What People Are Saying About Grand Canal

Excellent short gondola trip demonstrating the gondolier's expertise

Very helpful local rep who was prepared to change our booking to two days later. Booking in advance in England was cheaper than locally, but 30 minutes just gives a flavour of the grand canal and a couple of sided canals rather than any major site-seeing.

knowlegable, friendly, and helpful guide!

Tomasso and his staff were helpful and gave us the option to select specific locations to stop and tour in the lagoon. Perfect outing!

It was short but relaxing ride during the bustle of touring

The ride was fun and relaxing amid the noise and bustle of the day. Six people could ride but only two nice seats. We were lucky to get the nice seats so ride was enjoyable but if you were the one stuck with the end seats, you would sit separate from the other person you are with and it would not have been a good ride.

A good experience to see what gondola travel feels like

Prepare for a shared gondola that will seat 6 tourists. You do not choose your seat - heavier passengers tend to be placed on the 'romantic" rear seats & others seated on cushion seats or a chair. Went Sept 15 for ride at 4pm & booked it via mobile internet only 2 hrs earlier! We found gondola station beforehand; Venice has many gondola bases that all do different routes. You wait for agency guide to arrive to check you in. The stationmaster does not deal with vouchers. As gondola rides are the busiest tourist attraction in Venice, be prepared for no romance or gondolier attention - this is just a chance to ride in a gondola on a short route of the canals & then be taken onto the Grand Canal for a short while before heading back to base. The trip advises 35 mins but its about 25mins all in. The gondoliers are v occupied shouting to one another en route. It was fine to see what it's like. Note: The set price at any station for private hire is 80€ per gondola daytime; 100€ at night.
