What to expect
Gondolas have been used to navigate Venice’s watery ways for more than 1,500 years and are still locally handcrafted using time-honored methods. Your romantic journey aboard one of these traditional vessels begins at Campo San Luca in central Venice, where you’ll board a private gondola and meet your friendly gondolier. Choose from an afternoon or evening departure to suit your schedule. Relax into the comfortable seats as your standing gondolier skillfully navigates the famed Grand Canal. Soak up the passing scenery of Gothic palaces and historic homes as you glide beneath stone bridges and into the quieter canals of Venice’s backstreets. To add to the enchanting atmosphere, an on-board singer and musician (or, in some cases, your gondolier) will serenade you with a selection of Italian ballads. Musicians are usually guitarists or accordion players. After 35 memorable minutes, say farewell to your gondolier back at the original departure point and continue on your own Venetian adventure with amore in your heart. Price listed is per person based on four passengers per boat.

A special treat
Dec 2019 • Family
With many Gondola ride choices available, I find this one is very unique. You have musician riding with you. The singer will sing beautiful songs while we are enjoying the ride. As we arrived early than the time we originally booked, they helped to move the ride to 45 minutes earlier so that we can ride with sunset.

Touristy but very memorable
Dec 2019 • Family
We had such an excellent time! Yes it is slightly corny and touristy, but the music as you navigate the canals at night is simply amazing! Definitely one of our most memorable experiences to date!

Gondola ride with serenade
Aug 2019 • Couples
Although pricey we got 15% off with trip advisor and shared the cost between the four of us. We had looked forward to this gondola ride for months and it didn’t let us down. We had picked some songs to request, but that all went out of the window as the musicians started their set. The singers Voice was fantastic and their choice of songs was perfect. The guitarist was so talented and played a beautiful version of. ‘Lara’s theme’ from Dr Zhivago. They sang played and chatted to us throughout our ride. People on the bridges waved and clapped as we went past. The Gondolier was a real gentleman and expertly helped us on an off the Gondola. This ride far exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend it, as it really was the highlight of our holiday.

Private Gondola tour with serenade
Jul 2019 • Family
Just got back from Venice for my 50th birthday celebration. This tour exceeded my expectations. Dana, the singer has a very powerful voice . She was fun and interactive . The accordion player was very talented. This tour is a little expensive but truly worth it for the entire unforgettable experience which was enjoyed by the entire family and that included my husband and 2 teenage boys. Do not hesitate.

Traditionally good
It was a nice night for a gondola ride and my wife and I and our 18 year old twins has a wonderful time. Music was charming and set the scene as we traveled through the small canals of Venice. Well worthb it, considering it is the thing to do, to gain a unique perspective of life in Venice in the 1500's. Try to block out the rest of the tourists snapping photos of your group. Only complaint, a little short.

Touristy in the best of ways!
Mar 2019 • Family
We absolutely loved our sunset gondola tour through Venice’s charming canals. Yes, it’s touristy. Yes, some of the canals are smelly. Yes, there are lots of other people in other canals. But ... to be serenaded as you glide through Venice’s waterways is truly magical. Our singer and accompanying accordionist were fantastic!. Go at sunset for spectacular views.

One of Favorite Honeymoon Memories
Sep 2018 • Couples
This was an unbelievably AMAZING experience and our favorite Venetian booking. Yes, it's A LOT of money... however, I promise you won't be disappointed. The private gondola ride with serenade was worth every penny. The accordion player was fantastic and the vocalist (male tenor) had a voice like Andrea Bocelli! Every nearby gondola videotaped our entertainers and groups gathered on bridges to get a glimpse of the amazing performers. My husband was blown away and so happy I had arranged this for our last night (at sunset). It was the perfect way to end our honeymoon stay in Venice. Highly, highly recommended.

We were so excited for this ride and planned many things around it as well as had something special planned during it. We showed up to the meeting point 1 minute past 7:30 after getting lost. I called the contact number, emergency number, and guide number multiple times on our way to try to inform the company and NO ONE ANSWERED any of the numbers that they provided. We waited outside the travel agency for half an hour, which of course was closed. No one from the company even tried to contact me. And all other boats for the evening were sold out. So we left Venice without this experience.

A lovely romantic activity with the woman I love. We took this gondola trip at night adding to the atmosphere. A bit pricey but worth it.
