4 StarsWhen in Venice...May 14, 2018

Reviewer: Yvonne Buckley
This wasn't on our bucket list, but when this opportunity came up we thought it would be a good thing to do. The directions were spot on and we met the tour representative, who was very friendly and helpful. The ride itself was good, although it took a while to get the balance right.

There was some confusion over our tickets and the company in Italy said we had only signed up for one person, but we were on our honeymoon so we definitely signed up for two people. But they made a phone call and said it was fine for both of us. The gondola ride was really great. It took you to small parts of Venice that were quiet and beautiful. We enjoyed it more than we thought we would and would do it again

We loved the ride on the gondola. It was what we were expecting. It had a nice even pace and we saw a lot of places close up. When we went to Venice taking a gondola ride was our priority. We really enjoyed it.

This was a great tour! Except the gondolier did not sing!!! Paddling through the canals off the Grande Canale was fascinating: the curved bridges, flower boxes, hotel entrances, many other gondolas! One hasn't seen Venice properly without a gondola ride!

If you want a gondola ride this excursion is almost 50% lower in cost than most. It is a must do excursion for Venice but one ride will last a life time.

Nice ride down part of the grand canal and some of the side canals. Long enough ride and good price.

Excellent. About 8 gondolas all ride together Thru the waterways of Venice for about 30 minutes. Their was a guide on another gondola who was singing Italian songs which was nice touch. Much better price than the ships excursion. If you want your own private gondola to yourself this excursion won't be for you but the price will probably 4x as much.

4 StarsGood but shorter than advertisedOctober 07, 2016

Reviewer: Lela Brissett
The ride itself was fun although i think it was closer to 25 minutes vs. 45 minutes.

If you go to Venice, you have to do this once. Gorgeous trip through the canals the way it used to be done. Gondoliers got their act together maneuvering those behemoths through the waters without hitting wall or other boats.

Venice is tough to get around. We were exhausted from the morning trip to Morano, and it was crazy hot so we were not able to do the gondola ride.

Wonderful gondola ride. We were able to bypass the lines and get right on our gondola. A wonderful experience!

Our entire shore excursion group had difficulty finding the meeting point because it wasn't labelled ""The Royal Gardens"" outside of the gates to the gardens. The site appeared on maps, but was not clearly marked. That aside, the value, experience, and uniqueness of the gondola experience were all top notch. We loved it and actually wished we had purchased a second ride for a different day because it was so great.
