    Gondala ride only lasted 15 minutes even though a 30 minute ride was advertised. Did a quick circle through the Grand Canal and a side canal. There were a lot of other gondolas around it was very crowded. There was also no commentary or anything said.

    Trust me not a good experience and not just one off. Logistics of this particular tour company make it a consistent nightmare. First of all it is a shared small group experience not just your group. Always read the buried details. You won’t necessarily be sitting in the traditional seat of a gondola. Secondly, the company books at least 10 gondolas at one time and the cattle calls gondoliers to come in to pick you up en masse. The majority of your 30 minute classic ride is spent in line or in the gondola in a traffic jam waiting to get in the small canal from the large canal or in the small canal fighting the other fifty gondolas for position. There is nothing authentic about this. You are in the smaller canals for maybe 10 minutes and most of that is a stand still. It was less classic gondola and more pirates of the Caribbean at disney. The gondoliers were especially disappointing for the most part — ours further delayed our trip by stopping for a drink since we were stopped in traffic. Many were on their cell phones. I’m not sure if all gondola rides would be like this but this one through Alilaguna is just too congested. Find one on your own. Price is about the same.

    Gondolier was terrible kept shouting at us telling us not to move! The route taken was crowded and not picturesque at all - I would not recommend using this company for your gondola ride.

    It was lovely and worth the money! I’d recommend bringing a hat or umbrella for the first bit as you go into the sun

    These are no special tickets. You get in the counters as well. It was a hassle finding the counter to redeem. Expensive as well. In 80€ you get private gandola. Also it does not takes down the Rialto bridge. Not recommended at all.

    It’s good. But it’s quick. I should have read the description or maybe the hotel should have made it more clear when they gave me the bottle of wine for this trip that I should open it now as there are six glasses of wine in that bottle and you and your Mrs have to smash one every ten minutes before you get back or you’ll look like a softie! So it’s a round the block paddle. I thought we would at least go under the Rialto! So for 150E it’s a lot of money for 1800 seconds but it’s a good experience! Anyone want a bit of wine?

    The view of the surrounding architecture, the ride was nice! Kind gondolier. My daughter and I enjoyed

    The tour was rushed, guide was rude, was not 30 mins at all (by the time we got on, we got about 15 mins in the gondola) Tour guide/operators did not care at all about any photos or making it a memorable experience, was talking on the phone the whole time

    This group herds ppl through like cattle and our gondola operator was the grumpiest dude. We tried talking to him to break the ice…complimenting him on his navigation and he wanted nothing with us socially. Disappointing.

    Lovely experience to see Venice from a different viewpoint- squeezing down small canals and seeing the grand canal from the water. Your operator allowed us to change times as well due to heavy rain when our trip was due which was much appreciated
