What people are saying about Grand Canal

Good canal tour but confusing logistics.

The canal tour was great and was a quick way to see the city by boat. Overall, I enjoyed the tour for the views that it provided. However, the logistics of the tour were a nightmare. After purchasing tickets, I was informed that I should go to a meeting spot and that I would be picked up there. The site also stated that a mobile voucher would be okay to use. That was not the case at all. You actually have to go to the ticketing office and show your mobile voucher there. The person working there will then give you a physical voucher and will tell you which boat to board. That was 100% not clear, but the company and workers remained adamant that it was. Because of the confusion, my family and I missed our tour, but luckily we were able to join the next one thanks to a helpful member of the company. So as long as you follow my instructions (and not the instructions on the website / confirmation e-mail) you'll be fine.

Terribly organised but gondola ride is a must

The ride itself last around 40 mins and was in a gondola shared with 4 others. It's a beautiful way to see Venice and was a true highlight of the trip BUT the organisation was appalling. We booked in advance and expected to be in a queue for 5-10mins before boarding. In reality we were herded like cattle with at least 40 other people to the departure point and had to stand in a crowd and battle our way on to the first available boat. There was no queuing system and no order. Given that this was arranged in advance and the providers new the number of bookings made there could have been more order and much better customer service.

Great value for money and enjoyable experience.

I booked this trip for both me and my boyfriend to go on a shared gondola, we both thought sharing would ruin the experience of the gondola and it would be less romantic. But we shared our gondola with two other couples, both of which were very nice. The route we took was lovely, and the experience was overall very enjoyable and authentic. Would definitely recommend.

A lovely way to enjoy the beautiful scenery in Venice

The meeting point was difficult to find so we missed our time spot. However, the organisers let us join the afternoon tour (and others had rearranged to other days). We were sat with others in the gondola but that was absolutely fine - once your gondola sets off, you're too busy admiring the scenery to notice those around you! It was very enjoyable.

Nice tour through small canals around San Moisè Church

I enjoyed the silence in the small canals in the busiest part of town. Had the 'best' seat in the gondola, but taking photo's straight ahead was difficult because of the other people in the boat. I had the 17:15 tour, with the sun already setting so it was very nice.
