Meeting point was easy to find where we were met by our guide Anna; who was lovely. Although confined to the Cannaregio district be prepared to be on your feet for 2+hours listening to interesting information and stories. We loved it and good value for money. A great way to an spend early evening.

I’ve been to Venice many times but this was my first gondola ride with my daughter. I didn’t expect much since I know this is a shared ride. But we really enjoyed it. We will be doing this again the next time we return.

beautiful experience, pleasant tour even for 10-11 year old children thanks to the very prepared guide Valentina who gave us both historical notions and curiosities about life in Venice. highly recommended!
