I know the guide thought he was speaking English, but you could have fooled me. His accent was so thick you would need a chain saw to cut through it. Also, the microphone system only worked half of the time and the other half the crackling was so loud you could not hear anything. My recommendation is to get in line early and do the audio guide. At least you will be able to understand that guide

A phenomenal place to visit and skip the line is a must as it was packed, not just for the queue outside but to navigate the crowds inside.

We have had other tours with this company that were great, but this one was not good. The tour guide was not enthusiastic or engaged and his accent was way too thick to understand. I caught maybe 20 of what he said.

Actually, I'd give no stars if possible as we were never able to find the guide so we got no special tour. We got there 30 minutes early to be able to find the guide. Our tour was supposed to be at noon on 11/7/17. It was raining and there was significant flooding so the risers were in use making the logistics even more tricky than usual while trying to get to the appointed meeting place Clock Tower, not Bell Tower. The only good news was there was no line to get into St. Mark's, partially because of the weather/flooding I'm sure. We also asked the Guards at the doors a few minutes later and they hadn't seen the tour guide either--and as we wandered around inside we never saw a group that looked like they belonged to this tour. Of the 8 Viator tours we took in Oct/November of 2017 this was the only one that was a disappointment.

The tour was to start at 12.00, we stood around for at least 15 minutes waiting for something to happen, the tour leader then went off with backpacks so another 5 minutes gone. We then stood near the entrance and tour leader says hopefully we can skip the line - we shall just have to wait and see. Apparently and according to the tour leader the only way we got in had something to do with another backpack. This tour is SKIP THE LINE: St Mark's Basilica Guided Tour supposed to be for 1 hour. We were ushered out at exactly 1pm, very poor will not recommend this tour EVER. NO PHOTOS ALLOWED INSIDE ST MARK'S. I have tried to book other tours on line through Viator and have really been messed around, won't bother with this company again.

We enjoyed the inside look at St. Mark's. Our guide was very informative. There was a line-up to enter the Basilica but we did not have wait which was a real bonus. Great tour, wonderful guide.

The guide spent a lot of time politicking . We went back ourselves with a Rick Steves free audio tour and got a lot more out of the tour.
