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.
I really enjoyed the Grand Canal Boat tour. The tour guide was very informative and friendly. I highly recommend this tour.
Very good way to see Venice and get interesting information without paying an arm and a leg! I suggest you take it in the late afternoon to avoid the heat and get to see the amazing afternoon colors of the city.
Venice Grand Canal Boat Tour was very good the boat was excellent and our guide was very informative. he gave us a good background about Venice. Really I enjoyed it.
Outstanding. Great tour guide and boat. We had a leisurely ride through the city and received an excellent narrative along the way. This is a must-see tour of Venice. Every visitor should have the opportunity to see the city from the perspective of the canals.
Very small group gave us plenty of room to move around and even stand up on the outdoor seats to take pictures. Our guide was great! I only wish we could have kept on going. This is a great tour to do upon arrival to give you a quick look at the Grand Canal and decide which spots you want re-visit.
This was an exceptional good tour! Our guide, Kristina Kmetova was really excellent. She spoke English and talked slowly and clearly. I learned so much about Venice. She showed us all the interesting sites and gave clear interesting facts about Venice. This tour was not only interesting but very enjoyable and entertaining! I wished we took this tour the first day that we arrived, but unfortunately I scheduled it on the last day. Farewell Kristina, keep up the good work!
The Grand Canal Boat Tour was fantastic! The guide we had was full of knowledge, was enthusiastic and engaged you in everything you saw! Beautiful city. Would recommend this tour to everyone. 5 stars!
very nice trip well worth it tour guide was very informative even when we asked a questions
THE PERFECT WAY TO SEE VENICE FROM THE WATER AND A DIFFERENT WAY TO VIEW OF ALL THE BEAUTY. WE HAD A WONDERFUL TOUR AND A GREAT DAY. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
A must really you need to have the guide to know what you are looking at, even saw Elton Johns house who would have known!!!
I have been to Venice 3 times and never took a small boat or a gondola before, so this was truly an amazing experience.
Spectacular ! Wonderful tour guide ! Think her name was KC....Great venues on the trip ! Highly recommend !
My parents really enjoyed this trip.The guide was very informative and explained many things which we would have never known on our own.
Great trip with a great guide who pointed out many, many sights and their history. You see much of the same buildings going from the railway station to lido on the huge water taxi but this is more informative and relaxing. Also went thru some smaller canals. Tour was 60 minutes.
Our grand canal boat trip was brilliant worth every penny. we had someone called sergei (probably spelt wrong) who was a fantastic guide as well as really funny. He was very informative and the trip took in all of the canal definately a must do trip. would highly recommend.
Loved it! Such a wonderful guide with so much information . Highly recommended
