Milo helped my husband find our hotel to drop our luggage we just arrived and he helped my husband carry the luggage too!
Highly recommend him for his kindness
Dodges is a gorgeous Palace
Gondola ride is crowded with 6 people
This is a combo of 3 tours. For the first 2 tours, we had Gina, a native Venetian, as our tour guide. She was excellent! We lucked out with a smaller group than they normally run so she was more accessible. The Doge's Palace is interesting and the walking tour took us primarily in the San Marco neighborhood. Gina was able to provide insights and great information. If there's any negative, it was that it felt a bit rushed going from one tour to the next - not enough time for the restroom.
For the gondola ride no more guides, be aware that each gondola takes 6 people and there's A LOT of people going on the gondolas! They take the bigger groups first so if you're travelling solo or as a couple, you could be a filler for the group gondola and you can forget about the great seat. If you can wait until there are no more big groups, you'll have a better chance of getting the great seat. The ride itself was really relaxing and enjoyable. Pretty quiet and no singing though the gondoliers were talking to one another as we passed them.
So, great experience!
This tour was beyond any words to describe the guide was funny and well informed of local history
The doges palace was beautiful inside and out a fascinating walking tour and romantic gondola ride stopping near the San Marco vaparetto point and what better place than to enjoy a bottle of prosecco
We were in Venice in sept 2015. The tour were well organized. Our tour guide was amazing, she was born there and speaks fluently Spanish and English. All her comments about the history and the building details were amazing. The complete tour Doge's palace, The Walking Tour and the Gondola Ride were incredible!! I highly recommended.
Gondola ride as expected but better than expected also, Doges palace just incredible and some nice info on Venice itself etc.
A great tour. Guide was very good with just the right mix, Palace, walk through unusual Venive and Gondola Ride. Great value against booking when you are there being a lot more expensive.
Took a little while to adjust the sound equipment and reception was not particularly good around Venice but guide Veronica very knowledgeable. Gondola ride was a lot longer than expected around the canals.
However retire the guide before your clientele falls.
Very thorough and interesting
Amazing-- terrific guide.
