The Basillica and Doges tour was spectacular but skip the boat ride...

We really enjoyed the tour of the Basillica and Doges Palace. The guide was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. She was also very good at answering all our questions. The boat tour was another matter. I would not waste my time . The boat was small and unless you were willing to stand for the whole tour, the sight lines were miserable. The tour leader was very unpleasant and the entire time I was on the boat I wished it was over. So uncomfortable .

Such a great tour! Our guide Martina was AMAZING!! So knowledgeable, funny, showed us all the major items, & we got to sit in the middle of the cathedral! The gondola was short but enough to get the experience (you will be in a 6 person boat). Highly recommend!!

Hot weather and a large crowd but manageable.

Our tour guide was able to work us through the large crowds of tourist and still make the tour interesting. She was knowledgeable and articulated the history of each site with ease. The gondola ride was worth the wait and fulfilled an activity long on our list.

peaceful, really beautiful. We didn’t really need to book online because there were available gondolas at every corner

Wonderful gondola ride and walking tour!

Knowledgeable guide, fluent in English. St. Mark's is quite beautiful and the mosaics are unique.
