We thoroughly enjoyed our gondola ride - a great way to finish our day in Venice.

The gondola ride itself was amazing - a true highlight of Venice. And while we thought going into it that iit might be cheesy having a singer and an accordion player along, I must confess that was somewhat magical: those sounds echoing off the narrow, ancient walls as we wended our way through the canals.
We do have one criticism. There was zero personalization for the tour. No one greeted us (they merely took our vouchers). The gondolier didn't introduce himself. We weren't introduced to the two other couples in our boat. We didn't get to meet the musicians (they were in the next boat). We were just ushered into a boat and away we went. So that aspect felt highly impersonal and a real turnoff. Still, the ride and serenade were lovely.

Great fun! The route was lovely, and although the gondolier did not sing, he was engaging and informative. I travel with students and will be sure to keep this on our itinerary.

It truly was amazing. The accordion player and singer made the ride that extra special and it was the perfect way to finish my Venice stay.

This was beautiful. The city, Gondola ride with the serenade and the experience all made this trip the best proposal i could give to my girlfriend. I proposed on the gondola ride and she said yes. she loved every moment of the experience and she couldn't stop crying. Thank you for a wonderful timex

The gondola ride was very fun. The tenor singing in the gondola ahead of us was excellent. The gondoliers were friendly and helpful. The tour was lovely, traversing several small canals and ending in the Grand Canal. We highly recommend this excursion.

Wonderful !!! Your best bet is to book this before you leave for Venice and that way you do not have to negotiate a price when you get there. Well worth the money.
