The tour was excellent- only 4 of us. Christina was exceptional. Thorough, interesting and very passionate about Venice.
We saw canals and areas that we probably would not have done.
Well worth the cost
We really enjoyed seeing the Grand Canal and the Jewish ghetto. Our guide was very informative and it was nice to walk around the Jewish ghetto and learn about the history associated with it. It was a great way to see parts of Venice that tourists wouldn't normal see.
This was very nice. We were with one other couple and we got to see all around the Island. It was lovely and the guide did a very nice job of pointing out things and giving us information.
We got to see areas that would not have normally been available. Our guide was knowledgeable and explained what we were seeing for the entire tour. he walking tour was very good, too. We were on the water for most of the 4 hours - Venice is an incredible city and this tour was well worth it. There were only 5 of us on the boat so we had plenty of room to move around and get pictures.
Excellent tour. Our guide was great. Learned a lot.
Great 2 hours on the water in Venice. Even though the tour was 2 hours our guide made sure that we did not miss any points of interest, including the gondola factory. The private taxi was so good rather than being on a public ferry with people who were not on the same tour. The tour finished at a central point where you were able to continue with your own exploring of this wonderful city. Highly recommended, a must when visiting Venice.
This tour should be taken early in your visit to Venice as it gives an overview of the layout of the city and of course of the way in which the intricate system of canals are the arteries of Venetian life. The trip also includes a quick visit to the Jewish quarters which played an important role in the trade industry that was essential to the area. As with most Viator tours our group was small and our guide was excellent.
Great trip. A small group of 6, aboard our own private boat, with cabin or outside space for all, accompanied by an excellent guide called Cristina. A thoroughly enjoyable 2 hours, I would highly recommend it to all new visitors to Venice or indeed to those returning who want to see more than the usual tourist 'hotspots'. We were shown and told many things which you simply could not find on your own. It was my first visit to Venice and I took this on the morning of the first day. It was really interesting, enjoyable and also gave a tremendous overview of areas assisting me in finding my way around afterwards. Such a wonderful tour on a hot summers day and definitely the way to see Venice.
This tour was the highlight of our time in Venice. The guide was wonderful and still very in love with Venice. He promised us boat was the best way to get the big picture of Venice and he was right. We also go on and off the boat and were able to see parts of the city we never would have on foot.
It is a must do if in Venice! You get a completely differenct view point as well as historical information. Well worth the expense!
