Venice Private and Small Group Guided Tours

From labyrinthine alleys to eclectic architectural styles, there’s no place in the world like Venice, one of Italy’s greatest treasures.
Inseparable from the city itself, the magical canals and waterways of Venice have inspired the musings of Hemingway, Byron, and James, among others. However, with tourism and rising sea levels taking their toll on the city, it’s increasingly difficult to find the real essence of Venice, despite its history as a trading mecca and Renaissance hotbed. Uncover Venice's charms with Context's private and small group guided tours.

Venice Private Tours and Venice Small Group Tours

We offer dozens of private and small group guided tours of Venice. Our most popular tour in Venice is our Venice Boat Tour, which takes place on a beautiful, wooden private boat, allowing visitors access to less-frequented canals for an immersive escape from the crowds—a truly special experience. Our art tours of Venice are also quite popular. We offer both an Early Renaissance Art Tour and a Titian in Venice Tour, providing two different looks at an artistic hotbed of the Renaissance; the former exploring the relationship between art and history in churches, palaces, and public spaces, and the latter focusing on the impact of one of Venice's artistic titans. Traveling with kids? Our Lion Hunt of Venice with Kids Tour is a great way to introduce kids to history, art, and seeing a place with new eyes.

The tour was phenomenal! We always have high expectations of Context Tours, but Sara exceeded in every way. She clearly has a very deep knowledge about the subject matter. But not only that—Sara conveys such delight in the material and is a wonderful story teller. We feel very lucky to have spent the afternoon with Sara learning about the city she loves.
Louisa was excellent. The second half of the tour was excellent. The first half was spent staring at the outside wall of the former shipyard. There was nothing to see. Furthermore, it was unbearably hot. First, there was far too much time spent describing the former shipyard when the guide was so knowledgeable on so many other topics. Second, given that we could not see inside the wall, it would be much better to talk about the shipyard while sitting in the boat in the shade. Again, the tour guide was excellent. This suggestion for improvement is for the design of the tour itself.
Andrea was fantastic. Made us feel totally at home as if we had family in Venice. Was super knowledgeable and able to adapt to tired legs and a flash rainstorm while still leading an amazing tour. Really well done
