My daughter and I participated in a tour of Venice yesterday conducted by Claire. She was extremely energetic, positive, and enthusiastic. Claire commanded a detailed grasp of Venetian art, geography, and history . . . and she had a gift for communicating it with clarity and in a manner that holds your interest for the entirety of the tour. Claire encouraged, and very capably answered, questions throughout our tour. My daughter and I both recommend her very highly.

Chiara was befar the best tour director we have EVER had. Being in the tour business or selves, me wife and I felt that the personal touch and the details to the littlest of things bought the whole experience to life. Not being a history buff or for knowing alot of the history in this area, She answered and explained things more that you could ever get out of a book. Whatever the price or time you met have to spend in Venice, spend it with her and you will have the best experience you will ever have on a tour. Signed Mr.@ Mrs Hill

Our morning tour of the Doge palace with Grace was enriching and intimate. Despite being a very crowded Easter weekend in Venice, our small group of 4 had an in depth skip the line tour with an expert guide. Thank you Grace! Then after lunch, we met Roberta with her wealth of tips and tricks as well as a visit to the golden St Marks cathedral. We topped it all off with a gondola ride (in the rain, but still serene). Very busy day but so worth it!

My vacation was canceled due to COVID 2 days after I booked this tour, spending over $550. When I booked it said FREE CANCELLATION so I let them know right away. I got an email after a few days saying they gave me a credit. I won't be going to Italy any time soon but they want to keep all of my money. I asked for a full refund and haven't heard back from them. I've emailed a dozen times without response and a VM that was vague and had no info. Now they aren't responding to me!

If you don't want a hassle, go somewhere else!

Grazia was an amazing guide and we felt so fortunate to spend the day with her. Her knowledge is astounding -- art, history, architecture; we learned so much. Grazia is a delightful person and her passion for Venice absolutely rubbed off on us. Thanks Grazia!!!

Great way to site important sites in Venice. Includes skip the line entries into St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. Waiting lines were very long so that alone was worth it. We had a very knowledgeable guide who shared a lot of interesting info.

Of our three days in Venice, we opted to take a tour with a guide for one full day, and are we ever glad we did. Chiara, from "The Roman Guy Tours" was informative, engaging and full of passion for this wonderful city. We learned about so many details we could not possibly have gleaned from just studying up on a site ourselves before visiting a site. We loved discovering the little things we would likely not have noticed, or if we did, not understand the context. My favourite was seeing a sculpture outside of the Palazzo Ducale of Adam and Eve. She, holding her hand to her chest and pointing at Adam. He, holding his hand up as if to say, "wasn't me".

We toured the Piazza San Marco, explored the Basilica Di San Marco (the Doge's Church), the Palazzo Ducale (Duke's Palace), The Campanile Di San Marco (Bell Tower), walked some of the streets north of the Piazza to see the architecture, and enjoyed a gondola ride with the group along narrow canals and out into the Grande Canale.

The earphones were very comfortable and it was very easy to follow Chiara's descriptions at all times.

Another big benefit: skipping the line is a real pleasure when it is long, your time is limited, and your feet are a little tired already. We highly recommend the The Roman Guy Tour company, and this specific tour.

The Roman Guy was great - we had 2 tour guides due to the length of tour - both were great - knowledgeable, funny, honest, and kind! They allowed us to get an insider's view of all sites and the gondola ride alone was worth the price of the tour! Gondola rides were approximately 80 euros...Very pleased with the experience and you will LOVE this - don't hesitate! Also, if you book more than 1 tour, they will offer you a discount - great incentive for us to also book a tour in Rome. Thank you so much for making our first trip to Venice special!! Mille grazie!
