That was great 🤩 a perfect German guide, a super nice gondolier, who got the ride extended by 30 minutes instead of an hour! We were with the Gondola San Marco, Grand Canal, La Venice Opera, Rialto Bridge, Bridge of Sighs Doge's Palace and much much more !!! THANK YOU 🙏

We are really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was Clementina. (I hope I spell her name right). She was so kind and telling us a lot of stories about Venezia. Gondoliere was amazing! He rowed the gondola perfect! I highly recommend this tour!

We enjoyed a nice ride on the gondola. Clementine (I think) was very good tour guide. She explained a lot about Venice’s history and the buildings along the smaller canals and then on the Grand Canal. Grazie mille for a lovely experience!

Excellent Cristina, perfect driving of Franco. I would have liked a little bit more information like the tronchetto price and that it was not included. But everything was good.

We had a lovely guide and a relaxing ride. Worth the money.
