Great tour, our guide Adriana was wonderful. She was knowledgeable, engaging, and very kind. this is a must do tour.
This was another terrific tour. Our guide was passionate about Venice and it showed in the way she described every building, every nook and cranny. The walking tour was very interesting. As well, the boat tour was a lot of fun. The guide made it a fun experience and he too was passionate about Venice.
This was a very interesting tour and with a very information guide. The boat tour of the Grand Canal was brilliant and Christina's enthusiasm for her beautiful city was contagious! We would love to return to Venice for longer.
Venice day was broken into two parts with two different guides. The walking tour was full of details and anecdotes that enriched our visit to many sites. Free lunch and shopping time was good after walking and seeing stores we wanted to go back to. Boat tour in afternoon was exceptional. A must -do tour!
excellent tour - both guides were awesome with personality and insight!!! i learnt a lot of things about Venice which would have taken a lot of time had i researched on my own!!
Our tour guide was excellent. A local person she was knowledgeable and helpful and knew the area and its history well. Well worth it.
Our guides were very informative and knowledgeable of the culture and history of their city. Although a whistle-stop tour, it gave us a very good appreciation of the background and history of Venice.

Very good walking tour and excellent boat tour!
This was a great way to learn about Venice and see so much of it in one day. We had excellent tour guides who provided lots of information and with a great sense of humor. The only thing I would want people to know is that there may be a break between when the walking tour ends and the boat tour begins. For example, we did the 1:45p tour, and the walking portion was about 2-4p, and the boat tour was either 4:30-5:30 or 5:30-6:30 assigned by the tour group. Just wanted you to be aware in case you make other plans for after the tour. We had opera tix for that night, so we were a little pressed for time in the end... but it was totally worth it and would highly recommend this tour to others!!
Loved both parts of the tour. Both the land and boat tour guides were excellent. Would definitely recommend this tour. Venice was the end of an 11-day cruise and truly enjoyed the tour.
The two tours were great! The walking tour was well organized and easy to find the starting point. The tour was punctual and finished on the proposed hour. this gave us enough time to browse for ourselves and have a lunch at our leisure before the Boat tour started. The guides on both were fluent in English and provided great content, all with lots of Italian passion and detail. Highly recommended.
Great tour, well organised.
Great tour!!! Both guides were excellent, well informed, pleasant and professional. Would recommend to friends. Grazie!
Great tour! It was great introduction to Venice in a short time frame.
Great tour guide and interesting walking tour. Wish the tour of St Marks' was longer though.
the tour was well organised. The tour guides were also very good.
Thoughoughly enjoyed this tour. The guide was witty, well informed and considerate. Meeting venue was well organised. Similarly, the boat trip was smoothly arranged and the boats not overcrowded.
Rosanna gave a wonderful tour in the city. Christina was very good for the boat ride through the grand canal.
This tour was a great way to see alot of Venice in a short time. The headsets that were used worked great and the areas we were taken to were navigated really well considering the crowds.
Both the walking tour and the boat tour were very interesting. The guide for our Venice city tour was very knowledgeable and gave us good info about where to get lunch during the break before the boat tour.
The guide for the boat tour was a little harder to understand but the ride itself was magnificent. Thanks for a great time.
Great to have a local to Venice who grew up and still lived there taking the tour. This offered great insight into life in Venice from personal experience.
Best way to see Venice and learn about all the history. Both tour guides we had were absolutely fantastic. This is a must do!!
Tour was excellent just long enough to see the sights. Guide was very knowledgable about the city and sights. Boat tour was excellent and enjoyable.
