The tour was terrific. In the morning we had a guided tour of the Doges Palace with a Wonderfull guide. A break for a couple of hours and then we meet a different guide that gave a great walking tour of a part of Venice we would have never seen on our own. The water taxi tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Venice, it included the complete length of the Grand Canal as well as some small Canals in a beautiful residential area.

Moses was our excellent tour guide. He provided a great amount of information of Venice in a way that was fun and humorous. The tour was the right length and ended with an hour long water taxi around the Grand Canal and some of the smaller canals. Moses was not with us for the water taxi.

Because It was raining hard during our boat trip, we didnt really see much ..BUT Mose, our facilitator, is an outstanding tour guide .He is very knowledgeable and shared a lot of insights. He has exhibit intelligence on questions thrown at him. and because of him, I plan to come back and bring my sisters and their family who resides in America.

This was an excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us some great inside information. We were fortunate that it ended up being a small group. I highly recommend this combination walking and water taxi format.

WE did this tour on a cold rainy day near the end of April. It turned out there were only three of us on the tour. Our guide was excellent! She was very knowledgeable, funny, interesting, and entertaining. We learned a lot about the city of Venice both history and present day challenges and successes. I think what was the best part of our tour, was the guide seemed to really love her job. What a treat. Regardless of the dreadful weather, we spent a fabulous few hours together.

This was a great tour. Small tours are excellent There were only six - we were given earphones so that we could hear our excellent guide even if we were away taking photos. It was a good combination tour - visit to St Marks and the Square, then walking around the neighbouring canals and alleyways and a motorboat tour of the canals. Only problem my battery gave out on the motor boat. Would recommend to anybody coming to Venice for the first time

What a lovely way to see some highlights of this lovely gem!! Our guide was very informative and helped us navigate the crowds and attraction lines. The boat ride offered a chance to view sights from a different vantage while our guide shared various tidbits of information about life in Venice. Highly recommend this tour.

Excellent tour, covering the essence of Venice - both on foot and then in private taxi from the water. Great guide. Small group.

Venice was our first stop while on a two week trip to Italy and we absolutely LOVED it there! We did this tour the first day which I recommend to give us an overview of Venice so that we could explore later on our own. The Basilica was simply gorgeous and so wonderful to go inside with the guide who knew so much history since she was a local who also spoke good English. Having headsets on is the way to go since you can wander and look on your own while getting the knowledge without having to be right next to the guide to hear the information. The walking guide was great because we went on some side streets and campos and got interesting information that we would have never seen or known on our own. Venice is brimming with so many interesting streets around every corner that it is so fun to just get lost and go with it! Then we had the Grand Canal Ride that took us through the canal while having narration the whole time. It is simply gorgeous and what a wonderful introduction to beautiful Venice. It was wonderful and we are so happy we did it. In fact we took six Viator tours during our two week stay in Venice, Florence and Rome and all of them were fantastic and I highly recommend! It is truly the best way to get a feel for the history and people so that you can go explore on your own later.

Tour guide was excellent and made the experience so much more than had I been alone. Without a guide, you'd miss too many subtle pieces of history and information, detracting from the visit. As usual, Viator/City Wonder Tours exceeded my expectations!

Chiara was amazing. She is a wealth of knowledge and so very approachable. She made us all feel so welcome and learned by the end of our tour. We came to love Venice that much more thanks to her. Our kids were enthralled with everything she had to say. Don't miss this tour, you will shortchange your self if you do.

If you only have one day in Venice like we did this is the perfect tour- it gave us a great over view of the history of Venice all the while seeing all the key points of Venice. I just wish we had done it in the morning so we had time to shop afterwards.

This is a great tour and probably one of the best ways to see all parts of Venice. Beware that the tour says it runs for 2 hours with a 1 hour water taxi ride which we understood to be a two hour tour all up one hour walking, one hour in the water taxi however it is actually a 3 hour tour. Because of the misunderstanding the tour would have overlapped our next Viator booked tour however our guide Susan did all she could to negotiate with the water taxi driver to drop us near the start point of the next tour so we didn't miss out. Gladly we were able to do both tours in the limited time we had before reboarding our ship.

We had an awesome time, it was a great tour and the tour guide was very knowledgable and shared her enthusiasm with us. Definitely worth it, the best ways to see venice if you do not have a lot of time. It is a very comprehensive tour.

Fantastic!! We loved the small group 7 size, and our tour guide Marie was great! Great information about Venice, with humor throughout to keep things interesting. It felt like a long tour in a good way. Going out on the boat felt crucial to the Venice experience as well. Over all, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Susan was our tour guide and she has been perfect, taking care of each details and making sure everyone is comfortable throughout the tour.

Very informative and pleasant tour, slow walks across the town and into the amazing St Mark's Basilica. The tour was ended with the water taxi ride. It was a very relaxing tour, Susan was very helpful and informative! Great way to start my venice stay

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour! - Susan our guide was very good, knowledgeable and took the tour at a relaxed pace making sure we had the time to take in the sights and history of Venice. The boat ride was perfect to see the sights you would otherwise miss from just walking around yourself. Very worthwhile taking this tour.

Tour guide was great. The water taxi ride was better than the gondola ride.
