What people are saying about Padua

A very well-planned and organized cruise, pleasant and relaxing.

We wanted a cruise or tour of some kind to introduce us to this area of Italy. Neither of us like big crowds so this seemed perfect, small, intimate, low-pressure and low stress. We both were very sick the day before our original booking, I emailed and the company switched us immediately to another date, no problems and no fuss. The tour guide herself was thoroughly delightful and even asked how we were feeling, she knew. She just oozed information and stories. The pace was perfect along the canal. The visits to the palazzas was great fun and enlightening, a look into a very different time and life-style. Once we got to Venice, we were not abandoned, the guide (Francesca? I'm sorry I didn't write her name down but so very sweet and informative) made sure we all knew where to go next and how to get there. Also, a very good value for the cost.

Enjoyable, very interesting and informative trip in comfort.

An excellent day from beginning to end, with an extremely knowledgeable guide, fluent in a number of languages, who was clearly passionate about the history and architecture of the region. The organisation was superb, even accounting for the fact that the waterway was un-navigable in part, due to the damage caused by the recent tornado. The vessel itself afforded a high level of comfort, with a sun-deck and air-conditioned lower deck where there was a small bar with coffee, alcoholic beverages and snacks available and friendly and attentive staff.

Lovely peaceful day drifting gently down the river to Venice.

The guide was lovely and delivered a lot of very interesting information throughout the trip in several languages. The three villa’s we visited were all worth seeing and with something unique to each so they were not all the same. There are some scarily low bridges on the river that meant it was not safe the be on the upper deck for some parts of the trip but there were no bridges on the last stretch so we sat on the upper deck then and it was a really lovely way to arrive in Venice.

A very satisfactory day on the Brenta canal

The guide explained everything well in Italian and English - it was clear that she could also do French and German. Three well chosen villas to inspect. Lots to see from the boat. Be careful to keep heads down when passing under the very very low bridges,

Peaceful excursion, highly recommendable

Excellent comments during the whole day-trip by the guides, visit in small (splitted) groups of 3 beautiful Villas Kind an knowledgeable Information on Venice transports including very helpful ticket sale
