This was one of the highlights of our trip. It gave us a great opportunity to see a lot of Venice and learn about some of its history and its buildings. I felt much safer on this type of boat than I would have on a gondola particularly when we were out in the open sea. Our guide was lovely (you could see she really enjoyed her job) - she gave us accurate information about some of the Venetian buildings but wasn't over the top.
This boat tour took us almost all around Venice and wetted our appetite for discovering some of its hidden quarters. The next day we spent the day in Dorsoduro and Santa Croce which are away from the busy St Mark's square area and are well worth looking at. We followed our explorations the following day with an afternoon in Castello. I would highly recommend this tour to visitors to Venice.
This was a brilliant tour. The guide was enthusiastic and answered any questions we had. You can see so much of Venice from the water, and I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting Venice.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and took us down some fascinating and very picturesque little canals.
This was a small group tour - 6 people - in a motor boat. It was really worth doing as we had a really good view of places and an excellent commentary from the knowledgeable guide.
Excellent tour guide, wonderful view of venice, covering all the main areas
Thoroughly enjoyable and very interesting. Gondolas are enjoyment but this tour opens your eyes. A must do
A must do for first time visitors. Seeing Venice from the Canal is an unforgettable experience.
Amazing tour. Everyone should do this! Very informative and beautiful. Our tour guide was great and knew tons of interesting information and secrets of Venice! Such a great way to see how beautiful Venice Is.
This tour was perfect. We were in small groups in beautiful Venetian taxis - so plenty of room and every one could see. The guide was wonderful - witty and so knowledgeable.
Well worth every penny - and actually very reasonable given Venice prices.
Our group of four went on this tour with another couple and it was fantastic! We cringed at the thought of a gondola ride through the canals with the million other tourists and thought this the best way to see Venice...and we weren't wrong. We got a very thorough tour of Venice with fantastic narrative from our female guide. We were more than impressed and would highly recommend it to others.
Cold day but the grand canal boat trip was worth it. Got to see far more than a typical gondala ride and reallly saw the diverse history
