    Wonderful boat tour around Venice. I would recommend this tour instead of a (overrated) gondola ride. Our tour guide met us at the ticket stand and took us to our private taxi boat. Couldn't ask for a better hour around Venice--even in a little rain. The only confusing thing about the reservation is the ticket says you need to show up at the ticket stand and exchange the voucher prior to the tour. This wasn't needed--we ended up meeting the guide at the ticket stand at our tour's time.

    This tour is a Must Do to get a feel for Venice. We understood Venice much better after seeing it all by boat. Our guide Alisa (hope I am spelling her name correctly) was excellent. She gave us history and stories and information on everything that we saw. We highly recommend this tour. It was well worth the two hours.

    Boat was 30 minutes late. Tour lasted 40 minutes, not 60. We finished in the dark. Guide was great. Too bad the water taxi service wasn't. Reached out to Bucintoro Viaggi about it and they never responded. Neither did trip adviser. I hate leaving a bad review, but this was really disappointing for 550 bucks. Absolutely not worth it.

    Simona was a superb guide, with a deep well of knowledge about Venice and a most engaging personality. She brought Venice to life and made all of us wish we could spend more time here. As she said at the beginning of the tour - Venice is a city on and of the water, and the best way to see the city is from the water. We agree.

    The most memorable part of this trip was seeing things that you would just never see in Venice unless you had weeks to spend here (e.g. the hands sculptures at the military base). Our guide, Catti, was absolutely terrific. There was a long delay with the boat, however - about 30 minutes. It was a lovely evening so we are glad that we waited, but we should not have had to. The tour was entirely by water - which is what we wanted. Some reviewers experienced part boat/part walking tours but we did not, it. It has been the highlight of our trip to Venice!

    Elissa was a fantastic and knowledgeable host. A native of Venice, she had a wealth of history To share.

    Definitely a highlight of our trip! We couldn’t figure out if we should do a gondola ride or a boat trip and I’m so happy we made the choice we did. Our guide Elisa was so outgoing and knowledgeable and we were able to see so much more of Venice in an hour than we would have in a gondola. The only downside is that the departure location was extremely confusing to find. You go to the dock that is near the Illy coffee shop. To check in, you need to go to what looks like a public ferry ticket booth.

    Private two hour boat tour of Venice and the lagoons. Our was extremely knowledgeable and the boat driver was fun too. Worth the price!

    Thank you so much to Ketty and Paulo for an amazing tour of Venice. Ketty was so informative and a really lovely guide. She told us everything we needed to know and we felt so comfortable with her. The tour itself was so nice and was the highlight of our stay. Absolutely recommended!

    Our guide was very knowledgeable and we had so much fun with her. She was able to give all the pertinent information about key sites without going into to much detail. We would recommend this for anyone who would like to see Venice during the sunset. It was beautiful.
