We met the tour guide at a location that was about a 10 minute walk from the actual gondolas. At the gondola station they split the group into smaller groups in the gondola. We got lucky and only had 1 other person in our gondola but we did have to wait about an extra 10 minutes longer than everyone else because they ran out of gondolas and we had to wait for more to come back which almost made us late for our next reservation tour.the gondola ride was very scenic and nice, going through the smaller canals which were obviously gondola only ares since they were packed with them. All in all...nice ride but alot of waiting and unnecessary walking. Would be better if they had us meet at the actual gondola stand.if you use this service, make sure you plan extra time on the backside.

We highly recommend the gondola ride, however, we think the ride itself was a bit shorter than the advertised 30 minute ride. Further, availing the shared ride means you pay much less than standard rate (80 eur) plus you get to meet strangers who are very happy to take pictures of you if you don’t have a selfie stick Overall, great experience!

The gondola ride lasted 30 mins. There was a 10 min walk from the meeting point shown while booking. That was a little convenient walking far in the hot sun. Apart from that, the service and the Gondola ride was amazing! Worth the value. Recommend this if you traveling alone or as a pair. A single gondola cost 80 euros if you were to book on your own.
