the trip and one day tour was fantastic. Guides were knowledgeable and funny. the celery in Venice was beautiful. wwe only had 1 1/2 days in Venice, so the one day tour split into two parts was perfect.
Amazing tour! I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to explore Venice with an experienced tour guide. It was in English and provided so much history and information that I did not want it to end. The walking tour covered so much of Venice by foot, small street to St Marks to Marco Polo's house and so much more. The boat tour was perfect because so much of Venice can only be seen by boat. Small canals and hidden gems of the city were accessible buy this boat tour. Can not say enough great things about this tour.
Absolutely loved this, it was just enough for us to get an overall feel for the city. Our guide was wonderful, gave us a really good behind the scenes idea of normal life as a family man in this gorgeous city. The boat ride was fabulous too.
The walking tour guide was terrific. We had time for lunch before the boat tour. The guide for this portion was also terrific. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see sites other than St. Marks square.
Very informative guides, the walking tour in the morning was too much walking for my husband and he had to drop out, but I really enjoyed it, we then had lunch and met up again in the same place for the boat trip which was again informative and a real eye opener of the life of Venetians history. I wouldn't recommend the walking tour in the summer though, we went in November and it was quite crowded then, but the summer months would be my idea of hell, and following the guide very difficult.
Freddie was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. She was the best and a true Venetian. The tours were well worth the money and we'll definitely use Viator in the future.
The boat tour was excellent, and showed us the hidden waterways. We liked it much better than the gondola tour. All good!
Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and provided insights from her childhood growing up in venice.
For the walking tour portion we had a fantastic guide, Marco, he was easy to understand and answered all questions with out any hesitation, he also had a fabulous personality. Our guide for the boat trip was good, I didn't understand his name however, we explained everything clearly and seemed to enjoy his job. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Great overview of this beautiful city. Did this tour our first day and later went back to some of the highlights. Tour group is very organized, punctual, and has knowledgeable tour guides, would definitely do again.
Outstanding, best tour we took on our trip. Very knowledgable guide, friendly and made tour very interesting and fun. We saw parts of Venice that you would never find and was a great way to get a sense of the place and we went back to lots of the places later too. The grand canal cruise was definitely a highlight and must do. Small groups on boats made it perfect.
Very knowledgeable and very comic tour guide is excellent, and the headsets provided in a small group tour was a plus. The water taxi tour was awesome and exhilarating, showcasing the parts of Venice that a tourist seldom sees. This is highly recommended.
Guide was very energetic, professional and very informative about Venice. She made Venice come alive for those of us not from there.

Great introduction to Venice by foot and by water taxi on our first trip there. The two sections of the tour are handled by two different but very knowledgeable guides. Break in between two tours allowed time for leisurely lunch and wandering about the city. Guides provided interesting background both were passionate about Venice.
Great tour! Best part was the guided boat tour along the grand canal.
We all enjoyed both tours - but especially the boat tour - Barbara was very knowledgeable, funny and the tour was very interesting and informative, many thanks.
Really good experience!
Tour guide was very knowledgeable - learnt lots about the city - well worth doing!
Excellent morning walking tour, including St Marks Basilica- first we have been on and highly recommended, led by knowledgeable, local guide, Venetian, Marina. She made the subject come alive highly recommend her.
The afternoon boat tour however as not so good. The guide appeared to be tired and rambled in a mix of English and Italian it was supposed to be an English speaking tour.
Our walking tour was excellent. The tour guide, Ariane, was so friendly and informative, and the tour was interesting from an historical point of view, but also informative about the area as it is now, and the best places to visit, restaurants, etc.
The boat trip, was also excellent - there were only 8 of us, with guide, Georgia, in a lovely wooden water taxi. Again, lots to learn, and a different view from the water.
We had never used Viator before, but would definitely use them on any other trips now.
