First of all, I would like to thank the gondolier who led us for 30 minutes to the history of water, buildings, events, personalities from the world of culture or the Venetian aristocracy that made VENICE a good place to visit at least once in life. The company that takes care of the organization is as appreciated, as in the profit of the big requests it pleases everyone.

We did the tour in January and was quite calm and enjoyable ride. Me and my husband shared the gondola with 2 other people( 4 in total)The Gondoliere was a very friendly guy. Tour last around 30 minutes in total and we were able to see the some small canals and part of Grand Canal. For the price we paid was worth the experience.

Short gondola ride, which leaves from the Grand Canal to discover some little-known but beautiful corners of Venice. Sure, it can happen in the company of strangers and it's not ideal if you want to go on an intimate tour with your partner, but you just need to know it and it doesn't detract from the beauty of the experience.
