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!!
Easy to find, almost next to vaporetto stop. Shared gondola with two other couples, had the two centre seats which are a bit cramped if you have long legs. Rock and roll a bit on the Grand Canal but good fun. Lovely up the quiet, narrow canals. Big advantage is fixing the cost beforehand with no haggling. Don't hesitate - do it!
Amazing - viator hooks you up with a guy who serenades you as your taking the trip. Breathtaking way of seeing Venice - shouldve proposed to my girlfriend because she Loved me 10x more after I took her on this ride.
I booked the Gondola trip as part of the Venice surprise experience for my parnter's 30th Birthday. We absolutely loved everything about it and 35 mintues is just enough time for the serenade. The staff were polite and helpful and this experience is something that me and my partner will remember for ever. I would definately suggest booking through Viator for the Gondola, because some couples paid for it there and it worked out at £40 more in Venice than online. Just remember to print the voucher, sign and take photo ID with you. Brilliant!!!
