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?

Thanks

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.
Highly recommended

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.

Unforgetable. Venice, it must be one of the best places to visit in the world. Once again we were lucky to have such an experienced tour guide leader. Mr Mose Viero. Mose took us not only to the best places, corners etc of the Walking tour, but he also made us feel we were there at the exsisting time. Very detailed history of this great place, VENICE. Well Done Mose. Hopefully we will find you again on our return to Venice in the near future. Charles and Evelyn .Melbourne Australia.

Really enjoyed visiting St Mark’s Basilica, and also exploring the Grand Canal by boat. The guide was very knowledgeable, and it was great to be in a small-group.

This was a fabulous tour of Venice - our guide (Moses) was excellent - his outstanding knowledge significantly enhanced our tour experience. The Tour program covered off the significant highlights of this fascinating city and laid the platform for us to enjoy our own exploration of Venice.
I can thoroughly recommend this tour as a wonderful introduction to Venice! Regards - Rod Fox.
