The ghost tour was unique and filled with many stories. The guide was fun and went along at a nice pace. Venice has alot of history and I'm sure we just touched the surface.
There was a very good mixture of true horror, myths and legends. Our guide, Francesco, took us around a variety of nooks and crannies through night time Venice and gave us a wonderful perspective of the city. The tour gave us a great historical insight and added an extra dimension to our short stay. Francesco had plenty of grisly stories to tell, but delivered them with a dash of humour. (and i phone photographs!)
The guide made the tour. Although only an hour and a half the guide was helpful and full of really interesting information. Although we took this tour after an earlier tour and several hours on our own in Venice She kept our interest for the full time.
The Venice Ghost Walking Tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. It was a cold, windy, rainy night which sort of added to the ghostly, creepy ambiance of the tour. The meeting place was easily found and the tour guide was punctual and very animated. She was full of stories and information; her English was excellent and her stories kept us all interested, especially our 11 and 14 year old sons. Some of the stories were grisly but very entertaining; lots of historical tidbits and lots of walking around. We would all highly recommend this tour and were all glad that we did it!!
Great guide! She told great ghost stories as well as incoporated some of the history of Venice into the tour which was awesome. Highly recommend it!
Awesome! Our guide was a wonderful story teller and spoke English very well.
Being a season traveller in Venice I saw parts of Venice I've never seen before. I would have liked the tour to be a little but more scary for fun. The tour guide was very nice and informative.
This was great and the tour was taken by Christina who was responsible for writing the tour with 3 of her co-workers which added to the enjoyment. Hidden Venice indeed and was great to go through all the back streets. The highlight for me was the winding staircase which was magnificent. Go!
Loved the history and was like a step back in time. If you love ghost stories and love to explore around then defiantly book this trip
Loved it! We got to see so much of Venice that we otherwise would not have. Our giude was so enthusiastic and passionate - it made it so much fun. Plus walking the little alley ways of Venice at night is really something special. A must see for anyone who enjoys the lesser traveled sights!
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour - is was a great way to learn more about the history of city and to see things we would not have found on our own. Tour guide was brilliant.
Great to wander around at night in back alleys and hear some amazing history of a beautiful city. Great guide
This was the most fun. Our guide was wonderful. So much about Venice and it secrets. This is a must see.
What a great way to learn about a city! Excellent guide and a very enjoyable evening.
This tour was really great. Our tour guide was very vivacious and knowledgeable of venice. She made this an entertaining night filled with history and stories of ghosts in Venice.
Excellent tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesing with her knowledge.
Would definitely recommend this.
Although i would change the name of the tour!
We had a fantastic tour guide who told us true stories, local fact and fables
He was very enthusiastic which made the tour so much more enjoyable!!
Great tour. My husband and daughter are still talking about this 3 weeks later! It was great to listen to the stories of Venice as told by a local.
This was an excellent tour! Our tour guide was very friendly and personable, and a true Venetian! We walked through the backstreets and alleys of the city while being told some very interesting stories of days gone by. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a taste of the real Venice, or for something a little different than the usual touristy things.
Really liked it! Different! As others have said not a "scary" tour...but it was fun and informative. Our tour guide painted some interesting stories for us as we wandered around the dark alleys of Venice that we would not have gone into alone.
This was an excellent tour! Our guide had written the tour and was excellent in its presentation. It was wonderful to learn about the history, architecture and traditions of Venice along with the great ghost stories. We wandered along narrow streets and ended in "spooky" courtyards for each story. I don't think we would ever have seen Marco Polo's home and the story of his wife nor the arrival at the casino along with hints of Cassanova. It was a great experience to pretend to be one of the escaping clients of the casino and make our way through the dingy tunnels and passageways to escape that courtyard. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience vatican by night in a different way!
We do ghost tours on most trips that we take. This was exceptional. Even in the pouring rain, it was interesting and entertaining. We went into little hidden places that we never would have found on our own. Loved our tour guide, who is a native of Venice!
