Oh yes, gondola is one of the most tourist traps you can find in Venice. A tour in gondola is probably a must, but you have to know that there are fixed prices for standard tours in Venice, and sometimes it happens that people could ask you more (tourists... so...)

Unique Suggestions: Click here to know the official gondola tours prices... these prices are for standard tour, which are in the url site, so it's normal that a "gondoliere" asks you more if you ask for an alternative tour... but pay attention :)

Fun Alternatives: A gondola is so expensive, right, but the only thing I suggest to really do is a tour by vaporetto in Canal Grande (take line 1).. it's very cheaper and even if less romantic, you will love that tour, expecially in a sunny day, I'm sure for this.
