Luckily we were in the same boat as the musicians and it was the best part of our Italy trip

I thought the trip was very good... it was quite bouncy and there was a long wait in the queue before boarding but the guys were brilliant at getting everyone on and off the boats. The trip itself wasn't very long, but the singer and the accordion were audible across all the gondolas and the journey through the grand canal followed by a number of smaller canals was very good. Everyone who heard the singing or accordion music was smiling and waving and even some danced by the side of the river...

I had seen a gondola with a singer a few days earlier and was very impressed with the performance. Now I was lucky that exactly this singer sang on our gondola ride. Thank you, it was beautiful

it's great with the serenade. the ride itself is extremely short. Roughly 20-25mins with a quick round from where you launch.

It started 10 m-minutes late, but there were also 10 minutes longer, sometimes you say two, sometimes four and sometimes six people in one gondola, more than ten gondolas went from the main canal to a side canal and then it went back there, the singers and the instrument players you could hear the gondola took turns so that everyone could enjoy it) was far away of course you couldn't bike that much so 50 percent music guarantee

According to the ad we booked with this company as they offered 6 passengers. Fine only 5 but questioned.They were extremely rude and argued with us re our booking, paper vouchers and electronic proof of purchase. After an hour they realized we were not Leaving so put us in boats. 3 of us were with the musicians and had fun but the others couldn’t hear the music well as the gondolier was on his cell the whole time. Our gondolier was yelling at us when we were getting out. Take your chances

This was fantastic and totally worth the money! My husband and I traveled to Rome, Florence and Venice in July 2018. We were on a budget and didn't want to bust the budget, so went with the "shared" gondola option and then splurged to have the serenade option. The experience was unforgettable and easily the best part of our whole trip! The singer and the man with the accordion had great chemistry and were constantly interacting w/ my husband and I. I thought the 20 mins sounded kinda short, b...
