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!

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.

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.

The wait for the gondola ride at the end was very long especially after doing the other two activities first. We had to wait for nearly an hour for our ride. Priority should have been given to those who had done the other two activities prior.

The tour guide was exceptional


4 star rating: Recommended October 2016

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.
