Venice: City Walking Tour
- Duration options: 1 - 4 hours
This tour was awesome! The meeting point is easy to find, the guide was punctual and very informative. (Can't remember her name, she was the lady that speaks 4 languages including Italian, French, and English.) I don't normally like guided tours, I prefer doing my own thing, but I wanted to do this, to have a basic understanding on Venice itself as well as on the Venetian culture. This was the perfect experience for me, especially since our group was very small (7 of us all together). You have the option NOT TO take the boat ride back as well - which exactly what my choice was, since my hotel was right by St. Mark's.
Wonderful walking tour and very informative guide! I loved exploring the small alleys and hidden squares. We started at San Marco Square and saw the Basilica and saw the Doge's Palace. After that we went down little alleys and saw the behind the scenes Venice. We walked to the Rialto Bridge and back to San Marco Square enjoying the beautiful views of canals and bridges.
Our guide was great, we learned a lot about the city and the tour was just the right amount of time. Even little thingS you wouldn’t noticed at first become evident as the tour guide points them out to you.... super cool experience and highly recommended. We even had the tour while the high tie was in which was a good reflection of the tour company (not to cancel)
Walking tour was excellent. Very informative. Guide's accent was a little difficult to understand at times. Gondola ride was ok. A lot of congestion on the canals. Good way to experience a Gondola ride without spending the normal fee
Elderly Italian gentleman guide knew so much, he had such extensive experience. Quite a strong accent but still understandable if you listen closely.
