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.
The guide was very good and spoke english very well :) Loved the trip and recommend it to everyone that are visiting Venice for the first time.

Our guide, Andrew, was very good. He was informative, funny, and easy to understand. We particularly liked the fact that the tour took us to places in Venice that were off the beaten patch.
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.
This was one of the best tours we have taken. Our guide was amazing. We started off on a Skip the Line tour of San Marco, which was definitely worth doing as the general queue was very long. The inside was amazing and I would have loved to have had more time inside. Our guide then took us to places in Venice we would have overlooked. Seeing all the hidden squares and learning about the architectural styles from a very knowledgeable guide was definitely enjoyable. His knowledge of Venice was incredible, and he made everything come to life. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Venice.
Very good tour with a chance to see the back streets. We had a very good guide who was really easy to listen too, on time and efficient.
This tour was awesome! We absolutely loved our guide, Marina. She was cute, knowledgeable and engaging. I'd recommend this tour to anybody visiting Venice.

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!
