What people are saying about Venice

Get your tickets earlier in the day to avoid a crowd

Make sure you take your voucher to the travel agency to get your tickets. There is a big crowd later in the day when the gondolas are ready to take you. This is an excellent choice if you don't mind sharing with 4 other people. We had a great time. A nice affordable way to see the canals of Venice in a gondola.

Absolutely brilliant, engaging staff, wouldnt change a thing.

Perfect, much better than paying just to go on a Gondola, staff were really nice and encouraging. You get to have a go at both steering and rowing. The lagoon has lovely views. They provide an umbrella which is a nice touch to avoid the sun. Absolutely loved this experience, perfect thing to do if you're visiting Venice. Great family experience that we will never forget.

This was the #1 highlight of our trip to Italy!

This was fantastic and totally worth the money! My husband and I traveled to Rome, Florence and Venice in July 2018. We were on a budget and didn't want to bust the budget, so went with the "shared" gondola option and then splurged to have the serenade option. The experience was unforgettable and easily the best part of our whole trip! The singer and the man with the accordion had great chemistry and were constantly interacting w/ my husband and I. I thought the 20 mins sounded kinda short, but it ended up being the perfect amount of time. Do it at sunset around 7:30 if possible. Highly recommend this to all my family members and friends, it was simply enchanting and something my husband and I will never forget!

Thoroughly enjoyable outing with great coaches, can’t wait to do it ag

My partner Chris and I are English style rowers-we Row backwards. The Venetian rowing was challenging and fun. The instructors were patient and clear. This was our best activity in Venice. We look forward to doing it again.

Perfect pace, lovely boats and serenading was delicious!

Activity was exactly as described - shared a boat with 4 others but sat with my friend, we headed out on the lagoon with other boats and then into the quieter canals where acoustics were great. The accordion player and singer were first rate and although on another gondola (as expected) we were never far from them and the sound through the narrow canals was magic!
