Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • 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
  • No credit or refunds will be given in the case of a no show (if you don't show up at the meeting point at the time indicated on your voucher)
  • This is a collective tour, which means there might be other participants going on the tour with you
  • In cases of religious ceremonies, exceptionally high tides or other special occasions, access to St. Mark's Basilica may not be permitted
  • 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. This means that people with walking difficulties and wheelchair users could not be able to access some parts of the itinerary
  • A gondola can host up to 6 people, thus if your reservation includes more than 6 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

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

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.
