We loved our 2 hour walking tour of Venice ! It was a perfect length of time and we certainly did a lot of walking and covered several areas that we wouldn’t have seen eg the hospital .

Unfortunately we couldn't find the meeting point it was too far away from our hotel. We did try for over an hour but we still needed to cross the river etc so gave up. Venice is a maze. However the guide was kind enough to ring and ask where we were and offer us the opportunity to go the next day.

Brilliant ! Our guide was very nice and taught us some historical facts, as well as a bunch of fun facts about Venice, that we would not have been able to read from a generic tourism guide... Highly recommend !

Helpful to better get to know Venice

This was a great way to start my trip to Venice. I was able to get a lay of the land, and understand how Venice is laid out. It's very top-level, and you don't get much detail of anyplace. It's also interesting to look at buildings, and not go in them. So, if you're looking to really understand Venice, this isn't the right tour for you. But if you're looking for the highlights and to get a feel of the city, this is a great way to start.

Enjoyable first day.

My husband and I went on this tour in the afternoon of September 30th, 2019. It was the perfect length and our guide was awesome (can not remember her name but she had blonde hair!) She taught us a great amount about the history of Venice, showed us some awesome spots to visit, and explained the current culture of Venice from a local's perspective. Definitely recommend this tour for your first time in Venice!

Local guide of Venice with history and advice from Sergio. Focusses on hidden Gems that you don't usually see but can spend more time at later at your convenience. Small groups make sure you can hear the explanations. Pace is just right but comfy shoes are advisable. Our guide Sergio had the info just about right but answered all our questions.
