What People Are Saying About Grand Canal
Money well spent. Guide was easy going about matching up people to each gondola. Great job. :-)
everything from GetYourGuide was perfect, their communication is very fast and nice and they solved my problem. However the same thing can't be said about GreyLine who operates the gondola rides. Rude guide, had to wait for 22 minutes to get on a gondola and instead of 30 min ride, we only got 15 min ride. I timed it, so I know it for a fact. Asked about it right after the ride, we were told we're lying. That we only had to wait 7 min. no problem waiting if the ride would've been the promised 30 min. if you book the ride, be sure to ask before - that is has to be a 30 min ride.
My husband and I really enjoyed this museum but felt that the skip-the-line ticket was unnecessary, since it was not clear where to enter to skip the line, and by the time we were assisted we could have purchased a regular access ticket. But the museum was really wonderful!
It was nice, not fantastic. This is mainly due to the volume of people trying to do this. You're kind of herded up by a guy that You may never find, because it is not displayed where to meet on site, then they get you into a boat and the ride begins. It is a nice ride. It starts off with about ten boats that split up so you kind of have your own canal. I don't mind that it was 20 minutes, I only mind that I paid for "30."
We had a great time. She explained everything in detail and was very knowledgeable. I've been to Venice several times, but did not notice all the things our guide pointed out.
