One of the best ways to take a Gondola ride as you don’t have to worry about negotiating a price. The location was very easy to find and ride lasted about 25 mins, including a portion on the Grand Canal, and very good picture opportunities throughout the ride. Pls note there is no one at this service to take a group photo for you and look out for the man with a sling bag at the meeting point to put you in queue for your ride.

Bought the private tour but all boats going out were private so it was a waste of the price. The Gondolier did not say one word to use (hello, goodbye, nothing). It appeared as though other Goldoliers were talking to the visitors. Beautiful ride, once in a lifetime but there were plenty of companies and I would not pick this one again.

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).
