Don't know if this will post more than once, as my computer shut off before I could submit (I think)..Anyway, this tour, too good for stars or a description! I think if you don't do this tour, you will be missing the best part of Venice! Forget about the simple gondola ride, you have to do the serenade tour! My family and I laughed so hard, we loved the accordion playing of Peter and singing of Francesco! If anyone has Italian roots, this will remind you of your Nono's basement and waiting on Nonna's cooking around the table with a soft tune in the background! Too awesome for words...A MUST DO!Reviewed by: jrgs30, April 2014
Our experience Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade was fantastic! Our trip to North Italy was my birthday gift. We were very impressed with gondola and serenade where our guide was signing through all our ride which lasted 40 min. Loved the ride, loved the city!! Would definitely recommend! Worth the money :)Reviewed by: Anna J, April 2014

Although we had to share our gondola (which I was aware of) it was still a wonderful experience. The gondolier was really funny and a pleasure. The person who sang to us was quite amazing. Loved it!Reviewed by: Stephen J, March 2014
Loved it!! But would have loved to of heard the cornetto song!!!
Bit disappointed that they weren't dressed with typical outfits and a hat, puffer coat and spiked hair wasn't very traditional!!!
Loved the ride, loved the city!! Would definitely recommend
Wonderful experience-professional and romantic :)Reviewed by: dolphindreams.michelle, February 2014
This tour was awesome, and it was an experience not to be missed. The perfect way to see Venice...along the Grand Canal and into the smaller canals. The vocalist who sang and the accordion player were great and it was a fantastic authentic experience.Reviewed by: roey, February 2014
We really enjoyed this tour and the lovely Italian man singing to us had a beautiful voice and big smile,Reviewed by: Patricia G, January 2014
For something a bit different, this tour will please. Although it was a bit cold, we had 3 gondolas of people which started in the Grand Canal with some light music from an accordion. When the serenade started, the look on my wife and kids faces was golden. The echos of his voice as we passed thru the smaller canals only added to the relaxing atmosphere. Even the people on the bridges we passed under were mesmerized. Would recommend this to anyone who have already been on a gondola and wants to try something different.Reviewed by: Lance L, January 2014
