Pros: - nice and helpful gondolière who also explained a lot; - View of the Canale Grande and thus of the surrounding sights and beautiful architecture - relaxed and quiet atmosphere Con: - mass processing at the beginning (melted (better: melted) during the journey) - small alleys were partly not attractive (due to the route- and timing; in the end on the Canale Grande) Conclusion: apart from the beginning and the choice of a few streets, which was certainly due to the time, it was a beautiful and unique gondola ride. Since we had booked the trip for sunset, we could see the play of colors on the water on the Canale Grande and also had more peace and quiet, as day tourism ebbed away. It is definitely worth the money, because there is no nicer gondola ride that cheap. It is not recommended for those who are seasick, as the gondola can shake quite a bit when the waves are coming up.

The group gondola ride was great. You will be divided into groups of 4 to 5 by the organizer and distributed to the gondolas. We were fortunate to be put in a gondola with a pleasant couple. However, you cannot choose this. The gondola ride is advertised as 30 minutes, but our ride was somewhere between 20 and 25 minutes. All in all we had a comparatively good value experience and would recommend it.

Pleasant walk and fair price considering the local price (80€ per person). The kids loved it. As the gondolas have 5 seats, we were lucky to be only all 4. We started with the small canals then the Grand Canal to finish. On the other hand, the gondoliers are not very friendly so they shouldn't ask them too many questions, they prefer to talk to each other... But the ride/price is worth it.
