Such an amazing experience. There were 8 of us plus the guide and we sat in darkness, waiting for the lights to be turned on and once they were, the mosaics were breathtaking! Our guide gave us a history of the basilica and then we went down to the crypt where St Mark's tomb once was and now the tombs of the Patriarchs of Venice lay. We then went to view the Pala d'Or and the high altar, both amazing! Our guide Elena was amazing (I know I uae the word a lot!) and I would highly recommend this tour. It may seem pricey but so worth it!
A really interesting tour with unexpected stories and interesting facts and knowledge that you wouldn't have found otherwise. Our tour guide was Julia - she was really friendly, lovely and great at keeping the group together, telling stories and looking after everyone. She spoke really well and you could always hear her even in busier areas. It was nice to see small corners and hear the mysteries surrounding the city - something that's new from the facts you find in tour books! Great tour thank you!
Great tour to popular as well as less frequented areas in Venice along with interesting background stories (at bit more murder stories might be good though). Definitely gave us a better understanding of the long history of this city. Plus our guide, Anna-Maria, had an answer for every question.
Such a great experience hearing all about Venice and it’s secrets and legends! Was brilliant to step into a whole complete different side of Venice (the night time) and Julia - our guide; was fantastic! She was lovely and such a character! 100% recommend
Wonderful evening. Guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Really enjoyed seeing things which aren't open during normal hours, especially the crypt.
