Staff are very friendly and the meeting location was easy to find. A nice overview is given before the gondola ride and while on the Grand Canal. The ride itself was lovely and relaxing and our gondalier even sang a little song and pointed out a few places of interest :) Head to Emilio Ceccato beside the Rialto bridge afterwards to pick up the shirt all the gondaliers wear from the nicest lady who works there.

The experience was good and our guide was great, however I feel it would have been better for myself if I had booked an individual gondola and did a ride by myself instead of sharing with strangers.

Was really lovely. The Gondola ride is a max group of 5 people so still felt intimate. The mini tour of San Marco was also quite informational. Definitely recommend.

Good tour to go to the gondola. This way it is cheaper and you get a small guided tour of Venice. The gondola experience is something that must be done yes or yes.

Interesting trip around the grand canal. The gondola is very beautiful. The only thing is that the "driver" was more interested in checking his phone than in interacting with ourselves. And if we were to do it another time, it would be ourselves alone in the Gondola, sharing takes a bit away from the experience.

The live commentary was informative and inclusive. The gondola ride was pleasant and worth experiencing at least once.
