Very enjoyable tour with a delightful guide certainly a highlight of our visit to Venice. I recommend highly!!
Did not do the tour.
The Viator company were fantastic as we missed our initial booking for this tour and phoned their call centre where they arranged for the same tour with an English speaking guide the next morning, pretty much hassle free. We missed the tour mainly because getting to your B and B Hotel in Venice is one of life's great challenges which took us 3 hours from parking off island to walking thru the lobby with cases in tow. The gondola ride however was an absolute highlight. With this ride we got to travel down the grand canal whilst many of the other rides are only in the skinny local canals. Alessandro Trabucco was an outstanding English speaking guide for three reasons. Firstly, his passion and love for this unique and fascinating city was infectious, secondly his insider knowledge of history and highlights was exceptional and finally he made our family of four feel so welcome especially our beautiful 14 year old daughter with special abilities. The trip went for 1 hour and was the best thing we did in Venice.
Fantastic, couldn't have been better. Fantastic guides.
Our guide, Alessandro, was wonderful! He was very knowledgeable about the history of the buildings along the canal as well as current events such as movies shot in Venice and where movie stars have stayed. I would definitely recommend this tour!
An excellent gondola ride through some of the less touristy parts of Venice. Our guide Monica was very entertaining , knowledgable and gave us an interesting background on Venitian lives we would not have gotten otherwise.

Very informative tour guide. The tour guide accompanied us on the gondola and pointed out all the main buildings etc along the way. Very enjoyable
It has been the greatest tour we've ever made. As there was regatta on the Grand Canal, it was closed for motor boats. So our Gondola has been the only boat on the Grand Canal in the area of the Rialto Bridge. It was perfect.
