Just a great way to see Venice in a short period of time.
The organisation of all the tours we went on in Venice were excellent. When you book online in the UK you wonder what will happen when you get to your destination. No problems here, the tours were great value and the instructions I received were accurate. I have already recommended your company.
Both the walking and canal tours were perfect, the guide members were excellent, they both knew a lot about Venice , and they were born there. I highly recommend this tour.
This was a very informative and enjoyable tour a good way to start our visit to Venice. Once again our guide made us very welcome it was a pleasure to listen to her.

The walking tour was excellent , a very knowledgeable and delightful guide, very enthusiastic - well worth while.
The boat trip was also worthwhile and also well worth doing.
We have found in the past that all Viator excursions have proven to be worthwhile, and normall good value for money.
Loved the young lady on the canal tour.
Well worth the money. Everything was perfect. We will definitely do this again.
Excellent tour. Saw a lot of Venice,and the Guide spoke very good english.
The land tour was great. We saw all that was on the land portion. And no waiting! Our guide, Maria, was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. The pace was just right.
Be sure you have the whole day. The boat ride portion is late afternoon. Several of our group were on a cruise and couldn't make it!
Love it and med space and the guide was very informative and funny
Fantastic. ! real value for money. Totally enjoyable and exactly as described.
Lovely walk through Venice and our guide Barbara was delightful. For the boat ride they split us up into groups of eight or so and we went on small wooden boat which was brilliant. A must do on Venice!
This tour was amazing!
We booked this walking and boat tour for our first full day in Venice. We thought it would give us a good lay of the land...we where correct. Both our tour guides where fantastic, and we learned a lot more then we expected. After the tour day we felt like we knew how to get around for the next 8 days. This tour is very informative, and a great way to start your trip.
Excellent tour. The 2 hour walking tour was very informative in discussing the history and origins of Venice and our tour guide was wonderful. Each group of 20 for one tour guide had their own individual headsets to listen to their guide speak. The one hour boat tour which occurred about 3.5 hours later good for rest in between was also excellent. It was very intimate with only 8 people per small water boat. We were taken through some small canals and then the grand canal. It felt very personal with again a great guide explaining everything. Well worth the money!
Tour was great, very informational and funny tour guide. It was great to have a break between the tour and then boat tour. And the boat tour only has a few people per boat so that was really awesome and the boats looked super cool. Being on the water and listening more to the history of Venice!
We started with Stephie walking us around the historical sites of Venice. She was very informative. Then the boat tour with Caroline, our guide gave another view from the water.
Good tour to take for a quick, comprehensive overview of Venice.
Tour was great.. guide really knew her stuff.. fascinating walk around and boat trip was excellent.. stunning buildings.. amazing history..
Enjoyed the tour very much! The guide was very nice!
Great tour of Venice with very good informative guide. I would highly recommend this tour if you are visiting for the first time. Topped off with a fantastic 1 hour tour of thryGrand Canal in a private Taxi. Fantastic.
