Nice ride. Sympathetic gondolier. Too bad the price out of the market. We paid € 130.00 for 4 people when they asked us around 60 max 80 euros.

Going to Venice and going through the experience of riding a gondola is something incredible, its canals, its culture, its houses and nice people. You must give yourself an incredible and unforgettable experience. The only thing the 30-minute route ends fast or sooner.

The time was 20 min only !!!! And it was supposed to be 30 minutes, taking into account that the gondolier decides whether to return earlier or not!!! But take away 10 min!!! I do not agree!!!! But the overall very cool experience!!!!

Brilliant, much cheaper than purchasing there. We headed to the meeting point which was a little hut and spoke to the guy working to confirm we were at the correct place. Once everyone had arrived we walked a short distance to the gondolas everyone got directed onto them. It lasted quite a while and we was happy with the time and route.

Very nice guide and everything was arranged well! We could find the gathering spot easily and the tour showed us a couple of the main spots!

I took the cruise on the Grand Canal on a dreary July afternoon, around 5.30pm when the streets began to empty and the sun was no longer so aggressive. Thanks to these factors, the tour took place in a very suggestive and intimate atmosphere. We were immersed in silence and you could hear the waves crashing on the gondola. At one point the gondolier started whistling a melancholy tune ... that melody was the icing on the cake. Magical experience that I can't wait to do again. A plus also for the friendly and nice guy who helped us get on the boat. Everything really perfect.

This was the most wonderful experience. I felt like I woke up from a dream when it finished. Highly recommend. I also applaud the staff for managing this - can’t have been easy! Fantastic

Finding the meeting point was a bit confusing. I thought I was supposed to meet a gondolier. Eventually, I got to the right place on my own and missed the 'Get you guide' contact that was waiting for me at the meeting point with a sign bearing my name.
