This was a short walk around the area outside St Mark's Square; the guide gave a quirky commentary - how the rainwater was collected for drinking, the difference between Piazza and Campo, not an historical tour. The Gondola ride was fun, even experiencing a Gondola traffic jam!
Having been truly amazed when we arrived in Venice we were even more amazed by what we saw on this tour. It takes you to quieter streets with hidden gems and the tour guide was really good. After the walk we boarded a gondola and toured round a few quiet canals. A Venice experience not to be missed!
Our guide was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that our gondola ride was so nice. We had a rather long ride and shared the gondola with 2 other couples. What a nice finish to the tour.
This tour was great. Very informative, saw parts of Venice we wouldn't have seen if it wasn't for the tour. The lady that took the tour was very funny and her English was amazing. Definitely recommend going on a Gondola. We had an amazing time!
A great way to see the hidden gems Venice has to offer would highly recommend it, the gondola ride is only about 30 mins, but for us that was great as we only wanted a taster.

The hotel did not offer service to book tours but thanks to Viator we were able to book at a very short notice an enjoyable half-day tour of this beautiful place.
Amazing. Our guide was a delight! She went the extra mile to go to our hotel to tell give them a message from us. Really sweet!
The walking tour was very interesting. We absolutely LOVED the gondola ride. I found it less expensive to book your tour with the gondola ride than it would have been to book a gondola ride by itself.
2 days in venice max, you will see it all and then again on this tour
As usual Viator had provided precise joining instructions so no worry on that score! The guide was very knowledgeable and with radios to hear her commentary meant we didn't have to crowd round her to hear what she was saying. She gave us an invaluable tip - If you really want to see Venice get lost! We did (several times!) and she was right. The gondola trip rounded off a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
Our tour guide was great with a super sense of humour. He was very knowledgeable and gave us good insight to the city and the way it works. A great experience.
A gret way to learn about venice and its history. Our guide was very informative and took us through back streets and a lot of nook and crannies .... Really enjoyed it. Loved the gondola ride however our guide did not open his mouth once others were ver chatty to their guests
Really great tour walked to most of the highlighted sights with an informative guide. The gondola ride meant a short queue but worth the wait. No singing on our gondola but some of the more expensive ones did and you could hear them. Some not too pleasant on the ear. Not to be misse ;-)
