The experience was one to remember.
A true Bucket List experience!
5 Stars are not enough for this amazing experience. From the moment we arrived, we were offered the best customer service with timely suggestions for where to buy the best Espresso to what we should see in Venice.
Our guide, Sylvia, was a true delight and a Fount of Knowledge. Our Gondolier expertly managed the canals at a very appropriate pace. We could not be happier with our experience.
Tour guide was excellent and made the experience so much more than had I been alone. Without a guide, you'd miss too many subtle pieces of history and information, detracting from the visit. As usual, Viator/City Wonder Tours exceeded my expectations!
This tour was great! Our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. He regaled our group with tales about old Venice, as well as what it's like to live in modern Venice. The prosecco flowed as we made our way around the beautiful city. I highly recommend you take this tour- hopefully you end up on 'Il Sultana'!

A must. Great tour to points of interest you probably would not have found. Guide was very interesting and entertaining. Had audio equipment so could follow easily, taken around in small groups
Was cheaper to book in advance and simple to check in when got to meeting point.Gondola ride was amazing, go together as a group then board gondola in groups of six. Perfect few hours.

Excellent tour. Our guide was great. Learned a lot.
Excellent tour, the guides are well informed and passionate about the city and its history. Great value for money my wife and I enjoyed it immensely.
Excellent tour. Thoroughly enjoyed both the walking tour and the boat ride. Guides were very informative and you did not feel rushed
great tour guide. very friendly and knowledgeable. easy to approach and ask questions
Great times. Our walking tour guide was Marina and she did a fantastic job teaching us about the city and explaining what we were seeing. She told us about the interesting things that go on in the city occasionally like when it floods and how people deal with it. She pointed out interesting aspects of the historical sites that would not be visible otherwise. For instance, there were mosaics above the St. Mark's Basilica which were created in different centuries and had a very different style. The boat tour was a lot of fun because it really did take us everywhere in the city that can be reached by a small boat. It lasted about 40 minutes and we went all the way around the outside of the city to see the other islands of Venice and we went through the Grand Canal to see the heart of the city from the perspective of the water. Francesco was a great tour guide and he pointed out interesting details like the 7-star hotel where George Clooney got married. Apparently the two biggest enemies to Venice were Napoleon and George Clooney.
We got to see areas that would not have normally been available. Our guide was knowledgeable and explained what we were seeing for the entire tour. he walking tour was very good, too. We were on the water for most of the 4 hours - Venice is an incredible city and this tour was well worth it. There were only 5 of us on the boat so we had plenty of room to move around and get pictures.
This was an amazing experience especially at sunset - 6:30 pm in September. Only downfall is you have 4 gondola's together with the singer/accordian on one of the boats. Also 6 people to a boat so depending on what seat you end up affects your view. Worth it though as the most beautiful ride through canel.
Doing what: Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade

Fantastic! Loved our guide and it was a wonderful way to see more of Venice and learn about Venice. We highly recommend this tour!!!
A very enjoyable experience moving about the Northern canals and lagoon that you otherwise probably wouldn't see. It's a really different way to experience Venice.
Francesca and Valentina, who were instructing me, were slightly and understandably delayed getting to the meeting point, and I was able to easily make contact with the organisation to find out what was happening, so no need to have worries on that score.
