My wife thought we were just taking a regular gondola ride. She was very surprised to see the singer and accordion player climb on board as well! While the tour is pricey, it was worth it. Both musicians were fantastic! I noticed that as soon as the singer starts, your boat instantly becomes a magnet for cell phone video. Everyone walking by was filming us. If that kind of thing makes you uncomfortable, this isn't the tour for you. We don't mind that so we had a blast! Our gondolier was great, too. Very quiet, but when he spoke he was very funny. I would definitely do this tour again!!!

Yes, it is expensive. But if you want a romantic boat ride, this is it. In the two days we spent in Venice, we rarely saw any other gondolas with serenades. It really stuck out as something special and we really enjoyed our specific soloist - his voice was wonderful and I know we will always associate our ride with our time in the city.

Thought this would be cheesy but was actually a cool experience. Accordion player and singer were extremely talented. There were many gondolas in the small canals but this is the only one I saw with music and singing. Everything went smoothly and was well organized.

Magical experience. I was surprised that more people did not take advantage of this wonderful, once in a lifetime opportunity. The singer and musician were delightful, on-time and completely engaged throughout the entire ride. All the passing boats and people on the bridges pulled out their cameras to capture the our excitement. I caputure many momemts on my iPhone that will be cherished for many years to come. I highly recommend. Be prepared to find the office which is tricky to find so use your GPS. From there they walk you to the loading area where you will be placed in your gondola along with awaiting singer and musician. It could not have been more enjoyable!
