Day 1 in the morning is great to get a first impression of the city.

We really enjoyed the 1 1/2 hour walking tour around Venice. Our guide was easy to understand (English speaking) and we saw and learned about places and architecture that we would have missed on our own. The starting point was St. Mark's Square so we hit all the highlights and more. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent guide, very clear explanations, about the streets and how to guide yourself by looking at the indications, it was very useful for the rest of the trip. The communication with the headphones allowed those of us who wanted photos to stay a little behind without losing detail of the information.

The tour was great! We walked (a lot!) and explored many roads, pontes and campos. The guide explained the History of the city and also the History behind the Monuments. We had almost 2 hours break before the gondola ride, and that was not expected. By the time we Started the gôndola ride, it was already very dark.

We did the tour with the guide Francesco and it was great. It was important to him to reach each individual in the group with his explanations and he showed us beautiful corners far away from the tourist streets. The guided tour was in English and he has such a clear pronunciation that you don't need to be fluent in English to understand him. Of course, it also helped a bit that he accompanied the explanations with his sympathetic Italian manner. We learned a lot about the history of Venice that day and would always book a guided tour with Francesco. As a guide we give him 5 stars. Thank you Francesco :)

The walking tour wasn’t that great. The guide didn’t really give too many details on the sites we were seeing. Now Ricardo, we had for all of 10 minutes walking us to the gondola ride was FANTASTIC! He told us more in 10 minutes than our 1.5 hour tour! Request him if you can!!

The only downside is that the guide was too pressed. Generally interesting visit. The gondola ride lacked explanations

Was a top tour guide who brought the most important key points about Venice over well in the short time - and also places that you don't get to see otherwise - and it was an exciting tour. I can only recommend the guided tour in the morning, as there are still relatively few tourists around at this time.

Experience to be recommended for those who want to wander around the city and learn many curiosities at the same time thanks to the presence of a guide. Right price/quality experience! Very kind and cordial. The only flaw: I booked the tour in Italian and during the tour the guide explained things in two languages: Italian/English. A lot of time is wasted that could be invested in more exhaustive questions or explanations.

the first guide Valentina was very good and very kind, she explained very well and answered all the questions of the members of the group in a quick and targeted way. very good. the second guide, Alessandra, who accompanied us before the gondola ride, is a marvel, fantastic, funny and very friendly. he brilliantly conducted an Italian/French tour switching from one language to another with impressive ease! we are definitely satisfied
