    The head of the gondoliers is very professional on the placement, the appointment of the gondoliers, etc... And we came across a gondolier who neither ever talks nor talks too much. he even offered himself to take a picture of my wife and my son on the gondola. very very good.....

    It was great to know we had a place reserved as Venice is very busy and the queues for gondolas were long. The trip was wonderful and everything we hoped it would be. The gondola was very comfortable and the staff were great. We will certainly use again if we ever return to Venice

    Very kind gondolier, very nice the 'manager' of the voucher acceptance. Having booked online I thought I would save some money and not spend 40 euros more. I hope that at least part of these 40 euros will remain with the gondolier and the 'manager' because they are truly extremely available
