Venice: Gondola Cruise in the Grand Canal
Indulge in the ultimate romantic experience in Venice, and journey along the waterways on a gondola ride. Sit back and dream your way along the Grand Canal, looking at the stunning architecture and soaking up the unique atmosphere of the beautiful city.
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 ...

We had such an amazing time on our trip. From the moment we stepped on to the boat our guide was fantastic. It was a great history lesson in all thing Venetian and any questions we had were answered. We visited Murano and Burano and our guide ensured we didn’t miss anything at the same time giving us space. Would highly recommend! Thank you so much

Very nice experience. Would have liked to have heard few words from the gondolier as well- he didnt spoke a word. Guide was lovely, dont know his name but warm person with long hair. didnt need to download anything as the commentary came with device itself and headphones. Worth the money.

Really great experience. We made our trip right at 9 o'clock in the morning. We can highly recommend this. Venice and the canals are still quiet at the time and there is no waiting time for the gondolas. We liked it so much because there weren't dozens of loud people with cameras at every bridge. We had a very nice and funny driver.

It was Ok. The guide was great, he talked english very good. The ride was a little too short, I think no more than 15 minutes and a bit expensive considering that the gondola was shared with unknown people. I say expensive because while in Venice we saw the same price for gondolas no shared.

Very friendly gondolier who gave us a guided tour through narrow canals with very little traffic. Do not hesitate to wait for him at the start because he may have a delay on the time of the appointment. The restaurant, then, was also very good, with a very friendly owner.

Very interesting to hear the history of the gondola and the meaning of the boats themselves. Beautiful ride through the canals and into the grande canal. Amazing how they guide the boat with just one oar.

Already on the boat trip by taxi to Murano, our guide Giovanna explained a lot of interesting things about Venice and the origin of the glass manufactories. The private tour of the glass factory was very impressive and informative. Due to the special Corona situation, the four of us were the only guests, which meant that we were looked after extremely courteously and personally. The subsequent stroll with Giovanna through Murano with a visit to two churches in which pictures by old masters we...
