Wonderful experience!! They had an accordion player and a singer on one of the gondolas out of about 6 in the group. Sometimes it was a little difficult for all of the gondolas to stick together but the gondoliers did a great job and the music was very well done. This was especially romantic when we got to the back canals just as it was getting dark. Yes, a little smaltz, but hey, it's Italy, and that's what romance is about! The only problem is that of the 4 passengers in a gondola, 2 get to sit close together as pictured but the other two have to sit at 90 degrees - one on the bench facing backward and the other on a small chair facing sideways. Try to be the first two onto your gondola to get the cozy seat together.
Interesting overview of Venice. Good to do it early in your visit. Guide was very informative.
