    Guide was very knowledgeable! Loved the history of the buildings she pointed out. Boat was comfortable but could use more openings for tourists to stand up and see sights better.

    It was a great way to see pretty much all of Venice on water. We passed the Rialto and académico bridges. The tour guide was knowledgeable about the history of Venice.

    We booked our tour through Viator. While the ride was nice and the tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable, we were left feeling unsatisfied. The boat was not a luxurious boat as the picture depicted. It was a water taxi and even said so on the window. Even worse there were no speakers in the back. So we did not hear any of the history of the city. There were 6 of us so two went to the bow of the boat to hear her, our guide, talk. The others were in the back trying to lip-read. Inside the boat was hot and the speakers cracked. For $600 total after taxes and before tipping, I would say this was a huge disappointment. We told our guide and she said she would pass on our frustration and she apologized. Don’t do this trip.

    Absolutely wonderful. Easy meeting place and very knowledgeable guide. We got a lot out of this one hour tour. Perfect for our group!

    This was a wonderful way to begin our trip to Venice. It gave us the lay of the land so we started feeling comfortable with our surroundings right away.

    We found this tour by searching TripAdvisor for accessible water tours in Venice. When we arrived in Venice we contacted the company directly and was told the tour is not accessible and that no refund was available. The operator's attitude was "not my problem"

    Such a fun way to see the canals of Venice. Our guide was great! She was informative and fun! It was the first thing we did in Venice and it was a great way to start our trip.

    Ideal way to see Venice. Informative and relaxing. Our guide shared lots of interesting info about Venice today and in the past.

    We were told to meet at a meeting point for 17:00, however no one was there. We ended up missing it. Poor

    This was a great experience. Our guide, Christina, was knowledgeable pointing out great sites with background stories. With this local knowledge you get the inside scoop on how Venice evolved. We’d been in Venice for 2 days by the time we took this tour and my only regret is that we didn’t do it sooner as there were a number of undiscovered places we would have visited….next time!!
