    Our gondola driver was horrible. If he doesn’t enjoy his job, he should find another one.

    Interesting explanations during the walking tour, and the gondola ride part is great.

    For the $50 total for a walking tour and a gondola ride, it was fine. The walking part lasted about an hour and a half. The headsets worked well and our guide was knowledgable (not super entertaining, but the information was correct). Our group was large - about 30 people. We didn't see the Rialto Bridge or the house of Marco Polo, but luckily, we had walked by those earlier in the day. We did see St. Mark's Square and the Opera House. The worst part of the tour is that they tell you to meet at the Alilaguna ticket office by San Marco square and the address they provide takes you no where near the office. We arrived 15 min early and it's a good thing because it took us that long to find the office. It is ALL THE WAY down the waterfront. And there are no signs to show it is a Get Your Guide tour. Then, we had to check in at the public transportation counter (which I never would have guessed if other people weren't there to tell me) and the guy behind the counter was extremely rude.
