We had a fantastic hour with our guide in the Saint Marks Basilica in Venice. We were one of only two groups in the basilica and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The tour didn’t feel rushed and our guide was very funny and knowledgeable. What a special feeling to be in the basilica after closing time, after seeing it packed during the day.

Being alone in Saint Mark's was amazing. I had already seen the church at daytime but, in the night with a small group and our group and guided by Martina, was an incredible experience. She performed a great tour. I do recommend 100%

An amazing experience. A wonderful guide -- lots of wonderful information about a sight that has to be one of the most stunning in the world. Not inexpensive but totally worth it!

If we cannot find a guide to lead you that day we'll offer you the same tour on the next available date or give you credit for another tour anywhere else in the world.
