Absolutely fantastic. Our guide Alessandro Trabucco was very informative and friendly. We learned lots about the history of Venice and the canal system. Great way to tour! We booked in advance and would recommend doing that as we didn't have to wait very long to get on our gondola.

We are a family of 5, and this tour was perfect!! We did not realize that a private guide would accompany us and give us a fabulous informational tour by gondola! My kids teens loved it!! This one was worth every penny!! Riding in a gorgeous gondola, having a great gondolier, and having a private guide!!! Just fabulous!! Our guide also gave us great suggestions and a map of places to go on our trip and restaurants to eat at after the tour was over!

I booked this gondola ride with a guide because I thought it would be more informative and enjoyable for my 13 year old daughter. We were not disappointed. Our guide was Sylvia who was great and very informative. It made all the difference to hear about the history whilst enjoying the gondola ride. My parents enjoyed it also. I would definitely recommend it and would love to do it again. Also our gondolier was called Stefan and was very friendly and knowledgeable. A must when in Venice! Excellent!

A true Bucket List experience!

5 Stars are not enough for this amazing experience. From the moment we arrived, we were offered the best customer service with timely suggestions for where to buy the best Espresso to what we should see in Venice.

Our guide, Sylvia, was a true delight and a Fount of Knowledge. Our Gondolier expertly managed the canals at a very appropriate pace. We could not be happier with our experience.

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.

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 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.
