Very interesting walking tour: a gondola ride is a gondola ride

We (three) did this tour almost at the end of our time in Venice (1 week), which might have been a mistake. Our guide for the walking tour was Alessandro, pleasant, keen, well presented, polite - could not have been better. He pointed out lots of places for us to go later on. He also focused on an area west of San Marco where we luckily had not been much. The gondola ride was good, but nothing more than a gondola ride. Rather peaceful after the hubbub of the rest of Venice, I cannot get the category ratings with stars below to work - all 4 or 5 Stars.

Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride Reviewed by

The tour was enjoyable and informative. I did not feel rushed.

I enjoyed and appreciated the guide's narration -- her background in French literature helped inform her insight and she managed to keep it lively. The coordinators (the people handing out the audio guides and checking tickets) are a bit disorganized though.

Guide Hazel gave a fantastic Tour in Venice, Doge Palcace, Cathedral

Hazel has a great knowledge about the history of Venice, the history of art and structure of power in the Doge System and the Christian tradition in general and San Marco Cathedral in specific. Fabulous!

Great overview of the city and it's history.

The walking tour was a great intro to the city of Venice. It blended the history of how Venice started as a refuge from the Barbarians to it's dominance in global trade in the renaissance era.

Excellent way to start a visit to the city.

Well worth the price. Having a guide for the palace and basilica made them so much more impressive. The guides knowledge of the history help place very thing in context.
