If you can get Marina, you’re lucky. She’s a wonderful guide, great with kids and knows so much about the history of Venice. There wasn’t a question she did not answer. The tour itself was spectacular. A little over 3 hours and worth every second....More

We loved this walking food tour. Our guide (Katy?) was a local Venetian so we learnt a lot about the local way of life, Venice and its people. The food was delicious and the group were fun and friendly. This was a well organised tour,...More

Exceptional guided tour. Our guide Alessandro was extremely knowledgeable and a big contribution to make it a memorable experience. The Basilica’s lighted interior is an unique experience that can’t be missed.

Our tour guide was terrific. I don't recall her name, but she was British. Fun accent. The Doge's Palace was first. It's room upon room of paintings and art. But our guide made it so interesting with stories of things that happened in the various...More

Joined this tour with a leap of faith, not knowing what to expect and this was my first trip in Venice. Never been with any tour previously either. It was led by Mose, and it started on time with no chaos. Then, Mose slowly built...More

This was excellent, not cheap at 89 euros, but worth it. A small group, about 10 people, in December, went inside after services. Guide Josephina was great. Knowlegable and friendly. Having the place almost to yourself is fabulous and the interior night lighting is quite...More

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri
(districts), and the only one not facing onto the
Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
