  • Sorry cannot rate this tour as we got lost and missed it altogether.

  • This was a perfect tour for us. Our guide was local and brought us great background in introducing us to Venice. Highly recommend!

  • You can't go to Venice without this Walking Tour and Gondola Ride. The streets are so narrow in Venice and it's easy to become confused. Our guide walked us through these narrow streets and told us quaint stores about the different neighborhoods. Also, highlighted interesting buildings, which one can easily miss. The city is extremely charming with its squares, bridges, and multitude of shops. After, the walking tour, we relaxed on the Gondola Ride. Sharing the ride was pleasant, however, the Gondolas are restricted for the canals and there could be some traffic. Boats and water taxi traffic We enjoyed Venice very much and this tour helped us have a better understanding of this beautiful city.

  • loved the walking tour and the knowledge of the guide. Saw things I certainly wouldn't have found on my own. Little disappointed with the gondola ride. Gondolier not at all friendly it was very much done out of duty not pleasure. Overall though I would recommend the tour. Venice is just magical from all view points.

  • Loved the walking tour through Venice. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this tour.

  • A very insightful and fantastic tour to an introduction to Venice.

  • A great way to get acquainted with the city. Tour guide gave us lots of history and interesting facts. The gondola ride was a bit touristy but we felt it was a must if u visit Venice, and it was very pleasant and even fun. We were very pleased with the entire experience.

  • Excellent. Our guide was very informative, and the Gondola ride was very good. We saw many interesting things that we wouldn't have if we hadn't done this walking tour. It was very interesting. With the gondola ride, it is shared. So you get in in groups of 6. My husband and I were lucky to sit together, as one couple was not, so be prepared. It's not your romantic gondola ride, so don't mistake it for that. But it was great fun.

  • It was a wonderful start to our stay in Venice .Our tour guide was excellent . He not only showed us interesting sites,he also gave us tips on going around the city on our own afterwards . Thank you .

  • The walking portion of this was just ok, which is why I gave it 4 stars. It was informative, but not super engaging. The gondola ride however, was incredible and for the price you pay and what a Gondola ride alone typically costs, this is totally worth it. Definitely do this on the first day as it shows you areas near St Marc's that you won't need to visit again.
