Overview of Venice Tour

We were exceedingly pleased with the Overview of Venice Tour. The tour lady (sadly I forget her name) was excellent. Such a lot of information and hopefully I will be able to remember a lot of it. She definitely deserves a gold star! We ended the tour with a gondala ride.Perfect as it coincided with our wedding anniversary. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Venice Walks & Tours - Gondola Ride

No matter what anyone tells you, take a gondola ride in Venice. I was told it's touristy, the water smells, it's crowded etc. We went in busy month of August and it was great. For 40 minutes we glided through the canal, and even into smaller side canals. Our gondolier was wonderful and even sang to us when we asked (another thing we were told they wouldn't do). There were other boats and gondolas on the tour, but there was plenty of room. We saw the beautiful buildings from the perspective of the water, which was great. I only wish it had been a longer ride. I will go back to Venice and I will take gondola rides again!!

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!

Wonderful Gondola experience

Something you can not afford to miss is a super Gondola ride around the canals of Venice. We took a ride from the Grand Canal near the station. We were given a price at the start and had a very well informed trip and commentary all the local attraction and history. You also see Venice from a viewpoint that most only see from the bridges and pathways. An excellent attraction
