The Gondola Ride and Serenade faaaarrrrr exceeded our expectations! It was beyond words. The nice older gentlemen that serenaded us could have passed as a professional opera singer. It was really romantic and there were so many on-lookers watching us with jealousy.
The one thing I must point out is that this is not an intimate experience. We were in a huge group of gondolas (I think 6 or 7) with only one boat with an accordion player and singer. By no ryhme or reason, we were lucky enough to be seated in that special boat. If we were in any other boat, I probably would have rated the tour 3 stars max. I noticed some of the other boats were quite a ways away from our boat so I am sure they had trouble hearing. Not sure. I would recommend maybe slipping the guys a decent tip before in order to secure your seat on the head boat. Good luck and enjoy!!
