The views from the boat were spectacular, this is a must do. The captain and first mate (Pepe and Hermes) were both very kind and accommodating. Hermes was great, continuously checking to see if we needed anything. Positano is breathtaking!

My daughter and I did this together and we loved the singing! Since it was a group of 6 gondolas, we waited quite bit for all to board their boats to keep us all together before moving. We got under way and enjoyed the scenery.The sunset over the water and city was spectacular!! It ended too soon.

Picked the perfect time for a sunset ride - 7:30. Only wish our gondola was closer to the one with the singer.

Absolutely loved this tour. You go out in a flotilla of 6 boats with an accordianist and singer aboard one of the gondolas. This was great and is pretty much a must when visiting beautiful Venice!

The meeting point for this tour was right down the walkway from our hotel and easy to find. We met up with other people on the tour and divided up into four groups of 6 or 7 people to board four traditional Venetian Gondolas. We started our tour in the Grand Canal and were serenaded by a great singer who boarded one of the gondolas. We made our way through various channels where the acoustics were amazing. We even had a group sing-along to traditional Italian songs. This tour lasted about 45 minutes before we returned to our starting point. I recommend this tour because you get the full feel of Venice for a longer duration. If you want a private gondola ride with your significant other, expect it to be expensive and only 20 minutes average in duration. I would be hesitant to book the gondola restaurant packages see the reviews, go find a nice Cicchetti Bar instead.

My wife and I took this gondola ride with two friends in May 2016 in Venice. I found it delightful in all ways. It was so great to be on the water getting a fresh view of the city. We found it exciting and exhilarating. The gentleman singing in a nearby gondola with an accordian player had a wonderful voice and although he must sing all day, he was passionate. Some people shy away from gondola rides as too touristy, but for us it was one of the highlights of our visit.

We had a lovely time on this tour! The people were nice, the canals were lovely, and the singing was the best part! A little pricey, but absolutely worth the money.

Finding the place where the ride starts was like mission impossible. Then when you finally get there the Gondola guys were not helpful. But the ride was nice and the guy who sings was fantastic.

Highly recommend the serenade tour! It was entertaining and relaxing. It would have been an awkwardly quiet ride otherwise. Our gondolier was friendly and great, not at all immature like I've read in some other reviews. I wish the boat had comfortable seats on both ends we were lucky to snag the comfortable seat on the end, but our friends were cramped in the middle seats opposite eachother and were a bit worried they might fall in. We caught the sunset which made it great for photos! Overall a wonderful experience.
