We needed a shorter tour to fit into our tight schedule. This tour was outstanding! Our tour guide, Nicolleta,
showed us many places that were less crowded and still very interesting. She recommended a locals'restaurant, and she explained how all the islands functioned together as a city. She showed us the city sites, as well, including the inside of St. Marks. It was very hot, and she showed us how the locals feel cooler. The boat ride on the Grand Canal was wonderful and relaxing. Seeing sites from a boat is easier than braving the crowds.
The guide was excellent , interesting , engaging and informative . The tour gave a great insight about Venice historically and culturally .
A very informative tour of Venice! We had a behind the scenes look at Doge's Palace and St. Mark's. The tour guide provided excellent information and interesting anecdotes.
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. We included the upgrade for the secret itinerary tour of the Doge's Palace. Elena, our tour guide for the Doge's Palace was amazing. She was not only informative and knowledgeable, she was animated and made the history come to life. In addition to the tour, we enjoyed the free time to explore the remaining parts of the Doge's Palace. For the afternoon component, our tour guide Paola was also excellent. Having only 8 of us in the group allowed Paola to tailor the tour to our wants. Overall, we really enjoyed this tour!
Moise, our tour guide, was spectacular! He made Venice even more magical for us!!! The combination of the water taxi ride and the walking tour is an excellent way to understand the history and present day life of this fantastic city.
The tour was thorough and interesting. Our guide was excellent was knowledgeable.
Great tour, excellent organization, the guide was very kind and well informed.
Wonderful way to see Venice for first time. Tour guide was superb. He sorry I could not remember his name showed us the popular sites as well as neighborhoods of the locals.
Benefits of a small group tour meant that the whole experience felt a lot more personal and there were lots more opportunities to ask the tour guide questions. The guide was knowledgeable and I really enjoyed what I learnt about Venice. Water taxi ride is a great way to tour Venice!
Our tour guide was wonderful, it ended up only being 4 people in our group. She was a native and told us all the wonderful information about this fantastic city.
I would highly recommend this tour. The guide we had, the places we saw, the boat trip through the canals and the time set aside to do it was excellent. We didn't do the Doge's palace part of the trip so I'm not sure if we missed anything there but all in all we had a great afternoon out. The only issue we had was actually finding the guide near the bridge. As it's very busy maybe the guide should somehow be more prominent
The best guide I have ever met. Fantastic tour made so much better with our guide. Informative, incredibly knowledgeable, and a very friendly genuine personality. Excellent value for money. I hope that Aviator can pass this review on to our guide. Book this and enjoy.
You have great guides, and the information given was just superb for a first time visitor. Had a little trouble locating the guide in the morning - maybe a sign? And where was Marco Polo really born?
This was a great way to see Venice. Our tour guide was great, personality plus and having lived in Venice all her life knew lots of things to tell us and keep us entertained and informed. It was a very long day but one I will remember forever. I would highly recommend this tour, especially for people who have not been to Venice before!
A great memorable evening tour, we were initially concerned as the dinner venue was changed due to a wedding reception at the Forum Hotel, the alternative hotel was impressive with a closer view of the Colosseum. Lovely 3 course meal a stater of ham, cheeses and a citrus sauce, veal fillet with a sauce , with stated vega and a chocolate presentation plate to suit any chocoholic . Good matching wines and service.
The cost of the tour is Inline with the quality of the restaurant and the experience of the tour, the dinner starts at 7.15 pm and we left the Colosseum at 11pm
A short walk to the Colosseum and our guide for the tour. A very informative tour with great atmosphere in the underground cells and in the terraces. Having been during the day previously we can higher recommend the night tour as much better.
City tour was great. Missed doges palace tour because directions were lousy where meeting place was. I actually noticed a few folks waiting ing the area the directions said to wait and I had to go get the group and bring them to the right area in just the nick of time. Otherwise would have missed
This tour was great. We upgraded to Doges Palace and that is a must. We got to see places where most tourist don't go. I can't remember the guides name we had for the water taxi and walking tour but she was excellent. You could tell she really loved Venice. A must do if you have never been to Venice before.
Well worth the money and time taken to do this guided tour. The tour guide was just fantastic and the information brilliant. Skip the line at Marks Basilica, well worth it.
Another wonderful day with a personable and knowledgeable guide! I will always remember that the map of venice is in the shape of a fish!
Excellent guide. Small tour group. Well organised into groups at start of tour. Not rushed.
