Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

As far as I know the tours are daytime. Ours started at around 5pm. Google free walking tours to see which tours are scheduled, at what time they start and where they meet. Maybe you can turn up and join it. Good luck.

It's best to book your spot in advance that way you are guaranteed. You could chance showing up and hopefully they have open slots for your group however, if they are already a full group, they won't be able to fit you in.

Unfortunately you have to go through the site, they don’t usually take people that turn up on the day, we used the site and had no problems and even if it isn’t secure you don’t have to give any payment details as it’s free.
