Private Tour: Venice Half-Day Walking Tour

Ponte dell'Accademia, Venice

An expert guide will create a customized itinerary just for you with this private 3-hour tour. Choose from five different departure times to suit your schedule, and provide information about your interests and ideas at the time of booking.
Meet your guide at the prearranged time in central Venice. Depending on your preferences, your itinerary may include a walking tour of historic churches, markets, hidden squares and opulent palaces. Whether you’re interested in architecture, Renaissance art or food and wine, your guide will design a tour that’s just for you and share fascinating information about the history and culture of Venice along the way. 
For example, some popular spots to tour around St Mark’s Square include the Santa Maria Formossa Church and the Rialto Fish Market, where Venetians head to purchase the freshest catch of the day. With all tours, stop in at a traditional wine bar for a drink and cicchetti — the Venetian version of bar snacks.
Please note: Your tour will include visits to the exterior of buildings only. St Mark’s Square, St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace cannot be visited on this tour. Churches may also be inaccessible on Sunday mornings when religious ceremonies are taking place.

My family and I enjoyed our tour of the Venice very much. Although we've visited Venice on two previous occasions, this was our first guided tour of the city --- and it was amazing. The architecture and the historical imagery was absolutely beautiful and breathtaking -- the Canals are truly a unique treasure. Our tour guide Francesca was wonderful -- she was very friendly and personable and she was very knowledgeable and informative. Our tour was amazing and we strongly recommend it for anyone who visits Venice.

Absoluyrly fabulous and well worth the cost. our guide declared at the beginning that she wanted us to have wonderful memories of our visit to Venice and in this she succeeded. Fluent English and knowledge of her city mad this tour fascinating. We visited parts of Venice that we probably wouldn't have found on our own. Even though it was my third visit to Venice in many years this was fresh, exciting, and satisfying. Guide suggested cachet to visit, and ways to get around. Splendid and would do again.

Our tour of Venice was informative, exciting and comprehensive. We walked the streets of Venice with our guide Barbara who was as interesting and personable as could be. My wife and I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the real Venice as seen through the eyes of a native resident.

Our guide was Barbara, she was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a special place we wanted to visit, she had never been there but she got us in. Well worth the money.
