We were in Venice for 1.5 days and this tour was a great way to see the city! Very enjoyable and loved the gondola ride. Have lunch in St Mark’s Square during the break and people watch!

Our guide was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable and also very upbeat and brought a very positive energy to the day. Any time someone had a question she had a very informative response. She brought her own experience and perspective to the tour as well as giving very clear historical information to what we were seeing.

This tour was okay. Venice is not that large so we had already seen everything the evening before. The tour guide was boring and we ended up leaving early so we could explore on our own. If you are going to Venice, there is no need for this walking tour. You can see pretty much everything on your own and twice!.

Our tour guide Alessandro Trabuca was excellent and had such passion for the community and the beauty of Venice. Although it was alot of walking it was a great tour and amazing one too.
