It was very good and we strongly recommend everyone to go for it!
The canals were so beautiful, our musicians were great and we could not have had better weather. A must to experience the canals and narrow waterways.
My husband and I shared a ride with 2 other folks and were serenaded by a very good singer! We really enjoyed our trip so much and this part of it was Romantic and special. Something we will never forget!!
The best gondola ride in Venice. We had such a wonderful time. The singer was fantastic. Loved the music, We highly recommend this gondola ride to other travelers.
it is worth doing, really enjoyed it. One tip; if you are not first on the gondola, hang back until it is full then be first on the second one, because everyone wants to sit on the double seat and there is only one, the rest is stools not very romantic

Lovely, we were lucky enough to have the man singing on our gondola otherwise probably wouldn't have been quite the same experience as there is a group of gondolas and only one singing.
This was so much better being serenaded even if you shared the singer in a flotilla. We loved it!
While this isa group experience with several gondolas, it was easy to hear and enjoy the enthusiasm of the singer. Arriving early we were able to ride without a delay and had more time to enjoy the remainder of the evening.
Great time! Great price through Viatour! How can you visit Venice and NOT go on a gondola? The serenade was awesome. Beautiful evening ride - five gondolas leave at a time and travel around the streets of Venice. Just lovely!
Absolutely beautiful. Venice is just gorgeous, you can't go wrong with this company either. Not all of the gondola companies provide a serenade but these people do and it's wonderful and so romantic.
We took the 6:30 gondola ride. It was the perfect time - the Grand canal was not busy with boats and the smaller canals had very little traffic so you really got to see the buildings and architecture around you. While we were being serenaded the sunset in the distance a the most amazing rainbow appeared - just spectacular!
Beautiful. We had a wonderful time! Highlight of the trip to venice. Everything my wife was hoping for
Loved it. One of our highlights on our 6 week tour. The singer was fantastic with his colleague on the accordian. Perfect ride.
Fantastico!!!! A must do when in Venice. Was perfect. Gondola, music and full moon.
We loved this. It was a good fun little evening. We had 2 adults and 3 kids so had a gondola to ourselves. A nice bit of quiet time in a hectic schedule. Recommended.
Excellent value for those wanting a gondola ride, but not willing to pay the price for a private one. Met some nice fellow travelers on the ride.
What a brilliant experience ..... do it!! It was a little tricky for us to find the pier to start, but we did an on-foot 'recky' beforehand. On the trip we were serenaded by an opera singer and entertained by an accordion player in our group of ten boats each with about 6 people in each, which first headed up the Grand Canal for a short distance before heading up the narrow back streets (I mean back canals!) where the music sounded its best. It lasts about 40 -45 mins altogether and was far better value than anything our cruise ship was offering.
The gondola ride was a highlight of our trip. We took the evening tour and floated past palaces and bridges along the Grand canal while being serenaded by a singer and an accordionist.
We loved this trip, the seranade and accordian made it feel special and it didn't matter that they weren't in our boat, we could hear them just fine. Would recommend this for people who don't mind sharing the gondola for the same experience and saving over half the price of having a private one.
Absolutely fun event! Great way to see the city. Wish it lasted a bit longer, though!
