Very interesting tour of how and why the buildings were done in Venice. Tour guide was freindly and helpful. Even gave us great tips on where to get drinks and meals later.

Our expert guide revealed a face to Venice that we never knew existed. Her knowledge of the depth and breadth of Venician artistic history was astounding and we were thrilled to visit sights not found on the tour books. We recommend this tour highly.

The tour was very interesting. The guide was very knowledgeable, communicated well. Unfortunately the architecture along the Grand Canal was not included.

This was really a "private tour"! Our family were the only ones on the tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and explained all about the architecture of various churches and buildings in Venice. He took us to some places we had never seen and probably wouldn't have found on our own. The meeting place could have been somewhere more well-known and easier to find, but we were early and had found the place earlier in the day, so it worked out fine.

While this is touted as a Art and Architecture tour, it was a wonderfu tour about the city of Venice, it's people and history and how they live. We visited the back streets of Venice and discovered another part of the city that tourist don't see. We avoid many of the busy main streets and alleys and skirted around other large groups and crowds. We walked into many churches and buildings most overlooked and had time to see the architecture of the buildings and what the buildings were used for. We learned a lot about the city and how it was built and the problems it is now facing with higher waters and the sinking of the land. Avoid the large tour groups and join a Viator tour where you can actually hear and talk to the guides and better yet, enjoy more flexibility in the tour ctering more to your interest.

Our guide Antonella was very patient with six architecture novies but we learnt to look up and to appreciate the differnt styles of Byzantine, Renaissance, Baroque, Roccoco, as well we learnt quite a bit of history of Venezia. Fascinating and worthwhile.

The tour was good but as I did a half day walking tour the previous day this tour covered some of the same areas.
