This was a fantastic tour. My girlfriend and I booked this in addition to the tour that we were a part of and with two musicians and over a half of an hour through the canals it was just stunning.
I can't put into words how good this ride was. My wife and I were simply expecting the gondolier to be singing while traveling the canals. To our very pleasant surprise, we boarded the gondola with an accordion player and soprano. When she began to sing, we were simply in awe. Our private show was enjoyed by the many people walking the bridges of Venice, as well...but we felt as if this was our own private concert. A experience that will last in our memories forever!
This ride was over the top! Our serenade was excellent. My wife totally enjoyed ride.
Absolutely unmissable! My partner loved every second. We had a superb serenade, beautifully sung and accompanied by a guitar. The gondola glided through the venice canals. We timed our tour perfectly ... as the day turned into the night the views of the bridges and side street expanded into a wonderfully lit Grand Canal.
Although rather expensive, this is a highly recommended tour. A true highlight to any visit to venice and a romantic must! Perfectly run by Viator.
Not easy to find the meeting point but the private ride with serenade is to be recommended. The signer had a wonderful voice and guitar player was excellent. All in all a memorable Gondola Ride.
This was a wonderful experience. The musician and singer were very good. We were the envy of all the other couples in gondolas.
Absolutely lovely. We enjoyed this gondola tour at night. The singer was quite good and came with an accordeon player. Discovery of Venice as lights were beeing turned on,people at their balconies as the singing arose, people on the bridges attracted by the singing and is some corners, looking out to restaurants To be done again next trip.....
The soul of Venice. This was by far a once in a lifetime experience. Best money we spent. Worth every penny. Amazing!
Wonderful experience, good directions, friendly people. If you are going to pay for a gondola ride you might as well go all out. no regrets!
The whole family had a wonderful time and a great memorie for a life time
What can I say? AWESOME! Everything I thought PLUS !!! VERY ROMANTIC!!! The two musicians were great.....took as many pictures of the two of us as we wanted.....one for the memory books!!! I highly recommend Viator for your tour needs!
The need to contact the local provider to confirm time of the trip was inconvenient. However, the gondola ride and serande was a supurb once-in-a-lifetime experience as we went with another couple that we knew, and they let us bring our own wine on-board.

What a marvelous experience!
The nostalgic tunes of accordion and the gorgeous voice made the best match with the scenery. My husband and I wore the Yukata, a kind of Japanese traditional summer costume like Kimono, and we enjoyed the travelling mood so much.
The accordian player and singer were wonderful! Highlight of our trip. We walked up 5 minutes before our ride and they were ready and waiting for us. Great group of people!
This trip was over-the-top amazing. The tours was extremely well organized and kept us all moving and on target yet was very personable. The bus and accommodations were excellent. We would NEVER have been able to see so much without this tour. I would NOT hesitate to recommend this tour to ANY ONE!!!
As my tours with Viator usually go, it went PERFECTLY. They had my reservation together for all TWELVE of us, complete with music. This experience, together with the tour of Cinque Terra, made it to the highlights of our Italy trip hands down by everyone! Thank you for impeccable attention to details!
Awesome. The music was great, the gondolas top notch. No second rate accommodations. Worth every penny -- definitely a tour NOT TO BE MISSED if you are going to Venice!
