Thoroughly recommend this trip. A beautiful boat with a small group of people made the experience feel very special. An excellent way to view Venice and learn more of its history, even if a little difficult to hear the guide at times, this did not however detract from the tour of this stunning city.

The tour is a must-do. The guide is very knowledgeable and the motor boat was great. There were only 4 of us plus a couple so e tu of space to enjoy the trip comfortably. You get to see all the best Venice sights from a privileged viewpoint. The kids and myself loved it. Unforgettable!

This is a must have, especially if you want more time with few people and not want to splurge on a gondola ride. The guide will also show you a lot of bridges and buildings. The views are amazing as well.

This tour provides a great introduction to the canal system. The vouchers are easy to exchange at the ticket booth and the tour is well worth it!

Knowledgeable guide and beautiful canal made for a fantastic experience
