Unfortunately our guide was very disappointing! She made the same statements repetitively and ended the tour after 1 hour and 15 minutes rather that the full two hours. She didnt notice when we lost people in our tour group along the way. I have taken many tours through Viator before this and have really enjoyed them. This was extremely disappointing for me and my family.

The walking tour was very disappointing and pretty uninteresting. Taken to an unimpressive plaza surrounded by unremarkable buildings. We did see one twisted-looking building that was interesting. The only thing that semi-saved this tour was the gondola ride, and since we were on the Grand Canal during the annual regatta, that was definitely special!

The guide was excellent. Gave us good history. The Gonfola was the only atttraction that was poorly managed and felt like it was rush,too many people and it would have been better to get the ride yourself. Only disappointment so far.

This was a great walking tour with a guide who provided some great history of the area and was friendly and funny. Wonderful end to the tour with a half hour gondola ride through the canals, including getting out on the grand canal. Great way to experience some of Venice.

It was fun and learned a lot from history to culture. The Gondola ride was definitely a must!

Josey topped the tour guides we experienced in Italy! She was knowledgeable, funny, informative and overall great! She taught us the best way to experience Venice, to get lost and find hidden treasures. Which we did! Ending the tour on a gondola ride was the cherry on the cake!

Our walking tour was the best. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable with the history of Venice. Venice has always been her home, so it was nice to have someone that was very familiar with the past and present. She walked us through most of the high points of the city. Also gave us a sense of navigating through the narrow walkways, between buildings. Gave her a well deserved tip.The gondola ride was nice. What was lacking was the gondola pilot never said a word to us. It would have been nice if he would have given us some kind of history, something. Always chatting with his fellow pilots as we navigated through the canals. The guy greeting the gondola at the end of the gondola ride attempted to solicit a tip. Very tacky. Negative on the tip.
