Heel veel geld voor hetgeen wat je krijgt. Restaurant was flets van smaak. Blij dat we naar het hotelletje terug konden gaan
It was the best way to see Venice. We had the good luck of having the accordion player and singer in our gondola, it was so much fun. They had amazing personalities and really entertained us. We then had a very romantic dinner and the dinner was delicious. It was delicious and was not a limited menu which was also nice. Our only complaint was that we got lost finding the restaurant. In the future, a map provided to the patrons would be nice so people don't get lost finding the restaurant.
The Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade was the highlight of our Venice vacation! The 5 stars are for the Gondola ride with Serenade ONLY...NOT the dinner. When we arrived at the restaurant after the gondola ride, we presented our Viator voucher receipt to the manager/waiter. He was rude, very skeptical and accused us of giving him a Fake receipt. He wanted the voucher which the gondola ride operator had already taken PRIOR the gondola ride. He was extremely unpleasant, making us feel as though we were there for a free meal even though we paid for it several months prior when we booked this event. The waiter claimed I never received an Email from Viator about you/this reservation. After bickering with him, he finally decided to seat us. The food was fair, nothing that we would ever return to with all of the many wonderful restaurants in Venice. While eating, another couple entered the restaurant, and we witnessed the same cold reception and accusation of a Fake receipt, when they also presented their post gondola ride receipt voucher. He gave them such a difficult time, the young girl was almost reduced to tears. We intervened on their behalf and the waiter finally relented and decided to seat them as well. Viator should NOT USE the current restaurant, HOSTARIA AI CORISTI, for dinner with this tour. STOP using a restaurant that appears to be failing based on the lack of patrons inside and outside when most of the other restaurants were filled to capacity, low quality of food, and waiter/manager rude, ungrateful, and almost ruined our wonderful experience. The serenade gondola ride was great, the professional singer and musician we had was wonderful...book the other tour WITHOUT the dinner!! It is less expensive and you will not regret it.
This tour was certainly not worth the price. We were one of 7 gondolas in the group, a group of strangers. There was a serenade in the second gondola which we almost entirely could not see or hear. The ride was brief 20 mins and our boat was swamped with water in the main canal.
After the gondola ride we spent over an hour trying to find the restaurant for the meal that came with this package. The restaurant was tucked away in a remote corner. It would have been nice to be guided at the end of the tour to the restaurant. The food and service at the restaurant was nice.
You can rent a gondola for 80 euros which is a far cry from the cost of this inadequate tour. Strongly would not recommend.
It was indeed an amazing ride. The only comment I have is that the advertisement might be a little misleading thinking the dinner is close or at port, it's actually a little ways apart. But food was amazing at restaurant.
Venice navigation is a nightmare...picture Diagon alley in HP.The ride was short and they made fun of my mom. The singer was on 1 boat and the we were near to listen. The drop off point was a 10 min walk from the dinner, if you knew where to go. The best part was dinner. Food and service AMAZING.
I was not impressed. I realize they do this all day out but it was a once in a lifetime thing for me and they really should find a way to treat each guest as if they are their only guest. False advertising that each boat had musicians. I’m a travel agent and will not recommend this tour.
Touristy activity and dinner wasn't great.
From beginning to end, this was fantastic! We had a beautiful night for the gondola ride, the gentleman singing was outstanding, dinner was very good at Ristorante Ai Coristi, and the service across the board was awesome! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Very unorganized when we arrived at the location. Was not the length of time indicated and the dinner was very poor.
