Venice Tour Including Gondola Ride

Venice, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

I was hoping the walking tour would take me to more popular spots (we were taken to back streets most of the time and didn't see much of interest. However, the guide did a good job explaining the everyday life of a Venetian). The gondola ride was barely a night ride. We left when there was daylight and lingered in one spot waiting for street lights to come on. As soon as they came on we were taken to our final stop to get off. This was hardly a night tour. If I had to do it all over again, I would have chosen a more desirable route and booked the ride directly at one of the many gondola stops throughout the city. This way I could ensure a night ride. I would also not do a group ride. Our tour was for 6 people (all women except my husband). They put my husband at the tip of the gondola so we didn't even sit next to each other. I noticed other gondolas also had the male at the tip of the gondola too. I assume to help keep the gondola in balance. Next time I would book a private ride.

My Review

This was way better than using a bus, but I wish I had used the metro more. The metro was faster and more efficient. I think you should do this at least one day to get a sense for where the popular sites are located, but use the metro! This bus doesn't stop in front of most of the sites you want to visit anyway, you end up walking a lot, so you may as well use the metro!
