Not as romantic as the photo, but an amazing once in a lifetime experience. About 15 min on the grand canal - which is more than enough - think I-95 or I-5 ! then down some of the smaller canals for another half hour which are a delightful trip. The serenade was wonderful. The trip length was just right. Highly recommended.
We had the accordion player and the singer in our gondola! It was such a nice ride. Definitely a must do in Venice!
Fantastic, would do again!
Great fun. Well worth doing.
This was well worth it!
The singing was marvelous.
It was a fun tour ...
Really enjoyed our gondola ride with viator. It was on time, I also got reminders from viator which was great. The serenade was great. I would highly recommend.
IT WAS A FAB EXPERIENCE FROM START TO FINISH, WELL WORTH THE MONEY.
If you can do it this is a great experience. I highly recommend it. Our scheduled time was not totally correct and we waited for over an hour so beware of that but they noticed we waited and let us in first. It was fun and lovely.
Very romantic and unique.
The Gondola ride was awesome. The Serenade from the singer was moving. We hoped the ride could be longer because it was so beautiful. Of course I'll recommend!
Highly recommend this - it was an unforgettable experience indeed. A 'must-do' activity in Venice :-
Gondola Ride and Serenade was awesome. Great gondolier, good route, and good serenade!
Excellent tour! Is a great way to start your trip in Venice. The serenade was well worth it. Definitely recommend.
I thought this might be cheesy, but it was really fun! I'm very glad we did this and booked it ahead of time from home.
Great ride around Venice very romantic, all on time
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the serenade. We didn't intend on booking it but it definitely added to the atmosphere! Gives you a more cultural experience. Would definitely do it again! Worth every cent.

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!
