Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride

Venice, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

I recently visited Venice with my family. What a beautiful and exciting city! I must say that we were very disappointed with the afternoon walking tour and gondola ride led by Turive. We'd had excellent tours in Rome and Florence with other companies. The size of those groups was smaller so you could be in fairly close proximity to the guide. The challenge in Venice is that you are often walking single file or in pairs down the narrow streets, so with the large group we were in we were often quite far from the guide. She would talk about what she could see and you'd have no idea what she was talking about because you weren't near it. Also, the headsets either were defective or don't work in these narrow spaces with walls all around. Again, we were well behind the guide. I think I missed hearing at least 50% of what the guide said on the tour, and she seemed oblivious to this problem.
At the end of the tour we had a gondola ride. While it was fun to ride in the gondola, our gondolier was not at all personable and spent most of the time talking to the other gondoliers either passing by or in front of us. As opposed to our other tours, the folks involved didn't seem to care whether or not we had a good experience. All in all, not worth the money. I wouldn't recommend this company.

My Review

Fun, well done, thoroughly planned well. Went with my three adult children and my wife, and it was a highlight of our trip. The guide, Jacabo, was excellent. Our family is still talking about the views of Tuscany and the lunch/ visit to the vineyard. Bravo!

3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Despite "skipping the lines" there were still considerable wait in line times before each; the guides were good but still disappointing as they were not fully engaged with the group. The museums were worth visiting, but our family rated the experience as OK- fair

Very enthusiastic, engaging, and knowledgeable guide who made the experience highly educational and enjoyable. Her tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Even some of our family who thought they might be bored with art history truly enjoyed the tour.
