so much fun, our guide was funny and knowledgeable. It was nice to have someone who knows the layout of the city, we found an amazing little place off the main path to have lunch. I highly recommend getting out of the main crowd and explore.

Great tour of Venice, even if it was just for a few hours. The tour guide was knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and friendly.


4 star rating: Recommended December 2016

We love the local tour guide, though was tiring but we managed to cover most parts of Venice, including gondola ride and walk around the historic landmarks.
Suggestion for change - 1. time wasted in journey to Venice via bus and local train, ideally package one guided tour with high speed rail. The other high speed tour was unguided that was why we opted this. 2. Glass blowing demonstration was good but time wasted in their sales call as we wanted to have more time for lunch. Should release those not interested in buying early for longer lunch

We are so happy we went on this tour! You have to see Venice, right? It was very hot, and it was very expensive to eat close to the San Marco Piazza. Our guide, Allessando, warned us of this. He was very knowledgeable and informative...


4 star rating: Recommended May 2016

Great informative tour. Enjoyed our time learning so much about Venice. Our guide was great and our driver Francesco was great! was very accommodating to our time schedule and gave great information on our drive.


3 star rating: Worth doing July 2016

Well, I wouldn't do this tour again. Too long of a day and not enough time to see and explore Venice. We took the bus from Florence a few hours then the metro then the train then the water taxi which was fun however no info along the way. The tour in Venice was good however my headphones had no power only 10 minutes in and she didn't have another so I had to walk very close to the guide to hear anything. The glass blowing was very cool! We did have time for a gondola ride which was of course a highlight. We didn't have time to go into the church. The line was too long and we had to get back to our meeting place to start the journey home. We also didn't have much time to walk around and explore. Next time we will take the high speed train there and then either book a tour there so we'd have more time to see everything or just do our own thing and explore.

The tour itself was amazing! However,we were with a group of sudents who were not interested in being there they did not listen to the guide and chatted while the guide was explaining various aspects of the city, so that the other tour members were not able to hear. I realize that we were put together with this student group, however, we should have had another guide. Speaking of the guid he smoked incessantly. As a nonsomoker, I found this a bit irritatingHe also said if we were not punctual at meeeting points that he would leave without us. Really! I paid a godd amount of money for this tour and was left with a bitter taste in my mouth regarding Viator.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better October 2016

The tour was fine for what it was, but I wouldn't recommend seeing Venice this way. It took forever to get there take a high speed train instead and then we didn't have much time to look around before we had to meet up with the group to go back. Most of the time was spent driving. Also, we couldn't go too far from the main square because we might get lost and miss the ride back.
