This tour included two of Venice's most notable and famous structures, the Basilica and Doge's Palace on the Piazza San Marco but started near the Rialto Bridge. Unfortunately for us, that was undergoing some renovation, we were told, and we didn't go by it. But we did go to a landing nearby on the Grand Canal and saw a lot that was so interesting if not well known in between there and the featured sites. The guide, Susan, said she had lived in Venice for something like 20 years and if there is something about it that she doesn't know, I'd be surprised. Appropriating the cliché, she bubbled over with enthusiasm, sharing so much on what makes Venice the special place that it is, making the tour especially enjoyable as well as informative.

Very knowledgeable tour guide. Friendly and patient. Basilica tour allowed us to skip the long lineups so that in itself was worth the tour!

Venice has always been 1 on my bucket list and this tour did not disappoint. Our guide, Mirco was fabulous. The fact that he is a native Venetian only made it that much better. His knowledge and the beauty of this city makes the tour a MUST DO.
