We did this flotilla gondola ride on our honeymoon. It was a fun and very neat way to see and enjoy the city and get a real appreciation for the canals of Venice. Our singer was funny and charming and there was an extremely talented accordionist too. Easy to find and very worth the experience!
If you really want to enjoy a serenade, book a private one. This "group" serenade was almost a joke. If you can't afford the private option, maybe just a more historical ride would be your best.
This was a great experience. The line was organized when we arrived and at 6:30 they put groups into each boat. We lucked out and got the singer/guitar player on our boat so it was a lovely ride. We rode in a group of 6 Gondola and it was a nice "spin around the block" and lasted exactly 30 minutes. It felt safe to do it through this tour vs someone on the street.
Amazing gondola ride through the grand canal and into smaller waterways through the city. Lovely serenade and acordian player, recommend to any couple visiting Venice!
My exceptions were a gondola ride with my husband and to be serenaded. Well, there were 4 other people in our Gondola and 8 Gondolas with ONE person serenading all EIGHT gondolas and he was in the last Gondola. NOT romantic not worth paying over 100 dollars. and 2 people walked up on got in their own Gondola for $80.00, though not serenaded.
Highly recommend this trip. The serenade was lovely. We experienced this at night and found it to be the perfect time.
This trip was very nice. Expect to stand in a line, even though you have a reservation. Also expect to be with about 4 other people in your boat.(Those in our boat were a little loud and rowdy) I would recommend this trip, as the views were lovely, and the ride was long. It was great when it got dark, and the narrow canals were lit. We really enjoyed ourselves. Also, be sure to find the location early, as it was a little tricky to find.
We took a serenaded gondola ride around the Grande Canal and little side canals at twilight. The children, including teenagers, in our party loved it and pleaded to go again during our stay. Don't miss this, great value!
I would have been happier if the singer had been in costume instead of street clothing.But, it was enjoyable.
Totally disorganized. We couldn't find the specific gondola we were supposed to go to so instead we just hired one and got completely ripped off.
The Gondola ride and Sernade was beautiful. However the people who helped us get on the Gandola's were rude and the queing system was confusing and not explained propelry. Me and my mum were annoyed and confused as we asked the staff and they just pointed and said sit anywhere and wait in a very rude way.
We enjoyed this relaxing ride thru the canals. Our driver was knowledgeable about the area and he was very sweet to explain the buildings.
