Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride
The tour is composed of two parts and allows you to discover the lesser-known places of Venice and to try a means of transport found only in the city!
Starting with a walking tour of the city, you will explore the area around Piazza San Marco and Rialto Bridge. Learn about the top attractions and stop for photos in front of Venice's cultural centerpieces such as Teatro la Fenice, Scala del Bovolo and Rialto Bridge.
Your guide will determine the exact itinerary, depending on the day.
After your walking tour get ready to hop aboard a classic gondola boat (for up to 6 people) and enjoy a 35-minute ride through the famous Grand Canal (Salute area) as well as the smaller canals around the neighborhood of Fenice. As you glide along the Grand Canal, marvel at the glamorous bank-side palaces and churches and hear tales about how it became Venice's most important thoroughfare. The gondola ride ends by disembarking at Vallaresso Station in Dogana.

This tour is highly recommended. We had an awesome guide who showed us Venice- away from the crowds - the parts of Venice where the locals go Gondola ride was wonderful!
First, the local tourist office was not very friendly nor helpful. Told us to wait outside in the rain for the guide. The walking tour only went around the piazza de Campo San Luca through the alleys.The gondola ride with six people and in the evening was not very attractive, ciuldn't see much.A different guide took us there and she gave very little instructions where to go to wait for the boats.After the ride, she disappeared and didn't help anyone to get back to the office or home.The entire operation appeared as though they didn't care.I don't recommend this tour.
Our guide was very informative and spoke excellent English. The only disappointment we have is that we did not see (even from the outside) St Mark's Basilica nor the Doges palaces both of which were supposed to be included in our tour.
Our tour guide was fantastic, very informative and engaging. It was lovely to explore more of the unique beauty of Venice, as it was our first time, and be able to learn some of the history. We also loved the gondola ride, it's got to be done at least once, and was a fun, iconic way of ending the afternoon. Thank you for such a great experience.
Great tour through the streets of Venice. Informative guide and a great gondola ride. Great way to start learning about the city of Venice.
The guide was excellent. Gave us good history. The Gonfola was the only atttraction that was poorly managed and felt like it was rush,too many people and it would have been better to get the ride yourself. Only disappointment so far.
Very fun and informational!
