There are 5 persons to a boat. You get off the Grand Canal and go on side canals. There is no talking by the gondolier other than Hello. Staff is friendly. Identifying where to meet is vague. Ended up getting the tickets at the desk for ticket sales and waiting. The ride was fun and picturesque. Interesting to see them maneuver the canals.

If you want to experience a gondola without the expense this is a great option, we had another couple In with us. We went down some side canals, but not under the bridge of sighs which the gondolas going from St Mark’s Square did. Gondolier did not speak to us and spent most of time on his phone.

To pay for one person or a maximum of 2, a short tour is perfect but enough to make you want to go on a gondola ride. In case of being 4 or more people, it is better to haggle over the price with any gondolier who for 80 euros will take you all and through more channels. pretty for sure.
