We Took the First Gondola Out in the Morning... Perfect Timing to Beat the Las Vegas Heat and Fun Way to Start the Day!!! Our Gondolier(ess) was Awesome and Knowledgeable... You Really Feel as if You are in Italy!!! Definitely Recommend!!! (Remember to Go to Madame Tussaud's Museum First to Get Your Gondola Validation)

The wax figures of Madame Tussauds are truly remarkable. Yes..some are creepy and a few are way off but majority of the figures are spot on. The gondola ride is EVERYTHING!! The Gondoliers are professional and/or trained singers with phenomenal personalities

The wax museum was great and the boat ride was icing on the cake. Had a great time.

very good and cute. the only complaint is the time.it is too short ride.

beautiful and the worker on the boat was very talented
