Activity was nice but it was short and busy. I’d say the best time to gondola would be in the evening (sunset) and around rialto bridge. This was nice too and I had the best seat. I shared with 4 people and a little boy. All good.

Really good, we opted for the shared Gondola with one other couple and it was fine sharing. Got taken round a few small canals and onto the main lagoon. Was lovely and save paying €100 that they're asking when you get there.

Very nice home. The theater is superb. The audio guide is very well done and pleasant to listen to. We take the time we need to visit. I highly recommend.

Gondola ride gave a glimpse of the ancient Venetian streets and the grand canal. It is a must do during the carnival season.

This whole tour is really good 😊 absolutely perfect and a little surprise at the end was good 😊
