This was a tour of the Dorsoduro Sestier. The male guide was knowledgeable and humerous and had a store of stories and anecdotes. The walking was easy and at a leisurely pace.
The Gondola ride was generally a waste of time - there is little to see in the dark in unlit canals, especially if the gondolier doesn't want to explain what or where we were going.
This turned into a single couple trip, we were the only ones on the tour. Great female guide who did a great job of showing us an overview of the area and we returned to several spots the next day. The gondola was also just us and other than the cold. it was superb.Reviewed by: Jo, January 2014
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
The walking tour was interesting and informative and took you to parts of Venice we never would have found on our own. however I would not recommend this to anyone who has trouble walking. It was fast paced thru the difficult uneven streets of Venice and up and down steps going over bridges.Reviewed by: gail K, November 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
