  • i had a great time. the best time.

  • This was just fun and enjoyable. No tour guide, just a singing Gondalier! You're in Venice, this is a must!

  • It says 30 mins gondola ride but it was less than 30 mins. I thought you will be able to see places that cant be reached by water taxi/speed boat. I was expecting that we will pass through the bridge of sighs but we just went to the other side of the canal and back on the same route.

  • Alas, this tour did not live up to our expectations. the route taken by the Gondoliers was boring and very backstreet, and there were a line of gondolas all following one another with very little attention to the enjoyment of their customers. I am sure all gondola rides are not like this one, or maybe we just chose the wrong day. John R.

  • We had a nice time in the gondola ride. The voucher stating 30-35 ride, but our journey only lasted 20 mins.

  • A very large group was booked at the same time. It took quite a while for the tour rep to check everyone in. Then we all walked to the gondolas, and again, it took quite a while to get everyone into the gondolas. It was raining, which may have changed things, but the ride was extremely short after two long waits. It felt like we just went around the block and were done. We were in one big line of gondolas the whole tour. We did not enter the main canal at all. The energy and the enthusiasm of the gondoliers interacting was fun, but overall, this excursion fell short of our expectations.

  • Pleasant ride, easy to find meeting point

  • A little confusing on which boat we should ride.

  • Ok for the experience

  • Excellent - will use Viator again - no hassel all worked out very well.
