Private Gondola Ride for Two in Venice

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Book your Venice gondola experience in advance, and experience the city at its most romantic. Simply make your way to a dock in central Venice (exact location will be available after booking), arriving 10 minutes prior to departure time. 

    Soak up the atmosphere as your gondolier poles the longboat along the Grand Canal, which has been the bustling heart of the city for centuries. Turn off the Grand Canal to explore the quieter waterways where many Venetians live, and take advantage of your personal tour to chat with the gondolier, or ask any questions you have about Venetian history and culture.

    This 30-minute tour concludes at the original departure point, at a dock in central Venice.

    Let’s be honest. The private gondola rides rob you at 80€ per head for 30mins...but it’s something you have to do once in your life. For this reason, I would never do it again but I would recommend this one to those who are interested. The gondalier was friendly but didn’t talk

    We booked this trip via Viator (Tripadvisors sister site) and needless to say we were left feeling really ripped off! Although we enjoyed the gondola ride itself we were not given any prosecco whatsoever! (Something that the website stated we would get), the gondola we was given

    Our ride took us on the exact same route as a bunch of other gondolas. It was less of a romantic ride for 2 and more of just a string of boats full of people following each other. The ride was shorter than 30 minutes which made it hard to finish the bottle of prosecco they gave
