    • Good experience

      It’s was a very good ride and experience for us was amazing and we have the privilege that the serande is on our gondola. Murano art of glassblowing is good....

    • The man who sang was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Though I was little disheartened that in the crowd of gondoliers in the narrow waterways we were far away from the singer n so could hardly enjoy his singing for long. Every two gondola should share a singer and not 10gondolas having to fight to listen to one singer.

    • We done this very trip some five years ago. Excellent then, but not as good this time, seemed very rushed, and the group was very big. Still a must do when in Venice. Would recommend
