40-Minute Private Gondola Ride

40 minutes (Approx.)
Free cancellation

Mobile ticket


The best perspective to admire Venice is from the water and the gondola is the very best way to discover the city and experience how, in the past, Venetians moved from a district to another. That is a unique experience that you cannot miss!
This gondola ride differs from all the other standard rides due to its special duration: 40 minutes instead of standard 30!
The route of this Gondola ride starts few steps far away from St Mark’s Square, crossing hidden inner canals so then you can admire original glimpses that otherwise you cannot notice when walking through the city centre. But that’s not all! This special ride, agreed between this local tour operator and the gondoliers, will let you marvel at the majestic Rialto Bridge, one of the most ancient and famous bridges in Venice.
Don't forget that this is a private tour, so you can let yourself be rocked by the waves of Canal Grande with the people closest to you, having an entire gondola at your disposal, for up to 5 people.

Proposta di matrimonio da sogno. Il gondoliere molto simpatico, disponibile e ha fatto di tutto per farci sentire bene. Nonostante nella traiettoria non ci fu il sottopasso del ponte di rialto, lui l’ha fatto lo stesso. Sicuramente andrò di nuovo da loro. Gondole di Bauer. Le migliori.

We enjoyed the private gondola ride in Venice. We went right near sunset, and the lighting was just beautiful. The price was probably a little bit expensive, but we thought it was worth it for the unique experience.

This was an extraordinary experience for my family of four. Got to meeting point and there was a line, but when I showed my ticket we were shown to a different set of stairs and put on our own private gondola.

Booked this for my husband and 2 teenagers. The ride of course was beautiful but silent. Our gondolier did not talk at all. Thought we would at least get a little history or be shown some important highlights but nothing Super disappointed for our first trip to Venice.

Me and my friends booked it in advance which was already a great plus. Another big plus is the place where you get on, which is not at a busy spot so there is not a lot of pressure. All the staff and the gondolier spoke English very well. They arranged everything well. The route only visited the...
