When there was a thunderstorm at 5.00p.m. we were worried about the trip but by 7.30 everything was fine again. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and the singing was magnifico!
Wonderful experience and the best we encountered in Venice amidst ferry strike and generally cold-hearted services - selling a 3 day ferry pass without telling you the last day on strike and hotel operator not advising no ferry service at the counter thus ended waiting at pier for more than half an hour.
My husband and I truly enjoyed this tour. The singing gondolier was excellent and the accordian player was perfect for the songs. It was great seeing not only the Grand Canal, but the back alleys where you could see the barnacles and limpets growing on foundations of buildings. The narrow alleys made for superior accoustics for the singing, too.
So before going on our tour there was heavy rain and we had to wait about 20 minutes before being able to leave. This might be the reason why we were the only ones on the music gondola ride. We had two fantastic musicians which sang Italian music on our ride. They were all very nice and we got to ride along the grand canal and smaller little areas as well. It was perfect!
FUN.THE RIDE WAS JUST LONG ENOUGH TO BE INTERESTING BUT NOT TOO LONG. GONDOLIERS WERE REALLY NICE AND FUN. WOULD GO AGAIN.

The tour was absolutely amazing. We felt sorry for all of the other people who had a gondola ride and it didn't compare to the viator tour. We were very satisfied with our ride. We would do the ride again.
Absolutely brilliant experience and GREAT value for money. Well worth it !!!
Due to watch stopping we arrived 5 minutes late and the other 5 gondolas had moved away. Our gondolier said he would still take us and rowed really hard to get us back with the group. Thank you for a memorable experience for more than 1 reason !!!
Second trip with the company would recommend.
Really enjoyable experience for the price. Initial organisation at the queue for the gondolas could have been better but once 'on the water' it was great. Highly recommended
The folks at the place where we board the Gondala were awesome. The ride will forever be a memory not forgotten by my family and I. Also note if it happens to be a season when it's cold you can ask for a blanket and it will be provided. Gracie Y Ciao Ciao Ciao.
nice ride. our rider sang a song for the group of gandola s going inside the city. this will last for about an hour or two. you can click nice snaps. there will be usually a group of 4 or something .. which depends on the crowd. good one.. go for it.
Better than I had imagined. There was me and my partner and another couple plus the accordion player and the singer who was excellent. I had presumed it would just be the gondolier singing. Fantastic.
Service effected with great efficiency. Very satisfied with the services provided by Viator.
This is definitely a must be experience, one of the highlights of our trip, good value for the money but best to book in advance, nice friendly service.
One of the best experiences of my life, the serenade made it amazing
My daughter loved it....I thought it was kind of corny...Just remember their are 5 people in Gondola with you and the driver does not sing...they have 5 gondola going and 2 people in the middle gondola sing to you
