We've been on several tours in Rome which we didn't like before we arrived in Venice and almost didn't go on the pre-booked tours once there. However, we were very glad we did. On the first day, Andrea lead our Venice Walking Tour. And, it's the tour guide that makes the tour either a disappointment or a not-to-miss event. Andrea was great! He was concise, patient, organized, and everything was more interesting when he described it. Best tour ever!

We skipped the line on a day where it was rainy and there was light flooding on St Mark's Square. It was very crowded inside the Basilica. Towards the end f the tour, we separated from the group and went around the Basilica on our own to observe the details of the mosaic in the ceiling and to explore other areas of the church not covered during the tour. I suggest that if one is interested in architecture and exploring the entire church that you do this. The Basilica has a museum and it is also nice to go out on the rooftop to observe the city and take photos.

Great way to see St Mark's Basilica and learn something at the same time.

A 2 hour tour packed with highlights. We had a very good guide, Serafina, who really knew her stuff and took us off the beaten track. Highly recommend it.

St Marks is not on the same scale as the Rome cathedrals and was ridiculously crowded.

We have found that learning about a city and its attractions through the eyes of a professional guide is worth every penny. Our guide, Christina, reinforced that yet again! The skip the line access to St. Marks is very important, and Christinas commentary taught us much more than we could ever have discerned for ourselves on the limited amount of time youre allowed inside. The tour included history of Venice fascinating, the Bridge of Sighs, the innovations to sustain the population from providing fresh water to why there are no trees in central Venice, a visit to the site of Marco Polos long-gone home, and several streets and alleyways off the tourist paths. Delightful!

I'm glad we have Skip the Line pass or else we will be standing in heat and a Long terrible line.

This trip is outstanding. Worth every penny. You can't comprehend how spectacular this building is until you see it from the hidden inside. Don't miss this in Venice.

Absolutely wonderful experience. Lisa was fantastic at guiding us through the city and offering up so many tips, tricks, fascinating facts and stories. This was the best way to start our trip. In fact, we did a little write up on it and will be doing another again soon. So glad we found this tour, it made our experience all the better!

LOVED this tour!! We did two in Venice and this was our favorite. The guide was lovely. She was witty and kind and as a local knew so much about everything. A man in our group became incredibly rude, like blatantly picking a fight with her and she handled herself with absolute class. He was upset that the tour was taking the amount of time it did because he only wanted to go through the basilica. The tour clearly states the time it will take and she was not at all at fault for taking that time, and in fact we did end up ending a little early, he was just awful. We loved how she handled the situation and never skipped a beat. Her little gems about the area made the rest of our time in Venice so much better as we knew where to go for the best views, little places to grab a bite to eat etc. Loved her information on life in the past and present in Venice. It was wonderful!

A good way to get to understand a little more about Venice and to see inside the basilica. Our guide, Marco, was fantastic and very funny. Definitely recommend.

This was a very interesting tour that offered lots of information on St Marks, The Doge's Palace and the history of Venice. It was fun going a little off the beaten path as well and seeing some of the less touristy parts of Venice. Our guide was very friendly and enthusiastic about her city!

Great tour and guide! One day is definitely enough but this hits all the highlights. Know that the afternoon tour does not end at the Rialto Bridge - only the morning tour does. But we broke off slightly early and enjoyed Rialto area and happy hour specials before taking the train back out of the city.

This was an excellent tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour a fabulous experience. I came away knowing a lot.
This is the fourth tour we have taken with Viator and have been particularly impressed with the calibre of the guides. We recommend Viator to others needing trips and guides.

Excellent tour! Excellent guide! He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was very informative and we enjoyed the tour of st. Mark's Basilica. We also saw many other sights that we would not have seen without a guide. This tour was an excellent value.

This was a great walking tour. The guide was knowledgeable and took us around lots of off the beaten locations as well as hitting the major attractions.

We, very cleverly, did this tour in a different day before we took the focused guided tour into the Basilica. We got a very nice, comprehensive input of all the exquisites on the Piazza, and the immediate surroundings.

Great tour. Our guide for the tour was extremely knowledgeable about Venice, Italy and it's history. We saw some parts of Venice that we probably would not have known about and we enjoyed the whole experience. Would certainly recommend as great introduction to this city.

Very good guide who took the time to explain things and answer questions. More time in St Mark's would have been nice but not possible with the crowds.
