Most of the staff here were very rude. Maybe its just the Italians but my husband and I were disappointed in how we were treated when we just asked a question. The gondola ride was awesome but I already had a bad taste before the ride wit the rudeness of the staff.

The activity as such, very good. The schedule and condition of the singer and musician in the gondola was fulfilled. However, before we had to embark, there was an incident that frightened the group of tourists we expected. One of the gondoliers of the Santa María del Giglio company, our tour operator had a terrible outburst and began shouting expletives and throwing things out of one of the gondolas, a really shocking topic. They should get your attention and avoid such acts!

The girl who attended me was excellent, she spoke in several languages and looked for solutions to your problems, if you had them. The only but is that the gondolier does not sing in your gondola but several meters away, because he sings at least 3 or 4 gondolas and sings modern songs, so I was waiting for him to sing traditional Italian songs ... Ed Sheeran sang ! The rest, all good.
