Our guide, an older gentleman who spoke German very well, was extremely competent in art and city history from a layman's point of view.

The tour itself was very informative. Unfortunately the city was totally overcrowded during our trip, but the guided tour can't do anything about it. We especially liked the guided tour through the city, unfortunately it was very short. The registration itself with the printed booking confirmation was problem-free.

Everything's great! Good organization, nice guides...

Our guide, an older gentleman who spoke German very well, was extremely competent in art and city history from a layman's point of view. The walk from St. Mark's Square/San Marco, through the western Castello and the southern Cannaregio, and back to St. Mark's Square was perhaps a little too long compared to the guided tours in the Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Cathedral, but quite interesting for "Venice beginners". At St. Mark's Square we had to wait a good 20 minutes in between until other tour participants had arrived, which would have to be deducted from the total duration. In spite of carnival we did not have to stand at the eternally long queues for St. Mark's Cathedral, although there is actually no fast cash register here at this time. Unfortunately we couldn't see everything in the Doge's Palace due to lack of time, so a second visit might be worth it. I wouldn't recommend this tour to anyone who doesn't travel to Venice at carnival time and gets tickets for St. Mark's Cathedral and the Doge's Palace via other channels. But for the Venice entry it is an interesting thing!
