    Nothing extraordinary, just a drive on a Gondola, nice view and that’s it. The gondola only pass by the grand canale (about 5’)

    It was a good ride. The gondolier was good. It was worth the price for that unique experience. As we did the ride in the afternoon, the wind was cold.

    You can't go to Venice and not try a gondola ! Great experience and good way to enjoy the waterways. Not a Cornetto in sight !

    We had a lovely half hour meandering through backwater canals and on to the Grand Canal.
    The gondolier was charming and the starting point was only a short distance from the meeting point (we were escorted). The gondala was shared with another couple - no problem for us (as we bagged the good seat) but not as nice for the other couple.

    Was good They should tell in advance that this is a ride combined with other tourists too Not an issue but we might have booked a private ride

    I booked this last minute and raced to get there on time. Travelling alone. My experience was to start at 3. Someone came down to get our group at about 3.03 and we had a 10 minute walk and wait for the gondola. It was really lovely though and a cheap way to do it without having to pay for an entire gondola yourself where the prices are up around €70 for an hour. If there’s a group of you you’re better off going straight to the gondola operator and splitting the cost.

    Decent ride. Nothing special. Gotta do it in Venice. Organized, on time, and worth the money. Many opportunities for great pictures.

    30 mins is plenty and this is a basic gondola ride, no frills. Location was convenient. Would be better if driver spoke English.

    Relaxing way to begin your tour of Venice. Both small back canals, and the Grand Canal. I do recommend!

    thought our guide would narrate a little about the area. Would not do again, just one of those things you do once in a life time or the experience.
