This was all we could hope for a special private gondola treat for my partner and I. From booking the trip to the experience itself. The pickup point was easy to find with email and text reminders being sent the night before with all details reiterated was very helpful. The trip through the labyrinth of side canals was leisurely and we were treated to the music being serenaded in other gondolas with our gondolier joining in! He was as friendly as we wanted him to be and even pointed out some of the sights we passed by including Mozart’s Venetian residence. We finished with him taking some photos of us and one with him. Magical and special from beginning to end.
Bit of an issue at the start, but not the photographer's fault (updated location, she sent me a text but for whatever reason I didn't get it). Triin did a wonderful job in picking out locations to shoot around and giving direction that will result in some cute photos. Not received the images yet (but only had the shoot 2 days ago, so expected), but am really looking forward to seeing the results!
Our gondolier sang to us and volutarily pointed out important facts about Venive. He was very nice and very talented. It's tricky trying to find the meeting place but there is someone there to direct you. It was lovely!
Loved the whole experience - went through some quiet back routes and then out onto the Grand Canal. It was fabulous!
It was an amazing tour with many interisting information about Venice given by the gondoliere. Thanks so much.
