This tour was very informative regarding the background of Venice. I Think her name was Maria (I hate myself for not remembering, but I know she was from Milan and moved to Venice 15 yrs ago) I hope that helps. She took her time explaining all the different buildings and streets with no rush. She was also kind enough to explain in spanish for a couple from Mexico after explaining everything in English. She went above an beyond to give us the perfect experience. The Gondola ride was a little late because it was around 5:00 pm, which was cold already. The pictures came out good though, so that is a plus.
The walking tour was an interesting addition. Of course the gondola ride was, well, something that has to be done. It was enjoyable.
it was very interesting and informative. We were shown and told things we never would have found on our own. Our gondolier was great.
I booked this tour for my parents. Very easy to book, and to also change dates the week of the tour!
My parents said they had a wonderful experience that they'll always remember. Just what I had wanted for them...thank you Viator!!
I would recommend this excellent tour which was exceptional value for money. Our tour guide was charming and very informative. We saw places which where off the beaten track. The walking pace was gentle so suitable for the less energetic. The gondola ride was a great experience and a bargain to be included in the tour.
This was my 3rd Gondola Ride and it was great. The best part of the tour was the guide herself and how Knowledgable aand interesting she made the information about Venice.
Would recommend it to anyone - I have been to Venice probably 50 times and would take this tour again.
Fabulous tour of Venice behind the scenes! Even though Venice was pretty crowded, our tour covered places that were off the beaten path. We were able to experience parts of Venice we never would have known to visit and learned a bit of history that we probably never would have learned otherwise. Our tour guide, Andrew, was great. He was knowledgeable, a true lover of Venice and Venetian history/culture and his English was fantastic. The gondola ride was also fabulous. From the other reviews, I expected to be packed onto a gondola with 5 or 6 other people, and this was the case, but it wasn't too bad. We were on a gondola! In Venice! No complaints here.
This tour was exactly what we wanted. It took you off from the main attractions and showed you the original buildings and architecture of Venice. The guide was very knowledgable and the gondola ride was lovely. Perfect tour.
An ideal tour to learn about Venice and find your way bout. Our guide was a young lady who was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Venice. The gondola ride (group of 6) was a very enjoyable experience.
Exceeded expectations. Our guide was superb. And she was friendly and personable.
Excellent guide and well versed on the city. The walking tour combined with the gondola ride is an excellent value!
It was an exceptional walking tour with a knowledgeable and personable guide. The gondola ride on the Grande Canal was worth the price of the tour. We would highly recommend this tour anyone visiting Venice.
Tour was well organized and informative. Walking portion covered alot of ground and tour guide was very knowledgable. Gondola ride was a hoot. The tide was coming in so the ride got more exciting when we had to tilt a little to the left and right to get under the walking bridges. Canals were very trash free and the grand canal was very busy but safe. Saw alot of interesting landmarks.
Great tour with ? Mariann, a local with lots of history and flavour + the gondola ride ~40 minutes, charismatic gondolier who points out attractions. Done on our 1st day to Venice, a great start to a truly fascinating destination.
This tour was an amazing view of the city of Venice. Our particular tour guide was fabulous, and our gondolier was top rate.
The tour was very informative and provided me with insight into hidden areas of Venice.
This was so worth it, the guide was brilliant, passionate about Venice, very interesting and informative.
I saw and learnt loads, thoroughly worthwhile.
The gondola ride was the icing on the cake, magical,all expectations met and exceeded!
The guide we had was excellent. He was a happy and proud Italian showing us pictures from his book, telling us why things were happening in Venice, and talking to a couple for at least 30 minutes after our walking tour. He was so knowledgeable and happy to be taking questions as he was conducting the tour. Ken.
It was exceptional! The walking tour guide was very knowledgeable. Has a great sense of humor and threw few jokes here and there, and kept everyone interactive. The highlight of the walking tour guide is that everyone were given a little radio and ear phones so you can hear the tour guide as if he is next to you.
The Gondola was also exceptional the gondolier was for friendly and speaks English and at times will sing ... it was worth the money spent and the length of time only wish the gondola was longer. Otherwise, overall it was an exceptional trip. Will use Viator and recommend to all my friends and coworkers
We enjoyed our tour of Venice very much. The guide was excellent. We also loved our Gondola ride. It was awesome. We had a hard time finding the start of the tour even with a map. I think better directions could be given to get you to the starting point.
This walking tour is well worth the expense. The knowledge of our guide provided very interesting information about Venice. The Gondola Ride was better than expected and provided a unique view of Venice and the canals without the exorbitant cost for an individual gondola.
