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 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.

Excellent tour! Our guide, Alex, was very informative, enthusiastic, and friendly, and so was our gondolier, Andreas. Absolutely worth the price. They took us to canals away from the tourist crowds, and even in the shade! And we all got to have a go at driving. Thank you Alex for making this trip so special.

Our tour guide Alessandro and our gondolier Fabio were fabulous! Though it happened to be a very warm day we managed to see the beautiful highlights of the grand canal, the historic palaces and got to park on some shades in between to get us relief from the heat!. The gondola was beautiful the cadillac of gondolas for sure that Fabio owns, he even sang a few bars of popular Italian love songs! I definitely recommend this tour.

This was really interesting. It was the best way to relax and enjoy a most informative tour of the canals of Venice and the grand history. We really enjoyed the conversation and the expertise of our Gondolier.

The gondolier was excellent. He wasn't much of a talker, but that's what the guide was for. the gondolier's maneuvering in the canals was amazing. We were surprised by a rain storm and he covered us with a tarp he had and got out of the rain. It never stopped however so we had to make a hasty exit. The tour guide was very expressive, explanatory and helpful. I'm so glad we booked the gondola trip with the tour guide in order to find out all the details along the canal.

We pre-booked the gondola trip before we got to Venice, together with an English speaking guide. The ride was very relaxing and took us around the 'back streets' as well as the main area tourist area's which was lovely, and the guide was very informative. Would recommend.
