    The ride was nice and the guide very good. We enjoyed it a lot although the weather was nice. It lasted one hour and was enough to see around.

    The tour was extremely interesting and our guide Marco was a hoot. Had us laughing the whole tour, while giving us great information the whole time. The gondola ride was a blast, though I’d ensure the weather will be good before you book it ha ha.

    The guide was a teacher and very knowledgeable but maybe to much information on some of the political points about various things along the tour. Overall she was still very ingaging. Now the bad part is when we were left for the gondola ride the lady showed up 30 minutes late and as a result we had a very disappointing ride in the dark. The Grand Canal may have lights but the 20 minutes not on it were in almost total darkness. It simply ruined my Wife's most desired tour. The lady should be professional and show up on time , 12 people standing in the cold waiting for her to finally appear.

    Thank you to Silvia for a fantastic tour. Silvia was an extremely knowledgeable guide and very passionate about both Venice, wine and food. We visited 5 local bacaro’s and sampled Prosecco, white and red wine as well as cicchetti (small plates) at each venue. The wine and the food we tasted were all delicious and Silvia gave us the background on each glass of wine and plate of food.

    As well as visiting local bars to give you an authentic feel for Venician local social life Silvia was full of historical information about Venice and the wider area.

    Worth mentioning that one of our group was vegetarian and she was catered for in each establishment we visited.

    A most enjoyable and well worth doing tour.

    The gondola ride was one of the highlights of our tour and is a must. Our gondola ‘captain’ was friendly but didn’t act as a guide or say a word during the ride.

    Our tour was great! The guide was very friendly and informative. And we loved that the audio devices allowing us to hear the guide were available to us. Great idea! Next time we'd like to do a tour of the palaces and basilicas.

    We had a great gondoliere trip with 2 gondolas. Sad to say that I ordered a 8 persons gondola, but we had to take 2 smaller ones. Why I dont know
    But anyway we had a nice trip! The lenght of it made us experience what Venice is all about, without being bored on a LONG trip experiencing much of the same in a small gondola, for a long time! All us 8 persons in the range of 25-60 years had a great ride!

    We had a wonderful tour with a knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating guide, Tullia. She had wonderful insights into the history, neighborhoods, open market, culture, and beauty of Venice. Even though we peppered her with questions, we never found the bottom of her wellspring of knowledge about the city, San Marco Basilica, the Doges Palace, and all things Venice (including a GREAT restaurant recommendation!! Rossopomodore was the perfect post-gondola pizza!) Highly recommended

    It was a nice night for a gondola ride and my wife and I and our 18 year old twins has a wonderful time. Music was charming and set the scene as we traveled through the small canals of Venice. Well worthb it, considering it is the thing to do, to gain a unique perspective of life in Venice in the 1500's. Try to block out the rest of the tourists snapping photos of your group. Only complaint, a little short.

    Gondola was excellent, and the operator is nice. However, the tour only laster 20 min. My understanding was it was for 30 min. The tour was on less traffic path.

    We took this tour with Franesco(sp?) as our guide. The walking part of the tour started with a short visit to the small museum located next to the tour groups office. There we did a short VR tour of the beginnings of Venice. From there Francesco took us on about a 2 hr walk over the island. He explained many of the sights and gave us the historical significance of them. The gondola ride was a shared ride with another couple. It was neat to see the City from the canals for an 1/2 hr.

    It was like a dream come true. Venice's picturesque canals, the soft song of the gondolier and the romantic atmosphere made this an unforgettable experience. A must-see for anyone visiting Venice!
