Great tour, You hear about how Venice was built, how it developed and what life is like living in Venice. Local guide. Headsets included which is great as the laneways are narrow and the group gets spread out. Worth doing the tour as well as Gondala rides are expensive 80 euro for 30mins so was great to have it included, and it means you don't need to worry about negotiating prices also however some have set prices of 80euro. Recommend this tour!

Nice little walk through the neighborhood with the guide giving some input about venice. The shared gondola ride afterwards is very nice and beats the price they charge you if you go on your own.
