Easy to find the meeting point but it is quite a walk to meet the gondolier. Approximately 25 minutes on the water enjoying the small canals which are busy with a short adventure into the grand canal. No interaction from our gondalier and expecting tips as you disembark. We enjoyed the experience as a 4; however if there are less in your party then you are loaded to fill the gondalier (up to 5) and therefore maybe sitting sideways for the trip and might not get that experience and photo your were expecting.

Very efficient staff and easy to find meeting place. Short walk to the gondola and considering quite a few others had booked for the same time, it was very quick to get us all placed on the gondola. The gondolier was very friendly and amusing. Lovely ride along the canals network and onto the grand canal. Well worth the money to experience seeing Venice from a gondola.

For those who have little time and do not want to spend a significant amount, it is ideal. You cannot visit Venice and not take a beautiful gondola ride. And if you are lucky enough like me to find a nice gondolier available for any explanation, this is the top
