What to expect
An expert guide will create a customized itinerary just for you with this private 3-hour tour. Choose from five different departure times to suit your schedule, and provide information about your interests and ideas at the time of booking. Meet your guide at the prearranged time in central Venice. Depending on your preferences, your itinerary may include a walking tour of historic churches, markets, hidden squares and opulent palaces. Whether you’re interested in architecture, Renaissance art or food and wine, your guide will design a tour that’s just for you and share fascinating information about the history and culture of Venice along the way.  For example, some popular spots to tour around St Mark’s Square include the Santa Maria Formossa Church and the Rialto Fish Market, where Venetians head to purchase the freshest catch of the day. With all tours, stop in at a traditional wine bar for a drink and cicchetti — the Venetian version of bar snacks. Please note: Your tour will include visits to the exterior of buildings only. St Mark’s Square, St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace cannot be visited on this tour. Churches may also be inaccessible on Sunday mornings when religious ceremonies are taking place.

Private Tour - Venice
Sep 2019 • Friends
Our guide (Francesca) was delightful. So knowledgeable! She customized our tour to be just what we wanted. It was so fun to have her to ourselves (only four of us).

Not what I expected
Based on other tours we have done, this was not very good. Our guide was not the friendliest person and often complained about rude tourists. We got the private tour because my mom can only walk very slow, but the guide kept getting ahead of us and seemed irritated we weren’t keeping up. We got the feeling that she gets kickbacks from the shops she brings us to if we buy something. She spent quite awhile talking about glass making and brought us to a shop that seemed a bit out of the way and we had zero interest in glass. The same with respect to a mask shop. We did ask her about the significance of time masks, but we didn’t need to go out of our way to visit a shop. She talked many many times about the additions to the tops of buildings but it was quite repetitive. The trip seemed to lack historical facts that you usually get on tours like these. I would not recommend this tour.

We were lucky!
We were fortunate to have Barbara as a guide. She was a fabulous guide who spoke great English and really knew her city. She took us among the back streets of Venice telling us of its history. She ended the tour at a great restaurant where we grabbed lunch. It was clear to us that Barbara really loves Venice and was proud and pleased to share it with us. Great tour!
