Excellent tour! Tina is a fantastic guide. Not only is she knowledgeable about wine, but she has a magnetic personality and a passion for her job, her city, and the Chianti region. When my father asked her questions about the grapes, she responded with enthusiasm and an impressive depth of knowledge
Amazing, the guide was so polite and very kind with my fathers who was the only on the group Spanish speakers . Totally advisable!
Because the tour guide knew all about the history of venice and she told us about the political personage of your lovely lagoon. And the local customs n the local drink being the aspro drink. Which I have to say is lovely so much so that I brought a bottle at duty free to take home with me. Thankyou
Tour guide was great the gondola ride was horrible. So 5 stars for the tour guide and 1 or 'fewer' for the gondola ride. The ride was like herding cattle into boat and down the canal as quickly and rudely as possible...not a good experience

The tour was spectacular! Olivia was fantastic, engaged us and loves what she does! Her tour of Florence was sooooo good! The cooking was way above our expectations with a beautiful setting!!! Olivia, Marliee, the staff and Carmillia were fabulous!!! Food was awesome and memories for life!!!
My boyfriend and I were only in Venice for a few days and wanted to get the most out of the experience! We had this tour set for the second day in the afternoon. By the time it came we thought we had already seen all Venice had to offer, that they would take us to the major tourist attractions. They didn't! They took us around where we would have never been able to find on our own and we learned many great things about this town. We ended with the Gondola ride, it lasted for about 20-25 minutes. We would recommend this tour if you are in Venice
Well worth the money. The guide Fredirika was knowledgeable and dealt with questions and harnessing the group in a professional manner. The office staff were equally professional in the way that they dealt with anything that was thrown at them. We were so impressed that we booked another trip to Murano, Burano and Torcinello. Nothing to be faulted. I would definitely use this company again when in Venice.
I do recommend trying the Gondola Ride. It was an awesome experience. The guide was great and had a good sense of humor and a way with telling the history of Venice. Enjoyed the experience.
Excellent. On the walking tour we were shown so many things that we had been walking past and never realised. How and why the city was built, the early water supply, the building styles how the city is coping with rising water levels. The Gondola ride was the icing on the cake.
The tour guide, Andreas, was a gem and fountain of knowledge about Venice. He was also very entertaining and provided info on the current reality of Venice. THe tour takes you to some of the lesser known parts of Venice, which makes you really glad you got to see some venetian jewels outside the usual touristic sites. The gondola ride is worth the trip as an experience, but given the crowded situation of the canals is far from peaceful or romantic. Highly recommended tour
This is not a tour around the main hot spots of Venice. It is back street, slow pace and very informative on the local way of life. We loved it! The gondola ride was a lovely way to complete the tour. Book it and enjoy .....
Amazing tour, guide was very knowledgeable well organised polite friendly and made the tour interesting with her knowledge. Take a bottle of water with you at all times. Gondola ride great.
Great tour - and the gondola ride was lovely. Not too packed at all. Lots of interesting stories. Felt like an authentic experience.
The guided tour was very full of greatly appreciated information. The gondola ride lasted for around 35 mins. Our gondolier also gave us another insight to the canals of Venice and the outstanding buildings.
We had a really good guide for the walking portion, I'm so sorry I don't recall his name.
He was so knowledgeable about all sorts of aspects of Venice, and we really enjoyed seeing parts of Venice we would never have found by ourselves.
The gondola ride was just heavenly and relaxing, after standing and walking on the hot streets, and such a treat!
A tour well worth taking!!
Great value for money. Our guide Marco is a Venetian so he had a wealth of knowledge and we also loved his dark sense of humour. Gondola ride was fantastic, didn't matter that we shared with 4 other people- loved every minute. Highly recommended!
Our guide GiGi Was great! We requested him on this tour because he was so good the previous day. His knowledge of the Vatican, history, paintings, Sistine chapel was great!!
