One of the coolest experiences of my life thanks to our lovely tour guide on this tour. The water taxi was driven by some young Venetian who knew the canals well, but note well, they drive their boats like they drive their cars so at some points, there were some sharp turns. But for the most part, our driver was pretty smooth. Our tour guide I THINK her name was Julia... she was fantastic and very warm was also Venetian and was a great story teller who touched on local history as well as ghost stories and she was happy to stop and answer any of our strange questions about every day life in Venice!
The tour lasted about 1.5-2 hours total and we were provided a bottle of verduzzo a traditional Venetian dessert wine and cicchetti traditional Venetian appetizer - the ones we had were sort of like canapes to snack on while we were touring. We shared this with one other person hysterical Australian chick, but the boat could probably hold up to 3 more people.
Definitely a great way to see all of Venice and in my opinion, a much better bang for your buck as the gondola rides cost a fortune! Highly recommended!
Excellent tour. Our guide Giovanna was great. This a must do while in Venice.
No one booked the tour so it become a private tour for Hubby and myself. We loved it.
What a terrific way to see Venice!! Giovanna was waiting for us with an Urban adventures sign along with the water taxi when the 8 of us arrived 15 minutes early...so we 'launched' into the tour straight away. Six of us had been to Venice before but had never seen the city from the canals other than by the short 'bus' trips. Giovanna gives us an ongoing commentary of the city, it's history, architecture, and culture whilst we sipped on champagne and sampled the chicchetti provided. Fantastic opportunity for photos as the sun set and a cruise ship moved out of the Grand Canal. Definitely recommend!!
This was awesome. Our Guide was great, very helpful and knowledgeable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND !
Super fun and a great way to experience the Grand Canal. Our guides (one was "in training") were fantastic and a blast. Our driver was very experienced in getting us around. We LOVED it!!
Much more enjoyable than we had envisioned--a wonderful way to see Venice from the canals, with a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide, nice supported with food and drink. Highly recommended.
On our first night in Venice we enjoyed the Water Taxi Cruise with a delightful, informative guide. The perspective from the water helped in subsequent days with orientation when wandering the maze that is Venice. We enjoyed Cicchetti and prosecco while hearing about Venice history and past/current culture/lifestyle. This tour was delightful.
What a fun way to see Venice! We spent 2 hours floating the canals of Venice! Our tour guide Francesca did an amazing job with the history of of this amazing city. Well worth the money! Highly recommended!
the water Taxi Cruise was amazing!! our guide was exceptional. I would tell everyone I know to take this cruise. The wine and authentic Hors d'oeuvre were a nice touch as well. I can't wait to come back this this beautiful city again really soon.
