Highlights
  • For centuries Venetians have used the gondola as their main mode of transportation and now you can enjoy your own private boat – it's the best way to see Venice
  • The gondolier will pilot you through serene canals and through part of the world-famous and more expansive Grand Canal. You’ll see so much of The City of Water on this 30-minute trip
  • Enjoy an authentically Venetian experience at the best price – other gondola rides can set you back hundreds!
Description

Make your way through storied Venice and feel like a true Venetian as you stretch out in your authentic gondola. Hundreds of years of history float right before your eyes while the seasoned gondolier steers you through watery streets. It’s a must-do in La Serenissima.

In a city with no roads, boats rule supreme. Locals might favor motors, but everyone needs to experience Venice by gondola at least once. Sit back and feel your cares melt away as your stripy-shirted gondolier glides you through a maze of waterways, before joining the central Grand Canal.

Your nimble craft will be weaving around bigger boats, so watch out for floating ambulances, delivery vans and fire trucks jockeying for position. Don't worry – your captain knows exactly what they're doing, and makes sure you'll get a tour to remember.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience just asks for a perfect picture. Luckily for you, with just six other people on board (including the gondolier), you have more than enough space for a selfie.

Don’t be surprised if you attract a little envy on this voyage. Most tourists easily part with a hundred bucks for a short gondola ride, while you’ll be parading over the water for a pittance. But that’s our secret… shhh!

The instructions were perfect! Check in was straightforward and simple.
The gondolier did not engage with us passengers, simply talked to the other gondoliers and smoked. However, my family loved the ride and they were elated that we got to share this experience.
It’s a kitschy tourist thing to do for a reason! It’s fun and different!

It would have been a more enjoyable experience if our guide had told us a little about Venice.Maybe shared a joke or something.Otherwise it was ok.

Tour company was great. However gondoliers in general take zero pride in their jobs. Our gondolier would not smile (forget singing) and looked totally unhappy to be working. I’m aware that riding a gondola is very touristic but come on, this is your life’s work! Have some pride!

It’s worth for the money we paid. Good experience.

Less than half hour. No narration or singing. Fine for what it was and pleased didn’t pay more.
