Leave your cruise ship at the port and see the sights of Venice with a private guide. The 3-hour shore excursion is tailored to you, so you decide what you want to see and when. Go off the well-trodden tourist track to visit the neighborhood of Cannaregio, or scout out the wares of Rialto fish market. Check out tucked-away churches, and then finish with a glass of wine and nibbles in a local bar. It’s a great way to see a side of Venice that many visitors miss.

Our tour guide Gualy (pronounced July) was fantastic. Definitely worth it. She was knowledgeable, accommodating and flexible as we had to make a change due to the huge line ups at Blue Mosque. It worked out perfectly to maximize our time for the tour. The tour organizers were there to greet us off the cruise without us looking for them. Process was very smooth.
