Informative, animated, engaging tour guide who really shared her passion for Venice and it's history. You must ask when you book to stay in the Basilica at the end of the tour to go upstairs and visit the horses an extra 5. If you have more time you can always visit them at another time.
The title of this tour should be changed to St. Marks Cathedral tour as this is what the tour was about...and very good at it too. Unfortunately we did not tour or discuss the square which has a different history and story. I will use this tour company again as the tour and ease of signing up is easy but would call ahead when possible to confirm the content.
Very good tour. The tour guide was just excellent keeping in mind craziness of St Mark's square

Very informative guide who also gave interesting facts. Extremely friendly as were other representatives who we met. Easy to find them at the meeting point and consequently negotiate S.Marco at a busy time of the day as the tour began. I Noticed also how well frail and disabled we supported which was impressive. Excellent value for money,thank you.
I thought this tour was well done. It would be better to let people know that they can go upstairs for an extra fee before we leave the building.
I highly recommend this tour of saint marks the guide was great he explained everything both in the square and the cathedral
Wonderful tour...Iphigenia was a TERRIFIC Guide! Great way to start the Venice visit!
Great way to find out all the History of St Marks square and the Bascilla.
Tour guide was brilliant very knowledgeable wished I had booked the other tours.
A bonus was skipping the queues I would absolutely recommend.
The tour was terrific. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. We had a great time. And we skipped the long lines.
Very good value for an intro tour of St Marks Square and the Basilica. Tour guide very professional and spoke good English which could be clearly heard through the headsets provided. It was great skipping the long queues. Would totally recommend this tour
The best way to visit the Basilica. The guide was quite knowledgeable allowing people to ask questions as we walked across the square. Easy entrance into St. Mark's allowed us to spend our time inside this breathtaking basilica taking its special features with greater understanding. The hour flew by!

It was really good to skip the big queue and to get so much quality info.
A very informative tour and short. It was the end of our trip and we were toured out. St. Mark's is a beautiful church with much history. I am very happy with Viator and their tours. The guides are easy to understand and very knowledegable!
This was the first tour of 3 that we scheduled and it started our trip off perfectly! Although Venice ( and St. Mark's Square) was under water the day we arrived, the next day we started the one hour tour with just some drizzle. It certainly did not stop the tour guide ( I don't remember her name but she had red hair) was knowledgeable and made the area come to life for us. Going in to the Basilica was a special treat and the guide explained everything very well. She did such a great job that we opted to continue on with her and signed up for the Doges Palace tour that followed. There was still plenty of time left over to wander around on our own. I would definitely recommend this tour !!!
Definitely do this one! Walk right in! Absolutely beautiful! Guide was very good!
This is a brilliant tour, one of the best I've been on and the tour guide was fabulous; so interesting and informative. I will go further than recommending this tour and say you must go on it as part of your visit to Venice.
Very good. Made good connection with the tour guide that was very good too. Getting a tour lined up before you get to a place is the way to go, to skip the lines....go right in the door.

If you are visiting during late spring and summer, you have to skip the line... or you will do nothing but wait all day. Our guide was fabulous, and know everything there was to know!!
We got lost and missed the original time but they accomodated us the following day with no fuss. Very enjoyable tour.
This was a very nice tour, with only 15 people, and the guide spoke good English, had a lot of knowledge and a great sense of humor. His pace was just right to see everything and explain things in good detail, but not too much. Very enjoyable tour with good audio in the Basilica.
