The gondola ride was the highlight of my stay in Venice! Definitely worth doing. We scored the lover's seat and the singer in our boat. There are usually 5-6 gondolas sailing around together. Felt very, very special. Do this tour as close to sunset as possible! Then go have gelato at Groms.

We had 1 gondola with a singer and accordion player, and about 6 other gondolas. Each gondola carried 6 persons. The singer was very good, we had a good time.

This was a beautiful evening with an amazing accordion player and singer. We were fortunate to have the musicians in our boat and our gondola driver was whistling and singing along. As we did the evening tour, the sun was creating a beautiful sky. With some time on the large canal and some on the smaller, side canals, we had a wonderful ride.

Wonderful experience made sweeter by us being fortunate and getting the king and queen seats, the serenading was perfect and just a shame it was only 35 minutes

Magical for our 10th wedding anniversary! We were so lucky to have the singer in our boat! Beautiful atmosphere through the whole boat ride. Very well organised and a must if this is your first time in Venice like us. Well worth it - so glad we did it.

Very nice for the price. If you are looking for something romantic or special pay more money and get a smaller group. If you just want to experience it and enjoy other people this is the way to go.

Overall a cheap alternative to taking a Gondola ride on the side of one of the canals. The music was great and the trip lasted about 45 minutes. Great scenery and out boat only had 2 other people in it. If you are looking for romantic however this is not the option for you, although my wife and I both enjoyed it. If you are looking to check a gondola ride off your bucket list this is it.

This actually exceeded our expectations. I suppose we were lucky to get the King and Queen seats directly in front of the gondolier so it almost seemed like we had it to ourselves. The serenade was beautiful - musicians were in another gondola accompanying the group but the singing and the accordion playing were awesome. We took the 7:30pm tour which was as the sun was getting lower on the horizon and it just added that little bit more romance to the occasion.

A value for money trip.
Although we did not have the musician and singer in our gondola each gondola took turns in being next to them for a photo opportunity and you could always hear them. It was good to see Venice from a different viewpoint, would definitely recommend it, why would you go to Venice and not have a gondola ride??

Really beautiful experience. We were a family of four, and unfortunately, others were in the gondola with us on the better side of the boat. Had to shift around to get some good pictures.

This was a wedding gift for a couple honeymooning in Venice - the happy couple just sent a video from the gondola and they love it! Great tour - looked like so much fun and I could hear the singing in the video.

We all thoroughly enjoyed this gondola ride with serenade. The men were very helpful to get my sister on and off of the gondola as she has some disabilities. Our gondolier was pleasant and answered our questions. The ride down the canals was great. My only complaint is that the singer sang American songs and I was really looking forward to hearing romantic Italian songs. I couldn't understand that. But the singing and playing were excellent.

Our gondola ride with serenade was so amazing and one of our most memorable experiences in Venice. As with all our other tours/excursions, it was so simple and organized with our Viator purchase. We loved, loved, loved this!
