“Albatravel Gondola waste of time”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

ANYONE who does the Gondola with this company will regret it, (this was arranged by our travel agent). On 5/30/14 we took this Gondola ride which is the one thing my granddaughter wanted to do in Italy. The man taking the vouchers was VERY RUDE, then they CROWD you on the gondola, and our gondolier never spoke a word to us. We floated in the Grand Canal for about 20 mins till the WAGON TRAIN OF BOATS were ready for our short ride in the canals off the Grand Canal lasting about 20 mins & that was our 40 min ride. Believe me I've been to Venice before, book your our gondola when you get there. Try the back canals for a nicer ride with anyone besides Albatravel. It was not the memory we wanted for our granddaughter & they rest of our family. We know because the one we did before on the back canals was great. Again stay away from them!!!!!!

“Rude staff in Albatravel offices”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Staff is very rude and not very professional, they do have an attitude over the phone... Not happy with their services, too many mistakes.
In future I will always be sure not to book with them.

“Not bad but a bit difficult”
Reviewed 28 July 2012 via mobile

We had problems at the pick up airport, nobody was there and we were not told we had to go to the office. Tours are good and not expensive.
