Much more than we expected. It ended I up just being the three of us from the same family so we were able to have the drive and the guide all to ourselves. Would highly this experience.

This tour was breathtakingly fabulous, one of the best things I have done anywhere. The boat was indeed luxurious. Tour guide Francesca was perfect - gracious, knowledgeable, fun, fascinating, she went out of her way to ensure I was comfortable and had a great time, even tailoring the tour information to my interest in ancient Romans. Sipping Prosecco in what felt like a limousine or private plane on the water, makes you feel like you're in a movie. And you get to see way more than in a gondola. It's like the difference between going by foot cart and going by sports car. We went to narrow canals, the Grand Canal, under the bridge that brings trains into the city, under the new glass bridge, out in the lagoon a few times, once to see Hotel Cipriani on Giudecca Island, much of which we could never have done in a Gondola, certainly not in the time frame. You can sit inside the boat to eat, stand up with your camera outside, as long as you were safe you were free to move about as you wished. This tour is a must do. It was amazing!
