The group was a manageable size 22 and the tour guide very informative. The tour through Venice was good covering the main attractions around the square and others up smaller alleys. However, while the skip the line tour of St Mark's allowed us to avoid the long line of people waiting to go in, it just had us waiting in a different line for guided tours. It took a long time to get in and we then just followed the set line through St Mark's with everyone else and out again in about 5 minutes. The boat tour was great with the participants split into smaller groups 8-9 and ferried around the Grand and many minor canals in a water taxi, again with an excellent tour guide. Highly recommended.
Our guide Federica was great. We saw Venice in the pouring rain but we were able to experience the high tide in St. Mark's Square so felt like a local. St. Mark's basilica was beautiful. We opted out of the boat tour only because it was still raining in the afternoon and we didn't want to get wet again but I'm sure it would have been fun!
The Venice in One Day Tour was well worth the experience. The guides were very knowledgeable and passionate. The ability to Skip the line made the value of the tour. Venice being visited by so many and being able to move the day along to get everything in made our visit when our stay is limited.
The meeting place was easy to find and the process was very organized. To try and get it all in on your own including all the knowledge and information is almost impossible. We left Venice feeling as though we got it all in.
Highly recommend this tour.
This Viator 'Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour' was fantastic value, helped enormously by the quality of the guides who spoke very clearly and knowledgeably. I must also comment on the very good sound quality of the 'radios' for the walking tour. We had Rosanna as our group guide for the walking tour who was full of information on Venice, it's canals and buildings. To enter St Marks we had to step on raised duck boards due to there being slight flooding caused by a high tide, quite a common experience apparently. The walking tour finished at the Rialto Bridge allowing us to make our own way back.
For the evening boat tour there had been a slight mistake, where some of us had been given the wrong meeting time. This however was to our advantage, as an extra 'water taxi' was used and instead of about 10-12 in a boat we only had 6 plus the 'driver' and Christina the guide. The boat tour, under a clear blue sky and warm evening breeze, was probably the highlight of our stay and Christina did a marvelous job explaining the history of the town, its buildings and surrounding waterways. To stand up in the boat as it cruised up through the Grand Canal will be a memory to savour.
Great tour, the company know the best time to take you to St. Marks Basilica as the church is only lit from 11:30-12:30 otherwise its very hard to see inside the church. Tour guide was great gave some lunch tips and gelato tips on the tour. The boat tour was very cool, sit in the back so you can peak your head out and take pictures as you float down the canals.
Thoroughly enjoyed our tours and our guides Marina and Christina were very personable and professional. Informative and entertaining.... 10 out of 10!!
Our tour guide was amazing. She gave great information and was very pleasant. It was a great overview of the city.
Tour was very informative, both St. Marks and the boat. St.Marks was crazy busy with tourists, boat cruises. Next time we will check the cruise schedule and plan a day without so many people. The boat tour was 2 hours after the tour ended, but that gave us a chance to rest and eat. Both tour guides were very knowledge and answered questions. I would highly recommend this adventure.
Great tour guide and fun boat ride would recommend it to others
Absolutely wonderful and informative.
Our guide was born and raised in Venice so she was very helpful with local cuisine.
