Great deal

Great deal, my kids and I loved it. Went through charming small side canals and briefly entered Gran Canal near the stunning Rialto Bridge. Bonus, the people we shared the gondola with were very nice. If you want to check gondola ride in Venice off your list for the experience, this is definitely the one. If you want a personalized enthusiastic or romantic tour, this is not the one.

Underwhelming

Booking was simple and the women at the meeting place was very nice. But the actual gondola ride was very underwhelming. The gondolas were beautiful, but that’s about it. The gondolier didn’t say one word the entire trip, which was closer to 23-25 minutes and not 30. The scenery was prob the most boring canals I’ve seen in Venice. And we simply went through a few small canals out to the grand canal, turned around, and went back the same way. Again, very underwhelming.

Not worth it

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

When in Venice, do Gondola

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 !

Dont waste your money

If you are a couple and cant budget the private gondola then dont bother with this. 6 people ride so a 1/3 chance you will sit next to your loved one. In our experience we were completely separated. If you want the true experience you need to budget for the private tour. Dont waste your money on this !

Gondala ride

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.

Gondola ride was lovey but finding the place was difficult - asked around for ages no one knew. Directions in the email would have been helpful - tip it’s no where near the water!

Only one flaw, but nothing to do with the tour itself

This is done in a group, so if like me you were by yourself, the total enjoyment of the trip is affected by who else gets in the gondola with you. However, this is nothing to do with the tour itself, which proved to be cheaper for me than a single gondola ridwe
