Nice trip
, May 2022
Nice trip. Older gondola and not a very friendly gondolier. Toured some back canals without much character and a short ride on the lagoon. Ok trip but better experiences available in other areas of Venice.

Our beautiful red, black and gold old world embellished gondola was gorgeous manned by Maximillian, a 4th generation son in the business. Our ride was absolutely enjoyable as we glided our way unde bridges and saw landmarks of beautiful Venice! It was well worth the money and a must to do!
Sit back and enjoy the...

Sit back and enjoy the ride, don't forget to look up as the architecture can be missed. A little awkward to find departure point but head towards the high end designer shops and you can't miss it.

Gondola ride checked off the list
, Feb 2022
I think the gondoliers are in competition with one another as we were directed by one to follow him only to be shouted at by another to get in his gondola. We should have stocked with the first one. Zero interaction with the gondolier, but he did shout at people along the way and was on the phone a good portion of our ride. Gondola ride - check. That’s what you’re paying for and nothing else. Otherwise, skip this vendor and go with another.
An unmissable experience in Venice!

The gondola ride was really special and added a nice dimension to seeing Venice you don’t get by foot. Our gondolier Giovanni was great and showed us some landmarks along the way. Highly recommend!

Awesome tour guide. As we went down the canal he point out points of interest and information on gondoliers. A must do with this company.
Good service, unbelievable experience.

It was a horrible weather when it was our turn. We didn’t even know if we were going to be able to do the ride. However as soon as we hopped on, Marco made us feel like it was a sunny day. The góndola kiosk is easy to find and they were very friendly.
Most uncomfortable day.

At the start, I move a little and the tour guide, said “that we need to take a training before we get into the Gondola” become we don’t know how to ride in the gondola. He’s right; we don’t know how to ride on the gondola, but at the start he can mentioned that we can’t move in the gondola for safety reasons, and that will be OK. However he was angry and the way he dictate that we need a training it was very rude, therefore we will NEVER take a Gondola ride on this company. Thx.

We booked a private gondola ride and our gondalier was Diego. He was very friendly, pointed out some key spots to check out along the ride and also in the city in our spare time. And he even sang happy birthday to me in Italian :)

Beautiful , relaxing ride , seemed longer than 30 minutes and no waiting time . We rode it the day after the initial booked day due to rain the day we planned it . Called that day to rescheduled and they accommodated us .
