The gondola ride was really fun. We did not expect a singer; he had a beautiful voice. My wife enjoyed the experience, which met the objective; as part of our honeymoon trip.

The gondola ride was really fun. We did not expect a singer; he had a beautiful voice. My wife enjoyed the experience, which met... the objective; as part of our honeymoon trip. more

Bert

This website has a BIG problem that the service provider COULD NOT provide night trip in March, maybe it is too dark and unsafe t...o ship after 6pm in Venice...nevertheless, the service provider agree to let us join the 3:30pm trip fortunately...although I need to change my trip schedule...
Anyway, we have had a great and romantic Gondola experience! The musician and the singer are fantastic!

The big problem here is that they don't tell you that you DONT get the gondola to your self. You are with 8 other people pack...ed full. The saranade isn't even on your gondola. You travel 45 minutes with 12 other gondolas and it's the luck of the draw that he's on yours or not. Not as romantic as I hoped. Way to many selfies!

If you want to just get the gist of a gondola ride than this is right for you. If you are looking for a romantic 45 minutes and want to sit in the velvet Chairs vs. on a make-shift seat this is your ride! :). Over all I give it a 2 star review

Jayson

We went to the meeting place the only Godola spot had no one there asked every Gondola place if they knew where it was cause I wa...s afraid we had gone to the wrong place vand no one could tell us. Went again the following day to the one in campo Santo Stefano and this time a person there but when I show him the voucher he said No not us go to Santa Maria del Giglii maybe there would not even look to see that the meeting place was Campo Santo Stefano, Very disappoint we lost our money. more
