I visited Venice for the day with my 79 year old mother last weekend. Karen met us at the train station and we spent the next 4 hours having a fantastic private walking tour, wending our way gradually to St Marks Square. It was a boiling day and Karen thoughtfully kept in the shade, down lots of small uncrowded back... More

Our family of 6 (3 generations) spent the day on a walking tour with The Venice Experience tours. It was a fantastic day and we saw parts of Venice that most tourists will never see. Planning the tour over email with Karen was a breeze. Mike was our guide for the day and he was promptly on time to start... More

Karen provided a very enjoyable tour of Venice. We spent six hours touring, with Karen allowing our family to adapt the tour to our liking. A tour with Karen is a great way to start a stay in Venice.

Awesome day out, just do it. You get to see three islands in one day. Value for money. Murano glass factory is amazing.

This is simply a great tour. Karen was an amazing tour guide who had a great personality and was knowledgeable everything we wanted to do know about. She explained the different neighborhoods and a little bit of history with each spot. Go on this tour for a great experience of the backstreets of the city!

What a grand time we had with our guide Mike Henderson. He met us in the lobby of our hotel and showed us Venice as we would never have been able to see it. Since the city is very hard to navigate, it really does require a guide for the first day or you will never find your way. Mike... More

I would highly recommend this tour. We met our guide Karen and she had previously asked us our interests to make sure we saw what we wanted. When we met her in person (she came to our hotel and met us!) and swept us right into the culture. She explained the neighborhoods, took us to eat a great local spots... More

Six of us spent 7 hours with Michael Henderson on Labor Day. Mike met us at the train station and then led us on a comfortable walk through the backstreets and must see sights of Venice. Mike is very knowledgeable and low key. We had a great relaxing day. Since the streets of Venice are so confusing, we felt like... More

Karen was a great guide. My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. Karen was extremely helpful and informative. We fell in love with this city. We will be back soon and fingers crossed for a much longer time.

Our family group of 6 had only 2 full days in Venice. Ages ran from grandparents (us) and daughter & son-in-law and grandchildren (11 & 13). I had tried to use Venice Experience in 2011 trip with another grandchild based on an excellent recommendation of a friend. Karen & Mike Henderson were out of Venice. We were able to connect... More
