Very knowledgeable guide ( sorry can’t remember his name ) Learnt a great deal about Venice very informative. Only negative was long wait for gondola ride.
The tour guide is nice and helpful. We’re very enjoying gondola. Nice walking tour. The meeting is clear and easy.
Unfortunately Venice was experiencing the coldest, wettest month of May in almost 70 years when we visited. In spite of the weather, our guide Andrea did his best to keep our walking tour in as many covered areas as he could find. Andrea was cheerful, knowledgeable and passionate about his home city and tried to make the tour as pleasant as possible. By the end of the tour we were cold and soaked, and gratefully we were able to reschedule our gondola ride for the next day when the sun came out. If it hadn't been for the rain it would have been perfect, but the weather was out of everyone's control. I definitely recommend this tour.
This was a great tour to get to know Venice and to experience a Gondola Ride. Julia was a wonderful guide and showed many things that we wouldn't have seen on our own. We highly recommend this tour for a great overview of Venice
Really nice walking tour of the not so popular sites in Venice. Gondola ride was amazing! They even let us store our stroller on the boat.
Iffy was an awesome tour guide! A native of Venice, she had a lot of detailed information to tell us about Venice (things I had NO idea about like how they block of canals to clean buildings, etc.!). The walking tour was great - I wish there had been more (but it was long enough... I would have loved to see a second tour with more places to visit). We get to see a lot of "nooks and crannies" though! The gondola ride was cool! Our gondolier did not talk throughout the ride so if you are looking for a "guided" ride, this is not it But we did go quite a way through canals and out (briefly) in to the sea. It was a great way to see the city!
Interesting as the tour was in terms of history I didn’t expect a walk in a circle around narrow streets and thought we’d see more major attractions. There were 35 on the trip - too many and if at the back you couldn’t hear the guide as her microphone was out of range. Goldola was good but we did the singing!!
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!
