This was really interesting. It was the best way to relax and enjoy a most informative tour of the canals of Venice and the grand history. We really enjoyed the conversation and the expertise of our Gondolier.

The gondolier was excellent. He wasn't much of a talker, but that's what the guide was for. the gondolier's maneuvering in the canals was amazing. We were surprised by a rain storm and he covered us with a tarp he had and got out of the rain. It never stopped however so we had to make a hasty exit. The tour guide was very expressive, explanatory and helpful. I'm so glad we booked the gondola trip with the tour guide in order to find out all the details along the canal.

We pre-booked the gondola trip before we got to Venice, together with an English speaking guide. The ride was very relaxing and took us around the 'back streets' as well as the main area tourist area's which was lovely, and the guide was very informative. Would recommend.

Disappointed not to go under the Rialto Bridge; gondola ride only 40 minutes, not an hour (gondolier didn't have correct uniform). Otherwise the guide, Massimo, was absolutely excellent! The tour helped to make our trip to Venice a wonderful experience; just a shame it was cut short!

The only down fall on this trip was the rain :! Not anyone's fault! Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable. She gave us a lot of information but was not overwhelming. We were able to enjoy our trip and have extra information. It was great and we will recommend this tour!!!!

We were very impressed with the guide he was very knowledgable. We felt the Gondola ride was worth the extra cost as it was more informative and meaningful. Without it you're just floating around. We would recommend this tour despite the expense. After all - you are only here once!

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

THIS TOUR WAS OK, We were surprised that the Gondola driver was not the tour guide as we had hoped for a private boat but instead had a woman on our boat telling us about
Venice.
This was a surprised as we wanted a private GONDOLA RIDE.!!!

1 star rating: I do not recommend this
June 2014

Very disappointed, directions and area very confusing. Late to tour and even though "Private" they wouldn't take us. Price was very high compared to other Gondola tours at Venice
