Very easy to link up with guide following the directions given. We had a lovely informatiive walk round St Mark's square and through the Basilica on the ground floor only but this was enough to appreciate this beautiful building. We were taken down many back streets stopping at various places of interest off the beaten track and ending at The Rialto Bridge. I would recommend this walk and 2 hours was just enough to those who have knee and hip issues.
We had multigenerational togetherness in Venice. We decided to take a skip the line tour to gain history on Venice. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Basilica and the surrounding neighborhoods. What we all appreciated was her passion for her city. She told people to stop taking pictures in the church and to become knowledgeable about places they visit.
Very disappointed. What tour visits Venice and doesn't go to the Rialto bridge, or even mention it. Also, the guide was more focused on discussing how tourism is ruining Venice and the current owners are turning all their homes into bed and breakfasts. She gave too much leeway to some of the guests and we waited :30 for a bathroom break when they returned eating food. Our visit into St Marks was short and the walk around all the plazas was the majority of the tour. There is so much more to Venice. Very sad.
Good tour to get into the basilica, however another group jumped in front of our group and left us standing in line so much for skip the line! This tour gives you the basic nuts and bolts of this famous church and it's historical relationship with the church of Rome. Just long enough, under two hours.
The guide was very knowledgeable, but it was a very awkward tour. We were not allowed to take pictures in the Basilica because of the reverence requested of the holy site. However, the tour guide talked the entire way through the basilica despite that the signs requested no guided tours. Had we known the guided would be offensive to the location, we would have booked individual tickets or waited in line to get our own tickets. We still had to wait to get in, despite the Skip the Line promise. We definitely didn't want to offend the local requests of reverence when visiting religious sites. The pace was too slow for us as well.
