"Our trip was definitely worth it! We had a wonderful time with the gondolier. He took us into quiet side channels, in addition to the Grand Canal, as we had requested. We had thought of looking for a history tour, but this gentleman told us so much about the history, about life in Venice etc. and answered all questions, so that an additional tour wasn't necessary! Also, booking it this way was cheaper than paying it on the spot (where it usually costs 80 Euros per half hour). We were only the two of us and the meeting up at the Marcus square and walk over to the starting point all went perfectly! I can definitely recommend it on!"..."
