We had a very good guide. The gondola ride was a bit short though. It was well worth taking the tour :)

Definitely a highlight of our trip! We couldn’t figure out if we should do a gondola ride or a boat trip and I’m so happy we made the choice we did. Our guide Elisa was so outgoing and knowledgeable and we were able to see so much more of Venice in an hour than we would have in a gondola.

The only downside is that the departure location was extremely confusing to find. You go to the dock that is near the Illy coffee shop. To check in, you need to go to what looks like a public ferry ticket booth.

Grace was waiting for us at the agreed meeting point, short walk to where the water taxi was waiting at the Rialto bridge. We had 2 hours of the fascinating history of Venice from the water, along the grand canal, through some of the smaller waterways & out on to the lagoon to see St Marks Square - we then went under the Bridge of Sighs to travel back to Rialto. Grace is so knowledgeable & shared lots of interesting facts & fiction....our girls (12&14) enjoyed the trip as much as we did - relaxing in the water taxi, taking in the beauty of Venice from the water & listening to the lovely Grace - a great trip & introduction to Venice. Thank you Grace.

This tour is a Must Do to get a feel for Venice. We understood Venice much better after seeing it all by boat. Our guide Alisa (hope I am spelling her name correctly) was excellent. She gave us history and stories and information on everything that we saw. We highly recommend this tour. It was well worth the two hours.

Boat was 30 minutes late. Tour lasted 40 minutes, not 60. We finished in the dark. Guide was great. Too bad the water taxi service wasn't. Reached out to Bucintoro Viaggi about it and they never responded. Neither did trip adviser. I hate leaving a bad review, but this was really disappointing for 550 bucks. Absolutely not worth it.

Great tour with a local guide. Well worth it.
You get to know the different areas and then later you can visit the most interesting once by yourself.
