This tour is overpriced for what you get. The walking tour could have been good but was very chaotic and unorganized, the guide was hard to understand and also made several anti-Semitic and islamaphobic comments throughout the walk that made me very uncomfortable. In order to get from the walking tour to the gondola ride, you have to basically track someone down and ask where to go. I very nearly missed the boat. If I had it to do over, I would book a different tour company.
