that's what it what it's all about. The motorboat guide told stories about the homes and buildings along the open canals. It was well worth the money as it is very crowded in Venice in July.
This tour was well worth the price. Marina was a great tour guide. She was very knowledgeable about the city. You could tell she loved where she grew up. The boat tour was great also. We had to cut it short because we didn't want to miss our train. The guide and driver dropped us out close by. Great
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
