This one hour tour was great as it took us along the canals where we wouldn't have gone on our own to see the real Venice away from the tourists.It started by going out near the islands where the gondolas couldn't go so a real mix of sights. Our guide was very good, giving us background information all the time.

Everything about the tour was as advertised. Meeting place was easy to locate, rep showed on time, group was escorted to the boats and the tour began. As a first time visitor to Venice, the Grand Canal Tour was the perfect introduction to such a beautiful city! I recommend this tour to everyone, whether first timers or frequent visitors.

Small group of 8, cruising the Grand Canal and smaller back canals, learning about the history and architecture styles, including locations of George Clooney's wedding etc! Fun and relaxing and better bang for you buck than a gondola ride!

My wife and I both enjoyed this tour and as we had it on our first day in Venice we were able to use the info we got to check out the places the next day. The tour guide commentator spoke very good English so no communiction problems.

We were on a Tauck Tour which was wonderful, but which did not include a Grand Canal tour. Realizing this, we accessed "Grand Canal Tours", found Viator's, booked it on line a week before we were due to arrive in Venice, with no problem. We took the tour at 5:30 pm on the afternoon of our first day in Venice and found it to be a peerless orientation to that magical city. Our tour guide, Christina was welcoming, knowledgeable and beautiful. What a grand introduction to a grand city!
Feel free to use this endorsement as you will.
Many thanks!!!
