High water in St Marks square during our ships walking tour was bit of a bummer. Forcing everyone to the raised sidewalks and making it crowded on a not so busy day.

On disembarkation day, we did the ship's Walking tour of Venice with Gondola Ride. It was perfect because they held our luggage and then transported us by bus to the airport. The walking tour was interesting. Must wear sensible walking shoes as our guide led us up and down over canals around the narrow streets of Venice. The streets are very crowded with many tourists but it was very pretty to see and experience. Read Less

It would have been much nicer to get to St. Mark's Square by way of the Grand Canal rather than the "outer route." This shore excursion did not help participants experience the beauty and history of Venice that we had experienced on our own in previous visits to Venice. More instructions about alternatives back to the Viking Star (instead of the prearranged shuttle boats) might have enriched our experience. The tour did not take anyone to the Rialto Bridge, La Salute, or other places that could have been included in the walking tour! Read Less

Lot's of walking as the boat docks quite a distance from St. Mark's Square. We saw Doge's palace, bell tower and basilica from the outside and then the long walk back to pick up our boat back to the ship. The square is another location that every cruise ship and tour brings it's passengers to see so it is jammed with people milling around to try and get some pictures. Read Less

Excellent guide on walking tour. An excellent way to see hidden Venice. Two streets away from the tourist mayhem is a different Venice. Also did an evening canal tour when the ship docked. That was quite good too.

Our off the beaten path tour of Dorsoduro with Luisella Romeo of See Venice was fantastic! Luisella is passionate about her city, and it shows in her enthusiasm. We especially enjoyed seeing some things that are far, far from the popular tourist sights and their throngs of people. I will definitely reserve another tour with Luisella when we return to Venice, and see another hidden part of the city! Read Less
