We like it a lot. Before the gondola ride, there is a short tour with a guide who tells us some facts about Venice. We really enjoyed the ride, the gentleman who took us on the gondola spoke Portuguese which was very lucky for us. From then on it was easier to create a conversation and he told us some facts along the way.

Unfortunately, it rained on the day the visit was scheduled. However, we were still able to take a gondola ride and it lasted 30 minutes as planned. We were less far than expected because of the weather, but the experience was worth it.

Really special, the whole tour was among the Venetian canals and then flowed into the lagoon! Gondolier affable and skilled at his job, tour actually as described. Really great experience, definitely to be repeated.

Overall very good. A bit chaotic when the guide was trying to organise a group of about 50 people onto the gondolas though.

We thought that we would have the gondola to ourselves, but we shared it with another couple, which wasn't a big deal. But the other couple rushed into the gondola to grab the nice seats closer to the gondolier, so we weren't able to take any pics there. Overall though, I would recommend, but just know that you'll be sharing the gondola ride with up to 5 people max.

The walking part leading up to the gondolas was interesting and fun, learned a lot about the city and the tradition of the gondola!! The only negative about the whole thing was that our guide got us to the gondolas and left all of our groups, they were running behind and it became a little chaotic and we had no advocate for our groups. Otherwise was fantastic!!!
