Private Tour: Venice Gondola Ride with Serenade
Reviewed by: Sheila S, September 2015
It was amazing. I did not expect an accordion player and a singer in addition to the gondola driver When we booked the tour, we thought it was just a singing gondola driver. It was our 50th wedding anniversary and we wanted a private gondola and we couldn't have asked for more. They played and sang beautifully. So romantic it still brings tears to my eyes.

Although we would have wanted it to be longer, it was only because of how wonderful it was. We loved every second of it. It is a little bit pricey, but totally worth it.

The ride and the serenade were first class. Did we need to prebook?? Not sure there were only about half a dozen people in the queue. The board said 41 Euros for a 30 minute serenaded gondola ride I paid about 233!!

Once comfortable with so many eyes focused on you becomes the most romantic memorable experience.

As sappy as the idea seems, this actually is a LOTof relaxing fun. Our oarsman was skilled and kind. Our musician and vocalist and oarsman were REAL troopers since we got hit with a very rare summer hailstorm and rain deluge. The oarsman manuvered us under a bridge, but the gondola was too long to be completely covered. The oarsman and singer were soaked. All of us got pretty wet, but we laughed about it and it cooled us off. The musician had to protect his accordian, so we tried to keep him in the middle. The storm, unfortunately, spawned a deadly tornado a few miles away. For us, the ride was memorable and silly fun. I really appreciate the attitude of the singer and the oarsman who were forced to sit in the downpour and still laughed about it. What can you do?
