Beautiful experience of a mythical gondola ride to do absolutely 30 min is very good and the ride in a group of 5 quite bearable Attention the meeting point is at the level of the boxes for the public boat and you have to wait for the guide who will take you leads to gondolas

Better pick and book a gondola that you like on your own, there are almost everywhere and the 80 euros worth it. Shared is not a good option, you don't enjoy the fool experience sitting on a small chair in the middle. Gondola is only for two people sitting on the main double sofa. I was disappointed...

I chose this gondola ride because it said you would see the Rialto Bridge. That was not the case on our trip! There were four of us in the boat. That's totally fine! A nice lady picked us up from the ticket counter (extremely punctual!) and took us to the gondolier stand. Introduction, as predicted, there was none! A regular gondola ride without pre-booking costs €80 in Venice, so I think the price-performance ratio is FULLY ok. We got the full 30 minutes promised.
