Our tour was well organized and the guide was well informed and communicated well despite the crowds. We would encourage people to take this tour.
Its the last one hour of boat ride that is fantastic ! Recommended if visiting Venice on a short trip
This tour was the highlight of our 10 days in Italy! Lynn was such a knowledgeable and dedicated leader of our tour! Loved Siena, the lunch and wine tasting at the private winery and organic farm, San Gimignano, and going inside the Duomo and climbing the Leaning Tower of Pisa! Thanks Lynn for a most memorable experience!
The tour guide was a local Venetian and very pleasant and informative, directed us to the best hot chocolate and bakery/sandwich shop. However, the weather high tide flooded San Marco Square and constant rain put a damper on the day. The boat tour was later in the afternoon, still raining, couldn't see much, cold and wet. Highly recommended on a nice day, but certainly can't predict the weather when tour is booked in advance.
We decided this would be a good start for our mini break which included 3 clear days in Venice and I would recommend this to anyone as you get a great over view.
The walking tour was easy to pick up at the Gardens in San Marco and the large group was split into smaller ones which I presume was to do with the language spoken. Our guide Fredericka is a local lady, born in Vencie where she lives now with her family including 2 children. I could not recommend her highly enough as she was knowledgable, anecdotal, amusing and clear. The system of earpieces for everyone and the guide speaking into a microphone on her jacket was perfect as it meant you didn't have to hover around her to pick up what she was saying.
I must point out tho that Venice is not for the feint hearted or tender of foot! There are a hugh number of bridges of course and walking on paved surfaces is also very tiring, my legs ached so much that evening!
We had lunch and a very welcome rest and then back to the Gardens to join our Grand Canal boat tour with another guide, whose name I can't recall but he too was excellent.
Venice was beautiful, very clean, not a whif of anything unpleasant as I had been warned and the people very friendly.
Arianna was very entertaining in telling of the history of Venice as we strolled along the canals. There was a perfect amount of time for lunch by the Grand Canal before the fabulous boat tour with Sergio to see things from a different perspective. We were in Venice for the day just for the tour and it was perfect!
THE TOUR WAS JUST FINE, THE GUIDE WAS VERY INFORMED AND EXPLAINED EVERTHING IN DETAIL. THE BOAT RIDE WAS GREAT
Very pleased and satisfied with the Tour. Excellent knowledgeable guide. Even though Venice was full of people the guide took us to interesting places. The river cruise was very nice and we really enjoyed the complete tour. We will recommend this tour and Viator to friends and aqaintances.
Thank you - see you again in the future.
EXCELLENT tour. Freddie was my tour guide and she was FABULOUS! She was very knowledgeable and provided a good amount of history and information about Venice as we were walking to each site. I was unable to do the boat tour, but if it was 1/2 as good as the time spent with Freddie, this is great trip!
Great tour Freddie!!
This is the best way to understand and get the feel Venice. The guide on both the walk and the boat ride were well informed, also bought in every aspect of living in the city , the ways and challenges - one really felt in a short time the feel and warmth, understanding and history of the city - over and above the tourist angle - really appreciated
Great tour, our guide Adriana was wonderful. She was knowledgeable, engaging, and very kind. this is a must do tour.
This was another terrific tour. Our guide was passionate about Venice and it showed in the way she described every building, every nook and cranny. The walking tour was very interesting. As well, the boat tour was a lot of fun. The guide made it a fun experience and he too was passionate about Venice.
This was a very interesting tour and with a very information guide. The boat tour of the Grand Canal was brilliant and Christina's enthusiasm for her beautiful city was contagious! We would love to return to Venice for longer.
Venice day was broken into two parts with two different guides. The walking tour was full of details and anecdotes that enriched our visit to many sites. Free lunch and shopping time was good after walking and seeing stores we wanted to go back to. Boat tour in afternoon was exceptional. A must -do tour!
excellent tour - both guides were awesome with personality and insight!!! i learnt a lot of things about Venice which would have taken a lot of time had i researched on my own!!
Our tour guide was excellent. A local person she was knowledgeable and helpful and knew the area and its history well. Well worth it.
Our guides were very informative and knowledgeable of the culture and history of their city. Although a whistle-stop tour, it gave us a very good appreciation of the background and history of Venice.
This was a great way to learn about Venice and see so much of it in one day. We had excellent tour guides who provided lots of information and with a great sense of humor. The only thing I would want people to know is that there may be a break between when the walking tour ends and the boat tour begins. For example, we did the 1:45p tour, and the walking portion was about 2-4p, and the boat tour was either 4:30-5:30 or 5:30-6:30 assigned by the tour group. Just wanted you to be aware in case you make other plans for after the tour. We had opera tix for that night, so we were a little pressed for time in the end... but it was totally worth it and would highly recommend this tour to others!!
Loved both parts of the tour. Both the land and boat tour guides were excellent. Would definitely recommend this tour. Venice was the end of an 11-day cruise and truly enjoyed the tour.
The two tours were great! The walking tour was well organized and easy to find the starting point. The tour was punctual and finished on the proposed hour. this gave us enough time to browse for ourselves and have a lunch at our leisure before the Boat tour started. The guides on both were fluent in English and provided great content, all with lots of Italian passion and detail. Highly recommended.
Great tour!!! Both guides were excellent, well informed, pleasant and professional. Would recommend to friends. Grazie!
