I really enjoyed this, especially for the money! The normal gondola ride varies between €60-80 for the same amount of time! (Talk about daytime robbery, eh?!) I shared the ride with 2 couples and another solo person. It was a short +/- 10min walk -with a guide of course- from the meeting point to the gondoliers. We started off on the Grand Canal, then navigated into the smaller canals, and then back to the starting point. I loved how all gondoliers seem to know each other, regardless of their placement. Our guy was chatting to every single one who we passed. A whole different world. I really loved the vibe.
The gondola ride lasted 30 mins. There was a 10 min walk from the meeting point shown while booking. That was a little convenient walking far in the hot sun. Apart from that, the service and the Gondola ride was amazing! Worth the value. Recommend this if you traveling alone or as a pair. A single gondola cost 80 euros if you were to book on your own.
The “hidden canals” itinerary was very charming, I suggest tourist to come and visit Venice in a low season. The gondola driver was very nice, and answered to all our questions. I highly suggest to book a tour like this
That was a very pleasant and enjoyable trip, wonderful, amazing experience. I will recommend to anyone.
We enjoyed. The seafaring darling was very communicative, kind and everybody was helpful. It was great.
