Great tour! It was great introduction to Venice in a short time frame.
Great tour guide and interesting walking tour. Wish the tour of St Marks' was longer though.
Thoughoughly enjoyed this tour. The guide was witty, well informed and considerate. Meeting venue was well organised. Similarly, the boat trip was smoothly arranged and the boats not overcrowded.
Rosanna gave a wonderful tour in the city. Christina was very good for the boat ride through the grand canal.
This tour was a great way to see alot of Venice in a short time. The headsets that were used worked great and the areas we were taken to were navigated really well considering the crowds.
Both the walking tour and the boat tour were very interesting. The guide for our Venice city tour was very knowledgeable and gave us good info about where to get lunch during the break before the boat tour.
The guide for the boat tour was a little harder to understand but the ride itself was magnificent. Thanks for a great time.
Great to have a local to Venice who grew up and still lived there taking the tour. This offered great insight into life in Venice from personal experience.
Best way to see Venice and learn about all the history. Both tour guides we had were absolutely fantastic. This is a must do!!
Tour was excellent just long enough to see the sights. Guide was very knowledgable about the city and sights. Boat tour was excellent and enjoyable.
If you are staying for a day or two in Venice, this particular tour is highly recommended. You will learn about the history of how Venice became such a beautiful place today which will help you appreciate all the architecture much more. My guide , Cristina was super friendly and she did a great job explaining everything that you should know about the top attraction sites. Also the boat ride is wonderful! You get to go around the whole Venice city, the small and grand canals. You will not regret this tour at all! Take it!
We loved our tour of Venice. Having a guide that actually grew up in Venice and strolling through her neighbourhoods was awesome. We loved the city before the tour but really had a whole new feeling for it afterwards. The boat tour was great too. Highly recommend this tour.
I am so glad I booked this tour. The walking tour was so fantastic. Barbara was such a great tour guide. The boat tour was good but the tour guide not so good. He must have been new.
Very well done and organized with great tour guides for both the walking tour and the boat tour. We missed our boat tour time as it can take a while to get around anywhere in Venice between all the walking and water taxis, and when I called the local number, I was told to be there for the next tour time and they would put us on the stand by list, which they did. We got on the next boat tour with no problem. I thought that was very accommodating.
The walking tour was fabulous even though it started in the rain : Very informative!
This was a very good introduction to Venice, showing the off the beaten track parts of the city was particularly interesting. The boat trip was brilliant we got to see so much more of the city from the water and the water taxi's that were used were superb. We were so glad we took this tour on our 2nd day in Venice as it helped us have a much more enjoyable stay as we were encouraged to stray from the general tourist paths. Well worth the fee and a very informative guide who actually lives in Venice.
We really enjoyed this tour, guides were very engaged, though we'd have liked to spend a bit more time in San Marco. The walking tour is fast paced and very informative. Gabriella did a fabulous job on leading us on he Grand Canal tour, and we especially liked the back canals. Thanks to her, we explored some new areas and found a fabulous place to eat in a new to us area.
The people who were so late took away a bit of time from our tour.
Highly recommended. Our walking tour guide, Andrea, had a great knowledge of Venice and a great sense of humour to match. Sadly I can't recall the name of our guide on the boat trip, but he too had an excellent knowledge of the city and a wonderful sense of humour. I would commend this tour to all comers.

My wife and I gave it a 5 star for both the walking tour and the boat tour but of course the boat tour was our favorite. Both guides were very informed and fun!
Both tours were marvellous. Adriana was our guide on the boat tour, group of only 8. She was very friendly, knowledgeable in every way and my wife who admits to short-term concentration was spellbound for the whole tour.
The walking guide was also a very professional lady with a red umbrella easy to follow, a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Group size was only 9 but we may have been lucky. We believe she was a local was and a mine of information. She gave us a very varied tour including many facets of Venetian life both past and present. We think her name was Philippa or similar.
It was appreciated that we went into San Marco Basilica a wonderful experience without queuing.
Both guides were very pleased to answer questions. Fabulous tours.
Just to mention that the meeting place Royal Gardens was hard to find but once we realised it's Palazzo Reale on the maps it was the ideal centrally located, quiet place to meet right on the waterfront so close to San Marco. We suggest you put it's location on your website. Also several other people cruising on Royal Caribbean hadn't realised they could do the the boat tour the day before the walking tour fitting in with the boat docking and sailing times over the 2 days. The nice lady I spoke to in Vegas was very helpful and she specified on the booking confirmation how we wanted the tours to be split. She even sympathised with our dreadful weather in England.
We will use Viator again.

Great! We couldn't have been happier. She share excellent information, spoke clearly. This tour was a great first experience for us!
So glad we found aviator!!
Excellent walking tour, very knowledgable guide and great system of audio with earphones to make sure everyone could hear.
Boat trip guided was especially interesting - we saw parts of Venice that we would not reach simply walking.
