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!
Christina our guide was excellent. It was a little rainy, but this is a good tour off the beaten path and Christina is very fun and knowledgeable.
Loved this tour, see lots of different areas of Venice. Excellent guide.

The highlight of our cruise,Our guide Sergio was very knowledgeable. He explained everything and made the tour a pleasure. I asked him about a good place to eat lunch and he recommended a restaurant that had to be the best in Venice. Thanks for everything. Steve
Excellent tour, our guide Christina was amazing, we all really enjoyed this tour it gave us all a good overview of Venice. Would definitely recommend it is worth it.
Do this tour on your first day in Venice to orientate yourself to the city, learn about the history and taste the best gelato ever! Christina took us away from the beaten track with just a small group of 6 people to show us how Venetians used to live and how they live now.
