Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gracious. Definitely a must do to get the history of this beautiful city of Venice. The only thing that was not up to expectations was the gondola ride. It was too short(a trip around the block) and it was during rush hour.


On a damp, drizzly day we wandered around Venice with our guide finding interesting and unknown places.


Excellent tour... Tour guide was amazing.. Worth to try.. Very recommended with the gondola ride....


We had the most informative, fabulous tour! We saw things and learned things we would never have learned. Made our visit to Venice one of our favorite stops in Italy! Ended with a gondola ride. Absolutely recommend!!! Bravo!


It was an interesting tour . The guide was very enthusiastic and informative. We enjoyed the stories and the history .


Interesting, informative, easy going and great way to see Venice especially the bits away from the crowds.


Unfortunately, found the tour guide very difficult to understand. Ear plug kept on falling out. Not enjoyable


The tour guide never showed up at designated meeting location. Waited around for over an hour to be told it was cancelled by the person at checking location.


We waited around with a group of other tourists and most of us arrived 30 minutes before the tour was to begin. Fifteen minutes after the tour was supposed to begin, we all realized that the tour guide was not coming, despite the fact that there were many other tour guides and tours that were ongoing on the same day. We all tried to call the phone number listed with the company, but no one answered and we received an automated message. We were only in Venice for a short period of time and this was the only tour we had planned and really look forward to it. This definitely put a damper on our trip.


Walking tour was ok. Not great. T most disappointing was the canal ride. We had to wait for 10 minutes to get on the gondola which shortened our trip by 10 minutes. That is unacceptable as it is not our fault they ran behind schedule. Everyone was upset at the end. Not the best value for money.
