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.
Great guide! Loved seeing the back streets of Venice, the Real Venice!

The walking tour was very informative. Some gondola drivers seem to have more fun than ours. Didn't acnowledge us the whole trip.... It was a pleasant ride nonetheless.
Lovely walking tour enabling you to get your besrings and some interesting facts. Gondola ride was amazing. Do quiet on the side canals and then the hussle and bussel of the grand canal.
The guide was great and had a lovely relaxed manner. We used headphones and she gave the talk using a microphone. This made it easy to hear the info. It was very hot walking around Venice but the sights were wonderful. There was unfortunately a long wait in the hot, summer sun for the gondola ride and this took some of the magic away from the trip. However, all in all, it was a worthwhile trip@
It was a great experience. The tour guide is knowledgeable and nice.
We were impressed by how informative this tour was. We got to see some things we wouldn't have otherwise, and learned some really interesting history about the founding of Florence and what it was like to live in Medieval and Reniassance Florence. It was nice that they broke up everyone into three smaller groups of 20, so we could all get a good idea of what was going on. The gondola ride at the end was a nice touch!
Nice way to see some nooks and crannies off the beaten path in Venice.
We really loved this tour! Our tour guide, Francesca, was very knowledgeable and funny. She was non-stop talking the whole 90 minute walk! While we did not walk through San Marco Piazza, we walked through some very nice back streets and got to see some very charming and interesting sights. This was the real Venice, in my opinion.
The gondola ride was a nice way to end our tour, just leisurely riding through the canals and admiring the expert paddling of our gondolier. We'd definitely recommend this tour!
The trip was wonderful! Our guides were very knowledgeable and pleasant. The sites were marvelous, especially touring the inside of the Colosseum and St. Peter's Basilica. The best thing is that you really do Skip the Long Lines with Viator. Others had to wait in extreme heat for many, long hours. Go Viator!!!

We thought this tour was great. The walking portion of the tour was fantastic. Our guide took us through many areas that we would never have gone. It was like a different city than the one we had spent the previous 2 days in! He had visual aides and illustrations to help educate us on the details of Venice, and he had in depth knowledge of both historical and modern Venice. The gondola ride was fun, if a bit touristy- the gondoliers were having a good time ribbing each other about their various rides and their abilities.
Fantastic! We loved Venice! Our tour guide was Stephano and he was just wonderful.
Absolutely fantastic the tour guide person was spot on, so many information , such a lovely person love it love it love it , i will use viator definitely
Great tour! I learned a few things on this tour that I would not have known had I just wandered. Aside from the fact that it was raining the entire time we were on the gondola, it was a good experience.
We walked around the main area's around San Marco Piazza and discovered some lovely sights that we would never have found on our own. The Bovolo staircase is a sight to be seen. Our guide Francesca was wonderful. I had her as a guide on a different tour 2 years ago - she is amazing and very knowledgeable. I love her dry humour. The Gondola Ride was everything you would want, except he didn't sing. Oh well we sang instead. All in all a wonderful tour.
Definately a tour for the persons who have limited time in Venice. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgable and went to all lengths to explain the history of Venice. His passion was obvious and we came away with a much clearer understanding of such a beautiful place.Gondola ride, impressive.
Definitely recommended, the walking tour was great and our guide so passionate full of information and
really entertaining, I wouldn't try to navigate the streets of Venice on your own trust me! . And you definitely can't visit Venice without doing a Gondola ride so I thoroughly recommend this tour.
The walking tour was excellent and very informative as was the gondola ride the only problem that day was the weather it was very heavy rain which was most unfortunate
Great tour and tour guide. Lots of useful information about the histru of venice and some places you would never find when just strolling through the streets.
This tour is very informative about Venice and its history. It does not vist St. Marks or th eDoges Palace, but is a good addition to those tours.
Guide was excellent. Tour was quite interesting - not your usual sights which was good. We were pleased .
