What to expect

The gondola is one of the main symbols of Venice, as emblematic of the famous city of water as it is mysterious in its origins. Not many people know that at the beginning this unique vessel was different from the one we can admire today, changing across time together with the city it is associated to. Of course, the history of the gondola is deeply bounded to the one of Venice. Considered one of the most beautiful and elegant boats on earth, the gondola is built using unique techniques and every sigle part of it also hides symbolic meanings. For example, its toothed bow iron has five or six rebbi (combs), which are each symbolic of the six sestieri (districts) into which Venice is divided. The function of this part made of iron is to balance the weight of the gondolier and it has an 'S' shape that evokes the flow of the Grand Canal.Let yourself experience in first person the gondola through this tour. An enchanting and relaxing way to enjoy the colors, lights, sights, charm and beauty of Venice. You'll be able to admire elegant buildings on the side banks and unique bridges, and breathe in the fascinating and magical atmosphere that only a city built on water can offer.Itinerary - Boarding at Campo San Moisè near St Mark's Square area - Glide along the canals surrounding the area - Enter the breathtaking Grand Canal - Return back to place of boarding

Muy bien todo, muy contentos con la experiencia
Todo muy correcto. Fueron muy puntuales en el punto de encuentro y amables. El gondolero muy correcto y simpàtico aunque no están para decir nada, sólo para remar. En la publicidad dicen que son 35 minutos y fueron 30.En eso aceptable

Expérience gondole en groupe.
Le timing n'est pas respecté.Pour rentabiliser auprès des gondoliers, c'est l'usine... pour le romantisme, c'est raté.Si le prix de base est de 80€, ce n'est pas un hasard.

Piacevole esperienza in gondola
Molte persone ad aspettare il referente Tours arrivato 5 minuti più tardi di quanto indicato nel programma, l'attesa per salire sulla gondola è stata abbastanza breve (ca 10 minuti), durata e percorso del giro sono adeguate alle aspettative. Tutto sommata una piacevole esperienza.

Interessante
Tutto ben organizzato, ci siamo trovati molto bene!

Moment très agréable
C'est vraiment à faire ! A six dans une Gondole, toutes les places ne valent pas ... mais c'est 32€/personne.A noter tout de même, le point de rendez-vous et l'attente du Guide constituent un moment assez anxiogène ! On attend, On attend beaucoup de monde autour de vous et on ne voit rien...

Bien
Très sympathique mais un peu déçu car nous passons par des arrières je pensais voir les grands monuments de laCondole mais c'est sympa quand même il faut le faire

Está bien
No me gustó la organización: llegaron sin decir nada ni presentándose y con prisas y con un poco de retraso. El paseo en góndola, precioso, aunque nos tocó un gondolero en ocasiones un tanto maleducado. Pero por lo general, bien.

Cristina - August 8, 2018
Muy bueno
Se formó un poco de fila y barullo porque estabamos mucha gente en el punto de encuentro y hasta que se organizaban los grupos para poder subir a cada góndola fue un poco caos. Pero por lo demás perfecto. Repetiría y lo aconsejo, sobre todo viendo el dinero que te ahorras.

Moyen
J'ai reçu le bon pour une promenade en gondole comme cadeau : le lien ne marchait pas pendant plusieurs jours. Puis une fois sur place, nous avons eu beaucoup de mal à trouver le meeting point et avant du revenir 2 fois puis attendre 1 h sur place !

Terrific
10/10

Peaceful
The gondola experience was peaceful and romantic. We shared the gondola with a family of four, but this did not alter our ride.
