The tour was perfect and very informative. It is a must for any Venice visitor. I highly recommend this because it offers much more than a gondola ride.
Great tour. Boat small enough to get through the smallest canals.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Grand Canal Boat Tour. We arrived early and our guide allowed us to go with the earlier group which was so kind. She was very knowledgeable and answered questions very patiently. We would definitely recommend this tour when in Venice. :)
Venice's Grand Canal is the heart and soul of the city. And, experiencing it from a motor boat is absolutely great! Plus, we toured a number of side canals to see some of Venice's "side streets." The tour company greeted us 15 minutes before the tour, started the tour promptly, made sure that everyone had a good vantage point aboard the boat, and gave thorough, understandable commentary about everything we saw along the way. They pack a lot of touring into one hour, the most worthwhile time we spent during our day in Venice. It should be included in everyone's first visit to Venice.
Our Grand Canal Boat tour was fantastic, the views were amazing and the guide was great, she new so much and was very interesting with the things that she told us, Definatley take tours while abroad to find out all about the place that you are visiting. P and J England
My husband and I enjoyed our Boat tour of Venice. Our guide was very pleasant and very knowledgeable about Venice. We had just a short time in Venice and by taking the tour we got a great overview of the city.
Absolutely fantastic! Like no other river trip! The guide was marvellous!
Absolutely enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very informative and made the experience very interesting. A must do.
This excursion was the absolute BEST! A small water taxi took about 8 of us up and down the canals. The guide was super. She never stopped talking and was very informative. Made us want to go back and investigate all the marvelous buildings and sites we cruised by.
One bad point. In order to reach tour location we had to spend 15E to travel from our cruise ship into main Venice location. I thought I had inquired concerning this and was advised our embarkation point from ship would be within walking distance of tour point. This problem also existed in Marseillaise. This obviously adds to cost of tour so - especially if this cannot be determined in advance - will probably prevent me from booking other Viator tours when the circumstances are similar.
Enjoyed the tour the guide was very good ,well informed about Venice would recommend this tour
We didn't get to go!!! We were so disappointed. We arrived in Venice and it was raining. We arrived but our luggage didn't. We didn't have any warm clothing and we were not feeling well. We didn't think going for a boat ride in the rain would help our health. We decided not to go. Any chance of getting a refund?
Was very good. Guide was wonderful. A nice pace and way to see Venice.
Our guide was fantastic!! So informed and genuinely excited to tell us the history of what we were seeing and fun facts about the city. Loved the smallness of our group(7) and the length of the tour was just right.
My daughter and I had a great time on this tour. It was not only fun but the guide was very informative about the history of Venice but also the current state of the city. I would very much recommend this boat tour to travelers!
This was an excellent tour and Massimo, our tour guide, was very knowledgable and helpful. The tour lasted about an hour, and covered a number of the smaller back canals as well as the grand canal. There were 8 ppl on the tour, and we could all hear Massimo and see all the interesting sights very clearly. We would definitely recommend this tour. It was one of our many highlights in Venice.
This was a great introduction to Venice, the staff was very nice and very knowledgeable.
The over view and details of the canal tour were a great way to get familiar and enable us to navigate Venice on our own.
Great way to see highlights of Venice. Tour guide was very personable.
A must do in Venice which provides really good information as we travel along the canal..
This is a fantastic way to see Venice... if you do no other tour, don't miss this one. Our guide, Christina, was superb, very friendly and interesting. We will come again, and do this tour again, too.
Great thing to do in Venice, the guides were very knowledgable and friendly, we learned a lot of interesting things about the city, highly recommended !!
