Join an experienced guide for the start of your 2-hour combined tour by exploring some less-visited parts of Venice on foot. See the famous La Fenice theater's facade and the elegant spiral stair of Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo.

  • Please note that, due to the particular morphological structure of Venice and the logistic problems resulting from it, we cannot guarantee that the whole tour is accessible to people with limited mobility. This means that people with walking difficulties and wheelchair users could not be able to access some parts of the itinerary.

A great way to see Venice

This is a great experience and so glad we took the option with the walking tour and not just the Gondola Ride. Our walking guide was a true Venetian, very knowledgeable and i learned a great deal about Venice and it's history. Our Gondola guide also provided some local knowledge even thought he didn't have to. A great experience and well worth the money.

We had a lovely guide, but I would not recommend anyone pay for a walking tour of venice. It was slow and I could've done this on my own. Gondola ride was ok, wouldn't recommend a group one. Get a boat tour. This was very disappointing.

Only good part of the tour was the gondola ride.Meeting point was chaotic, long wait for gondola ride, gondola ride very fun. Tour guide not engaging, personable or eager to share knowledge related to subject matter. To add insult to injury she chastised participants for walking on wrong side.

This tour was okay. The gondola ride was the highlight and a good value compared to other gondola options on Viator. The walking tour had some interesting info about the city that might not be covered on a more standard tour, but it was sometimes hard to hear and the stops selected were a bit random

We are glad we did this. The only negative was that there was one Spanish speaking guy in a group of maybe 20? So the guide had to repeat everything in Spanish after the English portion. All three of us discovered that we started zoning out while she was doing the Spanish translation and didn't realize some of the time when she switched back to English. So we missed a good chunk of what she was saying. Maybe the three of us have hearing ADD! The gondola ride was terrific.

The tour was in English and then German by one guide - more an 32 people on the tour which meant a lot of hanging around and very slow progress. Didn't help as it was a very cold day so we didn't finish the tour. I think it would have been much better to have two separate guides, one for each language. The size of the group was much too big as we also took a gondola ride, so again, lots of waiting around.

The gondola ride was crowded and tippy. The gondolier spent time checking his phone rather then telling us about anything around us. The tour was good, but it was cold and long because everything was repeated in English and then German. I thought there were 2 tours not one twice as long.

The gondola ride was longer than I expected and great fun! Our tour guide was not only very informative, but very funny. Exceeded expectations.
