Everyone should take a gondola ride in Venice. It was great - just long enough 35 min.. When you pull out into the Grand Canal, it's breathtaking. High recommended.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2016

this could be a great excursion except you are placed with strangers and there is no narrative from the Gondala pilots


3 star rating: Worth doing May 2016

Had some difficulty locating correct provider. They're all over the place and lots of places have signage identifying themselves as gondola docks. Finally found the right one. We were packed into a gondola with two other couples. One couple had a selfie stick which they cleverly used so that it obstructed our view for the entire ride. Gondolier doing it by the numbers, minimally informative with occasional snippets of songs. Didn't see any similarly fully loaded gondolas, except where it was clearly just one family. Would not book this in advance. Pick one that looks good to you when you are there.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2016

While I would recommend doing a Gondola ride when in Venice, not sure this is the best way to do it. It is less expensive, but you have to wait around for a large group to be dispersed into boats, you share the ride with others, the guide doesn't give you any details about what you are seeing and it was only 20 minutes long. We waited a lot longer for the ride than the actual length of the ride and when there are gondola stands everywhere, if you would prefer to do it on your own time and pay a bit more, it might be worth it. If this fits in your budget and you don't mind riding with strangers as they put 6 to a boat, then this works.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2016

Was disappointed and would not recommend this tour. I didn't expect too much as this was the cheapest price I could find but the gondolier did not interact with his passengers at all. We got a map to show where we would go but he did not even point out the highlights. Instead talked to his mates on other gondolas.
