Waking up early was definitely worth it! Enjoyed both the walking tour and the gondola ride. Plenty of photo ops too! I just wish i had more time in Venice so i could have done the other tours as well.
In Venice, you can get around one of two ways: either by boat or on foot. I'd recommend a walking tour on your first day in the city to help get oriented and familiar with certain landmarks you'll surely want to visit, as well as a few local tips (like the signs pointing to those key landmarks). Our guide was very knowledgeable.And of course, the gondola ride. No visit to Venice would be complete without one. The nice part here is the ride is scheduled and paid for ahead of time, so no worries about haggling or surprises at the cost.This tour was definitely worthwhile, but again - do this on your first full day there. If you wait, it will lose some of its value.
Typical tour with headsets and too many people in each tour. The guide was great and wish we would have done it our first day instead because we already spent a day exploring on our own so it wasnt as helpful but thats our fault.
It seemed very unorganised from the start they were not there at 10 to 9 in the morning like we were told to be. No tests done on the earpieces just said something and started walking mine wasnt working so I didn't know we should move. Goldona ride was good but getting there and on was a mess
Plus: San Marco square was completely flooded due to high tide, but guides waited for us to show up and told us come back in the afternoon when the water receded.
Minuses: Tour guide was mediocre and not that interesting to listen to. Gondola ride was nice, but there was no commentary, as per the tour description.
Not really worth the price.
