Venice Private Tours

Welcome to the glorious, incomparable city of Venice, Italy. With its grand marble palaces and churches seeming to float atop the city's many canals, and boasting the world's most artistic masterpieces per square mile, this city will amaze you.

Take a private Venice tour and see the city's famous sights and utterly charming neighbourhoods with a friendly local guide.

Hop on a gondola, or do as the locals do and take a Vaporetto (water-bus) along Venice's fabled Grand Canal. Your guide will point out the architectural wonders as you glide along, from the Rialto Bridge to Doge's Palace and Piazza San Marco. Make sure to go inside the Basilica di San Marco, one of the most spectacular houses of worship in the world. Spend an afternoon in the elegant Dorsudoro District, where you can gaze at the works of the Venetian Old Masters in the venerable Gallerie dell'Accademia.

Your guide is happy to tailor a private Venice tour that suits your unique interests in this beautiful city.
Tour Guide Legal Requirements
If the nature of the tour is that the guide is 'interpreting the cultural and natural heritage of an area', Italy requires the guide have a guiding license. A person giving tours such as the 'best nightlife spots', 'shopping and fashion tour' or 'restaurant tour' for example, does not require a license. This definition follows the European standard for tour guiding (CEN).

To become a Licensed Tourist Guide, candidates must pass an examination given by the local public tourist authorities to assess and test their knowledge of the area in terms of its history and geography, its art and architecture, its museums and art galleries, churches, its environs and cultural features. As part of the requirements, candidates must also prove their knowledge of each foreign language they applied for with oral and written tests. report error

All ToursByLocals guides have met our ToursByLocals Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
