I wouldn't book this experience again and just hop on a gondola in middle of Venice. We didn't get to see anything as we just went around the block

I loved the overall experience. The gondola was beautiful, it was a smooth ride, and great steering through narrow, busy waterways. The only issue we had was the gondoleer kept spitting, which would not have been a huge issue until I got spit on. As a woman, being spit on is one of the worst things that one could do.

It was very short - not quite a full 30 minutes, so quite expensive for a private ride. The gondolier was charming and knowledgeable - very nice.

Our gondolier was amazing. He sang, explained landmarks and took photos of us. I would recommend the private tour. It was lovely.

You should have provided options of selecting place while booking It's too far from my hotel Many gondala there around our hotel I felt I dud a mistake by booking online. It's very expensive compared to onsite direct booking. The Gondala driving guys are not courteous. Overall not a pleasant experience to me through this website

Gondolas were once reserved for the upper classes of Venice only. Although the number of gondolas in the city has seen a significant decline over the years, they continue to be one of the primary means of transport within the city, especially along the Grand Canal. Besides serving as a means of transport, gondolas are a common sight in many of the city’s parades and rowing competitions.

Stretching from the basin at San Marco to the lagoon near the Santa Lucia station, the Grand Canal, as the name suggests, is the most colorful and active water-traffic corridor in Venice. Since it passes through the central district of the city, there are many attractions to see on either side of the channel. The beautiful Rialto Bridge, Canal Grande, and Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute span the canal. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the Fenice Theatre, which are situated beside the Grand Canal, clearly boast of the ancient splendor of 18th-century Venice. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is a museum of modern art that houses sculptures and artwork by American modernists and Italian futurists.

Why you shouldn't miss this

Sit back and relax as the gondola moves forward gently through the Grand Canal of the charming city of Venice. See the fantastic Canal Grande, Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute as you serenely glide below it. Admire the intricate pieces of art at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, which is a museum of modern art. Marvel at the Fenice Theatre and its academic classical style of architecture, which is in stark contrast to the surrounding Romanesque and Baroque Venetian buildings. Experience the magic of traveling through one of Europe’s most beautiful cities in an authentic Venetian gondola!
