  • My husband and I were married the day before. We decided to take a gondola ride with a opera typed singer. It was wonderful and romantic. We went early in the day so it wasn't crowded. Our gondolier w...  more »
  • Nice diversion, but quite expensive for time of ride. Our gondolier was nice with a good voice. Pleasant, but not a must-do. We did the ride inside the Venetian canal shops (mall).  more »

  • This ride was pretty awesome, it is super nice the guy sings pretty good! It’s definitely one of those experiences that make you forget where you are!! My wife and I really enjoyed our ride around Venice lol and it was quite fun! A bit expensive, but what isn’t expensive in Las Vegas.
  • It is true, is expensive, but one of the great experience ever. You really feel like you are at Venetian and our guy was really nice, beautiful voice and was ready on every picture to make us feel great. I do recommend this and again is not cheap but cheap is never good.
  • I've seen where people reviewed this as bad but I thought this was really neat. My boyfriend and I are both Italian and he's even been to Italy to visit his family. They really make you feel like you are in Venice which is somewhere I really want to visit one day. We did the inside ride since it was rather windy outside. We also went early in the morning around 10:30am so we had no wait time and we got a really good gondola rider. Our guy sang amazing and was so sweet and nice. The ride is only like 10-15 minutes and I didn't think $30 was too bad for the cool little experience. They were fine if you wanted to take pictures and videos too so that made it really awesome we videoed and took pictures the whole time. Honestly this was my boyfriend and I's best experience in Vegas after seeing the Bellagio water show. I heard from a friend she didn't really care for this but I think it's all personal preference and what time you go. If it's super busy I could see why this wouldn't be as fun.
  • This is one of those rip offs where you should never spend your money. It's so expensive and the trip is so short! Now if are imaginative enough then you may actually feel that you have been transported to someplace else but by the time you actually start enjoying the ride, it is over!
  • They offer a military discount too! It was a nice little ride and we had the best gondolier driver and singer! My husband and I enjoyed every bit of it. It was very hot when we went, so we chose to take the indoor gondola ride.

Where to stay in Las Vegas

Most Las Vegas hotels increase their room rates on the weekends, so if you have a flexible schedule, avoid Fridays and Saturdays and take advantage of package deals that include shows, meals, and gambling coupons. Remember also that if you stay at any one of the lively casino hotels, you may not be able to get a good night's sleep for the duration of your trip. If you come to Vegas to stay but not necessarily play, try one of the non-gaming hotels or explore the quieter areas surrounding the city.
