Well organized, small group. Great way to get your bearings in beautiful Venice. Also a good way to spend the hottest part of the day on the water!
Quick and easy boarding-Tour guide at designated spot on time and quite cheerful! Well kept vessel for tour and our guide was full of local knowledge and very engaging. We boated through many small canals and finally among the Grand Canal. Perfect day to understand Venice and see many places we needed to walk to on our visit. It was our first time to Venice and the tour was very informative and casual, giving us a good perspective of what to expect on our visit. Highly recommended for first time travelers!
I had booked this tour for our first afternoon in Venice to help us get our bearings and also to give us an introduction to the City.
We had a little difficulty finding the location of the meeting point as there seemed to be two entrances to the Royal Gardens but we stood between the two until we saw a crowd gathering in front of one. From thereonin it was easy enough. The guide led us onto the boat which was a few metres away and we were off. There was enough room for four people to stand at the back of the boat and four people to sit at the front.
We were led down many smaller canals, where we learned about how Venice was built, the way of life, the hospitals, means of transportation etc, before going back on to the Grand Canal where our guide pointed out famous buildings and sights. He also gave us lots of fun facts and made the tour very interesting in the way he presented it. It was a great way to start our trip!
Our beautiful Venetian guide explained the highlights of Venice to us, explaining its history. Lovely day and wonderful little boat tour. Our boat boarded at the dock near San Marco Square. Very nice sharing the waterway with the gondola's and the vaporettos.
Venice is a great city to just walk around in, but definitely should get a perspective from the water, too, as the canals are really the roads. Our group was about 8 people, and transportation a small water taxi, which was ideal...still fairly small and intimate but able to cover a lot of territory, initially going up a couple of smaller canals, than about halfway around the perimeter of the island, then the full length of the Grand Canal
Loved this boat tour! Wonderful guide, loved being able to move through the canals and cover more area with the motor boat option.
This was way better and longer than a gondola ride. Not to mention that the boat is bitter/more stable than a gondola. Also, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining, which was a bonus! Highly recommend!
Great little boat tour to get around to see Venices waterways. We were late and missed our original time slot but was allowed on the next one,very good of the tour guide, which I forgot her name but she was excellent and knowledgeable about Venice. Well worth doing it as an introduction to Venice.
A great way to see and get aquainted with Venice, highly recommend
Great tour and well worth the money. Guide was great and knowledgeable. Comfortable boat especially on a cold day. On time. Good fun. Gondola ride is good...this was great....Thanks
