Very good experience! The group was easy to find! We started the activity by the gondolas .. very nice (we are 6 per gondola so for those who do not wish with other people it is not the right things for you) But it's honestly not disturbing at all then the tour was perfect with an excellent guide in French! I recommend this activity!

We’d do it again anytime

The gondola ride was the highlight of our trip. It was very relaxing and we felt safe during the whole ride! The tour you do after was very funny and educating, we learned some interesting facts about how Venice is structured and developed over the years. Highly recommended and worth every cent if you ask us!

Very nice!

Great insights into a fascinating city! It started with the gondola ride, you are right in the middle, very nice gondolier. Totally friendly guys take care of the organizational side. Veronika made the German tour very authentic, interesting and varied, great mix of information and entertainment. We even stood on a footbridge in the middle of the Grand Canal with a magnificent view of the Rialto Bridge. Our two primary school children also liked it. Thanks to an earphone, the guide is perfectly understood at all times, even if it is louder around it or if you want to stay behind for a nice photo. The group was pleasantly small with about 15 people. The tour was at 3 p.m. on Mondays. Meeting point directly in front of the post office. Great praise!
