This was one of the highlights of the trip for me and my family. We were serenaded by a male singer and a woman who played the accordion. Both were very good. One of the songs was Volare,and the singer encouraged us to join in the chorus, which we were happy to do. It was a lot of fun and a great way to end our trip. Some may consider it cheesy and expensive, but when in Venice...
This was one of the planned highlights of our trip and we had invested in it accordingly. We found the meeting point and waited to meet an agent who took us to a boarding point where we waited for a while to get to our gondola. It took a while. When we got on the trip was special, we had a guitarist and a lady singer who serenaded us on a half hour tour through the canals. We did feel privileged and special whilst we were there
The trip was poor value for the money . Paid for 30 minutes of singing and received only about 4 songs
My wife and I were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary so decided what better way than a gondola ride with a serenade. It was amazing...with an accordian player and a singer, my wife and I and the gondolier we passed through the quiet canals of Venice. People on the bridges we passed under took pictures and cheered and some even tossed long stemmed roses to us...truly an amazing experience!
Amazing! Worth every penny. Expensive but worth it. It was pouring rain as we walked to the meeting point. As soon as we arrived at the campo the rain let up and blue skies arrived. The office was closed, but they had a sign with my name on it notifying the meeting time would be a few minutes later. No problem, because there is a wonderful bar right next door. My wife and I had a nice chardonnay for 5 euro total... excellent. Our guide arrived and led us to the departure point for the gondala. As previous commentators have said, try to stay off your phone/camera. As you glide down the canals, every tourist on every bridge will be taking your picture / video... my wife felt like a celebrity. It's only 40 min / 4 songs, but you have your own private gondalier, accordian player, and singer. Work some extra and splurge.... YOLO
