Great tour

We enjoyed this tour which started with a 1 hour walking tour of the area behind St Mark’s Square, then a gondola ride and finished with a tour of St Mark’s Basilica. The guides were informative and really brought the history of these places to life. We had a 14 year old travelling with us and she enjoyed this tour, but I’m not sure I would take younger children as they are likely to become bored with the guided tour segments, although they’d love the gondola ride! Highly recommend this tour for people aged 12+ years

About Whyat We Expected
Walter W
, Nov 2018
The tour started out fine, however, very disorganized. Seemed like they grouped about 10 tours in one meeting place and you were lucky to get in the correct group. The tour was actually three tours one after the other. After the walking tour, then we went to the gondola tour. A bit disappointing, a bit too short, and still disorganized. The third segment did not happen because of flooding. We discovered the cancellation on our own, as we could not get to the meeting place because of the flooding. No one offered us any advice, because all of a sudden, no one spoke English.

Morning tour

The walking tour was well done and interesting, St. Marks Basilica was amazing and well time by this tour company. The Gondola Ride however was disappointing, there was 6 of us in the boat and this took away from the ride. It just felt like a boat ride but nothing special, and with no commentary it was lost on us. I would do the tour and walking portion and get a separate Gondola ride if you want to take one.

Very knowledgeable guides; a bit disorganized

This tour was three-pronged - walking tour of Venice; Gondola ride; tour of St. Mark's Basilica. Each prong was led by a different guide - the number of people for each prong of the tour was very large and while the staff were very pleasant, there was a bit of disorganization in getting all the right people together for each leg of the tour. Despite this, the guides were very knowledgeable of the history of Venice and St. Mark's Basilica - and very accommodating with answering questions and pointing our interesting aspects of the tour.

Lovely tour! Enjoyed walking the streets of Venice and getting tips on places to visit/eat. The Basilica was beautiful and our guide was informed and to top it off you cant beat the prices for the Gondola!

I great way to see the center city with a guide and ear piece to hear along the way. Perfect if you have a few days, some for your own exploring and this day to hear all the information you wanted to hear or have questions about. A lot of people getting sorted out at the beginning but runs smoothly afterwords. Only downside, it can be busy and backed up. Keep in mind that you are in skip the Line and much better off than others. It moves faster and you can have more of your own time at the end rather than waiting in long lines till sundown.

Although we missed the Basilica tour due to an unforeseen religious event that day, Viator gave us a partial refund and we enjoyed our morning tour and the gondola ride was great!

I signed up to get a tour of St. Mark's. The local operator was so disorganized that I didn't get the St Mark's portion of the tour. The walking tour was interesting and the gondola ride was also poorly organized but enjoyable. Then I was shuttled from point to point for the St Mark's portion that I waited for over an hour and a half, never getting the tour. Very poorly done by the local organizer.

Liked the use of headsets. Lots of wasted time trying to gather groups together. Would like to have had a gondolier who sang or had music to go along with ride to make it more fun.
