It was a delightful time for family nice to hear the serenade when going through canals. At first a bit of a turn off waiting in a large crowd for the group of gondolas to go out - they could have been more friendly and not just say " wait over there" while they smoked and chatted with each other.
There are a lot of gondola tours in Venice, but this one came with music, and was a fleet of several boats. Was organized, easy to find, and a great experience overall! A must do for a romantic time in Venice! Was perfect for our Honeymoon.
The Gondola Ride and Serenade faaaarrrrr exceeded our expectations! It was beyond words. The nice older gentlemen that serenaded us could have passed as a professional opera singer. It was really romantic and there were so many on-lookers watching us with jealousy.
The one thing I must point out is that this is not an intimate experience. We were in a huge group of gondolas (I think 6 or 7) with only one boat with an accordion player and singer. By no ryhme or reason, we were lucky enough to be seated in that special boat. If we were in any other boat, I probably would have rated the tour 3 stars max. I noticed some of the other boats were quite a ways away from our boat so I am sure they had trouble hearing. Not sure. I would recommend maybe slipping the guys a decent tip before in order to secure your seat on the head boat. Good luck and enjoy!!
It was fantastic. A must do. You feel like in the movies with the serenate. I l loved it
We enjoyed our gondola ride and serenade. It was relaxing and fun. We enjoyed the talent of our serenader, and would recommend this trip to anyone.
Loved this! Excellent ride and the serenade was wonderful. Don't miss this.
Yes - this is good ! The true spirit of Venice is wrapped up on this twilight gondola + serenade package!!
Loved the tour - it was very easy to purchase the tickets on the website and very easy to find the tour - the gondola ride was fun and amazing - absolutely loved Venice and cannot wait to go back. Would most definitely buy from Viator again :)
The highlight of our visit to Venice! There is no better way to enjoy Venice! We were serenaded by an excellent singer who when told we had celebrated our 40 th anniversary dedicated a song to us! We had a fantastic time despite the light drizzle that began to fall! We would definitely do it again!
Although, this is my 3rd time doing this tour I never get tired of it. What a great way to experience some of Venice's history. Our gondolier was great. The older man that serenaded us had an amazing voice.
