    They were so friendly and helpful from the check in gentleman to the guide himself. The gondolier pointed out historic buildings during the ride and was able to find a nice balance between showing us things and letting my husband I sit back and enjoy the ride and each other’s company.

    Beautiful gondola ride! Intriguing, romantic, suggestive and relaxing. We were able to admire Venice from many different perspectives that it is not possible to grasp by walking on foot. You are immersed in a rarefied atmosphere of other times in which very interesting details can be observed. It is absolutely worth it!

    A very nice experience. At the beginning it was not easy to find the right gondola operator, but we were helped very nicely. The ride was very nice and a lot of fun. There was something on offer from commentary to be listened to via an app - that didn't work.
