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.
We had a wonderful time - thoroughly enjoyed the ride! We were the lucky ones to have the musicians in our gondola! Maybe this is something one can request at booking - it would be worth your while!!!
We enjoyed our gondola ride with serenade. The day was beautiful, cool, and pleasant. It was an amazing ride!
Excellent !! We did the sundown Gondola ride We had to share the gondola with a young Japanese couple who were very friendly and helpful in taking photos of us ! We were lucky to have the singer and the accordion player in our Gondola.! They obliged us and sang O Solo Mio and the accordion player played Isle of Capri for my wife to sing ! It was a truly magical and romantic experience. The ambience was lovely with the evening lights coming on and people waving to us from bridges as we passed by. However , I wish they took us more on the grand canal under the Rialto bridge etc than the narrow canals. If ever you visit VENICE this is a MUST do .
We thoroughly enjoyed our gondola ride - a great way to finish our day in Venice.
This was so much fun! Unfortunately, it was raining but it was still pretty magical nonetheless. It was an amazing experience you really can get nowhere else. I just wish it lasted longer!
You have to do this when in Venice. We were lucky enough to have the serenade on our gondola. We were the envy of the other gondolas in the group ride. This experience was better that I ever expected it to be. One of the highlights of our time in Venice.
The gondola ride itself was amazing - a true highlight of Venice. And while we thought going into it that iit might be cheesy having a singer and an accordion player along, I must confess that was somewhat magical: those sounds echoing off the narrow, ancient walls as we wended our way through the canals.
We do have one criticism. There was zero personalization for the tour. No one greeted us (they merely took our vouchers). The gondolier didn't introduce himself. We weren't introduced to the two other couples in our boat. We didn't get to meet the musicians (they were in the next boat). We were just ushered into a boat and away we went. So that aspect felt highly impersonal and a real turnoff. Still, the ride and serenade were lovely.
Great fun! The route was lovely, and although the gondolier did not sing, he was engaging and informative. I travel with students and will be sure to keep this on our itinerary.
The Gondola ride was beautiful!!! we got lucky and got in the Gondola with the singer and the Acordion player. the singer was very very good and this whole experience was a dream come true. I recommend this tour to everyones that visits Venece.
Super tour! La sérénade est un plus et on peut l'entendre à partir de toutes les 6 gondoles. À faire absolument.
