This was a wonderful way to end a very full and busy day. The evening weather was just perfect adding to the ambienc of the gondola ride and serenade. The five of us thoroughly enjoyed this treat.

Absolutely magical.. The Serenade and the accordian music made the Gondola ride. Be sure to know though that you will be riding in the same Gondola with other people. You do not get your own gondola with your significant other. (sometimes you might not get to sit side by side either so try speaking up if you want to)

We did this tour at sunset and with the singer and musicians it really made our experience excellent! If you are looking for a gondala for just you and your spouse this isn't for you as it's shared and a group of gondalas are together in the main channel.

Unlike many who visited Venice and took a "plain" gondola ride, we took the one with the Serenade. It was beyond our wildest dreams and will remain in our memories for a lifetime. We have been thrilled with every one of our Viator tours. Each tour guide went above and beyond in knowledge and the ability to convey in English what we would never have learned on our own. Well worth it.

Love it, love it, and a million times love it. The ride and the serenade was amazing, was exactly as we picture it.

Booked this to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Booked for 6.30pm, ideal as the sun was setting and all buildings had a golden glow. Brilliant trip with the added bonus of accordianist and singer. Travelled as a group of 10 gondolas along Grand Canal and then down some quieter side canals. Would recommend highly, one of the highlights of our break.

This was a great trip. We were lucky and got the back two seats on the sofa. The singing and music made it. The singer's voice echoed in the narrow canals. Would recommend to anyone.

It was a dream come true! The gondola ride was excellent. The music was good and the location was terrific. It was a little hard to find but one of the locals helped point the way.

Great ride, evening was so peaceful, serenade was on a separate gondola nearby but he led several of us gondolas through alleyway canals and the grand canal with great music and a beautiful voice.

We went on this tour as part of our cruise to Venice. It was a really good way to see this enchanting city and added to our wonderful holiday.
We would thoroughly recommend this tour.

What a wonderful way to spend an evening in Venice. Even though its a group of gondolas we were close to the music throughout the ride, both on Grand Canal and side canals. Italian Accordianist and Singer on Gondola Ride, in Venice!! Doesn't get better than that. Thanks. We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversay!!

Absolutely great. Singer had fablous voice and sang the songs that are typical of Italy. Wish the ride had been longer than 35 minutes!!
