This tour was incredible! Our teacher was amazing! And very reassuring, as I and #39;m a little afraid of boats. She made it all possible and I felt comfortable enough to even try a little rowing! Incredible experience worth every penny and more!!!
This is a must!

Gondola school was amazing! I'm so glad we did this. So much better than simply riding in one. Our teacher, Nan, said that you can't really understand Venice unless you get on the water, and we couldn't agree more. My husband and I both had such a good time learning to row, actually participating in something so vital to Venetian life. This was an amazing experience, and we'd do it again! Can't recommend enough. Get out there and row. :

We want to tell you how wonderful our tour was with Caroline! She was fantastic, fun, patient, kind, very knowledgeable, and a great teacher! She made our tour fun and exciting! I have recommended this tour to everyone I know that goes to Venice. Even folks who go to Italy, I tell them to get to Venice, even if just for the day, and take this tour! Whenever I am in Italy, I will definitely be taking all my family and friends on this tour. This was way better than just taking a gondolier ride!
Caroline gave us a onceinalifetime, absolutely faaaabulous experience that we will always cherish! Don't miss out on this tour!

This was my favorite thing I did in Venice! What fun! Why ride in the gondola when you can drive it? Everyone should do this!

Was the perfect way to get quality time on a gondola, and appreciate the skill required. The instructor was magnificent.

Going to Gondola school was a really different and special thing to do. My wife and I both had a go at rowing and we were expertly tutored by a female gondolier. She was very knowledgeable and patient with us both.
We will definitely do this again but you have to be fit!

I was absolutely stoked about this activity. I cannot recommend it more. Eliza was fantastic and very personable. Making your way through the quiet canals with the mini gondola was simply amazing. Peaceful and beautiful, and you're driving it! Fantastic! Thank you!!!

Really great! Julia was so patient with us, and managed to keep us relaxed throughout! We learned so much more about the way navigation is run in Venice, had the best time on the canals and then out in the open laguna. Absolutely memorable experience and a super bargain for the price considering the prices in Venice are high on all tourist attratractions. What a super idea you've had and I am so glad I found this activity by chance on the net.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know more about rowing and the importance of the canal in Venice. Ana was amazing, and inspiring. She was a passionate and knowledgable teacher. She instilled confidence enough to make me feel excited about rowing and not terrified of falling in. It was a wonderful picture of how Venetians use the canals for everything and how rowing can slow down the pace of the city in an extremely positive way.

My instructor, Caroline, was amazing! On the day I arrived I was the only one rowing so she gave me lots of personal attention and was great with communication. It's a great experience to have and a unique spin on navigating the canals and lagoon of Northern Venice as a tourist. The company provides directions to the meetup spot and lets you know to allow plenty of time to arrive since Venice is tricky to commute in. Highly recommended experience.

Had so much fun! Practiced rowing and steering, and our guide Felix was very helpful and friendly. Seeing Venice from a different perspective was great, and we learned some history along the way. Don't just take a touristy gondola ride while you're in Venice -- learn to be a gondolier yourself!

Nan was the best teacher ever. She was Patient and made me feel completely confident. My friend was there to take pictures and Nan allowed her to accompany us on the lesson! She took me down small canals and then larger ones. She explained the history and navigation. She allowed me to decide on rowing in the great lagoon, which a declined so, we stayed on the canals. Learning to be a gondolier is something everyone should experience while in Venezia.

great tour- very attentive and cool guides. the meetup was at row venice meeting point harbour away from all the tourist and water traffic. after a few minutes of instruction and going through the motions, you immediately hop into the boat and start rowing.

This was a great way to enjoy a gondola, far better than the "tourist" ride down dark canals seeing nothing.

I really enjoyed this experience, I was the only "student" in my boat so I had lots of opportunity to work on my skills. My instructor was very knowledgable and patient with me. We were able to go down some beautiful quiet canals and feel the peacefulness of them. If you are looking to do something a little different in Venice, I would highly reccomend this.

No one believed I was taking this class or even that there was a class like this. Jane and her staff are ladies that really have the concept, skill and patients to get even someone like myself that is not a good swimmer to love the class and respect rowing, gondola's even more. Thank you so much Jane! I will be back next time to do better I promise!
