Meet your local guide in St. Mark's Square, the most famous piazza in Venice. Learn about the historical events that took place here.
Admire the St. Mark's Basilica's exterior, before entering the iconic Venetian church. There are more than 85,000 square feet of mosaic in the church.
Follow your guide down Venice's side streets, full of hidden gems and gorgeous architecture.
From the center of the Rialto Bridge, the view of the boats traveling down the Grand Canal is so surreal, you may have to pinch yourself to make sure you aren’t dreaming.
If you're lucky enough to stay the night in Venice, the Rialto District is full of the best bars and restaurants.
The word “Campo” means “square” in Venice. The island is filled with beautiful squares and we’ll walk through some on our way to the Rialto Bridge.
Walk past a palace with an ornate staircase that twirls up its side. Venice is full of grand palaces and your guide knows where the best ones are hidden.
After exploring Venice's romantic streets by foot, climb aboard a traditional gondola for a cruise along the city’s famous canals.
Our trusted gondolier will drop you off just a two minute walk away from St. Mark's Square, where the tour began.
Is your time in Venice limited? Would you prefer to spend the majority of your visit to Venice eating cichetti, drinking, shopping and relaxing? Most people visit Venice for just a day or two, which makes it difficult to squeeze in all the best things to do and see. Experience the best of Venice in just a few hours, leaving you ample time to wander down romantic canal side streets and enjoy yourself. This 2.5 hour tour includes:
Just a few minutes away from St. Mark’s Square is the Rialto Bridge, as much a symbol of Venice as St. Mark's Basilica. Initially built from old boats, the unstable bridge was rebuilt in 1500. On one side of the bridge is the Rialto Market in the Rialto neighborhood, a place that’s been satisfying appetites for seven centuries. The oldest of the four bridges that span the Grand canal, the Rialto Bridge features a 24 foot tall arch. Providing access to the district, the Rialto Bridge enables Venetians to carry on their business in the area.

We did the Hidden Venice Express Tour with Gondola Ride. Chiara was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable. She met us at St. Marks Square for We did the Hidden Venice Express Tour with Gondola Ride. Chiara was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable. She met us at St. Marks Square for the start of the tour. Chiara gave the history of Venice and a lot of information about the Square and St. Marks Basilica. She also pointed out how the clock tower changes every hour including the ringing of the bell by the two statues, which we were all able to witness. During the tour's walking part, she gave some tips as to places to shop and the more authentic places to eat. The last part of the tour is a 30-minute gondola ride with our own party/family. Families are not mixed with other families. We boarded our gondola at the Hard Rock Cafe station and Marco, our gondolier, took us out to the Grand Canal near the Rialto Bridge. This tour was very informative and worth the price for all the sites that we went to...more

We met the guide @ 9:30 in the morning at St. Mark's square and headed out with our group of only 4 people around the city - back alleys, bridges, Grand Canal, you name it. The tour includes a skip the line pass at the Basilica (do NOT miss this) and probably save us an hour. It also includes a Gondola ride which is classic Venice. The guide was Italian, but spoke English and had lots of historical details. It was great...more

We decided to do a tour, and had done the Roman Guy in Rome, so decided on them to do Venice. We were not disappointed. The tour guide in Venice was just as great as our Rome Tour guide. She made sure that we knew where to meet her, and again was very knowledgeable and passionate about her tour. She always made sure that we had time to visit each spot at a relaxed pace, and took the time to answer all of our questions so that we truly did understand all of the sights we saw. The end of the tour was a 30 minute gondola ride through some of the small canals and even the grand canal. Our gondola guide also gave us insight to some of the not so advertised buildings and folklore of Venice. Highly recommend this tour group to anyone visiting. We know that when we go back to Venice, we will make sure that we have time to do some of the longer Roman Guy tours...more
