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.

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.
If you want to learn about Venice and the Gran Canal area then book this trip, our guide Virginia was superb with her information regarding the way Venice and the buildings has developed through the ages and the history of how trade had developed and the importance of the canal system the Venetians.
Our Gondolier smoothly navigated us through the traffic on the Grand Canal and the lesser waterways that were full of Vibrance and colour, the hour passed so quickly we were back at the dock before we knew it, an experience that will last long in the memory!
This gondola ride was at the top of my wife's bucket list. Alex T. our tour guide did not disappoint. He arrived early and was a very engaging warm and passionate about his knowledge and love of Venice and the outside world. Was a great start to our holiday. Thanks Alex.
This was one of the highlights of our first trip to Venice. My son who is 8 talked about how much fun it was and was the best part of all the sightseeing that we did in Venice. We really enjoyed the ride and the gentleman who gave us the private tour was really good. We enjoyed the close up look of so many bridges and the canals with a wonderful history lesson of Venice. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. Was well worth the money spent.
This tour was so much more than I expected.
