During the winter period (from November 1st to March 31st) the Basilica guided tour is BILINGUAL, so explanations are provided in two languages if the audience is mixed

To visit St Mark's Basilica it is necessary to dress appropriately (no shorts, vests or tops) and backpacks are not allowed for safety reasons
The gondola ride might be suspended in case of bad weather. In such cases, you are required to go to the tour departure point in order to know whether the tour takes place or not and any alternative ways to use the service
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.

A gondola can host up to 5 people, thus if your reservation includes more than 5 people, your group will be divided into smaller groups, or rather you will enjoy different gondolas
This is a collective tour, so there might be other people enjoying your same gondola. In this case people belonging to your reservation can be divided into different gondolas

Gondola ride was fine, but Basilica tour not worth it. To only added value is the guide, but you need a lot of free time
The gondola ride was perfect. The guide has waiting for us, and showed us the way to the gondola. We were group of six, and we have been used two gondolas, which was really comfortable.

We have agreed, that after gondola ride, we will meet under the big blue clock. Been there at the time, but we had to wait for english speaking guide for maybe twenty minutes. There has been three groups (french, german and english).
I was expecting, that there will be another entry for guided groups, but my assumption was wrong. We have to wait in the same line as other individual people. When I asked the ticket lady, why we are not waiting in the line until the english guide will arrive, as we can move closer to the entry, she told me, that we have to wait for a guide near the Doge’s palace exit.

So we have been waiting for the guide 20 minutes (and he still didn’t arrive), then we should stand to the end of the line, which was approximately another 30-40 minutes of just waiting.
I decided not to accept it, so I had cancel my visit. (If I wouldn’t book a tour, I would probably already finish my visit of Basilica)

Worth doing on a day trip to Venice
As we were in Venice only for a day, we thought this would be a good idea to avoid queueing and get a taster for the city. The gondola ride is shared (with up to 6 people) but this didn’t bother us as it was still a unique experience for us all. Tour guide for Saint Marks was very knowledgeable, delivering insightful nuggets about the church and city with good humour.

May 2019 • Family
We enjoyed the gondola ride and the short tour of St. Marks. It is quite a bit bigger tour than I expected it to be, which caused for some confusion for a minute as they broke us into groups of English or Italian speaking families. Overall a good experience.

Couldnt get the gondolier to tell me what time the longer trip took as you could get 30 mins for 80 euro, anyway for an extra 40 euro you get.....5 minutes. That said it is a good experience.

Highly recommended trip. Gondola ride was more than I expected. Beautiful. The Basilica Tour was extremely well done. The guide Veronica was very informative. The Basilica was better than I expected. It was so beautiful. We sat down in the Basilica, as this was part of the tour. The beautiful marble and paintings on the ceilings and walls were stunning. Well worth the money.
