Marco! Awesome tour guide & founder!
ALISA_T
, Jun 2019
Took this tour just to see Lido but was surprised to 1) see this more beautiful, relaxed, less crowded version of Venice, 2) learn about the architecture & history of Lido - past & present, 3) make new friends: Marco, who is the tour guide, founder and architect with the city who created this tour. Take this tour and support the locals while your at it! Max of 10 people so a very private group tour.

This was the coolest experience ever! We love the inner city and canals of Venice but it can get so crowded. This was a perfect way to catch our breath, get away from the congestion and see another part of Venice that most don't even know about. Marco our tour guide was so friendly, informative and flexible. He allowed us to stop and jump in the Adriatic Ocean! Not to mention the added bonus of getting some fun exercise in while we're eating all that pasta! Thank you Viators, thank you Marco!

We recently came back from a great trip to Venice, and one of the highlights was the bike tour. We try to take a bike tour in every city that we visit. We feel like it gives us a whole different perspective on the new city, and at the same time getting a bit of exercise. We enjoyed the biking very good quality bikes, and our tour guide gave us some useful information along the way. Our kids ages 17 and 11 enjoyed it very much as well.

Marco, our knowledgeable guide, met us at the entrance to the People Mover with new bikes and then we took the ferry to Lido where we cycled at a comfortable pace around the island. We stopped frequently at various sites where the explanations were enhanced by pictures, maps and videos. We had a great time.

I love taking bike tours when I visit cities, and this tour did not disappoint. It was only me and 3 other people, besides the tour guide, so the tour felt very intimate. It was also super relaxing! This was the first thing I had scheduled upon my arrival to Venice, and it was a great way to relax from all of my traveling I know...sounds counter-intuitive.

It was everything we expected. Marco, our guide was easy to get a hold of, he tailored the tour to suit us as we were the only two people on it. I believe he even gave us a longer tour, stopping to explain everything as we went.

Great day out - refreshing to escape the bustle of Venice for a few hours and see 'the other side' of the Lagoon. Very well run, good commentary and easy pace. Recommended.

When the hustle, and crowds, and even more crowds finally get to you in Venice then this is the excursion for you. During our last visit to Venice we did not have enough time to visit Lido but this time it was on our Must do list. We stumbled upon this excursion on Viator. Knowing how much we enjoyed ourselves on our bike tour of the Appian Way we said this was the tour for us. And we had a great time. We met at Tronchetto which is easy to get to from almost anywhere. Our guide and owner Marco arrived on time with the bikes and we boarded the ferry to Lido. The ferry ride is not included in the cost of the tour but it was covered by our Venice Unica City Pass. The ferry ride to Lido gave us spectacular and unencumbered views of the water side of St. Marks Square, the Doges Palace and other great scenery. The bike ride itself was a great way to see a lot of the island and get a bit exercise a bit at the same time. We are both 50 and not exactly fit but we had no trouble keeping up with Marcos moderate place. We stopped many times along the way as Marco explained certain points of interest and the sustainability of the lagoon and eco-system. I think the lecture could use some work but for a start-up company the tour was very good. The entire route was 16 km and lasted about 4.5 hours. Well worth the money! Well done Marco and all the best.

9 of us went on this bike tour the day after my 60th birthday. We had spend a fantastic week-end in Venice and planned to end our trip with this tour. We got off the people carrier and were met by Marco and his dad with a van and bikes. Marko was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable throughout our 5 hour trip. We stopped often and Marko gave us interesting information about the island and it's landmarks. The ride was easy and great fun. So good to cycle along the Lido Island and see a different side to Venice. I would thoroughly recommend this tour. Thank you so much

This was a great tour. Going out to Lido was a wonderful way to get away from the masses of tourists on San Marco island and see a very beautiful part of Venice that many don't get to see. Our guide was informative and Lido Island is full of wonderful little treasures and interesting facts. If we go back to Venice we would seriously consider staying on Lido Island over other locations. The tour was wonderful value for money.
