Your private ride will be approximately 30-35 minutes in length. Your gondolier, who will stand facing the bow, will propel you through the magical waters of Venice by pushing a single oar, as gondoliers have done for centuries.
At the end of the tour, we suggest a short walk to the famous Florian Cafe right on San Marco Square, where you can find a great cup of coffee and a special dessert. You'll return to your ship via non-private shuttle (see Special Instructions).
To make this an extra special event, you may wish to be serenaded by a singer and guitarist or accordionist while floating down the the canals of Venice. Choose the singer serenade option when you book the tour.

- Please contact ShoreTrips if you are interested in a transfer to and from the cruise ship, rather than meeting in San Marco Square.
