      Very basic walking tour. Hardly lated for an hour and we did not cover even rialto and st Marks square. Could have been much more interesting rather than just the commentary. I would rate this tour as an average. Gondola ride was suppose to be an experience but me ,my daughter and wife were made to ait on three different chairs sharing boat with another family so could not click even a single joint picture on Gondola. Very disappointed ride
