Beautiful experience of a mythical gondola ride to do absolutely 30 min is very good and the ride in a group of 5 quite bearable Attention the meeting point is at the level of the boxes for the public boat and you have to wait for the guide who will take you leads to gondolas

Amazing experience! Lovely tour of the canal! I was a solo traveler and shared with 4 others. Everyone was so pleasant. Our Gondola driver didn’t speak at all which was a bit disappointing! We did see others having a great time and singing but that’s the look of the draw!

It worked great with the reservation. Started on time. Journey took about 30 minutes and went through a couple of canals via Canale Grande. Was great!

Had a great time, lovely to experience whilst here in Venice. Definitely a must!!

Beautiful . A trip to Venice isn't complete without a Gondola ride.
