Our tour was changed to one hour, but we were notified well in advance. Our guide, Christina, was excellent, even in very cold conditions. Highly recommend.

The cruise was great. I really liked that it was a small group. Our guide was wonderful. She brought the history and magic of Venice to life.

This was a fabulous way to see Venice by boat. It was the size of and same type of boat as the water taxis. The guide was very informative. It was a small group. He covered most of the Grand Canal, got off briefly in the Jewish Getto, and saw some of the less touristy back canals. Really an awesome tour, well worth it!

What a way to see Venice! Loved the tour

The only downside - one of the boat drivers was on the phone speaking loudly during the early part of the tour which made it difficult to hear the guide. Several of us talked to the tour guide, she immediately spoke with him, it stopped.

Loved cruising around the island and learning all about Venice. Our guide Cristina spoke excellent english and was very knowledgable. The time flew by before we realized it it was over. Highly recommend this tour for an overview of some of the best of Venice.

This was fabulous! It rained on and off during our tour but we didn't have to worry because we could go inside the boat during the showers and opned the roof completely during the sun. Our guide was thoughtful and great at explaining botht the large historical facts and small interesting details about Venice. We gained a much greater understanding of the canal systems than we thought possible. This trip is enjoyable, informative and fun. It is a great way to spend 3 hours in Venice

Great tour. Small group. The tour uses a private water taxi to tour small canals and waterways such as the dock yard, the Jewish ghetto and several cathedrals and towers. The tour travels down the grand canal visiting many stately houses, museums, public buildings and the Rialto bridge. Get your cameras ready for there's lots to see. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we stopped to take a half hour walking tour of the old and newer Jewish ghetto. Plan to get there early for it is easy to get lost in Venice and the boat will leave without you if you are more than 5 or 10 minutes late.

We loved this tour! Only 3 of us actually turned up, so it was more like a private tour experience, but the tour guide was lovely and provided lots of interesting information. I think if there were more people our experience may have been a little less comfortable on the boat, but as it stands we had a fantastic trip!

Excellent tour of all of the canals in Venice with detailed commentary. The water taxi was smaller in size. Seven were on our tour with three and the guide standing in the front and three standing in the back and one remaining inside the covered boat. An open-air boat would have better served the tour.

What a great way to get off the beaten path. The tour was on the other side of Venice that's at the edge of maps. Our tour guide was extraordinarily knowledge and pleasant. We really did go where there were no other tourists. It was a nice split between a comfortable boat ride and walking through special neighborhoods.

Barbarella was a wonderful guide and we cruised through canals of Venice in private water taxi. Fun way to spend a couple of hours seeing Venice from the3 water rather than busy streets.

We really enjoyed our Grand Canal tour with Stephanie. She was very knowledgable and passionate about Venice. The Jewish Ghetto was a highlight and we were so glad we didn't miss this part of Venice. Our teenage boys loved being on the water and seeing the city from that vantage point. We would highly recommend!!

An outstanding tour! Our guide, Kristina Kmetova, was one of best I've ever had! Despite the fact that my wife and I had taken a 1 hour boat tour the day before, this 2 hour tour was worth every Euro. We went to places we had not been, and we also made a number of stops where we got off the boat and walked around. They included but were not limited to exploring the Jewish Ghetto and visiting the shop where Venetian gondolas are expertly constructed. All of this was accompanied by a fascinating narrative supplied by Krisina, as well as humorous side stories. This is a must do tour, even if you've been to Venice before!

Only way to go to get a really good overview of Venice. Loved that we had a very small group and great tour guide. Forget the Vaperetto for this so many people and so many stops. This is the way to go for a really nice tour of Venice.

This was a fantastic way to experience parts of Venice we would never have found. Our guide was fabulous. We got to know Venice and #39;s history as well as more current events. The motorboat was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

Our guide was very professional and knowledgeable about Venice. She gave us some insights to what we should do while out and about including going to the top of the department store, where we had incredible views of the city.

Excellent tour off the beaten path. Our guide was just great and very knowledgeable about the history of Venice and we saw many things that I would not have had any idea were in this beautiful city. Highly recommend this tour!

Learned a great deal about Venice on this small-group boat tour. Our guide Christina, if I remember correctly was first-rate - she was personable, articulate, and displayed a great command of Venetian history and landmarks. We discovered several neighborhoods and attractions on the tour that we would have missed otherwise - we ended up going back to several over the next few days. The boat was immaculate and very comfortable. And seeing Venice from the canals gives one an entirely different perspective of this great city. Highly recommend this tour!

Taking this tour was money well spent! My mother, age 78, has neuropathy in her feet and cannot feel them at all. She also has had both knees replaced, so we were concerned whether or not she would even be able to get into and out of the motorboat. You can't imagine how thrilled we were that it all went much better than we had imagined! Our guide, Christine, and our boat driver were punctual, helpful, friendly, knowledgable, and patient. We saw SOOOO much more of the city than we ever would have, had Mom and I had to walk it with Mom's walker! We were able to take the walker onboard, so Mom was able to use it and walk the Jewish Ghetto section of the tour with the group. Seeing the old military shipbuilding area and meandering through the smaller canals were the highlights for me. Five stars to rate this tour really are not enough.
