You'll be gently guided by the gondolier through the calm waters of the old city, passing under ancient and imposing bridges and being able to admire the architectural masterworks of Venice.

The tour will let you discover the Basilica della Salute, one of the finest examples of Baroque architecture, which offers a different perspective view according to the point from which it is observed. The Basilica was offered to the Virgin Mary, to pray for the eradication of the plague of the seventeenth century.

  • Lovely tour shared with 2 other couples about 30 minutes but just long enough

  • The people on land were very accommodating. We arrived to our tour late due to traveling so much to get there but they graciously worked us in to the schedule. The gondoliers were not very polite. They didnt help us into the boat, my mother fell getting into the boat and they didnt do much about it. Fortunately, she was okay but that was not very appreciated. Still beautiful.

  • We had 4 people in our group and all the gondolas held 6 people so they put us with two others. It was very crowded and the seating was sparse and uncomfortable. Be prepared no typical singing by the gondola operator. No commentary at all.Also the meeting place was changed and there was some confusion.

  • When you think of a Gondola ride in Venice you picture a romantic, scenic stroll through the waterways... this is not that tour! They line up tons of people, slap stickers on you to mark you as paid and funnel you in like cattle on to gondolas. My husband and I couldn't even sit by each other and when we asked to wait for the next gondola so we could they yelled at us telling us we couldn't wait. I was livid most of the ride. Not to mention the gondolier looked irritated with us and he was rowing as fast as he could through the canals passing other gondolas. A tourist from another gondola actually yelled out at our gondolier to slow down. It was dreadful! Sure the views were beautiful but we enjoyed our private water taxi ride more then this! I would encourage anyone considering a gondola ride to pay extra for a private one because this one felt like a giant tourist trap. I hated it.

  • We booked a Gondola Ride in Venice with Viator Tours and we had a Wonderful time. The guide met us exactly where they told us he would at the correct time. We were in a very small group and got to meet some wonderful couples who shared the ride with us. It was so much fun I wanted it to continue for much longer. One of the highlights of our trip.

  • This is the one thing you have to do when in venice, and well worth the money, you are with other tourists but the experience is still what you would expect

  • Super trip, a must if visiting Venice just for the experience!

  • youre better off paying 80 euro for a gondola ride directly from one of the vendors along the canals. the gondola ride was shared with a total of 6 people. my boyfriend and I were not even allowed to sit next to eachother in the gondola I sat along the side, he sat at the tip in the front, since they had to distribute the weight in the gondola. when we asked to wait for another so we could at least sit next to eachother, they denied the request saying we knew it was a shared gondola. I would not recommend booking this unless you're willing to not only share a gondola with others, but also risk not even sitting next to one another.

  • Just a silent ride through the smaller canals. But a gotta do in Venice.

  • Was brilliant!! Just enough time and met some lovely people on our gondola . They are beautiful made. Guide didn't say much but was pleasant and friendly. Trip started on time.
