  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Mose’ did a phenomenal job of leading our group. His knowledge and ability to tell a story was amazing. I suggest you do the 8am tour as you will be the first one in and have the place mostly to yourself until you get to the church.

    Our tour guide Paula was AMAZING! She was informative, kind, understanding and animated. Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide as we navigated through all the places, which entailed a lot of walking and a lot to see. Still ended up waiting in lines, but was kept occupied, helping to pass the time quickly. Our gondolier was funny, posed for pics whenever he noticed he was in frame, and answered any questions that we had.

    A longer gondola ride would be nice. Our guide was lovely and it was a nice small group of people on the boat. I would book again.

    Elly was knowledgeable about culture and history and made sure we were well taken care of. We had 2 island stops with demonstrations of glass blowing in Murano and the lace making in Burano.

    Very well organised set up and our tour guide Dawe Carlo was very good with his knowledge of the city and its history. Gondola was a lovely experience, very tranquil and great to travel through the city’s rich history. It only lasted 15-20 mins so watch out for that! Could have been because it was very busy. We were
    Lucky enough to have a gondola being serenaded through the canals. Our free surprise was truly magnificent. Seeing the city from 1700’s onwards and being immersed in that experience. Would recommend you do this when you visit Venice.

    Saint Mark Basilica is a must see. A top place. Tour company had effective ways of communication. Tour guide was experienced. Can stay at the end of the visit at Saint Mark Basilicia as mich as you want. Try to plan your bathroom breaks accordingly

    It was a scam. We went to the exact meeting place. There was no identifying person at the place. We asked several tours, not ours. I callled the number for Binge Tour 4x no answer. It was a phone number in India.

    I am going request a refund. Very disappointed with trip advisors venting process. We thought we’d be secure using trip advisor.

    Our guides were awesome! They both were very excited about the history and it showed. Knowledgeable, courteous, and thoroughly let us know history, facts and folklore. We loved our tours with Tour Guy.
    The St Marks Doges Palace tour with our first guide was wonderful. I did not catch her name but she has lived in this area for some 23 years but only a tour guide for 1 and 1/2 years. Marvelous story teller of the history and/or folklore. She was great at telling us what to look at and explaining things we were viewing.
    Flavia was our guide to the islands Murano and Burano.
    Murano we toured and met the Master glass maker and saw how he fired and sculpted some light covers, very hot even though it was raining outside. The gallery of glass works were nothing short of awesome! Wow!

    Burano was a sight to see of the many different colored houses, the master lace maker with beautiful works of lace art, and cannot forget the best gelato (ice cream). What An experience.
    We unfortunately, got rained out for the gondola ride thru the canal system in Venice and we’re unable to take that ride.
    Over all we were very pleased with the experience

    The guide was informative and quite knowledgeable but injected humorous
    Anecdotes which made it fun.

    There was some issue at end for gondola ride, but the employees were able to resolve it. All in all, it was a good tour.

    The Doges palace was quite interesting!

    We absolutely loved this experience. Our host, Marco, gave us an informative and fun tour of the Rialto Market as we selected the fish and vegetables that we were to cook that day. He was obviously a regular patron of this area as he was greeted by many of the vendors and other customers. We then moved on to his Osteria where Marco demonstrated and had us participate in the preparation of several appetizers, a main dish and a desert. This was a real cooking class where we actually learned some useful techniques and methods that we will bring home with us. Marco was a joy to spend time with and his passion for both cooking and Venice itself were clearly evident. We finished by eating a fabulous meal and even took home some leftovers as it was more than we could finish. We spent over 5 hours and had a great time. We highly recommend this tour.
