Many people complaint about crowds etc. This is why we went to Venice on a Monday and not during the weekend. Timing, timing timing guys.
The ride was more than 30 minutes , the gondola captain was talkative in both Italian and English and he will talk about the landmarks . He even took pictures of us ...
SO, pick off peak days and time for a better quality of service...

Gondola ride was very calming and tranquil. There were 6 of us sharing one boat but it was good value for money. However, only went down a small section of the grand canal.

It's beautiful and a nice experience to go up and down the grand canal in a gondola. It's expensive so better to go for a shared gondola. They had put 3 people in one and we had a nice time enjoying the view all around. If you are looking for a romantic ride, it might or might not work in your favour depending on the crowds that day.

A romantic gondola ride is on the top of most traveler’s itinerary when visiting Venice. It was definitely a must do for me. I imagined taking in the beautiful sights of Venice, floating through historic canals and the sounds of music in the air. In reality, my experience was flawed from the start. A heat wave was occurring at the time, followed by periodic downpours of rain. However, I didn’t mind the weather, I still wanted a magical experience. In reality, what I found is close to a hundred other tourists like me, who all wanted the same experience and were lined up like cattle awaiting their turn for a ride in a gondola, without any clear system or order of who is next queue. We waited patiently in line while we witnessed others charming the gondoliers to cut the line. As we waited we watched as the gondoliers rudely yell commands at tourists, treating them like the cattle they already felt akin to. Overall, Venice was a disappointment largely due to it’s unfriendly inhabitants. I found the people of Roam and along the Almalfi Coast to be charming, welcoming and much more polite than many locals we encountered in Venice.

Yes, we went and had to do this. Yes, this is a job for Gondoliers but, the tourists are paying customers and probably would appreciate it if the gondolier passed along what they knew of the area. Ours caught up with his buddy and they bs'ed the entire trip for us all, not to us but to each other. Ignoring paying customers is not the wisest decision gents.

What more can you say...... once in Venice a Gondola ride is a must do.
We had the opportunity to go on the back canals during a quiet period and had such an awesome time.
The photo opportunities were everywhere, and our Gondolier very knowledgeable and talkative. We learnt just so much.
As I said, do not miss this.............

Was a little concerned we wouldn’t find meeting point as some previous comments had problems, with help of google maps was very easy. Gondola ride was very pleasant and was great that it included a ride down the grand canal near the Rialto bridge. It was beautiful weather in October which was a bonus for our first visit to Venice.

Although a private gondola ride is expensive it is worth the pay. It captures the essence of life in Venice.
