This was actually a really great tour to do. I was travelling on my own and really wanted to see parts of Venice that are not on the tourist track. So this was a perfect way to see some of the neighbourhoods from the water. Plus having the tour guide was wonderful to explain what's what. Highly recommend. Especially good if you are doing a short stay and big to do list. I would put this at the top.
We had the lively and lovely Georgia guiding our tour. It was the perfect amount of time and a great general over view of the main artery of Venice - the Grand Canal.
This was great. Small groups so not jammed packed and saw so much of Venice that would would of not otherwise - plus the guide was informative and fun. They were so helpful - we took my 83 old mother and they really were considerate
Excellent tour of Venice waterways with small group. Great guide and boat captain. Would do it again. Good Value
It was fun and interesting. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. This is the best way to see most of the important sites of Venice, unless you prefer walking for miles and miles...only complaint was that the tour was too short for the price...one hour to be precise.
Loved this tour!!! Really a must if you have the opportunity. Christina our tour guide was interesting and knowledgeable. Venice is magical from the water!! You are really able to travel through areas not seen by land.
Our tour guide was great: very knowledgeable and well prepared.
We loved this trip. It was a nice small group, small enough to have a wee chat with other passengers but also for everyone to get a great view and for the information from the guide to feel tailored to us. Highly recommend
What a fantastic way to see Venice as this tour not only takes in the Grand Canal but also other extremely interesting parts of Venice. From the cute river taxi and great driver to the wonderful super knowledgeable guide this is an experience you will love and never forget. Venice is an amazing, wonderful place and this tour compliments it beautifully. I would 100 recommend.
I was worried at first that this was going to be a big tour and wouldn't be able to see anything on the boat. But we were divided in groups of 10. Half of the group stayed in the front and other half stayed in the back of the boat. Our tour guide, Christina, was great and very informative. It was great to see Venice from the water. Definitely recommend!
Fantastic. Of course the scenery was great, but what made it special was the knowledge and cheerfulness of our guide Christina.
Our guide was engaging and knowledgeable. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the city of Venice. One of the best experiences. Highly recommend this tour.
A wonderful way to see Venice. We opted not to take a costly short gondola ride. We throughly enjoyed tthia time seeing the sights and sounds of the canals. Standing in the back of this water taxi tour boat gave us a birds eye view of the canals with our very knowledgeable tour guide . Highly recommend this tour.
Very well done and great tour guide full of interesting information! I would definitely recommend this to a friend was so lovely seeing the island from a different perspective as I was keen to do a gondola ride haha.

Great overview of venice and being able to see the sights from the water!! Excellent tour!!
Perfect! Our tour guide Christina was very friendly, and informative about the various sites in Venice, along with fun behind the scenes facts. And best of all, NO WALKING! Your get to enjoy Venice with all its charm from a relaxing seat in a boat. This is by far better than the walking tours, and the gondolas!
Great Tour. Very well worth going. Small group of people. Very informative guide. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
I'm so glad I chose this tour over a gondola trip! We got to see so much more of Venice, back canals where most people don't go. Our tour guide was excellent too!
Fabulous tour and guides!! I have used Viator all over the world and you cannot go wrong with their tours - always safe, informative and fun!

One of my favorite tours! Great way to see Venice while relaxing. We did the boat ride later in the day which was perfect. I highly recommend!
This was the perfect tour to view Venice by boat. We had a very knowledgeable guide who shared history, humor and her love of her home city.
It was nice. A great way to begin touring the area. We would recommend touring the area by boat tour or boat taxi before beginning walking the area. It is a great way to get an overview of the area. Just watch your head when you go under bridges!
