My exceptions were a gondola ride with my husband and to be serenaded. Well, there were 4 other people in our Gondola and 8 Gondolas with ONE person serenading all EIGHT gondolas and he was in the last Gondola. NOT romantic not worth paying over 100 dollars. and 2 people walked up on got in their own Gondola for $80.00, though not serenaded.
This trip was very nice. Expect to stand in a line, even though you have a reservation. Also expect to be with about 4 other people in your boat.(Those in our boat were a little loud and rowdy) I would recommend this trip, as the views were lovely, and the ride was long. It was great when it got dark, and the narrow canals were lit. We really enjoyed ourselves. Also, be sure to find the location early, as it was a little tricky to find.
The Gondola ride and Sernade was beautiful. However the people who helped us get on the Gandola's were rude and the queing system was confusing and not explained propelry. Me and my mum were annoyed and confused as we asked the staff and they just pointed and said sit anywhere and wait in a very rude way.
The gondola ride with serenade is a nice idea but.... when combined with 3 couples per boat and probably about 10 boats traveling as a pack and one person who sings you end up with an unromantic ride.Also considering ours was at night it was pointless, couldn’t see any of the sights. I would recommend NOT TO DO THIS and instead walk around the city. You will see more and gain a greater experience with the Venice culture.
Serenata ok, passeio se gôndola ok. Na descrição apenas se esqueçam de dizer que o passeio é numa gôndola com 6 pessoas, que vai no meio de mais 7 gôndolas e que quem canta a serenata vai la no meio. Quem vai nas gôndolas de trás quase nem ouve nada. Passeio pouco romântico, pouco cultural... Quem fornece o serviço procura apenas o lucro e não se preocupa minimamente com o serviço que presta
