5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

We had a brilliant tour guide who was born and raised in Venice and very proud of her city. This was the best part of our tour in Venice, would do it again, the boat ride through the canals whilst having the palaces explained to us was wonderful.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

We love history which is why we took this tour and it really lived up to our expectations. Our guide, Marina, was incredibly knowledgeable and really went the extra mile with our tour. Afterwards she even walked us to a few good restaurants which she likes using herself but without any hard sell at all. We had a fabulous day.

This tour was excellent. I was very lucky as the rest of the group did not turn up and so I had a tour to myself! The guide was very knowledgeable and gave me an excellent tour of a hidden part of Venice. We walked for 1 hour and landed up at the Arsenal. It was great to see a part of the city that was quiet and where the Venetians lived and worked. The second hour was a boat trip on a water taxi. We kept to the back canals for much of the visit, although we also went down part of the Grand Canal. I thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone, but particularly if you want to get off the beaten track.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

We throughly enjoyed this tour through some of the back streets of Venice. It was definitely different then the typical radio headset tour. This was more personnel. Really enjoyed the inside information from a local. The water taxi ride was something special as well. Recommend this for something different.

It was a great short tour of some less visited areas of Venice. The ride on the canals gave a real sense of just how oriented the city must be to the water. Perfect weather only enhanced what was already a very good experience

Katarina did a fantastic job taking us all around the 'secret corners' of Venice. Very small intimate group...awesome!


3 star rating: Worth doing October 2016

Good tour, would have been better had we not already been in Venice a couple of days prior as guide struggled to come up with places we hadnt already seen.

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

Sylvia was nice but I felt it was just a walk through some of the back streets with not a lot of learning about the secret corners. The boat ride through the grand canal was nice but you can get that with a water taxi. I wouldn't recommend this tour I only gave it 2 stars because the guide did answer questions, just not a lot of information offered.
