We received no commentary, and shared the gondola with other people this was not mentioned at the time of booking.

Une belle balade en gondole avec un gondolier très convivial. Une activité à faire absolument durant un voyage à Venise. Un prix bas qui vaut le coup par rapport aux aitres balades proposées dans la ville. L'application est à écouter après la balade afin de profiter pleinement.

I liked that it was organised in advance so it took the stress out of finding a gondola and worrying about the cost. It was a shared ride which was fine as long as you are ok with sharing! It was on a very busy stretch of water so we spent a long time in a queue and we actually just did a tour of the block. It’s hard to compare to what you get if you just turn up at a gondola station and pay as we didn’t do that. I would say it was good but not great...
