We enjoyed this tour very much. The guide loves and knows his city very well.
Absolutely fab ~ worth every penny............ our young male guide, so sorry do not recall his name was Italian charm itself, knowledgeable and very courteous. The gondolier ride on the Grand Canal absolutely stunning, like drifting thru an old painting. For any trip it is a must!!
The walking tour was very interesting and was around an area of Venice that we had not previously seen. The gondola ride was lovely but I'm not sure that a ride in daylight would not have been better. The whole package was good value and well organised.
Excellent tour with an excellent guide. The only change I would make is to upgrade to a private gondola ride at the end.
This was a lovely tour by a local woman. She appeared to be well informed and the tour took us into areas that tourists would not normally go to, explaining the points of architecture interest, way of life, history, etc. The gondola ride was very good and lasted approx 30-40 minutes including the Grand Canal and narrower canals. This made the tour very good value for money as we were quoted at least 80 euros by another gondolier. Recomended.
Experienced tour guide, she knew every corner in Venice. The gondola ride is nice at night.
It would be very helpful to provide map and instruction how to get to the meeting place.
Back to basics in Venice !!
Awesome for a night tour !!
Very nice tour. Well informed local guide with excellent English leading a group through some peaceful back-streets and providing interesting stories and historical background. Followed by a nice gondola ride in the evening light. Nice change of pace from the bustle around St Marks. Well worth doing if you've already got the "big" stuff (St Marks, Doges Palace etc) covered in other tours.
The tour itself was excellent. However, the tour guide that we had was not considerate of the fact that I had difficulty keeping up with the tour. I one occasion, he walk pass the gondola ride to show the tour some sights approximately a kilometer away and then returned. He could have notified me, if no one else, that the Gondola Ride was at a certain location but that he had more to show and would return. It would have given me the choice of continuing the 2 hour walk or stopping short after about 90 minutes into the walk. I, for one, would have be appreciative. He was, however, very knowledgeable about what he did show us.
The walking tour in Venice was excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Venice and our gondola ride was lovely. We would definitely recommend this tour!
Awesome. Truly knowledgable guide. However, it's pity that we didn't even have a free bottle of water. It was +36 degrees and with 1.5 hours of continuious walking was a bit harsh.
A great way to see areas of Venice one might not see without a guide. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very pleasant, and the gondola right was wonderful.
Our guide was a resident of Venice and was very knowledgeable of the area we toured. The tour lasted about 1-1/2 hours with a 45 minute gondola ride. We opted to not share with others and loved every minute of it. The directions to the meeting point were very clear as well as information about where the gondolas would drop us off at the end of the tour. I learned so many things about Venice that I hadn't read about in guide books.
