One of the best things I did in Venice. I heard so many times not to take the gondolas, that they are overpriced. Since I’m traveling solo the romantic appeal was worth the money. But every time I saw one go by it just said “Venice” to me. I’m so glad I signed up for the touristy experience. Being in the gondola and floating through the back ways was amazing, and totally unlike walking the streets. And then the excitement of the Grand Canal was magnificent. The guide made the whole experience even better.
I was worried about the reviews saying it was too short but I feel that we got to see all the necessary points plus some. I went with my 7 year old and she was exhausted by the end. Andrea was full of information and he spoke great english. He was very personable and easy to talk to. He even got the whole group to sing for my birthday, which made it extra special.
Excellent excursion. The guide showed us central Venice district, answered all the questions we had about a life a Venetian and gave some tips. This tour was the first thing we did after the arrival so it gave us a nice introduction to the city, where everything is and it’s history.
What an awesome experience. No time wasted standing in lines. Very knowledgeable guide who loved her job. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to visit Venice.
Superb. Very knowledgeable guide. Entertaining and I got so much more out of my tour than the last time I went.
