If you are only able to pick one tour in Venice, pick this one! St Mark's Basilica at night was breathtaking. Our tour guide Susan was a pro at allowing our group access to every nook and sharing stories specific to that area of the basilica. Susan's demeanor had our family entranced as we reverently toured. Wow! You'll miss so much if you just glance in. Each mosaic has a story and a purpose for why it is where it is. And when you are seated in the dark and suddenly they turn up the lights ...... amazing once in a lifetime awe!

This was one of the most memorable experiences from my vacation in Italy. Once you get inside, you sit in the pews and they turn the lights out. Then, slowly, they come on one by one for a truly dramatic and enlightening ! experience. So cool!

Absolutely amazing - well worth doing if you can. Nearly 2 hours with an amazing guide in a small group seeing things not normally seen with groups through the day. Incredible history.

Amazing tour - the night time tour is the best way to see the Basilica. Our guide Francesca was lively and engaging, and opinionated! We really enjoyed her presentation of the church. The meeting point was easily found, and we had a small group about 10 people.

Our guide was excellent and open to questions. The tour was a plus without all the tourists and the lighting of St. Mark's at night was special.
