As you sit back and enjoy the scenery, you'll inevitably become involved in the friendly banter of the gondoliers and their particular Venetian dialect, which is as much a part of Venetian culture as the gondola itself. Pre-book your trip and avoid having to negotiate with the gondolier or stress about details.

    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

What better way to spend an afternoon in Venice and get in the Italian spirit with your friends or family!

    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!

We booked the private gondola ride on the Grand Canal. The meeting point was very well described. The staff on site was very friendly. We had an experienced gondolier (Franco !?) who gave us information about buildings during the trip. I deliberately chose an earlier time (start 9:30 am) so that the channels weren't that full (that's how it was). Don't expect a 30-minute drive on the Grand Canal for this tour. You only drive there for a few minutes, otherwise through smaller and, for us, more beautiful, idyllic canals. Absolutely to be recommended!
