    Great Gondola ride!
    We had an amazing time on this ride. When we arrived there was a long line but this specific reservation got us priority and to the front of the line. The route was perfect and our gondolier was great! Highly recommend. It was private and only included my husband and three children.

    Not worth the bother
    Expensive for what is quite a boring trip. Gondolier did not communicate with us and all we did was travel along one stretch of canal at the mercy of the wake caused by motorized boats

    Just the Best in 2 hours
    WOW! There is so much to see that it's overwhelming. Can't imagine doing this without a guide. We started early and was able to see the highlights of the gallery together with our guide's personal insight. The small group together with audio headsets worked out really well.

    Would never use this company again. No one showed up! Luckily we checked and got in for free, it was the first Monday of the month. Thanks for the full refund Tripadvisor!

    Peaceful and amazing
    The private gondola ride was awesome. My partner and I loved it. Even though we didn't see any of the big main attractions, going through the quiet canals on a private gondola ride together was still nice and peaceful. The gondoliere was also fantastic.

    Disappointing! The ride was 10 minutes less than we paid for. The gondolier was unhappy and rude!
    As other reviewers have mentioned, the "30 minute" ride is actually 20 minutes. So there's that. We went in basically a circle. The Gondolier did not utter one word - didn't point out any sites or describe anything. Not. One. Word. So disappointing.

    Gigi another guide with such knowledge, insight & passion for what he does with a great sense of humour. Another fabulous tour. Avoided the big crowds with the 8 am start & wonderful management & timing. Highly recommended.

    Nothing special
    It was ok. The gondelier wasn’t really engaged. If its a gondola for 4, two relax on a couch and two sit in straight backed chairs. Meh.

    OK but..
    This was an OK ride, however I feel that it doesn't have the spark needed like going out to the Grand Canal. It costs roughly the same amount without the wow factor

    We had a lovely gondola ride with Roberto as our gondolier. He was very informative and knowledgeable about the area having been raised there. I would recommend this tour it was nice to ride privately with only my husband. Thank you Trip Advisor.

    Amazing!
    This is a truly amazing experience you have to do in Venice! Our gondolier was so nice, very chatty telling us about Venetian culture and buildings. So glad I booked! Very easy to find with the co ordinates given on the email.

    Beautiful experience, though confusing enough to find the right place, there are multiple Gondola stands, we waited at one with the correct name at the right time, but when the time for our boat ride came and went we managed to find the correct one. There were many people, mostly tourists, but eventually when we got on the Gondola it was a wonderful experience, I proposed to my Fiancée and she said yes, (of course!) and it was definitely a lovely experience.

    Awesome experience
    Our private gondola ride was better than I expected. Our Gondolier was knowledgeable and very friendly. We learned so much about Venice from him and he answered all our questions. This was the highlight from our time in Venice. I’m so glad we opted for the private ride that went down less crowded canals.
