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
Less than 10 people on each boat. Great guide. After it goes up the Grand Canal, it goes back to the starting point through some of the smaller rivers.
Loved it! Saw so much more than from a gondola! Well worth the money.
We would highly recommend this trip. We were in a group of 8 people and our tour guide was very informative and helpful. Well worth it!
What an amazing experience. There were a total of seven of us on the boat and our tour guide was fabulous and spoke perfect English and could answer all our questions, it was an education all by itself. We left on time and the weather was great for touring. The guide even made suggestions as to other tours we could take in order to appreciate the culture of the people in Venice. I was so relaxed and taken up with the history that I was disappointed when we arrived back to our destination. Take this tour, you would not be disappointed.
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
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
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.
