Great tour, loved the fact that it was not in the busy part of the city and got to see local canals.

Lovely! The scenery was beautiful, the ride was relaxing and the gondolier was extremely patient with our toddler. I would recommend this for sure!
A little hot in the afternoon but we enjoyed it

Our host was really nice, and the I appreciated that we were off the main waterway for the gondola ride. It was a little crowded with five people, and I wouldn't recommend going at 3:00 PM. It was pretty hot, though he did try to keep us in the shade when possible. Overall, we enjoyed it and would do it again (if in the morning).
Was pretty good!

My only complaint is that I wish it was longer! Our guide was very nice - he didn't start off with being a tour guide, i think he was trying to feel out if we just wanted to sit back and relax without talking or if we wanted info. Which we appreciated! He answered our questions as we had them but then let us have our time while he moved the boat. Would recommend!

Payer une balade a 2 pour 140 € c'est une ARNAQUE de VIATOR !!! Le tarif est de 80 € la gondole peu importe le nombre de passager !!! J'attends de VIATOR un remboursement de la différence !!! j'ai la photo des tarifs pour ceux que ca intéresse. Question balade dans le quartier de Dorsoduro donc inutile de dire que l'on ne passe pas sous le pont du Rialto ni des soupirs !!
