  • 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!

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!

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

Good for groups, not for couples wanting a romantic ride. You’ll get to see and take great photos during the ride that you can’t on land. Gondoliers are police and good maneuvers on tight spaces. 30 minutes is enough for the pace of the entire ride.

Great experience but the route we were taken on was not as scenic as other gondola routes. Our captain was also rather surly.

Great experience with my daughter. We even liked the gondola traffic jam. Too bad my grandson missed it due to being ill.
