Visited Venice alone, and this was a perfect way for me to go on a gondola ride. The ride was the perfect time at night where the sun is going down and you can experience both a day and night ride. The walking tour was great as well. Our guide brought us to a lot of interesting spots that I know I would not have found on a regular tour.
The trip was brilliant, the hotel was excellent the only down side is you needed a boat to get to the city center and back which was free from the hotel. However, if the weather is cold and it was freezing some days the boat only runs once per hour and the waiting area has no cover. Apart from that it was all we expected and very beautiful. The Gondola ride was great, but a little scary as it was night and we were only a few inched from the water line and the waves were quite big, I was at the front and it was a great view of the city, you must do it!
The tour guide was very knowledgeable so the tour was very interesting. The gondola ride was excellent. Good value for money.
Very good specially because it shows you the normal venice.
Loved how the tour guide gave us a feel for how it is to live in modern day Venice, while giving history as well. Night Gondola ride was fun.
This Venice tour was excellent. We had to take the public transit water bus from Murano and change to another one at San Marco which put us directly at the Academia stop for the tour. The guide was very knowledgable about the city, history, and significance of various sights and cultural practices. He actually took us on a walking tour of the less well known sites and we were able to see artisans [Gondola craftsmen] at work. The highlight was the Gondola ride, though it is clearly a practice retained just for the tourist industry. Venice is a must see overall. Great food, sights, and people.
This was a great tour taking us to the other side of the river and explaining some of the lesser known things about Venice
The tour a was great! had a fabulous guide who was very funny and knew the history of Venice. We seemed to have walked both sides of the Grand Canal but it did not feels like. There was a fabulous sunset, the weather was great! The gondola ride was at the end of the walking tour and just in time when we getting a tired. I wished the gondolier gave us a history of the cancel but didn't speak English as all. Overall the tour was great and I would highly recommend it!!
This tour was great, saw a side of Venice that we would not have seen, especially from the Gondola. Guide very informative. Great evening!!
The best tour for the trip! We love the small group and the nice morning walk around the tour. Tour guide was excellent.
This tour was absolutely wonderful! Mirco was informative and gave us so much information that helped me appreciate Venice and the Venetians way of life. I would recommend this tour to everyone. It is an enjoyable walk, but wear sensible walking shoes....of course. The gondola ride was a truly amazing experience and so relaxing at night. Thank you Viator for making this tour available! Thank you Mirco!
This was a very informative tour with some good highlights of Venice. The sunset was a great experience which makes the night tour a must. The gondola ride was quiet and relaxing.
Excellent trip to the hidden away places. The evening trip was perfect with less crowds
Interesting tour from and excellent guide that covered some less well know area's of 'hidden' Venice, rather than the main attractions and sights. The Gondola ride was tranquil and pleasant. Don't expect the gondolier to say much in the way of a commentary though! Ours didn't.
We did this tour in the morning - a nice time - not too crowded with people and easier to see the sites. This is a wonderful way to see and wander through some of the streets (calles and fondements) of Venice and learn some history at the same time. This tour walked us through the neighbourhoods of Dorsoduro and San Polo followed by a relaxing Gondola ride through the smaller canals of San Marco. Our walking guide, Francesca (with the blonde, longer hair), was quite sweet and funny with an extensive knowledge of the area. I recommend this tour and Francesca.
The tour was cancelled due to poor weather. However, I commend the prompt and efficient service of the tour guide and Viator back office in arranging the refund. Thank you.
Very enjoyable tour. The tour guide was very passionate and knowledgeable and the gondola ride was a great way to finish the tour.
We loved this tour! We mostly enjoyed the back streets part of the tour with information we did not know before. We also enjoyed the genuine friendly nature of our guide.
We really enjoyed the tour. We had a short time in Venice, but got a very good overview, and got to take a gondola ride Our guide was very knowledgeable.
The tour was excellent,we couldnt expect anything better from start to finish. It was great to have a such a knowledgeable tour guide (lavina) and even better since she was from the area which made her very passionate about everything she spoke about. Recommend this tour to everyone going to florenc
This was the first of 4 tours I booked for our trip. I have to say that It was very informative and interesting. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered any and all questions he was asked. The group was just the right size and the pace of the tour was excellent. The gondola ride at the end was just the topping on the cake. I would highly recommend this tour as you get to see parts of Venice that you might miss on your own.
