This was a great experience. The Serenade made the trip even better! Would highly recommend this tour.
So well organised that we felt that we were in safe hands, excellent value for money!! The singing was entertaining as was the music! Best done in the evening,, the only thing was we expected no more than 4 passengers but we had six, but not a problem!! Thank you Aviator.
This tour was great. The musicians were in our gondola and they were excellent. When in Venice, the gondola ride is a must for visitors.
Excellent! The serenade was wonderful... several gondolas gathered and we were serenaded, then we all went up and down canals and the Grand Canal.
Highly recommend, 30 min gondola ride (6 ppl total in boat), serenaded by Italian opera singer. You don't see much of the Grand Canal, but you do see the inside of Venice's canals you cannot see on foot. It does the trick.
When in Venice this is a must. The singing and accordion playing were great additions to this ride.
good experience with the Gondola ride, but a bit pity that our Gondola didn't go under through the Ponte dei Sospiri Bridge=)
Weather not too good but lovely experience.The singer was terrific.
Directions were spot on. A little bit of liquid sunshine was falling but, the singer a musician carried on making us completely forget about it. The gondoliers even stopped under a bridge which added to the atmosphere of the ride and serenade. This was our first serenaded gondola ride and worth every penny.
would NOT travel to Venice without a gondola ride and serenade :)
We loved the Gondola ride. The Gondoliers were friendly and very amusing.
Very fun. Singer was excellent. A little longer ride through smaller canals would be only improvement.
Although it was a flotilla of 6 gondolas, the accordionist and tenor were great. A bit of romance in a group.I would do it again in a heartbeat.
A truly fantastic experience. A nice romantic evening with great music. We had the singer and accordion player in our boat. SUPER!
This evening tour was awesome! The person singing had a marvelous voice and the accordion player was great. Was not rushed, as so many tours are these days. I would do this again.
Great experience. We were lucky with the weather on our gondola ride. If we had booked the day before we would have had thunder storms and torrential rain. The singer and accordionist, as well as a very animated gondolier, were on our gondola and we had a great time ! I would recommend this gondola ride as the best. Only criticism is that personally I would have liked to have seen the gondolier and fellows providing the serenade in the traditional striped tops and straw hats, but on reflection I suppose they have to dress according to the weather. This was early May and not particularly warm.
Ok but was hoping to be able to change time when you come earlier as scheduled
Was really really nice and romantic. What I liked the least is that the gandola man were not that friendly.
My husband and I did this for our first wedding anniversary and it was so much fun! Definitely recommend. We were lucky enough to get the best seats and we also had the musician and serenade on board our gondola. It lasted approx 45 minutes and went through the canals.
