Have a good trip !

The gondoliers are not friendly, cordial or polite, nor do they say anything during the tour. The tour is very good, we are faced with beautiful scenery in the smaller and larger channels, this part that ends up being worth the tour. The cost-benefit also leaves a little to be desired.

Loved the gondola ride, was through smaller canals and the grande canal!

Characteristic tour both between small canals and a short stretch of the grand canal. Very helpful and pleasant gondolier told us about his work experience as well as briefly illustrating the main attractions visible during the journey
