About
Venice, Italy’s Floating City, sits on a network of 26 picturesque canals. Cars are banned on the winding, Renaissance-era streets, so you’re best off exploring by foot—or by water. This unique combination tour takes you on a guided stroll through Venice’s mythic cobbled Old City, topped off by an unforgettable gondola ride, undoubtedly the most traditional way to see the city.

Highlights
Guided walking tour of Venice with boat ride
Customizable itinerary determined by a guide
Tick off blockbuster sites: Teatro la Fenice, Rialto Bridge, Scala del Bovolo
See two sides of the city: on foot and by boat 
What to expect
Meet your guide at St Mark’s Square, where you’ll catch a glimpse of its world-famous basilica. Prepare for the city’s history to come alive as you learn about Venice’s past as a maritime superpower and legendary home to phenomenal Renaissance artists. Navigating the cobbled backstreets, you’ll come face-to-face with classic landmarks like the 18th-century opera house of Teatro la Fenice, Venice’s oldest bridge, and an under-the-radar antique staircase named after a snail for its unique spiral shape. You’ll get the perfect overview of the city’s must-see sites while also venturing off-the-beaten-path. End the tour with a one-of-a-kind view of the city from a spectacular vantage point: by boat. You’ll step into an iconic gondola and float down Venice’s turquoise waterways, admiring the majestic palaces that line the Grand Canal.

Don't buy online- cheaper in person!
Brilliant tour but felt I got ripped off buying online- I paid €45 for 2 people the day before our tour; if you go to the ticket office at S. Marco, Riva degli Schiavoni, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy and buy it in person it's only €40. I tried to call the ticket office on trip advisor to ask how much it would be to buy one on the day and they quoted £55!! If I would have known I could have just bought tickets from the office that afternoon I wouldn't have wanted my time at phone bill.

Having said all of this the tour was good. However, when you buy your ticket for the tour at the office there is an option just to pay for the walking tour- I would recommend this as the gondola you have to share (boat of 6 people) and I didn't get to sit next to my husband so I would have rather saved on the tour and then paid separately for a private gondola.

Lovely
Great walking tour. The guide was very knowledge and very VERY funny. It felt more like a comedy tour at times! He said how hard rock cafe was the best local cuisine you could find. Totally cracked me up! Gondola tour was ok-ish, a bit slow for me. But walking tour is definitely recommend. Short and sweet (and funny!!).

Dear 497filipeb, thank you for choosing Bucintoro Viaggi during your stay in Venice! We are happy to read that you enjoyed our Walking Guided Tour & Gondola Ride: this is the perfect combo if you desire to discover the most authentic side of Venice and the most traditional one at the same time. The Gondola Ride in this package is shared with other passengers (and that's the reason for its competitive price): however, we also offer private gondola rides (even with live serenade on board) to who desire a more exclusive and romantic experience. We hope to see you again in your next visit to Venice, Best regards.

Great way to cover a brief history of Venice.
Aug. 2020
I liked that we all had an earpiece to hear easily, that our tour guide sought shade wherever possible so we didn't melt and our tour guide had a great sense of humour. He was super knowlegable and kept things interesting.

Venice was really cold
Feb. 2020 • Couples
The walking tour was good other then we were freezing the entire time. BUT we definitely did get to see a lot of great things we wouldn’t have otherwise and learn more about the history of the city. Our tour guide was wonderful as well, a native who’s watched how gentrification has taken over Venice and taught us some fun facts as well. However the Gondola ride was horrible. You have the expectation of it being a 2 person ride with your loved one but in all reality they stuff 6 people each to a gondola and ride around in extremely crowded alleyways. It was a consolidated group of all the other tours as well so it was extremely crowded, slow, and cold. We were pretty over it half way in, it would have been nicer if the people we were stuck with were decent humans and interacted with others. I’ve also noticed that people rely mostly on tour guides for their information and not the gondoliers who know the history and story just as well if not better. Gondolas are not just a photo opportunity!!!

Dear karencC3937HJ, thank you for spending some of your time to write a review of our services. January and February are indeed the coldest months in Venice, which, for this reason, is less crowded and more enjoyable than usual. We are really happy that you enjoyed our walking tour: our gides are true venetians and they really love to explain the history and tell curiosities about the city. As for the gondola ride, we are sorry that it didn't meet your expectations: our boat tour is in fact shared with other passengers and that is the reason for its competitive price. During the ride, you get to see calmer canals as well as the Grand Canal with the stunning Rialto Bridge in the backgroud, so you have a complete view of the city from the water. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation, best regards,

Really Great Tour Guide.. Cheap way to ride Gondola
First, you need to get your ticket at the ticket office located in Campo San Luca next to the H&M store. The tour was about an hour and half and our tour guide (Tall guy with slicked backed hair) was hilarious and we loved the tour. He showed us back alleys and secrets around Venice and luckily we had a small tour of only 4 people. The tour was 5 stars but the gondola tour is very basic and you share it with other people which is why it’s so much cheaper than taking the gondola by itself. I enjoyed it but wasn’t the full experience.
