Wonderful experience!! The Gondoliers and Musicians were amazing. Venice is a beautiful place to say the least. This tour truly gave an unforgettable experience with sights from a completely different point of view.
Thank you so much,

It was our 30th wedding anniversary. I mean this is the quintessential Venice experience right? It was great! It would have been nicer if it was just the 2 of us on the gondola but it was fantastic nonetheless. The artists did not disappoint. So much fun, so corny, so romantic!
So romantic! I bought this package as my husband birthday present and we enjoyed it so much!
Thank you for this amazing experience! We'll never forget our romantic gondola ride with beautiful Italian songs... We got lucky - got the love seat, and the musicians were in our gondola. Unforgettable!
Everything we expected and more
Good ride through Venice canals
Gondola ride excellent and we were lucky enough to have the singer on our gondola. Would recommend the ride.

Highlight of the trip! We were serenaded through the canals of venice, fortunate enough to have the musician and singer in our Gondola. Highly recommend this trip. Wonderful friendly staff and a great unforgettable experience.
this was so much fun, really felt like we had the Venice experience
Excellent time, fun, beautiful cenary.
Fantastic. Everything I hoped it would be.
Just fabulous!Everyone needs to do it when in Venice!
It a must do, very cost effective way to do the gondola ride with music and singing
The gondola ride was the highlight of my stay in Venice! Definitely worth doing. We scored the lover's seat and the singer in our boat. There are usually 5-6 gondolas sailing around together. Felt very, very special. Do this tour as close to sunset as possible! Then go have gelato at Groms.
The best tour ever, we'll do it again, aviator is very well represented.
This was a beautiful evening with an amazing accordion player and singer. We were fortunate to have the musicians in our boat and our gondola driver was whistling and singing along. As we did the evening tour, the sun was creating a beautiful sky. With some time on the large canal and some on the smaller, side canals, we had a wonderful ride.
We had 1 gondola with a singer and accordion player, and about 6 other gondolas. Each gondola carried 6 persons. The singer was very good, we had a good time.
Wonderful experience made sweeter by us being fortunate and getting the king and queen seats, the serenading was perfect and just a shame it was only 35 minutes
One of the highlights of Venice.
Magical for our 10th wedding anniversary! We were so lucky to have the singer in our boat! Beautiful atmosphere through the whole boat ride. Very well organised and a must if this is your first time in Venice like us. Well worth it - so glad we did it.
Very nice for the price. If you are looking for something romantic or special pay more money and get a smaller group. If you just want to experience it and enjoy other people this is the way to go.
Overall a cheap alternative to taking a Gondola ride on the side of one of the canals. The music was great and the trip lasted about 45 minutes. Great scenery and out boat only had 2 other people in it. If you are looking for romantic however this is not the option for you, although my wife and I both enjoyed it. If you are looking to check a gondola ride off your bucket list this is it.
