  • Riding on the Gondola was something I was really looking forward to while in Las Vegas. I bought a combination ticket to ride it along with Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. It was for the outdoor gondola ride. It was much shorter than I expected. It only went in a very small circle. You go under a bridge and then right back to the dock. I expected the ride to be longer and to see a little bit more. It was nice when the gondola driver serenaded us. I'm not sure if the indoor ride is different. You also have to ride with other people unless you have enough people in your group to fill it up. It costs extra if you want to be the only rider. Of course there is a photo opportunity but we didn't purchase it, for the price of the picture it wasn't worth it. I wouldn't waste my money doing this again.
  • Loved it! It's a short ride but we'll worth it! Loved the serenade! The guy was amazing! We did the outdoor Gondola because the scenery was beautiful! The guy was able to maneuver the gondola with the high winds that day, so it shows expertise. I wasn't afraid of tipping over, even in shallow water. I would definitely do this again!
  • The staff and gondoliers were so nice, our lady even sang us an Andrea Bocelli ! For the price we paid i hoped we would get to go outside or at least the ride would be a little longer. But I guess they didn't have space. I went with my cousins but the couple sharing the gondola with us seemed to have a romantic ride :p
  • It's a very short ride outside of the Venetian. I wouldn't have had done it if I didn't get this for free. Of you really want to do the gondola ride, please try the indoor one.
  • We enjoyed this gondola ride! Relaxing. Thanks "Oreo"! :) Your recommendations for restaurants were right on. We tried Zeffirinos and Joyful House. Both were excellent.

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.
