Poor treatment
adriana_g

First they sent us to the wrong place which caused us to be late then made us wait by the port near marks square then at 3pm they made us walk about a good mile to the pick up point. Reps for the ticket company were rude and not helpful at all. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone

Very bad offer!

Due to the wrong location, we came too late and could no longer participate, only 4 hours later. At first we couldn't reach anyone by phone to ask! The whole thing completely messed up our day. The gondola ride itself only took 15 minutes! I was very disappointed with the offer !! There was still a discount on site because we had booked it online, we didn't get one! We couldn't cancel either. Next time I would do everything on site, but in general the gondola ride didn't pay off!

Not with the price or time.

Normally not disappointed with Viator's tours, but this one was not worth the price or time. It was a bit disorganized, started late and there were to many people.

We had to share the ride with strangers who only spoke Italian. The tour guide never acknowledged my husband and I making us feel like we were invisible. The tour guide spoke the entire time to the other couple I. Italian. Made what I expected to be a good if not great experience horrible. Many options once you are in Venice with variety of prices

Bad communication on the ticket

Nice gondela ride but it was a shared gondela. Nothing worse but this was not mentioned in the booking. The worst thing was to find the redemption point. We asked several people and were send here and there. We find the redemption point only by luck !!! Bad communication on the ticket.

Fun Venetian Experience

Fun shared gondola ride. Had the full 30 minutes along beautiful side canals and a few dramatic pop outs onto the grand canal. Good value only if there are only one or two of you.

Didn't have
Andrielli_N

Hello, we had a problem with our gondola tour, we didn't find the location to take the tickets, we asked for different people and there wasn't anything in the place that they indicated us. We called to the number that it's in the booking area in case of a issue and nobody answered. In the end we didn't have had our ride. So I was wondering if we could have our money back because as you see, it wasn't our fault, we tried and tried. But there was no sign of the place to take our tickets.
