Well organised, enjoyable tour.
A very hot day in Venice so nice to finish on this and have some breeze on the water.
Seeing things from the water gives a different perspective.
The groups were small. Our guide was knowledgeable and interested in her subject and made sure that we all got a good view and an enjoyable experience.
Great, small group tour! Easy to find and gives a nice introduction to Venice.
The Grand Canal Boat Tour was the first activity we did after arriving in Venice. Eight passengers on the bus was perfect and audio system made it easy to hear the knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide Christina. This is a definite must-do activity!
This is a really great way to see round Venice. The commentary was informative but not too high brow so we would thoroughly recommend this trip as a way to have a general overview and then work out what you would like to go back and see in greater detail
Excellent tour of city and sights and fun boat ride, well worth time and money, highly suggest going 5-6 hour iof the day when daylight is most beautiful!
Excellent tour and trip along the canal. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered all questions and made the tour very interesting. Definitely recommend, great way to see Venice and take a trip on the canal.
The tour of the canal was great! It was fun riding in this luxurios Italian Taxi boat. The canal was very busy with boats, gondolas, and vaporettos. Our guide and taxi driver did a good job guiding us through the canal, as well as, pointing out interesting Hollywood tidbits regarding hotels.
Great basic tour of the grand canal. The guide was informative and friendly.
This is a great tour to take when you arrive in Venice, as an introduction to the city.
This tour was amazing. Great narrative and wonderful sights. I would recommend this tour.

Fantastic trip. Tour guide very knowledgeable and you see parts of Venice you might not see otherwise!
Fantastic tour. The guide was funny and knowledgeable and gracious. He really worked hard to share his knowledge with us. can't recommend this tour enough. You get out amongst the neighborhoods and away from the hordes in Venice proper. Money well spent!
Fantastic experience and great tour guide. Christine Highly recommend. We arrived early in the afternoon and did this tour Late afternoon on the first day. Gives you an overview of the city and then you can explore areas that you like. Gives you a view from the canal and goes to smaller canals as well. Like the size of the group. Tourists just remember to look for your guides in front of the gardens. Instructions clearly state this but I was looking for people on the water front. Well worth it.
Very, Very disappointed in this tour. The boat driver kept talking constantly on the radio and we could not hear the tour guide. The tour guide seemed much more interested in waving to his friends and making pretty lame jokes. When asked a question his answers were very superficial. Our two subsequent tours left this one in the dust.
Fabulous tour ! We started our 3 day trip to Venice with this tour. It was such an amazing experience and a perfect start to give us an overall view of Venice and it's history.
The tour was on schedule and our guide was very informative and enthusiastic. Plenty of space on the boat to take photos as there was only 8 people on board.
We booked 3 tours with Viator.com online. They were extremely efficient and our booking confirmations were e mailed to us in plenty time. It was a simple process and everything went according to plan.
Wonderful tour! Really enjoyed the sights and getting to learn more about the city. The tour guide was very friendly and informative.
This was actually a really great tour to do. I was travelling on my own and really wanted to see parts of Venice that are not on the tourist track. So this was a perfect way to see some of the neighbourhoods from the water. Plus having the tour guide was wonderful to explain what's what. Highly recommend. Especially good if you are doing a short stay and big to do list. I would put this at the top.
We had the lively and lovely Georgia guiding our tour. It was the perfect amount of time and a great general over view of the main artery of Venice - the Grand Canal.
