A great way to get an overview of Venice from both land and sea. The walking tour pointed out many highlights and gave us a great perspective on Venice life. Super interesting from a Venice native. The boat tour came later in the day and also allowed us to see things we could not get to on the walking tour. A wonderful way to see the city, highly recommended.
Meet at the Gardens and check in with the Guides. Several groups were leaving since it is the busy time of year. The guide was very informative and made sure everyone stayed together. The walk is not difficult but wear good walking shoes. We walked several times before going on vacation to prepare our bodies for the trip. Wear pants and cover your shoulders to enter St. Marks Church. My wife forgot to wear a shirt that covered her shoulders but she had a scarf to cover up. They are very strict on this rule. The guide told us that the church is only lit up inside only in the afternoon for an hour. Our guide at 11:10am was able to see the ceilings lit up while the early morning group did not. The walking tour ends up near the Rialto Bridge. This gives you time to eat and shop before going to the Gardens to meet the Boat tour. The boat leaves right outside the Gardens and ends in the same place. It is a small boat that fits about 10 people. You can get great pictures from the boat and you get some good information and history from the guide. During nice weather like we had, everyone gets to be outside to get good pictures. Great way to see the sightseeing areas.
Really enjoyed this tour-especially the boat tour- it's a must do in Venice.
Venice is fantastic. Our tour guide showed us quite a lot in a short time but managed a pace that my 7 year old could keep up with. Highly recommended.
Great tour and the guide was awesome special insight as he was a local salzburg
We enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide, Ariana was well spoken and very knowledgeable. Skipping the lines was a privilege. I can recommend this to everyone.
This tour was wonderful! I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Venice.
Excellent 2 part tour! Seeing the city via walking then by boat was awesome to get the different perspectives, stories, and history from two tour guides in one day. Great tour!
Great tour well worth the money. Informative guides and we skipped the huge line for the cathedral. The tour on the canals was a great way to end the day. Will definitely use again.
Both the walking tour and the boat tour gave us a great overview of Venice and its history. Our guide for the walking tour - Adrianna - was excellent! It was a great way to get to know Venice in one day!
Our tour with matt was amazing today. He was extremely knowledeable and so organized. Cant be easy to keep a group together in such a crowded city but he did so without missing a beat in his narrative. Loved all our guides this trip but enjoyed our tour with matt the best.
Guide was very well informed and kept us intrigued throughout the tour. You
We loved this tour and the tour guide was wonderful! She had a fun personality and told quirky little facts about Venice. She was thoughtful and aware of everyone in the group and it was a great experience for us! Thank you!
Excellent and informative tour, well worth doing. There are so many narrow streets that it feels easy to get lost but it's not to bad.
The tour has just sparked even more interest, our next visit to Venice will be longer and more in depth. Both the walking tour and the boat tour were extremely interesting and the guides definitely added to our enjoyment of the afternoon. If your time in Venice is limited or you want a quick overview to begin your visit to this beautiful city, I can enthusiastically recommend this tour.
Tour guides brought history to life and were very engaging. Both the walking tour and boat ride were just the right amount of time. Learned quite a bit and was entertained to boot. Couldn and #39;t have asked for more.
Wish we had had more time in Venice. Tour was very well organized and our guide was a wealth of knowledge. Looking forward to returning!
Great tour. Our guide Marina was the best and gave us so much and #39;insider and #39; info on the most beautiful city in the world! Our guide for the canal ride was also great-Christina- I believe. Will definitely recommend your tour very reasonable and informative. Keep up the good work
