We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour and gondola ride. Our guide, Cristina, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and we were shown areas of Venice that we would not have otherwise seen. The guide spoke in English and in Spanish, for the benefit of some guests on the tour who were not English speakers (which is completely reasonable as why should the expectation be that everyone can speak English? How many of us can speak Italian fluently even though we're in Venice???) and the gondola ride was relaxing and seemed authentic and not overly touristy. The only minor thing was that we weren't taken to St. Mark's Square, which we had expected would have been a main feature of the tour, but as we found the square ourselves later on in our stay, this was not a problem.
Our guide was very informative and answered any questions we had.
This tour was the best way to explore and see all the famous landmarks and get to know the city in depth. Our tour guide was really humorous which made the tour more enjoyable! I'd recommend this tour to anyone who's going to Venice!
Meeting Place very convenient. Good quality Audio equipment. Guide very personable and information well delivered. Overall very well organised. Gondola ride good value for money.
Excellent and very knowledgeable guide and well worth the money,
Lovely guide with a lot of knowledge about the history of Venice. It was great to see the less touristy parts of the city. I was able to see many hidden gems I otherwise would not have known about had it not been for the tour. The Gondola ride was an amazing experience!
Interesting all the back streets and 35 minute gondolier ride great !
Our guide was very good with really good and knowledgeable information about San Marco
Fantastic ! amazing ! loved every part of the tour and gondola ride . The tour guide was great very knowledgeable. Thank you
Ah! Venice. Our tour guide was so smart and exciting. Personable and informative. Answered great questions and the ride was amazing at sunset. Thank you for the great tour and I am more intelligent as a result.
This was great, lots of little areas to look at and gondola ride great, but would have been nice not to be put with others but enjoy as a family unit...
The tour was excellent! Our guide was elequent, knowledgeable and informative. We saw and learnt about parts of Venice which we otherwise would not have known about. The Gondola ride was lots of fun.
Brilliant tour and well worth the money.
Guide was excellent, clearly knew a lot of history and stuff about the city. Great English.
Gondola ride was amazing through the streets/canals of Venice. Definitely recommend booking in advance as the gondolas were advertised as £80 each on its own!
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.
