Overall rating

The walking tour was around ~30min and was informative. The guide was very friendly and accommodating to both English and Spanish speakers in the group. The gondola ride was, despite other reviewer's experiences, a full 30 minutes! The gondolier was friendly and it was entertaining to hear him banter with the other gondoliers in the canals. However, you won't be getting the gondola to yourself (we shared with a Spanish couple). Overall, extremely worth it for its price.

Playing was fun and allowed us to learn more about the main interesting sites of Venice and discover less known sites that were interesting as well. The concept is excellent and could be improved, for example the player should be able to tell that the point of interest is not seeable at the moment and be able to continue the game.

An excellent tour, combining a short walk and guided commentary about Venice, together with a short (30 minutes) gondola ride. To do it at least once in a lifetime. Our guide Alessandra was particularly knowledgeable and pleasant to talk to. Recommended!

We had a visit with Alexandra. A very interesting moment, a humorous person, we learned a lot. Alexandra is an awesome guide. Thanks to her.

La breve introduzione iniziale molto interessante. La guida, Alessandra, particolarmente simpatica e preparata.
