It was a very comprehensive 4 hour tour. The knowledge of both the guides was impressive. If you only have a short time in Venice this tour will give you a great overview.
Gotta do the tours! We met another couple in Florence after our Venice trip, they had not done a tour, big mistake! They didn't even know that the statues rang the bell in San Marco. We got to see it happen for the first time at the top of the Basilica! Knew exactly what to do to see it happen again at the top of the Campanile. Super enthusiastic guide that made me feel like we were getting more than we paid for.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She managed to handle the large group with ease. I especially enjoyed her first hand knowledge from living in Venice.
Our guide was very knowledgable... Much better than navigating on our own. We learned about the sites as well as Venice!
This was the best tour of our 4 days in Venice. Our tour guide was amazing, and we learned so much about Venice and all of its history. The walking tour was at a good pace, not too fast, and was extremely enjoyable! Well done!!
Excellent tour, guide was very knowledgeable and a great introduction to the city.
Having a tour was the best thing to do. I really recommend it because it is the best way to learn about the city and also to skip the line to see the majestic Saint Mark Basilica with somebody explaing to you each detail os the church
Elena was the BEST guide! Very knowledgeable, passionate and fun! She was organized and took us all around Venice. We had a wonderful experience exploring Venice and visiting St Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace with her. This was hands down the best tour we went on during our 2.5 weeks in Europe!
Elizabeth was a pleasure! Real and authentic! As a venetian her knowledge was second to none. She was charismatic and funny giving lots of interesting facts and finds of Venice. We found this tour insightful, the right length and very fun! Skipping the ques for Doges and St Mark's was a bonus and when inside we got some great information and time to look around! Well worth the money!
This tour was awesome! Tour guide grew up in Venice so it was perfect. The amount of time was nice, not too long, and the walking wasn't bad. Would do this tour again with 'Skip the Line' access, very nice!
Definitely recommend this tour. Our guide Franca was great, very knowledgable and passionate. Being able to skip the line is helpful as well. The tour uses headphones so you can hear the guide at all times. 3 hours is just the right amount of time. A must if in Venice for a short time.
Great tour, you do not want to miss the palace or Basilica. The guides do a very good job of giving you the history and hidden gems when conducting the tour. Definitely a must do.
Absolutely wonderful adventure. Only 6 of us in the group. Moses, our guide totally enjoyed his job and sharing the history here. We've told all in our group about this tour. It's great to take it early in your visit,. It gives you a great overview so you can go back out on your own with more confidence .
This tour included two of Venice's most notable and famous structures, the Basilica and Doge's Palace on the Piazza San Marco but started near the Rialto Bridge. Unfortunately for us, that was undergoing some renovation, we were told, and we didn't go by it. But we did go to a landing nearby on the Grand Canal and saw a lot that was so interesting if not well known in between there and the featured sites. The guide, Susan, said she had lived in Venice for something like 20 years and if there is something about it that she doesn't know, I'd be surprised. Appropriating the cliché, she bubbled over with enthusiasm, sharing so much on what makes Venice the special place that it is, making the tour especially enjoyable as well as informative.
Very knowledgeable tour guide. Friendly and patient. Basilica tour allowed us to skip the long lineups so that in itself was worth the tour!
Venice has always been 1 on my bucket list and this tour did not disappoint. Our guide, Mirco was fabulous. The fact that he is a native Venetian only made it that much better. His knowledge and the beauty of this city makes the tour a MUST DO.
Excellent, informative, and seeing the Basilica was a highlight!
