Really enjoyed our gondola ride! All well organised and efficient. The actual ride lasted for 25 minutes, which felt like long enough and was good value for money. Really pleased we booked this, the highlight of our day in Venice!

Stroll a little tarnished by the number of gondolas that cause traffic jams

We were glad we booked this experience in advance with Viator. We met our guide and she led us to the front of the line. We had a great experience and appreciated her help!

The activity was difficult to find because directions were not correct. There was also a hot wait time in the sun and I was also rushed to get on and off the boat because of the long line. It was not an organized experience. Lastly, it seems to me that the activity is overbooked during morning times.

My wife and I both liked it a lot it was very relaxing even with another couple in the boat with us and having boats lined up but to front but that really didn't matter it was very tranquil

It's very good, it's 25 minutes and no one sings hahaha. And you share the gondola with other people, unless you are 4 people in total. It is what it usually costs and since you are going to Venice you should do it. It's very good and I recommend it

The tour has a nice route, it goes through the small channels, it is very organized, in my gondola there were only 4 people. However, as expected, it was very fast (30 minutes) and the gondolier didn't say anything during the tour. Anyway, I recommend it!
