Know More about this tour

For adventurous travelers, the best way to view the romantic gondola-filled waterways, bridges, and cafe-lined piazzas of Venice, is on the water, as youll see on this one and a half hour private kayak tour departing between 10am and 7pm on request from Central Venice. No kayaking experience is needed, just your sense of wonder, and a willingness to explore famous sites including the Rialto Bridge and Marco Polos house and lesser-known neighborhoods. Unfortunately, the tour is not wheelchair accessible or suitable for children younger than 4-years-old. Your guide will helpyou choose a pedal- or oar-powered kayak, and provide steering and stopping lessons. Then youll set off on serene Venetian waters past the famous sites of the Grand Canal as your guide explains some of the Gothic, Byzantine, and Moorish influences in the architecture and history of the city andyou marvel at brightly-colored brick buildings, piers, and porches that seem to float as you pass by. Youll venture away from the crowds and well-known sites into backwater neighborhoods where youll see daily life as locals repair boats, prepare food, travel to and from work, and shop in the local markets, all on the water. Your tour will end in Central Venice where you can continue exploring the rich history of one of Italys most unique and magical cities.

  • This was a great way to see the Grand Canal up close and personal. Nadir was a terrific guide and instructor for us newbie kayakers. Thanks so much Nadir!

  • Lot of fun! I would do it again!

  • We did a late afternoon Kayak tour and it was great! People were asking us where they could sign up for it while we were kayaking under the bridges of Venice. As for attire, wear their stuff it will get wet. there are lockers for personal stuff as well. we did the 1.5 hour tour and it was just the right amount of time. also used the 2 man kayak so more pictures could be taken. Overall great time!

  • Wow! Such a unique way to see Venice! Phillipo and his crew were wonderful. They were very accomodating and patient. It was fantastic to travel slowly down the ancient waterways and view the canals up and personal. You actually cross the Grand Canal twice, and this was truly amazing and completely unlike the taxis or gondolas.

    Kindly, they offer clothing to use and we did not use them. This was a mistake! No matter how careful, all six of us got a bit wet and the water is yuck. So, I would simply plan your day to return to shower after the tour.

    I also strongly suggest the double-kayak with the foot peddles in the front. This way one person can easily take pictures. Plus, there are two people to power the kayak. I have kayaked probably a dozen times on lakes and rivers, but this type of kayaking is vastly different with the need for more precise steering in the canals, primarily to avoid oncoming and parked boats and gondola traffic. This is not for children. Listen to the guides as they are very helpful.

    I would definitely do this kayak tour again!

  • I will do this again. Absolutely, fun and adventure. Guide was great, not enough good things to say. Just a FYI, the description is a bit confusing regarding your attire. Wear whatever you want, they give you clothes to wear. Take an extra pair of undies though, you will get a bit wet.

  • This was brilliant! I had a guide all to myself who was very knowledgeable about the ciy and it was a great experience along the side canals with the gondolas. Lots of small snippets of history and then some more adrenalin sections crossing the Grand Canal. Cant fault the experience!!

  • This tour was simply perfect! The tour guides were very friendly, polite, and accessible by email or phone. The kayaks were clean, new, and comfortable. The company lent us water shoes, and shorts and tops were available as well. The 90 minute tour takes place in mostly quiet rios, but you still intermingle with gondolas and private boats. Crossing the Grand Canal is quick but exciting! Just the right amount of information was offered during the tour. I have kayaked only twice before yet I did not find this tour difficult to do. Highlight of our time in Venice!
