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.

Nothing. Better than tours by locals
My family really enjoyed this tour. Paola was a great guide. She did a wonderful job explaining things in the Doge's Palace, telling us about Galileo, and showing us different parts of Venice from the top of the bell tower. She was also great with my children, especially in trying to engage my son who was not as interested in the tour as the rest of us! I would recommend this tour to anyone who visits Venice, as it is both fun and informative.
Cecilia was fabulous and so smart and fun and taught us so much about the markets history and food today in Venice.
