This was a terrific walking tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. A great way to get introduce to Venice. Would highly recommend.
We were extremely happy with this tour. Our guide Freddy was excellent and knew everything about Venice. She took us to the back streets which we would never have seen some of the sights on our own. I would highly recommend this tour.
We had a super guide called Frederica, full of humour and good information. St Marks was rather splendid, though no photos were allowed inside. The walking tour thereafter was really great - no long details of dates or histories, just enough to give us the picture. We all enjoyed this tour with her.
Wonderful tour. Our guide was very personable and a pleasure to listen to. She really understood how to navigate the crowds in Venice! As a native she had lots of details to share. So glad we took this trip.
Easy to book, easy to find the guide, fantastic guide great sense of humour. We had 2 hours of great fun and lots of information. I only wish we had more time to do some other tours.

Laura was a great guide who gave us an informationpacked tour with a lot of interesting details about Venice. A highly recommended tour.
A tour like this is a must have if you'd like to see St. Mark's Basilica as you can get right in without having to wait for the line. That ticket alone was worth the price. Then Andre was also an excellent guide. He was funny with a lot of history. He knew when to get through a section and when to take a break to let the tour rest a moment and take in the sights.
Fantastic guide, with a huge knowledge of Venice, she was a Venetian and showed us all how proud she was of her city. Unfortunately, on a person note, I had forgotten how many bridges with steps there are in Venice and I have a problem with my knees, so this proved very difficult for me. The visit to St Mark's alone was worth the ticket price, so if anyone else is in the same position as me, they might want to skip the rest of the tour, which would have been the sensible thing for me to do.
You have to go in the museum in St. Mark's. The mosaics are absolutely awesome and show incredible Biblical scenes throughout. I personally thought the mosaics there on the ceiling were more impressive than St Peter's in the Vatican. Also, make sure to see the original horses from Constantinople's hippodrome. They're inside the museum as well. It's an awesome piece of history from an amazing empire that once flourished for a millennium - the Byzantines.

Excellent tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and had a good sense of humour. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great tour! Even with my bad knees, the length was of the tour was just right at the end though my knees had enough, so give it a try. Will you ever be back in Venice? You just have to see as much as possible in Venice, so this is a great summary tour. And then have a nice lunch planned to let you know you can rest after the tour.
Great guide. Well worth it. Loved seeing the out of way areas outside of the piazza.
Very knowledgeable guide. We went places and learned more about Venice than we could possibly have done alone. Loved Venice!
This was an excellent tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. We really thought it was the highlight of our trip!!
Our guide was wonderful. We took the tour on an exceptionally hot day. She was careful to keep us in the shade as much as possible. We were very glad we took the tour.
Excellent walking tour and our guide Merco was great. He was very informative and answered all our questions. He had interesting anecdotes doubt Venice and particularly St. Mark's. I learned a lot about the Basilica itself and it's history. We were not bored for one minute. Highly recommend this tour but be prepared, it says a lot of walking and it is, and so worth it!
Very informative tour about the city and the church. I enjoyed it and would recommend.
Our tour guide gave us a very good review of St Mark's from outside. We went in for a short time which was fine because it was so crowded. The best part of the tour was the walk around the neighborhoods surrounding St Mark's Square where we learned a great deal about what it is like to live in Venice.
