This was a great walking tour! There’s no way that we would have discovered all those hidden places away from the center on our own. Our guide was so great at explaining everything. Even my 12 year old enjoyed the tour very much. Highly recommend!!

What a day! I've spent a weekend in Venice with my girlfriend and we really enjoyed this new concept of guided tour. After 45mins we could jump off to have a quick break and then we jump on to finish our tour. Both guides were fantastic! - I recommend it!

Perfect way to explore Venice

This is the second Vox City Walks tour that I've done in Italy and I love them! Venice is such a great city to explore on foot, so this walking tour was perfect, and once again our tour guide was fantastic. I also can't recommend the digital guide highly enough, it's so so handy to use in foreign cities.
Highly recommend - absolutely best value for money

This was such a great tour and we loved the fact that we could leave and join whenever we wanted to! The guides were friendly and there was always one available wherever we were, within half an hour - I think they must be staged that way (very impressive organisation). We were able to track them on our phone just like Uber. If you are in Venice for 2-3 days this is a must - I would thoroughly recommend!
