Great tour, very good guide. We almost missed this as the meeting place on trip adviser was incorrect (apparently it was changed recently) so ended up being 20 minutes late.

Responded 30 Sep 2019
Dear Client Thank you for providing your feedback, I am very pleased the tour was great and you enjoyed the explanation provided. Do you recall the guide's name by any chance? Our meeting point has been located in the same spot for over ten years, there was no change. We always meet at the entrace to the Royal Garden on the water front of St. Marks Square. From St. Marks facing the Basilica turn right and walk towards the open water. At the two giant columns facing the water turn right, and following the line of trees after a 100 metres you will come to the entrance of the Royal Gardens where we will be waiting holding a sign with your name written on it. It is recommended to check the locations for your tours earlier to ensure you don't miss any activities scheduled. Kind regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept

This should be called a Standing Tour. Our guide was very difficult to understand. Her English was very poor. Most of the tome was spent standing in the square with her describing the surroundings in detail.

Great tour, just enough history and information to stay interesting the entire time. St. Marks basilica was fascinating and enjoyed hearing the interesting tidbits with that. Would definitely recommend if you want to learn more about Venice’s major sites in two hours.
