Wonderful way to get a detailed view of this unique city! Reasonably priced. Excellent tour guides!!!! Thanks.
What a lovely way to see some highlights of this lovely gem!! Our guide was very informative and helped us navigate the crowds and attraction lines. The boat ride offered a chance to view sights from a different vantage while our guide shared various tidbits of information about life in Venice. Highly recommend this tour.
Was totally worth it! Venice is a must see!
Very informative and enjoyable tour. The guide for Grand canal ride was more awesome. We had bags that we had to carry on boat(had to take Ferry to venice train station right after the grand canal ride), both the tour guide and boat driver accommodated our request.
This tour was worth it's price and was the best tour we took in Venice. We had a fascinating 2 hour walking tour of the piazzas, narrow passageways, canals,St Marks Square and the Rialto Bridge, then boarded a private boat for a 1 hour Grand canal tour. Our guide was very informative regarding the history of Venice, the trade with different countries that influenced it's prosperity and political changes and of course the influence of the rising water table. The guide explained that Venice is a network of canals, which largely take the place of what would be roads in other cities. Gondolas and water taxis transport people to and from destinations. Touring the Grand canal, we saw a library that you enter from the canal with boots on as the water inside the library floor is about 2 inches high, we saw Venetians leaving their homes in small boats there are no motorized vehicles or bicycles allowed in Venice. It is a pedestrian only city, our guide explained that ALL commerce is transacted by boat. This is a beautiful city and our guide was able to let us see beyond the highlight of St. Marks Square. I would highly recommend this tour to a friend.
We loved Venice. A little cold, a little wet but nothing short of fantastic.
great tour - was warm that day but such fun to see Venice finally
Fantastic!! Do the tour while in Venice, this is a must!!
The guides for both the walking tour and boat trip were great. The walking tour guide also gave us handy info on where to go to get the best views and it was free we would never have known about it otherwise. The guide on the boat trip was very entertaining. Took this tour on my birthday and wasn't disappointed, thanks for the great memories!
A must do while in Venice.

This was a great tour well organised, informative and fun!
Walking and boat ride tour guides were excellent and knowledgeable about interesting historical facts.
The tour was good, it would have been better to have been able to skip the queue but apparently in winter you cant do that.
The only real thing that was bad was not anyones fault but it was absolutely freezing!!
The secret tour of the Doges Palace was remarkable and revealing, all at the same time. We were able to appreciate a very different side of this very well known architectural landmark, right in the centre of Venice, than we had ever managed in several previous trips over the last few decades. The tour took us to the small private offices of the Doges' chief advisers, the meeting rooms of the highest officials and the attic level prison cells where only the worst offenders, including Giacomo Casanova, were imprisoned, before we crossed the Bridge of Sighs, looking out at the tourists floating past below on their gondola rides. Excellent value.

Nice walking tour , pace is good and the evening time is just right - less crowds - would have liked to have had gondola ride with just ourselves - sharing a gondola under a full moon - took away some of the ambience. It's not like there isn't a million gondolas in Venice . Would book again - but would also request own gondola if possible . I'm sure the newlyweds with us would have preferred it also :
Doing what: Venice Tour Including Gondola Ride
Definitely the only way to see this very busy area. Tour was well presented and we ease through the crowds!
We went on our tour one morning in mid-October when it was high water and St. Mark's Square was flooded. The guide was very good and told us lots via our head-sets, but unfortunately we couldn't concentrate on what she was saying, or see her, far less where she was pointing, due to being among the huge crowds all having to inch their way along the duck-boards above the water. The water receded after lunch and we explored the area ourselves then. The boat tour in the afternoon was very informative and worth doing. Because of having to pre-book our tour well in advance to fit in with our brief stay in Venice, we had no option but to go on it, but we would have got much more from the experience if we'd been able to choose a low water day. I think I did have some lovely photographs of the reflections in the water in St. Mark's Square as it was very picturesque, but my camera was stolen so we'll never know.
