Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride was great!

We had just one day in Venice and decided to do the walking tour and gondola ride. It was a great experience and we're so glad we decided to do it. We saw and learned more than we ever could have on our own!

St Marks and the Palace

We took the combined Basilica and Palace tours. Our guide for both was very informative and interesting, showing his knowledge of the city and his passion for art & history. It was also a great way to jump the queues at both venues. Would recommend it to anyone especially on their first visit like us.
