I would absolutely recommend this. We went on the last day of our honeymoon and I was worried it would be a little bit of a cliche experience... overpriced and just for tourists. But honestly, it was my second time in Venice and the first time I really saw it! It's an iconic, intimate adventure, and you really get to experience the city from a whole new perspective. Our gondolier was so kind and informative without being too chatty and I am so glad we went for it.

Venice without a gondola ride is like Paris without getting on the Eiffel Tower. Excellent and trained staff.

The meeting point is magnificent, we didn't wait at all, the ride was great, you can see the Rialto bridge from afar but otherwise it's great, I highly recommend

The only downside was that it was only 25 minutes. It was so beautiful, we could easily have endured it for an hour. Our gondolier was great, explained a lot to us and even sang (without us having booked this extra package).
