What people are saying about Grand Canal

This was the #1 highlight of our trip to Italy!

This was fantastic and totally worth the money! My husband and I traveled to Rome, Florence and Venice in July 2018. We were on a budget and didn't want to bust the budget, so went with the "shared" gondola option and then splurged to have the serenade option. The experience was unforgettable and easily the best part of our whole trip! The singer and the man with the accordion had great chemistry and were constantly interacting w/ my husband and I. I thought the 20 mins sounded kinda short, but it ended up being the perfect amount of time. Do it at sunset around 7:30 if possible. Highly recommend this to all my family members and friends, it was simply enchanting and something my husband and I will never forget!

Expensive and very touristy but worth it

We were one of over 100 people who turned up for our gondola slot, but the wait wasn't as long as we originally expected and the lady in charge tried to ensure that all couples got to sit in the back (we weren't expecting that). The trip was very touristy and lacking in romance (our view and thus photos included an American family sat in the front of the boat!) but for those of us who can't afford the €300 price tag of a private gondola ride it was a good compromise. We got to see Venice from a totally different angle and the atmosphere was very calm and peaceful on the smaller canals.

The Basillica and Doges tour was spectacular but skip the boat ride...

We really enjoyed the tour of the Basillica and Doges Palace. The guide was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. She was also very good at answering all our questions. The boat tour was another matter. I would not waste my time . The boat was small and unless you were willing to stand for the whole tour, the sight lines were miserable. The tour leader was very unpleasant and the entire time I was on the boat I wished it was over. So uncomfortable .

Perfect pace, lovely boats and serenading was delicious!

Activity was exactly as described - shared a boat with 4 others but sat with my friend, we headed out on the lagoon with other boats and then into the quieter canals where acoustics were great. The accordion player and singer were first rate and although on another gondola (as expected) we were never far from them and the sound through the narrow canals was magic!

Get your tickets earlier in the day to avoid a crowd

Make sure you take your voucher to the travel agency to get your tickets. There is a big crowd later in the day when the gondolas are ready to take you. This is an excellent choice if you don't mind sharing with 4 other people. We had a great time. A nice affordable way to see the canals of Venice in a gondola.
