    This really is one of those things you do just so you can say you did it. The ride is pretty brief and pricey for such a short ride. It's $16 for each person, or $64 if you want a private 2 person ride.

    We did the outside ride during the day. The gondolier sang and was nice. We rode with 2 strangers, which was kind of weird and not really that romantic. You're wondering if they are looking at you, you're looking at them to see if they are looking at you wondering if you are looking at them...But it's still cool.

    Time saving tip: You can make same day reservations so you don't have to stand around waiting.

    Take a 10-12 minute gondola ride with your sweetheart, and get a beautiful live serenade. It's very peaceful and romantic.

    I didn't take a ride, hence 3 stars, I can't really rate the ride quality, however, it's really lovely to watch the Gondolas pass through the hotel. The set up is very reminiscent of Venice... but never a substitute for the real thing.

    My most favourite hotel in Vegas. Amazing interior. All hotel inside is copy of Venice, the channels and gondolas are in real sizes, roof is colored and lighted as real sky, even you can feel the wind. Restaurants are wonderful also the food. The entire atmosphere is authentic and so real. Even the street singers on the "square".
    You must see it!

    What a beautiful sight inside the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas. it's perfect for the couple to experience this gondola ride and being serenaded by the person who controls it, I don't know what they're called. the surrounding is so calm and lovely. it's a little pricey but I think it's worth it.

    A gondola ride is expensive, but it's definitely a fun experience if you've got the dough for it, especially for a couple. You buy tickets for rides from a store/office in the canal shops to schedule your gondola ride time. When it's your turn, the "driver" helps you in and then you're off! Many times, your driver will also sing and serenade at one point of the ride, so be excited!!

    A fun thing to do with your beau! But have a friend stand on one of the bridges to take your picture because the ones they sell you are expensive.

    This is a must do when in Vegas. The gondoliers are great. The one that we had was actually from Venice. I thought that it was an act, but he was the real deal. We did not go on the ride outside, but we went in the Grand Canal inside, and it was a truly fabulous experience. I cannot imagine having a Vegas experience that didn't include this.

    In order to feel like Venice you need to take a gondola ride. but instead you feel stupid in this short drive when huge amount of people watching you.

    It's really nice to see the gondola's rowing by while you are shopping inside the Venetian. But, to pay a pretty high price to take a ride through a small section of the Venetian isn't really worth it. For those who have done the real gondola ride in Venice, I wouldn't bother. For everyone else, it might be fun if you are okay with the price.

    Nice ride also they have an semi-accessible way of getting you on the boats, but need to get your tickets early in the morning. don't miss the walk through of the shops don't forget to look up.

    Ride with a bunch of drunken bros or take a date, remember if you poked a hole in the bottom of the canal, you would flood the casino one floor below.

    I know Venice quite well and when I saw the Venetian I was really impressed because they reproduced it in a very similar way. The gondola ride is a funny experience, really romantlic.

    In March 2002 my husband took me to Treasure Island then took me on the Gondola Ride. He was going to propose but the Gondoler stated "we have a lot of marriage proposal's here! Wonderful and beautiful at night

    Haven't actually taken the ride itself, so just reviewing as an outsider looking in. It certainly creates an atmosphere for the hotel, with the guys singing and the acoustics of the place, but I would be too embarrassed to actually sit in one of those.

    The gondola rides in Venice cost somewhere in the vicinity of 100 Euro - so I thought this was a steal (and would at least provide a passable replacement). Um. Not really. Was a cute little tour of the casino with a nut of a singer. Was fun/funny - but probably not worth the investment.

    Please note: I've done the gondola rides in Venezia, Italy twice, so maybe that's why I'm not very fond of this. However, I will admit that the Venetian did a fantastic job at replicating everything, since they did consult architects from Italy.

    All in all, the ride is quite pricy and just goes around the water areas (interior and exterior) that make the Venetian. If you've never ever been to Venice before though and want a little taste of Italia, this may be your best bet.

Description

A visit to the Venetian, Las Vegas’ Venice, Italy-themed hotel, would not be complete without a gondola ride on the indoor waterways that run through the many shops and restaurants on offer. Gondoliers will serenade your party in traditional fashion while other tourists snap pictures jealously.
