Why this Event?

Book your enchanting private gondola ride in Venice and glide through centuries of history, allowing yourself to be captivated by the glamour and elegance of the Venetian Palazzi. The perfect way to appreciate the beauty, charm and colour of this unique city built on water, you will be enthralled by what surrounds you.

Feel part of an ancient Venetian tradition and experience Venice as the locals have for more than a thousand years. Once upon a time the most noble and wealthy of families would have travelled around by gondola - the slightly eccentric Peggy Guggenheim was the last person to have her own private gondola in the 1960's.

On this unique exploration of the Venetian romantic canals, unwind and relax into the gentle rhythms and movements of the Grand Canal, appreciating the skill involved in steering the gondola ride through the intricate waterways of Venice.

As you sit back and take in the views, you will inevitably become involved in the friendly banter of the gondoliers - as much a part of Venetian culture as the gondola itself! This charming gondola ride venice tour will take you one step closer to the romantic facades of the city and will enable you to understand what it was to be truly Venetian.

This was so much easier than having to find parking and navigate the memorials on our own. We had plenty of time to leave the bus and explore the memorials up close.

Awesome tour. Our tour guide Al was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure that were able to really enjoy the memorials. There are so many tour bus options, I'm happy that I chose Gray Line Tours!

My daughter and I went on the memorial/monument tour. Big Al was our tour guide and did an awesome job! We went to DC for a week and this was our favorite tour! We got to see so much in such a short amount of time! Would recommend and would do it again!

Tour was cancelled. Given vouchers to Big Bus Tour. Their bus broke down and we walked most of the tour. Not what I was expecting.
