Both sites are absolutely incredible! Basilica is a must see

My sister and I were expecting good things from this tour, but it was far far better than that! We easily found the meeting place. Everyone gets a headphone set so you can always hear your guide, and ours was called Rosanna. She was so lovely, upbeat, friendly, and funny. We did the Basilica first and we were lucky to be in there when it was illuminated and it was absolutely beautiful (it is usually only illuminated for mass and other than that for one hour a day). The Basilica also hosts an amazing artwork entirely made of gold and just under 2,000 jewels. This was information provided by Rosanna, and a lot of what made this tour good was all the facts she told us. It would not have been half as amazing without context. Then we did the Doges Palace where, as part of this tour, you actually walk inside and along the Bridge of Sighs, which we weren't expecting! Also the Doges Palace has the largest canvas artwork in the world, which was astounding to see. Two very happy customers!

A great way to learn about the city without the crowded streets.

This was a wonderful tour that was paced perfectly. Our guide was very knowledgeable and easy to follow. It was a joy to navigate the streets without all the crowds and the earpieces worked very well for easy hearing.

Hidden Venice 1.5-Hour Walking Tour Reviewed by

A beautiful trip to Venice, only far from the sights.

The boat ride was very beautiful. One could enjoy the beauty of Venice in its entirety rather than significant sights. The ship is very loud, so you can hardly hear people talking about sights on the microphone.

Excellent tour. Guide was quite knowledgeable

I enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and provided us with a lot of information about Venice itself, Italian customs and the history of the Doge palace.

Great people watching from a very nice spot

This was good value having seen the cost of drinks at this venue. We received our first drinks and a bowl of crisps and second drinks with a bowl of pretzels. All good.
