Good commentary- but overpriced considering this was not a coach or boat tour, it was a walking tour and there was no need to "skip the line" as the queue was short. So we were paying a lot extra for the local guide's

Could not understand tour guide.
Sail Date: June 2015
Could not understand tour guide. Her accent was VERY strong. Headsets were just terrible--garbled and too soft. Waste of money.

Excellent native Venetian guide who was obviously proud of his native place. We were delighted we took the tour. We had spent a few days in Venice prior to going on board and the tour was the finishing touch

Tons of history again. I had been to Venice before but had not taken this tour and it is well worthwhile. Our guide was very good. and knowledgable. The volume of art in this place is almost overwhelming.

The only tour we booked with the cruise line. The guide was obviously a sprinter in a previous life and had to be asked to slow down on several occasions. We left before the trip to the Glass Factory gift shop.

We really enjoyed doing the Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the prison on our own and at our own pace. every room was spectacular, and the large room was incredible. we also wandered about the streets and virtually got lost but just follow the crowds, they seem to know what they are doing. we also loved the music on St Marks Square, so unusual to see this outside restaurants Read Less

We booked our own tour of Doge's Palace and spent the day wandering around Venice. Despite the rain and hail we found it to be a charming city that we would one day like to return to and spend some more time on our own there.

Secret Venice Walking tour was the best - took us through the back streets of Venice. Did it in the am when it wasn't so crowded and hot. Afterwards, we walked Venice and had lunch on our own and didn't get lost once because of this excursion. Doge's Palace was good along with St.Mark's Square and the Basilica. I thought that the gondola ride was too short for the amount of money we paid. Read Less
