My daughter and I took this tour and found it incredibly worthwhile. There were just a total of 5 of us on this tour. Barbara was our tour guide unfortunately I don't remember her last name She was fun, lively and very knowledgeable and informative. We started out by exploring the Rialto market area but then also explored areas that were off the beaten path from the typical touristy spots. Barbara had funny and informative stories to tell along the way. Our tour ended at the Friar Church, definitely one of the highlights of the tour!! We were so glad we had a tour guide with us while we explored the Friar Church. In total I would highly recommend this tour.
Arianna is the perfect tour guide. Full of personality and fun and useful information. She pointed out lots of neat shops and restaurants. One of those we ate at and the food and service were spectacular!
Great insights into the history of the architecture of Venice, the formation of the city and other interesting facts. Our guide was lovely and the tour was worthwhile.
This tour was an absolute joy, our guide was very friendly and informative. The 2 hours flew by and finished at a perfect time for us to find lunch. Would highly recommend this tour. Thank you.
Our guide Suzanna was very good, we learnt so much about the history of Venice, thank you very much for a wonderful tour. Highly recommended!
Wonderful! Wonderful! Our guide was wonderful,moo! Sadly, I do not remember her name because I want to give her a shout out. You guys behind the scenes, check out who she was and please give her a shout out for us. We loved the market and our guide was most generous with her impressions and recommendations. Very much fun! Venice is so wonderful!

Excellent tour. Guide very entertaining and informative. I have been to Venice several times and found it really interesting seeing areas that were off the beaten track. Lina Glasgow.
Great guide very interesting prompt on time very knowledgeable will definitely recommend and use again
Our guide took us to some really out-of-the-way places where there were NO crowds. Very interesting time. Learned a lot of unusual facts.
This tour is very informative and you see another side to Venice. I thinks its a must if you want to see another side to Venice and understand some of its history.
This was a small group, 8 people so no need for headsets. Tour guide was wonderful, took us away from crowds, back alleys to areas we would not normally go or see. If you don't like history, don't go. Wife and I both loved it.
We were very happy with this tour and we were especially delighted with our guide, she was very knowledgable and passed on some very interesting facts regarding Venice to us.
Fascinating tour. The guide was excellent and very helpful. Finishing at Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari with all it's art treasures was great way to end the tour. Thoroughly recommended.
A little overlap from previous day- not area or what we viewed but history. It really was execllent- would have preferred a little smaller group.
Definitely a great tour, walked tons so be sure to wear comfortable shoes, great knowledge from guide, very prepared and yet interesting
Excellent guide and learnt lots of interesting facts about the lesser known parts of Venice.
This was a great tour, very interesting and the guide was extremely knowledgeable. She described events and circumstances that were truly intriguing. This was probably the best tour I have ever taken. Thanks.
Enjoyed the tour. Perfect English and a lot of information about the real life in Venice.
Marina was really nice and helpful.
Fantastic. The tour guide (Francesco) was a local and was so knowledgeable, as well as terrifically approachable, pleasant, friendly and clearly PASSIONATE about his home city. He dealt with a huge variety of different abilities well on the walking tour itself and was interesting and engaged with everyone, including the numerous interruptions we all made by asking impromptu questions. I'd highly recommend this tour. It was money well spent. The only thing I'd add is some guidelines from Francesco about how to find nice places to eat in Venice (I wish I'd asked) because we just got royally ripped off and ate awful food everyone we went!
Nice sized group, good headsets, interesting subject matter, lovely and humourous guide - perfect. And the evening timeslot is a great time to do a walking tour out of the summer heat!!! Me and my party loved it.
If you want to see local Venice, away from the touristy mobs, then this is the tour to take. My boyfriend and I had been to Venice several times before this tour, and we still learned a lot of interesting information that most other tours miss. The tour guide was a local Venetian who even showed us where she lived so that we could understand local life in Venice.
Was awesome, saw Venice in another way, with interesting facts. A must do tour to understand Venice and see other areas not seen by the masses. Thank you!!!
Our guide was amusing and knowledgeable. We highly recommend this tour as an alternative to the usual tourist spots, as we experienced the rich history and culture of a living Venice.
