This is a must, you cannot go to Venice and not take a gondola ride. It is very crowded with all the gondolas. I would recommending booking this tour just for the skip the line visit to St Mark's Basilica, the tour guide was very good and provided us with lots of information. Good value for the money.

Our guide was there on time and ensured we all got on board. Very organized. The experience everyone wants when in Venice and it was everything we imagined. Loved it!

Fantastic time. Even though it was raining the tour guide took the time to get us situated with our Gondola ride and afterward a small group tour of St Marks church. Well done and would recommend it

Was a bit disappointed with the gondola ride. Our boatman didn't talk to us at all or sing as the other boatmen were doing.... In fact he spent the entire journey talking to the other boatmen. It would have been nice if he paid us a little attention.
The tour to St Marks Basilica was good and quite informative. The quality of the headphones were a bit sketchy though.

First it was hard to find the location to start the tour. There were so many tours and the name they had on their sign did not say what company or gondola and St. marks so we spent over 45 minutes looking for the right one. Also the Gondola man was in a bad mood. He said it was the new moon and the tides were high and it was harder to steer the boat.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2016

The Gondola ride was good

The gondola section of the tour was well worth it. The tour guide turned up 40 mins later without an apology and when she started the tour round the basilica we couldn and #39;t hear her very well and she was very boring! Talked too much about history and not enough about what we could see and the basilica

Very disappointed. Tour guide was late showing up for gondola ride. Was a very boring ride taking us through the ugly part of Venice. The st marks tour even worse. Had to wait for additional transmitters then had to wait for current tour guide to be done to start ours. Couldn't understand anything she said. Was extremely boring.. Wish I had just spent the 80 euros on a gondola ride
