This was one of the highlights of our first trip to Venice. My son who is 8 talked about how much fun it was and was the best part of all the sightseeing that we did in Venice. We really enjoyed the ride and the gentleman who gave us the private tour was really good. We enjoyed the close up look of so many bridges and the canals with a wonderful history lesson of Venice. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. Was well worth the money spent.
Was great walking tour - very informative win humour!
Venice is a dream. Our guide Elise made us feel welcomed and answered all our questions. The walking tour in the morning with time for lunch and a rest before boat ride at 5:30 was perfect. Highly recommend this tour.
We had a very memorable experience on our venice Canal Cruise, organized by Viator. The duration of the trip included all the highlights covered in the programme and we were not disappointed. There were some stop-overs which allowed us to visit other interesting parts of Venice that we might have overlooked on our 5 day stay. Christina, our charming and knowledgable host provided us with a running commentary of all the facts relating to the venetian scene. We would not wanted to have missed out on this excursion for all the bridges in Venice !!
I definitely recommend this tour. Directions to pick up a bit confusing but did not spoil a thoroughly enjoyable and informative tour. To add to the day the weather was excellent
no skip the line was available. otherwise a great tour and suburb guide
Loved, Loved, Loved Venice!! We were skeptical to visit but were pleasantly surprised! Our tour was easy to find at St Mark's stop. You do need to buy a water ferry pass for the day if you come from the train station and it takes about 50 minutes to reach the main square. We walked all around the plaza, went inside the Cathedral in the early afternoon and then took a boat tour. Since the inside Cathedral lights are only lite from 11-12:30pm to really appreciate all the gold interior be sure to do the morning tour as you may miss a lot in the afternoon. We then walked all around the town and took a couple hours for lunch. We dined at Ristoranti Florida on the canal right past the Rialto Bridge. As soon as you cross take the Rialto Bridge away from the plaza take an immediate left onto the canal and the restaurant is a couple down. The tour also offers several times for the late afternoon boat tour so if you are limited on time then tell them. They were very accommodating and let us go an hour early so we wouldn't miss our train back to Milan. Note: Restrooms are impossible to find so plan your trips accordingly with your meals. Also don't feed the pigeons as there is a fine for doing this as they are unwelcome guests.

Great tour which started at 11am. 1 hour round the Basilica followed by another hour walking the streets of Venice. Barbara our guide was very knowledgeable and funny, which made the subject matter a lot easier to take in and remember. We then had a 3 hour break to do our own sightseeing before going on a small boat for another hour on the grand canal with another knowledgeable guide. Great organisation and well worth the money!
Very, Very disappointed in this tour. The boat driver kept talking constantly on the radio and we could not hear the tour guide. The tour guide seemed much more interested in waving to his friends and making pretty lame jokes. When asked a question his answers were very superficial. Our two subsequent tours left this one in the dust.
Doing what: Venice Grand Canal Boat Tour
The main guide was nothing short of wonderful and I only regret that I somehow managed to forget her name. She was spectacularly good - informative, thorough, charming, witty and very knowledgeable. The second guide - for the boat tour - was pleasant but rather less informative and - I suspect - less knowledgable. However, overall this was a marvellous introduction to Venice.
Great tour and boat ride. Headsets helped so much!
