Private guides in Venice

How to hire a private tour guide in Venice

A private guide in Venice costs from €35 per person for a few hours on a set itinerary, or €285 per group for a custom 3-hour itinerary of your choice.

That is actually not too expensive if you think about it—that works out to just €85 per hour. Or to put it another way, a family of four would be paying just €71 per person for a private guide for half the day.

(The other option, of course, it to sign up for a group tour with an established itinerary, where the cost can be as low as €20–€30 per person.)

On any tour, stick next to the guide.

Walking from stop to stop on the tour, you’ll be able to chat with her, ask questions, and hear her answers and explanations to everyone else’s questions as well. You'll get a lot more out of your tour (and bang for your buck) if you just stick close to the guide.
