The ride was exciting! We traveled in a group of six gondolas. An accordionist played for the singer. We traveled on the Grand Canal and also down smaller waterways. The entire event was wonderful.
The best way to spend a romantic evening in Venice, I would suggest the evening/sunset time.
I paid extra not to share the gondola with another couple. i recomend to get your own.
A good 'must-do' experience and well worth the money. We were sat on a gondola with four other people and our gondola was part of a 'pack' of five gondolas in total which set off along the grand canal and then down some of the small canals before returning to the point of origin. You get a serenader on one of the boats (complete with speaker!) so that you can all hear. This boat also tries to make its way between all the other gondolas so that you can get a good view and hear clearly. A fantastic experience.
Once we knew the route, we came back the next night and stood on one of the bridges and watched the gondolas pass through listening to their serenade which is also another experience as you hear his voice and the accordion along the narrow canals in the early evening. Beautiful.
A wonderful experience, not to be missed! We were in the gondola next to the singer and when he sang Sole Mio my evening was made!! My husband is disabled so two gondoliers helped him on and off the boat they were amazing,our thanks to them all.
This was magnificent! Alot of fun to be part of a fleet of gondolas and my gondola was right next to the singer's! A+
I really do recommend this tour for anyone that goes to Venice! The tour is a bit short but the crew is so nice and helpful. We didn't have our paper voutcher and they let us email the voutcher so that we could still get on the tour for the following time frame. That really meant a lot to us seeing how that was the only reason we had stopped in Venice for the day!
Excellent! this is a MUST DO in Venice. The gondoliers make it great fun and they are very informative. Great value for money!
We loved Venice and really enjoyed the Gondola Ride and Serenade. We recommend this scenic Venice experience!
