The gondola ride was amazing! However the meeting time was at 6:40 pm and after we have been escorted to departure place people needed to queue up and wait a while for their turn. The actual ride was only about 20 min. I recommend not to book this tour if you have something scheduled right afterwards as it might take longer than expected to finish.

Very pleasant. Thought it was short for the price but we still enjoyed the experience

This was very nothing like I expected. It was very congested The boats were almost attached like roller coasters and the ride was quicker than advertised. Basically in a small circle. Not worth the money
