The gondola ride was amazing!!! Loved the walking tour as it was so educational and we saw some sites that were off the beaten path. Paola was so knowledgeable and help us find our way back to where our car was waiting.

We took the evening tour at 6.30pm. The Gondola ride was very peaceful, showing parts of the more residential districts. Our tour guide was very passionate about Venice and her knowledge superb. We throughly enjoyed this and would recommend to anyone!

We used City Wonders in Rome, Florence and Venice and we highly recommend them. The guides were very knowledgeable and professional. They also gave us great tips on places to eat and shop. We'll use them again.

This tour was wonderful. Our tour guide, Moses, was well informed, and his delivery was enthusiastic, interesting, and insightful. The tours give you a comprehensive understanding of the period as you see the amazing sites. Skipping the lines was worth the fee alone!
