Lovely ride in the gondola with my partner and 3 others.The guy who steered our gondola was fun,singing away and pointing out the sights along the way. The only fault was the head phones for everyone from the Tour Guide not working so did miss out on his info.

This was BY FAR the best deal for the money of our entire time in Venice. We were fortunate to have an accordion and a singer in our boat who sang for the small group of boats with us. I only wish I’d remembered to bring the Prosecco.

Excellent guide with bluetooth headphones for everyone. Well organised

Super Aktivität mit sehr guten Rätsel! Sehr empfehlenswert!

Great theater with good explanations with the audio guide.
