Very good tour. The guide made it interesting and included the right mix of local history to it and you get a Gondola RideReviewed by: Grant E, November 2013
Experienced tour guide, she knew every corner in Venice. The gondola ride is nice at night.
It would be very helpful to provide map and instruction how to get to the meeting place.
This tour was adequate. Our guide was ok. She was knowledgeable, but not personable. She recited facts, but had no passion. It ended with the Gondola ride, and there were 6 people on our Gondola, which I assume is customary for this tour. Our Gondolier kept complaining about how heavy the boat was with 6 people and was yakking on his cell phone for a good part of the tour. That detracted from the magic of being in a gondola on the canals of Venice. At least the photos I took captured the magic.Reviewed by: kathiej, October 2013
Too,too long.... No breaks,walking on uneven stones for way too long Terrible experience, and a guide who could care less.Reviewed by: William B, November 2013
My friends and I were quite disappointed with this tour. Our Tour guide, Angelo, while he may have known about Venice, did not make it an enjoyable experience. He rambled on , with a heavy accent, and walked as he spoke, oblivious as to where his tour members were. We had a hard time understanding him and he went off on tangents, sometimes forgetting to come back to what he was speaking about. We took this tour on the first night we arrived in Venice, and were not thrilled with the introduction to Venice he gave us. He might have knowledge regarding the city, but could not relate that to us in a enjoyable manner.Reviewed by: Sheryl M, November 2013
