Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride
Reviewed by: Mary P, July 2016
Good tour! Saw the famous sights such as St. Marks square and the less visited back streets. Learned that Venice was built on layers of petrified forest! Good historical overview. Also took tour to see the famous Bovolo staircase which I may not have found on my own! The gondola ride was relaxing and our gondolier had a sense of humour and was entertaining

Great guide, great tour, great way to get to understand Venice, and the gondala ride at the end is a nice way to top off this tour

The Walking Tour and Gondola ride was very good and I would recommend it to anyone. I wish that we had booked up a tour of Doges Palace and St Marks Basilica as well because the queues were really long and at the information office to get the tickets and we never got to see inside although we did see some beautiful Churches in other parts of Venice.

Our guide was Venetian. She shared her knowledge, passion and love for the city in a fun and easy to understand manner. Her attention to how Venice came about and how it was structured and the impact of tourism today was really appreciated. This tour has given us a deeper understanding and clarified the many myths we hear about Venice. The Gondola ride meant more by having the Walking tour first. A great combination.

Our Venetian guide Marina did a great job imparting her love for her native city in impeccable English. This walking tour does NOT hit the most popular places such as St Mark's so don't be looking for that. Instead we saw campos not piazzas and monuments that are meaningful to the history and residents of amazing Venice. We also got the lowdown on how it stays afloat and the problems that climate change is intensifying. See Venice while it's still here! You've got about a century.

A two hour walking tour with Marco was informative and entertaining.
