Know More about this tour

Head to Campo San Luca in central Venice either during the day or at night. whatever time suits you best, and then hop aboard your elegant gondola boat. With just your group (2-4 people maximum) on board, plus your own gondolier, your boat will glide away into the waters of the Grand canal.

Once the main form of transport around the beautiful water-logged city of Venice, gondolas have more or less been replaced by the vaporetti (water buses) for getting quickly around. But nothing beats a pleasant glide around Venice by traditional gondola boat, passing the city's Gothic palazzos and elegant bridges at a gentle pace.

Look out at the hustle and bustle of the ancient Grand canal, seeing vaporetti, water taxis and other gondolas passing by, and then cruise along some of the quieter canals that act as side streets through the city. Sit back and relax as your gondolier serenades you with a song, and soak up the romantic atmosphere of Venice from the canals.

After 35 minutes out on the water, glide back to the start point where your Gondola ride finishes.

    This tour couldn't have been any better. My husband and I were very pleased and it made our anniversary fantastic and very memorable. I highly recommend this tour. The singer and accordion player were fantastic. It was the highlight of our time in Venice.

    This was everything we hoped for and more. We brought our own bottle of prosecco. The musica was great.

    To see again Venezia after 28 year was a dream come true! Cannot describe the amazing feeling of a gondola ride with serenade. You just should do it!

    This was a "bucket list" experience for me. My husband, 9 year old son and I finished our 10 day Italy trip with 3 days in Venice as a celebration of my 50th birthday and our 20 year wedding anniversary. We booked a private gondola ride to depart about an hour before sunset (for the best lighting), with an onboard musician (accordion player) and singer. We met at the Bucintoro Viaggi Agency about 20 minutes before our scheduled timeslot and were led to our departure point about 10 minutes away, on foot of course. I'm an emotional person to begin with, but when the music and singing started, I was just a puddle! I cried almost the entire time. It was so incredibly romantic and breathtaking. The weather had cooled down to a perfect temperature and the sunlight hitting the buildings and the water were so picturesque- like a postcard.The musicians were happy to take some photos of us throughout the experience and even took requests. "O Sole Mio" is so typical, but I asked for it, and boy- did they deliver!We glided along the smaller canals and onto the Grand Canal as well, so we got some amazing photos and left with an incredible once-in-a-lifetime memory to last forever.Thank you for making our dream come true.

    This tour was definitely the highlight of my trip. I am unable to express how wonderful this experience was. The singer was amazing. He had a beatiful and astonishing voice. The musician was excellent. They both were extremelly friendly and attentive. It was a little pricy, but it was worth every penny! I will be back for more!!!!

    This was one of the highlights of the trip for me and my family. We were serenaded by a male singer and a woman who played the accordion. Both were very good. One of the songs was Volare,and the singer encouraged us to join in the chorus, which we were happy to do. It was a lot of fun and a great way to end our trip. Some may consider it cheesy and expensive, but when in Venice...

    My husband surprised me while in Venice with this thoughtful journey through Venice's canals. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I will never forget it!

    This was one of the planned highlights of our trip and we had invested in it accordingly. We found the meeting point and waited to meet an agent who took us to a boarding point where we waited for a while to get to our gondola. It took a while. When we got on the trip was special, we had a guitarist and a lady singer who serenaded us on a half hour tour through the canals. We did feel privileged and special whilst we were there

    The trip was poor value for the money . Paid for 30 minutes of singing and received only about 4 songs

    My wife and I were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary so decided what better way than a gondola ride with a serenade. It was amazing...with an accordian player and a singer, my wife and I and the gondolier we passed through the quiet canals of Venice. People on the bridges we passed under took pictures and cheered and some even tossed long stemmed roses to us...truly an amazing experience!
