Spectacular Gondola trip

We have just taken our Grandson to Venice and one of the things he wanted to do was a Gondola trip. We had read about delays etc so decided to look for somewhere to book it in advance. They could not have been more helpful in organizing our trip and once there everything was organised very well indeed. Our english speaking guide was formative and made the experience much more interesting. If you are planning to do a gondola trip in Venice this is the way to do it with no hassle.

Wonderful Gondola experience”

Something you can not afford to miss is a super Gondola ride around the canals of Venice. We took a ride from the Grand Canal near the station. We were given a price at the start and had a very well informed trip and commentary all the local attraction and history. You also see Venice from a viewpoint that most only see from the bridges and pathways. An excellent attraction.
