We had a magical trip with the Gondaliers it was great fun and very romantic. We booked the evening trip 8.10pm magical. I was very aprehensive about it as we had heard some awfull coments and none of the Gondeliers look very happy in there chosen proffesion, I recommend a smiling Gondolier will get more tips than a scowling one as it's one of the highlights of Venice.
We had a wonderful gondola and dinner experience. The accordion player and singer were in our gondola and we had great seats!
It was a very positive, memorable experience for my husband and me!
Would definitely recommend this trip with meal afterwards good value for money, We had a fabulous time....Thank you.
We had a wonderful time. the gondola ride was a great experience and a must when in venice. I was worried from previous reviews about it being in a group but we had about 5 gondolas and 6 people in each. It was a great experience and every one was very friendly . The meal after was a short walk from the gondola and and a lovely meal with friendly staff. So glad we booked it was an unforgetable experience.
Brilliant, This trip is a must. As long as you don't mind sharing this is great value for money. In fact we watched couples on their own not speaking . We on the other hand were having a hoot. The Gondoliers were funny polite and made the trip entertaining throughout. The trip was a good 40 -45 minutes long, it went up the grand canal then turned back with manoeuvres that showed their great skill. We then turned and went in a loop down the smaller side canals all the way serenaded from a great singer in the middle of a flotilla of six Gondolas. Exiting lower down the canal and returning to the starting point. It's got to be said though it's pot luck who you get seated with. We were lucky. Other friends have been, who were sat with a miserable bunch and it ruined it.
The restaurant was a family run affair in a back street and I would advise you have a wander before hand to find it. The food was great. This whole trip is well worth the price. and not a rip off as can happen. decent meal the wine was extra we paid about 40euros extra for the booze but had an excellent first night
We absolutely loved our Gondola Ride. The singing was delightful and our gondolier ws wonderful. We met people from other countries. The dinner was scrumtuous and the wait staff was attentive. It was definitely a highlight of our Italian experience.
Was as promised!!! No hidden fees!! Everything was as stated.
Will use VIATOR again!

This was a wonderful canal ride with excellant accordian player and wondrful singer. We all (8 gondola's) enjoyed the Serenade very much. The restuarant was difficult to find, but the food was excellant and the owner very gracious. I hope he gets more business.
Fantastic experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the gondola ride and live entertainment provided by a singer and a piano-accordian player!
Great time, dinner was given, enjoyed the evening very much, would do it again....
the gondola ride and serenade were truly awesome. dinner was fantastic, once we found the resteraunt
