Our guide was abdolutely incredible! He was both informative and easily approchable. Such a delight. The gondola ride was perfect as well and we even got a vr experience as an added bonus. However the instructions when buying the gondola ride could have been better as we were under the impression that we a tour wouldn'be included at all.

Our guide, Sara, was welcoming and charismatic and gave the group a 15-minute tour before we got on the gondola, which provided information about Venice and the gondolas that I never would have known. The ride itself was wonderful - what a great way to see the city.

Sarah did a great job sharing a little history about Venice and gondolas during our mini walking tour towards the gondola service. Weather was perfect and ride was smooth. Don't expect the gondoliers to speak to you but the silence was golden as you enjoy the ambience! Great experience overall.

No commentary as advertised. Probably better gondola rides and locations in Venice - more inner city would be better. Wouldn't recommend. Suggest paying a little more for a more personal ride.

The city built on water, Venice, is one you'd want to experience on the water! The Grand Canal (Canale Grande) is the bustling main street of this water city and is crowded with water taxis, gondolas, and public ferries. This tour is perfect for those who are looking for a typical Venetian experience as well as an immersive history lesson on the floating city! With tours like these, we guarantee you a picture-perfect visit to Venice.
