For anyone coming to Venice, this is a special way to experience the celebration of life and music. The artists performed with their heart, as we watched the golden rays of sunset kiss the waves of the grand canal and its tributaries.

This was awesome and well worth it. The serenade was fantastic and sang wonderful songs. This was the highlight of my trip to Venice.

This was a great family experience. As a family of 5 with 3 children ages 9, 11 and 13 we thoroughly enjoyed experiencing a gondola ride (which we had to ourselves as the max seems to be 6) going down lots of narrow, interesting canals and under lots of bridges. An excellent, affordable way to experience a very special opportunity in Venice. Highly recommend to families of any ages!

My daughters quote...after the ride they said it was awesome and was glad that I booked it as it would have been boring without the serenade part. We were lucky to have the singer and accordian player in our gondola.

We did this flotilla gondola ride on our honeymoon. It was a fun and very neat way to see and enjoy the city and get a real appreciation for the canals of Venice. Our singer was funny and charming and there was an extremely talented accordionist too. Easy to find and very worth the experience!

This was a great experience. The line was organized when we arrived and at 6:30 they put groups into each boat. We lucked out and got the singer/guitar player on our boat so it was a lovely ride. We rode in a group of 6 Gondola and it was a nice "spin around the block" and lasted exactly 30 minutes. It felt safe to do it through this tour vs someone on the street.

Amazing gondola ride through the grand canal and into smaller waterways through the city. Lovely serenade and acordian player, recommend to any couple visiting Venice!

The tour was very good. You are serenaded throughout the tour. only 30 min. and could have gone for more..

Highly recommend this trip. The serenade was lovely. We experienced this at night and found it to be the perfect time.

We took a serenaded gondola ride around the Grande Canal and little side canals at twilight. The children, including teenagers, in our party loved it and pleaded to go again during our stay. Don't miss this, great value!

Great experience for a first trip to Venice! Highly recommend the gondola ride late afternoon that includes a serenade. Just keep in mind the gondola accommodates 6 people and the person singing will do so for 3-4 gondolas at the same time. All said, it is well worth it.

We enjoyed this relaxing ride thru the canals. Our driver was knowledgeable about the area and he was very sweet to explain the buildings.

This is a must! I wished the ride was longer. It was fun - the sights beautiful and everything was what one would expect.

Enjoyed this classic tourist tour! I asked to be in the serenade boat because it was my birthday and they kindly accommodated us. I received a happy birthday serenade, the highlight for me. The tour was shorter than some other boat tours and you do travel in a group 6 boats. Highly recommended for a one time touristy tour!

A must do in Venice. We were lucky enough to have the singer ride in our Gondola it made our whole experience very romantic. Make sure to sit in front or the back and avoid the middle seat if possible because you would have to sit across from your partner. The gondola ride was 30minutes long which take you down 1 canal and did a loop back to the grand canal. The experience was worth the cost.

UNBELIEVABLE. It was straight out of a movie. We were fortunate to have the singer and accordian player on our gondola which made it a 'once in a lifetime' experience. He even sang Happy Birthday to my daughter on request. I can't imagine coming to Venice and not doing this.

Our tour left with about 6 gondolas together. Each gondola had about 6 people in it. We were fortunate to only have 4 people plus an accordion player and a singer in our gondola. The singer sang about 6 songs during our gondola ride. The scenery was beautiful of course as we started on the grand canal and then took a couple of turns on some smaller canals and finally finished back on the grand canal. The music was great to hear although it may have been tougher to hear on some of the other gondolas. Our tour left around 6 pm. I would definitely recommend a later ride since the sun is out later and it was still a bit warm in the summer. I would highly recommend this tour!!!

Went to the meeting place - there was a long line - however, it moved pretty fast. Got into a Gondola with a singer and an accordion player - so only them, us and another couple. Took a lot of pictures and videos on the Grand Canal and some of the back streets (canals). Definitely worth the money. Very memorable.
