We had a brilliant ride through Venice. The service at the collection point was seamless and the ride was all we hoped for. Thank you.

Great price as regulated for consumer protection. Actually, we went to Verona for the day and never showed up for the gondola! Would have been a long walk to St Mark's/gondola dock; we did not want that.

Well, the ride is nice, but shorter than offered. The gondola came back 15 minutes earlier and stopped for 5 minutes in front of the pier to finally drop us off. There were supposed to be comments, but nothing.
