This was our first tour in Italy. Lots of knowledge and skipping the line! I suggest it!
First of all, thank you Viator for your representative's help with this tour. I greatly appreciated her patience and hard work to help me get back on this tour. We basically went to the wrong meeting point. The confirmation sheet contained 2 different instructions and I read the wrong one. On top of this.....Venice is a tangle of streets, bridges and canals. It is not the easiest city to walk through. Our senior travelers grew weary of the windy streets and narrow corridors and we had to find another route to get to the Basilica....we ended up taking the water bus which gets there via the water. Once I got there, I realized that our tour guide was not going to be there - she was going to be at a statue located 20 min. from that point. From her meeting point, she was going to walk through a bit of the City and finally arrive at the Basilica for the 2nd half. It was too late to reverse to find her and I called Viator to see if we could just stay at the Basilica and wait for her to arrive to finish the second half. After a long wait over the phone and several calls, Viator managed to find the guide and we were told to stand by the Skip the Line entrance to the Basilica and wait for her. Viator gave clear instructions about who / how / where and we connected. Without that rep's help - the 6 of us would have had to forfeit the full cost of this tour. As it turned out - we all got a chance to see the Basilica and have a pleasant gondola ride in the end. Thanks Viator for your help - job well done! Thank you.....this alone is a good reason to book with Viator.
This is a wonderful way to get to know the city. The guide was wonderful. I highly recommend.
Excellent walking tour of the most beautiful city of Venice. The length of the tour was perfect, and the gondola ride was a nice, restful, ending.
Fascinating that areas so near to St Mark's were so quiet and peaceful yet packed with interesting history. Brilliant
Could not be happier! The tour was extremely well organized. The tour left on time and was not delayed by the latecomers who eventually arrived and caught up to us, with the help of another staff member. We saw all the sights and our guide did her best to avoid the crowds. Communication was very good throughout. The Gondola ride was also very good and a relaxing end to a busy schedule. This tour was great value for money and we highly recommend it.
Great tour! Just what we wanted! Not too long, not too short! Our tour guide was great and so knowledgeable! We walked through many of the main sights in Venice and then finally into St Mark's Basilica! We were able to go to the top and see the panoramic views of all of St Mark's Square. Our tour ended with a wonderful Gondola ride! I would highly recommend this tour!
This tour was amazing! Our tour guide Monica was very friendly and gave us a wonderful tour. The highlight was seeing the three Maji emerge from the doorway at the clock tower. They were practising for the next day!
Very good and informative tour. Our guide Ciara was the best, very knowledgeable and pleasant. We got the walking tour Doge palace and did the Gondola ride on our own. Doge palace is a must see and will give you an understanding of the kind of good governance they had in those days. Highly recommended.
Amazing tour, highly recommended! Did the optional Doge's Palace and it was great to see everything. We only wish some parts of the tour went slower so we can enjoy the rooms a bit more.
nathalia was an amazing guide, she is a fountain of knowledge and witty banter. She got everyone invoved in the group in demonstrations and stories, very interactive guide, worth every penny. wear comfy shoes though it is a very long walk your looking at being on your feet for 4.5 hours straight. although it may say you get a break, the ques are usually long so you dont really get that long to sit down its about 10 mins once your in the doge. which is basically a quick toilet break. However the place and group was awsome! :
I cannot say enough good things about this tour. My guide, Angela, was fantastic. She lead us through St Mark and #39;s Basilica and showed us the unique intricacies of the mosaics. The highlight was the upgrade to the water taxi tour. An experience amd memory I will always treasure. Highly recommended!
This tour was fantastic....our guide was wonderful and so knowledgable about the history of St Marks Square/the Basilica and Venice in general..
She made the tour so enjoyable as her personality was so charming. The tour and then the Grand Canal boat ride was perfect...We got to see so much of Venice within a 3 hour time and it was just perfect!
Really enjoyed this tour of Venice. Was great to see some of the quieter parts of the city.
Excellent tour guide and got to skip the line meaning we did not have to wait in the long queues to get in. The history our guide gave us really makes the trip. One can only see so many cathedrals and palaces one needs the background information to make it different enough to stick out in your memory and really make it a visit you will remember.
Loved venice !!! was easy to find the tour where it started , knowledgeable tour guide , precise and just the right mount of time - time definitely well spent if you are in venice for only a couple of days
This tour was everything we hoped for. The guide was L locally raised and extremely knowledgeable. We ask for a recommendation for a restaurant and she went out of her way to walk us there after the tour. She was awesome.
The small group was good
The audio set was vital in the crowded areas
Very informative asto local life as well as the sites
1st class well worth the cost
Skipping the line was brill
Julia was an excellent tour guide. She was very informative and made sure we had the best tour of Venice. Our tour was scheduled for 3 1/2 hours and it ended up being 4 hours long. Even though it was a Sunday Julia did not rush the group.
very knowledgeable guide and small enough group to hear everything that was pointed out.

Very nice tour. Seeing all the hidden squares and learning about the architectural styles from a very knowledgeable guide was definitely enjoyable. Venice is picturesque and Doge and #39;s palace held our interest. St Mark and #39;s basilica is also well worth the visit.
