What people are saying about Grand Canal

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 experience but with a minor nuance..

I have to say that overall the experience was really nice but getting to the actual gondola was kind of messy because our host literally made us run from the meeting point to the place of the gondola so we could get ahead of other groups. This was not very nice because my wife had a hurt knee so having to rush her to get to the gondola was not a good experience. After getting to the gondola the actual ride was lovely and I highly recommend experience.

When in Venice, it’s just something you have to do (once).

Just a pleasurable ride in back canals and the Grand Canal. The booking stated ‘up to 6 passengers’ and my wife and I were joined by two other couples. It was a quiet ride but very scenic and, of course, unique to Venice. I enjoyed the ride but due to the cost, will not do it a second time.

This was a very affordable way for a family to take a gondola ride.

The tour was described well. The meeting spot was easy to find. The cost was affordable for a family to take a gondola ride. Expect to get a ride and not a description of where you are or what you are seeing. The gondolier did not speak to us at all but overall this was a fun experience.

Shared gondola ride. Still a must do in Venice!!

We (2 of us) did this gondola ride and shared the ride with two other couples. Still a great experience & still got the great pics. Directions for meeting point were very simple and easy to find. Was happy to save some £ by doing this tour!
