Loved it. The combination of the walking and boat tour was perfect to see the city.
This tour I would highly recommend, the morning is very interesting and you see a lot of Venice on foot. In the afternoon you got to see and learn a lot whilst sitting comfortably, because believe me you do a lot of walking in Venice! Our guided boat tour was just great, the guide was very knowledgeable and kept us interested for the whole hour, I really didn't want it to end. A truly lovely experience.
Our tour guide was Gina... a genuine Venetian resident. She was very knowlegeable and passionate about the history of Venice. We greatly appreciated the tour and singled her out as the best guide of our 4 city Italy Trip.
Punctual, very good guide, informative. We liked the split between the walking tour and the boat ride. Both gave you a good feel of the city, and we had some free time for lunch and relaxation between the 2 tours.
Great tour led by a Venetian woman who gave great insight into how the Venetians view things as opposed to just showing us buildings. There was a good size group and we were usually in the back but we could always hear her just fine. Spoke English very well so she was easy to understand too. Would definitely recommend!
My only complaint is that the walking tour and boat tour should be scheduled closer to each other. We had limited time to do this tour and see the other sights of Venice, so waiting hours between the two parts of the tour made if inconvenient for us to see other sights. We ended up skipping the boat tour so we can make the best use of our limited time.
Would definitely recommend, guide was excellent and the boat also very interesting.
Excellent tour well worth booking for when you arrive as it's great for getting your directions for touring venice
We enjoyed the walking tour because of the local information the guide gives you, which is equally important to the sights you see. Our guide was very knowledgable and ready to answer all our questions about any aspects of Venice that interested us. St Marks is beautiful and the only other way to really see it without queing is if you are staying in Venice and can be there at 9.00 when the doors open, its worth going back again if you can.
The launch ride was great and you see the canals from the gondoliers point of view without the huge price tag!! Its more comfortable than being squashed in the vaparetto too! Lots of time and opportunity for photos.
I really liked the boat tour. I would definitely recommend the boat day as it gives a different perspective of the city as compared to walking tour. The course of boat tour runs through the housing area, so you get to see what it is like staying in Venice.
Saw areas of Venice I thought I would never have scene. The tour was great. Recommend for everybody who wants to not only see the main tourist areas but also see and experience the everyday residential areas of this unique city.
Our guide was a local - passionate about the city and full of information. Great tour
Wonderful tour and tour guide! Venice is a dream to walk around in, a little piece of treasure around every corner and tour guides that tells all the great stories to put it all in perspective.
An absolutely great way to introduce the city to yourself. Full of historical information and very good way to get into St. Marks without the very long lines. I suggest you get up early and be at the Doges Palace when they open the next day after your tour. You will enjoy it!
